I'm on a G3 iMac. On a "new to me" G5 iMac; I moved Firefox 3.5.6 from the G3. When I open Firefox the G5 says "quit Firefox, Firefox is open, can't have >1 copy open". Firefox isn't open, only finder. What to do?

There was a Firefox 3.6 installed on the G5 by a friend, but my profile was not installed. To be sure of compatibility, I trashed the Firefox 3.6 and copiedFirefox 3.5.6 from the G3 (where it runs fine) to the G5. I also copied my profile. On the G5, I had moved the Firefox icon onto the dock. I checked finder and there is only one application of Firefox on the G5 hard drive. Just now I started the G5; when I had finder, I clicked on the Firefox application on the dock. A message opened saying: Close Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.

Installed Firefox 3.6.8, tried update first, then did complete uninstall and fresh install from scratch. Problems, problems...

Can not set Tools-Options, the page is blank with only CANCEL button active. Pages keep loading forever, tab page load indicator never stops. On first start, home is www.google.com, then it reverts to Firefox-Google home and search does not work at all. Will not let me connect to support.mozilla website either. Drives me crazy ! Thanks for help in advance.

A website I use with forums shows everything as bold all of the time when normally they are not bold after I read them.

I have installed a new version of FireFox and when I open a page it is all bolded. I have read a few posts and they have stated to download new fonts. I have tried this and it has not worked. The issue is not present in IE so I would imagine fonts are ok. I tried to download an older version of FireFox and the issue is there as well. I am using Windows 7.

I've tried different browsers, Safari and Internet Explorer. I've tried on a Mac and a PC. The problems seems to only occur on FireFox, whether on a PC or a Mac. The problem also seems to be on the iPhone.

Customers are trying to go directly to a link on my website: www.madeimages.com/Photography and www.madeimages.com/Marketing (These are the only two that I have come across after a small search).

When the page seems as if it's about to load, a pop up appears saying:

You have chosen to open PHOTOGRAPHY which is a: Untyped Binary Data from http://www.madeimages.com Would you like to save this file?

I called Yahoo Small Business, my hosting site and they don't seem to have anything wrong on their end.

I am in Germany and have talked to customers loading the site from military bases locally, and I've asked colleagues in the states to load the site and they are all getting the same problem.

Any idea what's wrong and how to fix it? Is there something on these pages that isn't recognized by FireFox?

I think I asked this question months ago but never got an answer.

Firefox wants to remember my password for YouTube. But it wants to remember it on the Google.com website.

When I do it that way, it ties together Google and YouTube in ways I don't prefer.

I want to keep Google and YouTube as separate as possible.

Therefore I want to find someway to get Firefox to remember my YouTube password on YouTube.com--not Google.com.

How do I do this?

I ask for Firefox to remember it this way because I notice when I look at my current password list that all of them seem to be remembered on the names of their websites (for example: my ebay password is asked by Firefox to be remembered at ebay.com).

Thanks.

How do I get Firefox to go top pf page after loading?

I installed Firefox 3.6.10 recently. The new version does something it never did before and its very annoying to me. ie. When Firefox loads my homepage which is Google, my Google homepage is larger than one screen. It used to bring me to the top of the page (ie first screen) and leave my cursor in the search field so I can begin typing my search immediately. In the newest version, Firefox leaves me at the bottom of the page and forces me to do a page up and a click on the search field to begin typing my search. I think its a bug. Also, it prompts me for my master pw immediately now instead of waiting for a screen which requires a pw (like it used to do) .. also annoying. Can anyone help?

Everytime I go to "Edit, Prefernces, Privacy", then under HISTORY: Firefox will: And here is where I select "remember history" and then click "okay" at the bottom of the page....but it doesn't stay that way! When I go back to check in the "Firefox will:" section, "use custom settings for history" is there....and NOT what I told it to do...which was to "remember history". So, HOW do I get it to remember history like before? This has never happened to me before....so please send me an answer via email so I can get this resolved. Thanks :-) !!!

I went to see if I could select the corresponding plugin, but I didn't have a choice, except to pick the QT plugin. Does Firefox just automatically go by what my default player is? Cuz to tell you the truth, I never use QT, nor have I ever set up QT to be the default player for anything really. I appreciate any and all info you can provide.

How can I make Firefox more low-vision friendly?

I want to use Firefox since it allows me to use Adblock Plus. But I am legally blind; and, despite the zoom features, Firefox is still not as easy for me to use as Internet Explorer. So, this leaves me having to choose between security and usability.

The one thing that I cannot get used to visually is Firefox's address bar display. With all the black and blue text and the fact that it seems more "jumbled" to me than Internet Explorer, I find it very hard to use.

Is there any way I can tweak the way the address bar is displayed (by changing font size, color, content, arrangement, etc.)?

Thanks!

Hi, I need help with viewing special characters as a weird character... if that makes since. I build web pages for a company and for some reason on their server if I type in -> they will see it as â€"> in order for me to fix this error I type in the html code as &ndash ; and it will come up as it should. They are using IE7 to view these errors and I cannot get IE7 to do this no matter what I try. In Firefox I can view these errors by going under View/Character Encoding and selecting Western(ISO-8859-1) is there a way I can modify Firefox to save this as a default setting? I've tried making changes under Tools/Options/Fonts/Advanced and it keeps reverting back to Unicode(UTF-8). I would really like to keep it set up so I don't have to change the encoding on every page I'm currently viewing. Thank you
