I installed some extensions (e.g. flagfox) while logged in to my user account. I have admin access on my home network running Ubuntu. How do I make these extensions available to other users on the network? Surely they don't each need to download/install a separate copy?

For 2-3 weeks bookmark file cannot be added to although it still exists. It happened about the time the Google etc option was added at the right top. For a couple of weeks a small subset of bookmarks with stars has been offered but until yesterday nothing under the bookmarks dropdown menu. Yesterday 3 random bookmarks from the main file suddenly appeared for the first time in this drop down menu. I have tried all the suggested options to correct bookmark problems. I do not have any of the rogue addons or Norton. I use Zonealarm extreme.

I installed the new Beta and didn't like it because there were no large themes. I uninstalled it and then went to Mozilla via Internet Explorer and downloaded and installed Firefox 3.6. For hours I have tried to install 3.6 themes and I keep getting messages that say I'm running 3.0.

I am unable to implement upgrades due to lost password record. Can I remove the current version of Firefox and install new version of the software? Email: shealy####@x.xxx

When I bring up Firefox I get an alert stating that my version of Firefox needs to be updated due to security issues. I run a Imac with a 10.5 version of the OS. In the past when I have tried to update the software the OS requests a administrative password. Passwords have turned into a tracking nightmare (at least it seems so for me). When I try to use (create) a password I am alerted that the password is in use, not available to me and hence I must dig deep and come up with a new one. I have been employed in the computer industry for over 30 + years and I am burned out on password creation. I started keeping a list of my passwords but have lost the record and now find myself unable to implement recommended changes because I cannot provide the requested password. I wondering if it would work if I just deleted the software needing and upgrade and download the latest stuff.

Thank you, Scott Healy

I upgraded to firefox 5 and my google toolbar went. I was sent a solution that worked on one of the machines in my home. Despite trying to use that same link to add the missing toolbar to this machine, firefox keeps telling me that I am using firefox 3. I have just installed firefox 5 twice more, I have been doing this for the last two weeks. Still it insists I'm using the old version. It is most infuriating as a spell check is vital. I'm aware I can right click on a word but that is an American dictionary and I'm English and like to spell correctly. What can resolve this before I uninstall firefox and find an alternative browser?
