When I was asked to upgrade Firefox it did say it was not presently compatible with Google Tool Bar. I have lost most of my buttons for Google now. How long will it be before this compatibility issue is resolved? Can I go backwards to the previous version?

When I go to the FAFSA page to look up my financial aid it tells me I have an Incompatible Browser Has Been Detected. Ive used Firefox before and have no problem going to that site. I have Firefox on my laptop just as well as my desktop. I dont want to use IE but I hate for another site to give me that same message. It says I need to use FF 3.5x or 3.6x

I've just upgraded Firefox from 4.0.1 to 5. Now when I start Firefox, the following error message appears:

JavaScript Application TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined

When I click the OK button, Firefox loads. It looks normal, and seems to behave normally. I have Java Version 6 Update 26 installed (Windows XP), which is the latest version.

Seems to be a Firefox problem, as I didn't have it before with the same version of Java installed. Is there a Firefox setting that needs to be changed, or is it maybe a Firefox bug?

V 3.6.17 has a dropdown menu to the right of the back and forward button called "recent pages" BRING IT BACK!!!!

When I go to a page that auto redirects me to another page,, the only way to get back to the page I was on before hand is to be able to choose to go back more than one page at a time. You took that away in the newer versions.. If I was able to go back to that older version I would just for that feature.

I notice how my App Tabs load all at once, like regular tabs do. This for me is bad, because my internet isn't that fast, and sometimes can go even slower. So when I have many sites loading at once, it slows everything down, or even makes them fail to load. So my question is: is there a way to make these tabs load one by one, instead of all at once?

I wish to transfer the bookmarks from my old Firefox 3.6/4.0 to my new Firefox 5.0, they are on two separate hdd in my computer. I cannot access my old installation as the OS (xp) is not working, so maybe I can copy the actual bookmark files, if only I could locate them. no profile or backup was ever made in the old Firefox so the help files appear to be useless to me as they only tell you how to us if you have a backup or profile

While I generally use Firefox, one of the features I find useful in Internet Explorer 8 is that "alt text" appears as a small popup on mouse-over. I've searched Firefox and Firefox Help to see if there was a feature that could be enabled for this, but have not found any references at all to alt-text. Can Firefox show "alt text"? If not, is there an add-on? If not, please submit this as a suggested feature to add in future releases.
