I am presently using Firefox version 3.6.24 on my PPC mac using system 10.4.11. I have been using Firefox for many years with no problems. Yesterday I received and alert on my screen that there was a new update of Firefox available to install. I clicked OK and the update started. When it finished I checked and it was the same version, 3.6.24, which I was using and apparently nothing had changed until I went to my eBay classified site. Once on my site I signed in and went to the manage my items page. The page looked different because normally it displays all items I have for sale and at the top of the list of sale items are three items to check and look at My Ads, which I am looking at, My Profile and My Alerts. When you click on one of these you are normally taken to another page. When I went there after the apparent installation of the updated version of Firefox the page showed My Ads in one column, My Profile in another column and a third column for my alerts all on one page. This is not normal. I signed out and went page to my home page which is http://www.rr.com/. It was now different. Parts of the site were now missing, the sections with the weather, news and notices. I thought it might be the site and then I launched Safari and went to the same page and it was normal. This morning when I launched Firefox it displayed my home page as screwed up as yesterday. Safari showed it as it should look. I then launched SeaMonkey and it showed the page as it should look. I really like Firefox and would like to get it working again like it should. Would appreciate any suggestions. My email address is jsimmons15@cfl.rr.com

Following a series of crashes when on hotmail and gmail, I received a message to download Firefox Setup 8.0, which I completed yesterday. This resolved my email issues. However, I have now tried to access my work e-library, but despite being on the right site with all the correct log-ins, when I click to go on to the e-library (which should give me direct entry) I end up being diverted to the proxy server of my university library, which (naturally) does not give me access to my work library. I do use Zotero, if that helps provide an answer to my problem. Any ideas how I can resolve this?

Can I update to earlier than the latest (currently 8) version of Firefox? I need that because my test frameword has problems starting Firefox version 8 and there were no such problems up until version 7.

I recently updated from Firefox 7 to Firefox 8. Until version 7 the test framework I use, based on Selenium, was working normally with the browser. Since I updated to version 8 - the framework can't open any browser session. So I had to downgrade to older version to be able to run my tests. But the only older version than 8 was 3.6 - really stable but very, very old one.

So I need to choose to work with any version between 3.6 and 8, excluding 8 for now.

How can this happen from the Firefox site?

On Yahoo Mail page, all colour is missing; there are boxes and grid lines marking stubs on leftside; flagging impossible On Compose page, Rich Text Options missing Web pages- bbc.co. uk - the ad above news missing; background colour on boxes missing. There's no problem with photos; YouTube clips are fine.

All these features are fine in Internet Explorer on the same desktop -Dell Optiplex 745, Windows XP Prof 32-bit.

I got this message- for a few days "Ëxc in ev handl: TypeError: this oRoor.enable is not a function"

The message stopped after I removed all McAfee aps.

I hope someone can help. I prefer to use FF, but cannot use it now. Thank you.

So basically the up and down key are acting as "home" and "end".

If I click on the page I can get them to work somewhat normally, although there is a cursor (like for imputing text) and it goes line by line when I press up and down (instead of scrolling) very annoying and I'll be switching to Chrome for good unless this is resolved for me.

I've had this issue for a few weeks now. I had hoped perhaps once Windows 7 updated I would regain the use of tabs but it hasn't. When I try to open up a new tab in Firefox, nothing happens. Even if I right click and click "New Tab", nothing happens. I've tried restarting my computer, updating Windows, updating Firefox, restarting Firefox, re-installing Firefox and nothing has worked. I have a suspicion that something simply isn't compatible with Windows 7. Firefox still works fine on my other computers - one has Vista, the other XP.
