This company's online system has only been tested with IE. I've hit a glitch trying to log off. When I log off, it takes me to the log in screen, but I'm not logged off and can't log back in. I'm going to try it using IE and see if the problem disappears. If it does, can I use IE just for this company and use FF for everything else?

I change my primary email address for my account with an online retailer but when I tried to login using my new email address it would not let me in. I sent a message to their tech support and after repeated attempts I gave up. Then I changed my email address for my ebay account and the same issue even though my email address is not my login name. I tried to login to ebay using IE and no problem. I went back and tried the online retailer site and it also works with IE.

Hi,

The Advertising Banner when you open an E-mail used too be on the right side of the screen. I was used to this. Now for some reason the Banner is at the bottom and it drives me crazy. It is really distracting when I am trying to read my mail. How can I change this back to the way it was before?

Thank you, Amy

Whenever I try to download Security & Stability Update 3.6.23 a popup tells me that I do not have systems permission to install it and that I should contact systems administrator to do so. I am the sole owner and user of this machine. I keep getting notices that I should download this program. I have downloaded Firefox 7.01 okay. This is becoming very frustrating as none of your Firefox Help articles seem to cover this problem.

I've been trying to connect to a FTP server using WinSCP, but the server just won't allow it, despite me having the right login informations and all.

I tryed it on Firefox, and I could connect and see the files just fine. The problem is, Firefox doesn't do uploads and file edits.

My guess is that the problem comes from me selecting the wrong port to connect with on WinSCP.

To test my theory, I wanted to check which port Firefox was using to connect to the server. But I searched in every menu option (I think) but didn't find the info I wanted.

Any ideas on how to find it ?
