The browser I have for Linux is SeaMonkey or some other annoying thing and I wanted FF because it actually has compatible add-ons but I cannot seem to get the browser to actually run on the computer. I click the download button and get the files but once I extract them nothing happens. I extracted them to the desktop, perhaps there is somewhere else in this system that they need to go to make them work?

My Javascript/HTML code works fine on my Ubuntu box with FF 3.6 but the clients have to use FF 3.01 (compatibility problems with other software preclude them from upgrading to a new FF version) and the software is not working.

Without having access to FF 3.01, I can't debug the software.

I've been unable to find FF 3.01 for Ubuntu. Where can I find it?

I installed some extensions (e.g. flagfox) while logged in to my user account. I have admin access on my home network running Ubuntu. How do I make these extensions available to other users on the network? Surely they don't each need to download/install a separate copy?

I looked at the persona's plus offer. I opted out, because it contained too much stuff. Now when I open the browser, I have to remove the Persona Plus Ad before I get to my search page. If I can't remove it, I will become annoyed and have to remove Firefox. I apologize, nonetheless, I lose patience when something is forced upon me. Otherwise, I like the Browser very much. Thanks!

Is there a way to see the details when Firefox is blocking a cookie?

I like to block most third-party cookies, and I rarely run in to problems. When I do, it's not always easy to troubleshoot, because my list of exceptions is so long. Ther… (read more)

I like to block most third-party cookies, and I rarely run in to problems. When I do, it's not always easy to troubleshoot, because my list of exceptions is so long. There must be a way that I can view a list of specific cookies that are being blocked and allowed by Firefox when I am trying to load a specific website?

Why is there a separate menu item for "Page setup" when there is already a tab for it in the "Print..." menu?

I just can't see the point of having the same options in two places! The "Page Setup" tab from the "Print..." menu item has more options, relating to printer features, wh… (read more)

I just can't see the point of having the same options in two places! The "Page Setup" tab from the "Print..." menu item has more options, relating to printer features, whereas the "Page Setup" dialogue box is basic and looks to me to be a little 'shoddy'. I'd have thought it would be a good idea to have the 'better' set of features available, but from it's own menu item, rather than a tab. And no duplicated controls!!
