I know how to clear my cache so that it doesn't load up with old email addresses, however I would like to know what to shut off so that I have to fill out forms each time. It can remember some delicate information at times and I would like that to stop, not just keep happening as soon as I fill out a new form. Thanks!

The past week, every time I click on anything - an e-mail in gmail, something on a website I want to go to, the arrow to scroll on a page, the Mac colorwheel comes on and it takes forever. I finally got so frustrated I switched back to my old Safari. But this is a new problem, and I didn't do anything to the computer to cause it. My internet connection is fine (cable) as Safari works great. So what's going on? (I have version 3.5.9)

How do I open firefox and go to a bookmark directly? Typing: firefox "/home/user/document.htm#bookmark" places /home/user/document%23bookmark in the path.

Typing: firefox "/home/user/document.htm#bookmark" places file:///home/user/document%23bookmark in the path. Yet the error message says "Firefox can't find the file at /home/user/document#bookmark." So it gets the path right for the error message but wrong for the path. If I go to the path in firefox window and replace the "%23" with the "#" the file loads correctly at the expected bookmark.

When I click on Firefox the first time it says "Foxfire is installing your updates and will start in a few moments…. (with a green bar)" then it says "Software Update Failed (in blue) with an exclamation mark inside a yellow triangle) The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." When I click the ok, Firefox opens up. If I open another Firefox window with the previous one still running, it doesn't give me any of these messages, it just opens normally.

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Smart+keywords I want to know how to remove the smart keywords that this article tells you only how to create.

I have the smart keyword 'ford' set to search the Ford website. I never use it, and when I want to simply Google 'ford escort' and type 'ford escort' into my location bar, it searches ford.com for 'escort' instead, because of that smart keyword. Long story short: I want to remove that smart keyword and all my troubles will be solved.

I am running Firefox 50.1.0. Your educated guess about my Firefox version says 3.5.9, which means you can't read it either.

Flickr and many sites say something like "You seem to be using an unsupported browser. To get the most out of Flickr please upgrade to the latest version of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer." I tried everything online to make Norton firewall let in friendly sites to no avail. I know my OS is old, so is my CPU, and memory's small.
