I downloaded the free Firefox 3.6exe (numbers 2, 3, and 4) and the message that my computer is unprotected and that I need to download the above continues to appear when I log on. Is there something else I need to do to get rid of the message and to ensure online protection?

firefox 4 on macbook pro won't install, get error msg "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

MBP OSX 10.6.7 4GB/250GB 2.4MHz

"The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

Error appears when trying to drag Firefox 4 to App folder

Oddly, on my Mac desktops, the install app says that "a newer version of what your trying to install is in your apps folder". No problems with installation and running FF 4.

On the MBP, it (correctly) says that an older version exists...but no installation and above error msg.

Every time I open the browser, the cookies have been cleaned out so I have to re input passwords and other information.

This same thing happened last year and I can't recall how I solved it. I have an sbcglobal.net email address and I customized a homepage. I also customzed an Awesome Start Google page with 8 different links to frequently visited websites. I also have passwords and logins saved for places such as live journal, facebook and twitter. Now, all of a sudden each time I open my browser, the homepage is a generic ATT page and I have to log in to get my mail - which didn't work over and over because ATT kept telling me my username or password was wrong, which it wasn't. I called them and they showed me how to reset a password and at first it worked, but then it happened again. Anyway, my internet provider is Comcast, so ATT can't really help all that much since I don't have an official account with them. Also, now each time I open the browser, the Awesome start page is back to defaults with none of my links. Also, I have to relogin to facebook, twitter, etc. I don't really use the feature from Firefox where they ask if I want the password saved, so that's not an issue. I do have Roboform and use that. Anyway, could you please tell me how to repair these problems, perhaps something to do with the profile folder - which I did try to find using the instructions, but it looked different than on your page. Help!

After upgrading from MS Office Professional 2007 to MS Office Home & Office 2010, I can't copy & paste text selections from the internet into MS Word 2010 documents. When I use MS Internet Explorer to browse the internet, I can copy & paste text selections into MS Word 2010 documents just fine. Prior to changing to MS Office 2010, there was no noticeable difference in copy & paste into MS Word 2007 with Firefox or MS Internet Explorer. Seems like MS Word 2010 is blocking the use of Firefox to copy & paste internet text selections into MS Word documents.

When I am typing an blog or e-mail and hit backspace, instead of deleting the character, Firefox navigates backwards...which erases everything I type. Firefox does not cache or save anything so I have to start over.

I tried options, setting, preferences...I cannot find a way to turn this annoying 'feature' off.
