Hello, we develop an application compatible with Firefox (version 3.6.3). How can we be sure that our application will work with later versions like 3.6.4 etc... until 3.6.x ? What is the Firefox policy about versions (is it only for bugs).

Best regards

Firefox works fine until sometimes when I try to click to a link, or something else, then the tabs area fills in with a whole bunch of 'untitled' tabs that go whizzing across the tabs area. If I close Firefox, it just opens again with the tabs still running. I have to totally quit out of Firefox, then re-open before it will stop.

Since my most recent update I am constantly getting an "indexing" pop-up/status window that says firefox is reindexing my history. Every 30-60 seconds. It's very annoying, and never happened before. How can I get it to stop?

The window says "Indexing Firefox History" and stays up for about 3 seconds, then closes. It's on a MacBook Pro, 8GB memory, 500GB SSD, latest patches up and running. I d… (read more)

The window says "Indexing Firefox History" and stays up for about 3 seconds, then closes.

It's on a MacBook Pro, 8GB memory, 500GB SSD, latest patches up and running.

I don't doubt that this has been going on all the time with the various versions, but this version seems to have enabled the status window popup.

Bookmark library: each use causes FF to freeze for up to 90 seconds and sometimes causes FF to crash.

I've tried disabling all add-ons, plug-ins etc but to no avail. Each time I select 'organize bookmarks' and type in the 'search bookmark' dialog the whole of FF freezes for a min. of 30 secs further searches have the same effect and frequently I have to ctrl/alt/del to bring up the task manager to shut FF down.

The headlines on websites (e.g. BBC News) are in a brown colour and not the usual blue

Normally, on (for example) the BBC News home page, the headlines are in blue and, when you click on them, the underline is in blue. This is the case with Firefox on my portable and with Explorer on my desktop.

However, with Firefox on my desktop, this page has the headlines in a very unbecoming brown (although they still underline in blue, when the cursor goes over them).

How can I restore this website (and all others) to the beautiful complexions chosen by the management gurus and their PR people?

I have Win XP on a Dell 9100. I had FF 3.6.10 & tried many times to upgrade to 3.6.11 --- all unsuccessful. The next day, I saw 3.6.12 downloading. I seem to now have 3.6.12 . I don't know about 3.6.11 . How can I check on this?

I have had Mozilla Firefox for years. My computer is a Dell 9100 , and I use Windows XP. I have upgraded to each version of Firefox that was offered to me. Each upgrade was quick and easily done--up to, and including, Firefox 3.6.10 . I tried many times to upgrade to Firefox 3.6.11 , each time with no success. I have something like 21 copies of the downloaded Firefox 3.6.11 package. The next day, I resumed by quest to download & install 3.6.11 and saw, on my monitor, the 3.6.12 version of Firefox downloading. I don't recall how this happened. I know that I was only trying to download and install version 3.6.11 . Now, I seem to have, by looking at "About Mozilla Firefox" under "Help", Firefox 3.6.12 .

Q1. Is there a way I can check to see whether I have a valid download of 3.6.11 and/or 3.6.12 in my Firefox setup?

Q2. How can I know that all is OK, Firefox-wise? The answer to this question probably can help me a lot, in the future.

Q3. Can I delete all, or perhaps all but one, of those 3.6.11 downloads?

Q4. Any idea on why my difficulties occurred?

Q5. How might I avoid these difficulties in the future?

Thank you for your help.

I like Mozilla. BUT I do NOT like to be offered two browsers for my macbook. WHY am I offered CAMINO and FIREFOX? Does not make sense. Because CAMINO is more adhered to the MAC environ, I suggest you eliminate the other and just rename CAMINO as the version of FIREFOX for Macs! Simple, more economic for you. Because now if I pick CAMINO I am picking a not very well known browser, and some webpages even do not recognize it (like the www.uned.es)
