Made the mistake of upgrading to the latest Firefox OS 10.5 can use without having the Intel chip. My plugins are as upgraded as they will go, but apparently Firefox doesn't recognize that and the nag is IRRITATING!

Here's the problem with latest Firefoxes (15-17) as well as Palemoon:

Create three folders on your desktop - name them A, B and C. Now open up Firefox. Go to webpages that have multiple images to download. Click open the images from the various webpages while holding down the Ctrl key.. You will now have multiple tabs of the various images. Now open each tab with an image, right click the image, save as a random name and make the download designation folder A. Do this for all tab images.

Now go back to the first tab image, right click the image, save as a random name and make the download designation folder B. Continue doing this for remaining tab images. As soon as you attempt to download an image from a different webpage, Firefox will change the download designation to folder A.

Typically when you set a download designation in a browser, the designation does not change unless you manually change it. Firefox will keep changing the download folder for each new webpage with images.

Now do the same as the last paragraph but save the images to folder C. As soon as you get to an image from different webpage, Firefox will (I do not see why it is doing it) change the download folder to either A or B, but not C.

I have three browsers including Firefox 3.6.28. I am running a Mac Power Book G4 with a OS X 10.5.8

For security purposes, I have installed a "text seal" and "color" on Yahoo Mail. For my other two browsers the text seal and color remain permanent when I quit each but for Firefox, when I delete history or just "quit," the next time I try Yahoo Mail both the text seal and color have not been saved.

Of course, I do not have to use Yahoo on Firefox but I would like to; always have.

I have two Mac G4 desktop computers and have always had autoscrolling Firefox. Now the feature is no longer working. I don't recall updating Firefox recently, but can't go beyond my current version, 3.6.28 because the machines are not Intel.

The autoscroll is very useful. I have tried checking the Preferences..Autoscrolling is checked. I have tried restarting. No luck. I cannot start in Safe Mode as there is no option for it.

If there is some fix for this, it's not apparent on the Firefox Help Website. So any suggestion that would restore this feature will be very much appreciated. It doesn't seem to be a plug in, or and add on. My feeling is there may be some resetting procedure necessary...but I have no idea how to do that. Again, help to restore Autoscrolling very much appreciated. It worked for years...all I had to do was press the middle mouse button. It could go slow and faster. Now what happens when I press the middle button is that I get my dashboard apps. Hmm.

Thanks!

I have an Intel-based Mac Mini that really works well despite it's antiquity, but I obviously need to upgrade the OS. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me whether Firefox will be dropping support for Mac 10.6 soon? I'll spend the $25 for the Snow Leopard install disk, but if it's soon to be unsupported, I guess I'd better save the dough and put the money toward a "newer" used Mac. Hate being cheap, but finances are tight. MANY thanks for any help you might offer!

All of a sudden a few days ago, instead of a blank page when I open a new tab, Foxfire has started displaying a whole thing under the heading "You've opened a new tab." I'm quite aware that I opened a new tab. I did it on purpose and I do it all the time. There is a "Don't show this page again" box to check but I've already checked it numerous times and it changes nothing. Why did this message start displaying and, more importantly, how can I get it to stop????
