Re my Acer XP: How do I know if I've installed Firefox 4? I've gone through the motions three times and have not been told I was successful. When I look at "About Firefox" I'm told I still have version 3.6. What gives

That's pretty much it. If you need more information I'll need some guidance from you, such as specific questions. Thanks.

Version 3.6.17 Last night I noticed that a particular bookmark section I use quite a lot was missing so I tried restoring the bookmarks from a day old backup that Firefox had automatically made for me. I got the error "Unable to process the backup file." So I tried each of the 4 other backup files listed which produced the same error. The manual backup I have is a couple months old so I would prefer to restore a recent backup. Is there a way to make any of these json backup files work? Today I reinstalled FF with the same result. If I can not restore one of these files then is there a way to import only the part of the saved exported bookmarks I need instead of importing all of the old bookmark file? thanks Jerry

I am trying to view fabric.com. I initially viewed the site fine, then I connected to a wifi network with bad service and none of the photos showed up on that site and others. Now whenever I view the site, the pictures don't come up. I tried clearing cookies and restarting. All other sites work fine and the fabric.com site works on other computers.

Hi,

I thought I had done this before, but now I cannot figure out if it works or not, as I don't see anywhere to change it. Sometimes I'll subscribe to a group or something, and the emails they send seem to overwhelm the inbox. If this is a Firefox feature, I need to figure out how to do it (again?). If not, I may just not subscribe to any more boards!

In other words, check the address. If the address has "@xxx.com" in it, put in in THIS folder. I'm not sure if this is a Firefox thinh, or if I need to use the ISP!

Thanks.

I can allow pop-ups from certain sites in Tools/Settings, why then can I not also block pop-ups from certain sites since Firefox doesn't always manage to block them?

Whenever I visit, for instance, merriam-webster.com an ad from groupon invariably pops up in a new window. OK, so Firefox does not manage to block it although I have this option checked in Tools/Settings/Content. But why can I not enter the URL of the groupon ad and manually block it? I can allow pop-ups from sites of my choice in Tools/Settings/Content, I think I should also be able to block sites?

I just got a droid bionic & I'm trying to get Zumocast to work so I can pull stuff off my laptop from 'the cloud' onto the phone. I use a usb modem from Verizon w/ the VZAccess Mgr. The Zumocast help page only gives instructions for Internet Explorer & Safari, I'd just as soon stick with FF, although I use Google Chrome occasionally. I'm computer challenged, so any help explained in layman's terms would be greatly appreciated!

How to restore all extensions after FF8.0 prevented them all?

After I updated to FF8.0 a few days ago, I noticed that the Back and Forward buttons did nothing... and then realised that opening a new URL in the same tab failed to leave any trace of the previous URL. Having had bad experiences with all the major FF upgrades from 4.0 onwards, I decided to reinstall 3.6.17 which had been working perfectly. Back/Forward were fine then, BUT (1) none of my add-on extensions worked at all, even though they were shown as enabled. (2) when I tried to access the options for any extension, the Add-on window locked up completely. (3) when I updated and tried to install extensions, the operation failed with a "203 error".

I tried reinstalling FF a couple of times without improving things and then did a Windows 7 Restore to the state before the FF8.0 upgrade. Still no joy!

I have checked my McAfee Security Centre and can find no problem there. What can I do to restore the correct operation without losing passwords, bookmarks, or plugins? I can accept losing all the current extensions as I can get them back once FF allows me to download and install them.

NOTE: ALL troubleshooting Information about extensions and print-related preferences deleted from box below - too big!
