Recently there was an update to forecastfox. For how I use it, it was a significant downgrade. I found and re-installed the previous (0.9.10) version. Now everytime I start up Firefox, I get the update box asking me to install the unwanted update. I want to be able to skip this update permanently (or at least until the app is improved).

When I want to log into a site as soon as I put the cursor into the box, I get a list every every name I've ever typed into that box. I'm not an accurate typist, so every misspelling I've ever made pops up. It's annoying. How do I get rid of them?

I wanted to upgrade from Firefox 3 to Firefox 4. But, after I completed the download and then tried to open the Firefox application, I received a pop-up message saying, "You cannot open the application "Firefox" because it is not supported on this architecture." Is it possible that I may have inadvertantly downloaded Firefox 5? I do not think that my system will support Firefox 5. I am not a techie, so I very much appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

After logging in on Verizon, I had clicked through a number of links, eventually landing on a page where I noticed my toolbar was no longer displayed. When I checked my settings, they were still checked to display the toolbars. If I quit and relaunch Firefox, everything is the way it should be again. Something about Verizon? Never saw this behavior before. Can't provide URL, due to https address.

I'm a frustrated newbie trying to download FF 8.0 on my Mac. I keep getting an error message saying an unknown error occurred and to save to a disk. Does anyone have a quick fix? Thanks!

It also tells me that a download file could not be opened. It goes through all the download steps and I get the message at the very end.

When I first start Firefox, the Google start page loads correctly, but has a warning banner beneath the entry box telling me that I do not have the latest version of Firefox. When I attempt to upgrade I get the message that I have the latest version. When I check the "About Firefox" dropdown I also see that I have the latest version. How do I get rid of the incorrect warning message? Steve Caldwell

I just noticed this morning that the lower tool bar, including weatherfox, Hebrew Calendar, and several other add-ons, has completely disappeared. Perhaps it's a matter of having inadvertently clicked on something one day when not paying attention. When I checked under Firefox preferences a little while ago, I went to <manage add-ons> and saw all installed add-ons were still installed. I cannot find a way to restore the lower tool bar displaying them.

After doing a back-up, I opened Time Machine to see whether an earlier Firefox homepage included the lower bar. I don't know whether I did not go back far enough or whether Firefox is somehow opening to a new, unintended default without that lower bar, no matter how far back I go.

Meanwhile, in the process of writing this, I returned to Firefox Preferences and now the general preferences dialogue box is completely screwed up, as though the size of the contents of that dialogue box had grown, in both dimensions, so it no longer fits within the box and parts of it cannot be accessed. It is truncated, in other words, both at the right side and along the bottom. I can no longer even access the add-ons section. The last thing visible at the bottom of that box is the very top part of the line of text that appears to read: "Choose preferences for your add-ons." It's as though someone had come along with an Exacto and sheared away the bottom part of that line of text. And then there's the at the lower left corner. Along the right side of the box, under "Home Page," there are three buttons: <Use Current Pages>, <Use Bookmark>, and <Restore to Defau>, which is the point at which the text ends.

What the heck is going on? Now it's not only a matter of restoring the lower bar on my Firefox page, with add-ons displayed, but apparently I need to figure out how to resize the general preferences dialogue box, as well. I just checked: The other preferences dialogue boxes appear to fit correctly.

I use a Mac PowerBook G4 with Firefox version 3.6.13.
