I am taking an online course through Boston University. They provide an online blackboard system called Vista. When I logged in to see whether everything was compatible, they have a browser check feature that looks to make sure various features are enabled or compatible. It reports that it does not recognize the version of Firefox that I'm using (9.0.1) and their list of supported browsers indicates using Firefox 3.6. How would I be able to obtain this version?

I've looked on the support page and tried those methods, but they don't work for me. I've also tried right clicking on the bookmark and selecting "delete" but nothing happens. If I open up something else, like the "show all bookmarks" option for example, afterwards I no longer have the option to "delete" the bookmark when I right click on it. Also, nothing comes up in the "show all bookmarks" menu. I can't click on the star anymore either in the address bar. It worked before but after I tried to delete the bookmarks that way the first time, it stopped working and now the little menu doesn't drop down.

This wouldn't bother me so much except for the fact that I synced my bookmarks bar with the ones from Safari and now I have duplicates on my Firefox one. I think I liked Firefox more before I got the update...

I was browsing today, and noticed that my Bookmarks Sidebar was missing. I got it to reappear, but now when I try to open a bookmarked site, the site will appear in the narrow space once where the bookmarks were. Any idea as to what happened and what I can do to fix it? I have an iMac, running OSX 10.5.8.

While using firefox my browser froze as i ran out of memory. I tried to close some windows while the browser was paused, however it was frozen so i had to force quit. When i re opened firefox all my bookmarks were gone, both in the toolbar and bookmark folder. I tried to restore however it gives the error message "Unable To Process The Backup File". I have tried following the support pages with no luck. I have also tried to downgrade from 15.0.1 to 14.0.1 but this made no difference. Also, i have noticed when i was using google to search for help all hyperlinks are now showing as black instead of blue! This is happening with multiple web pages.

Is there any way to manually restore the bookmark folder or is this impossible? I can't figure out how to fix this.

Current version of OSX i am running is 10.5.8 Current version of Firefox is 14.0.1

Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer any help.

If we update our present software, what level would we need to go to, in order for Firefox to work properly? Thank you.

So after I deleted a bunch of files/applications today (computer was threatening to crash), Firefox started to do a couple weird things. Navigating backward is no longer possible; the back navigation arrow is greyed out. Also, when I start typing a URL, it no longer suggests the rest of it, either in the URL bar itself or in a drop down menu (it used to do both). 16.0.2 is the current version, right? That's the one I kept, I deleted the others. Recently, I got the announcement that Apple isn't supporting my operating system, Mac OS X 10.5.8 anymore, I don't know if that is relevant. How can these things be fixed?

I have been unable to update my firefox for ages. When I click to update, it just shows a never ending update. I am running an extremely old version (5.0.1) because when I try to install something newer, I get a not compatible message. My operating system although old, shows on the mozilla site as still being supported. Don't know what to do. I've tried suggestions written in this forum, but none work.
