How do I download update 3.6.23 when it tells me that I do not have systems permission to install it?

Whenever I try to download Security & Stability Update 3.6.23 a popup tells me that I do not have systems permission to install it and that I should contact systems administrator to do so. I am the sole owner and user of this machine. I keep getting notices that I should download this program. I have downloaded Firefox 7.01 okay. This is becoming very frustrating as none of your Firefox Help articles seem to cover this problem.

When I use Firefox (3.6.24) I get a page saying I need the newest version, 8.0. I download the new one, move the file from "Fetched files" and put it on my desk, where I open it. As I, in dialogue field, drag Firefoxsymbol over to Applications map, it says "You've got a more recent object, are you sure you want to replace it?"

Should I ignore that and go on with the installation? And what could be the newer object that's already there?

When I downloaded the latest version of Firefox (8.O) a flowery top banner came with it. This banner obscures the text links making it hard to work with. It not only appears on the Firefox homepage but on everything I choose to look at on the web. I build websites and this banner makes it very difficult to view the things I'm working on and is extremely irritating. How can I get it off the page? I don't want anything there and don't appreciate Firefox's assumption that they can just force it on me. I would appreciate some help on this. I've gone through your help menus and tried to go back to a plain page but nothing seems to work. Thanks for your time and, hopefully, your help.

Ever since I downloaded the most recent version of Firefox for Mac, the normal Apple bar is missing from the top of my desktop, but only when I'm working in Firefox. This means I can't access any Firefox preferences or get to the File tab to print anything. Very frustrating. Can you explain why this has happened and how I might fix it?

Thank you,

I am running Firefox on a MAC with OS X 10.6.8 and when downloading a file the files are now coming in as generic "attachment.ashx" files instead of coming in with their original name and extension. I can change the extension to the original and the file will open but it is a pain to have to rename and change the extension for every download. This just started and I want to know how to get it back to the previous way of downloading. Thanks!

Reset Firefox in safe mode. Clicked 'Help', then "Restart with Add-ons disabled"

After restarting, Checked "Reset all preferences to Firefox default"

When done, found three new Tabs, one asking if I wanted to continue previous session, a second from Firefox, saying "Welcome to Firefox"

And a third with the heading, "Web Developer Installed"

Clicking on Tab took me to: http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/installed/11/ saying "The Web Developer Extension has been successfully installed"

The new website, which also asks for donations, doesn't look related to Firefox. Regardless, NO ONE ASKED MY PERMISSION to install

AM CONCERNED ABOUT UNWANTED EXTENSION AND WHAT ELSE IT MAY DO WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT.

I DO NOT WANT Chris Pendrick's "extension" on my computer, but don't know how to completely delete/uninstall.

Can anyone help?

It's almost like I'm looking at an image of my firefox browser. If I click on tabs in the browser, add new tab or try and edit the url, it appears frozen. I can tell the browser is not frozen because the only thing that does change if I click on tabs is the page title at the very top. Everything else is frozen.

I didn't notice this until FF 7-ish.

Trying to update to 8.0.1 - when the update window pops up to install I hit "install" as I want the update of course. However, once I hit the install button it can be all day and it sill isn't done installing the update, it just thinks about it...... Make sense? What can I do to get this updated and done? Shouldn't be this tough right?
