I can't set my homepage, couldn't do it in v10, either by tools/options (on my desired website and clicking use current page or dragging the icon over to the little house as directed. My homepage program won't work with v10 so I uninstalled and installed v3.6.26. I can't set my home page with it either, even though I click current page and hover over the house. the house will show my selected page, but when I close and reopen, it keeps going back to search, the default.

I have an iMac and I am running 10.4.6 I am running Firefox 3.6.26

My problem is, when I go to shut down my computer, Firefox will not quite, so I have to force Firefox to quit. It will not quit when I click on quit.


Before this problem started, Firefox would quit when I clicked on Shut down.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem.

Can I install Firefox in a manner that it will never check for an upgrade for any user?

In a VDI environment of about 500 VMs I would like to turn off the check for upgrades for all the VMs' users. We can't upgrade Firefox until we have made sure that the new version works with specific tools. The VMs are linked clones that are being refreshed to their pre-login state after users log off. This causes the upgrade popup to come up every time users log on. Users do not have permission to upgrade, so this is a nuisance that I would like to eliminate for them.

I found that I can use about:config to turn off the upgrade check on the image from which all VMs are created, but this does not turn it off for all the users, just for the user with which the image is maintained. Is there a central setting that allows me to do this? Or would this require a change to all users' profile? And if the latter, what change would I have to make to their profile?

I tried to move bookmarks by creating a Sync profile but it gave me the message "the add-on was removed by its author" and I don't know what that means. Within the forum I found a message indicating I can do this by first updating to Firefox 9 or something, but my current OS is stuck with the Firefox 3.6.26 version and won't upgrade beyond that until I upgrade my OS on my newer computer. So how can I save and move bookmarks to my new computer, a Mac with 10.6?

I am a hold-out still running 3.6.26 Firefox is the only browser I use. I'll be here forever. You know I get messages about 10.0.1 and that I'm using an old version. I would like to be convinced through opinion that I should upgrade. I am totally happy with the way things are now with 3.6.26. I don't want Google Chrome or a browser that looks like it. I'm willing, but like opinions.

This computer runs Mac OS 10.4.11 on a Power PC chip. I keep getting a small window at the top of the screen that says: "Some plugins used by this page are out of date". The problem is that this old computer will not accept any of the new plugins proposed (Flash, QuickTime, Java, etc.). How can I stop the message from popping up?
