When I installed FF 3.6.22, the FF icon down in the lower left tray disappeared, (I did not notice this), and one on the desktop appeared. I hate icons on the desktop, so I deleted the shortcut, and then noticed the icon was gone from the left side of the system tray,next to the start oblong. How do I get the icon/shortcut for FF 3.6.22 back to the right place?

And no, I do not want to switch to v6.

How do I get Firefox to DISPLAY a font as clear and clean as Word? I choose different fonts in Firefox and sizes and nothing really happens.

I am building a web page. When I was editing the page and clicked on browser review, the music I was playing in the background played in ff 3.6.22 and in IE 7. When I uploaded the page to the web for testing, the background music played in IE7 but not ff 3.6.22.

The url for the test page is testpage http://dj-group.org/efm/saints.html

In the process of trying to figure this out, I updated my plugins, all but one successfully. Java would not install because an error message said there was a syntax error. (Since I ran the installer from the Firefox download screen and not through the command line, I tried to contact Java only to find out that the only way I can get help is to pay $1/minute. This is ridiculous.)

The test page still works in IE but not ff

Please help

Before you can play Yahoo games, you must type in a 4 letter/number code. Suddenly (a few days ago) only about 1/3 of the right-hand side of the screen, where the code appears, is visible and I can't enlarge the screen to see it. So I'm unable to log on to Yahoo games. I haven't done anything different that I'm aware of. Is anyone else having this problem?

I don't know how I got into this, but as I go to a website I want to visit, there's this website name FREEZE.COM always pop up onto the same page that I am viewing, I have to hit BACK to view the page I need to see, then FREEZE.COM keeps coming back as if it's hitting the BACK button on its own. Sometimes it goes crazy as if it were to fight with me for the computer, making me unable to surf the internet or check email or doing anything.

I have a Mac G5 with OS 11.4.11. In order for me to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox I would have to install a new system. If I install a new system I have to install all new programs. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, GoLive and other CS programs, plus PowerPoint, QuarkXpress , and many others. I can't afford to upgrade. I really like Firefox but what am I suppose to do?

On my older Dell tower, I have FF3.6.22, WinXp(fully updated), 2.4Ghz but the RD-RAM is limited to only 256M (because it is rare and very expensive). While I would love to have your latest features, the tradeoff for resources is making me wait for a more efficient version. So which one/and when might that be?
