I have a new MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.3. Every time I download Firefox and try to open it, I get an error message saying, "A copy of Firefox is already open." And it's not.

This happened

Just once or twice

I bought my new computer.

I click "Clear Recent History," check all the boxes, select "Everything" from the drop down menu, and click "Clear Now" and my Firefox will delete my cookies, but it will not delete my browsing history. My browsing history stays. I click the history drop down menu on the top and it still has things I browsed just moments ago.

I am often away from my computer for weeks at a time, digging at archaeology sites, before I return to clean, sort, and catalog my finds. And every time I launch my browser of choice, I have to sit through yet another Firefox update.

Sometime's it's a major update, like Firefox 3.6 for instance, but more often than not—too often—it's some stupid little tertiary update that requires Firefox to download, quit, root around on the hard drive, and restart with a whole damn brand-new binary. Why?!

Just once I'd like to sit down, boot up, and get to work instead of wading through this slow, irritating process that the Mozilla developers subject me to.

I've become envious of my friends who run Safari, Apple's home-grown browser, which is updated less frequently. If they want more frequent updates, they download and install WebKit, but can otherwise continue on day after day without interruption in Safari.

I like this model, as it lets busy people like me get more work done, so I am thinking of purchasing a Mac. Really, anything to get me away from the time-wasting wreck of a browser that Firefox has become is a good idea.

The Firefox model crashes and burns its users. Literally, too, when you think about all of its other addling bugs and design flaws that crash the browser and burn countless CPU cycles.

So until I can see the web in a whole new way with Safari on a new Mac, it'll be another day, another Firefox update.

Thanks a lot for nothing, Mozilla.

This happened

Not sure how often

I installed Firefox.

Safe Mode did not solve my problem with Amazon not loading pictures.

I tried clicking on Amazon's site identification icon>Then More Info button>Then Media tab. I noticed that images labeled "embedded" showed the same broken image signal I get when I view Amazon's web page. Those labeled "Image" showed a small picture; not a broken one.
