I have a PC laptop (Vista) and have used Firefox for a long time. Yesterday there was an automatic update. Today, I can't open Firefox: when I click on it nothing happens at all. (I'm currently using IE to contact you.) I have tried restarting the computer, and I looked for Firefox.exe in the processes list, but it isn't there. Nothing happens when I click on Firefox. I'm not sure what else to try.

Updating utomatically when restarting computer, when NOT chosen to update, because of incompability to add ons

Why can't I turn OFF automatically updating the Firefox when I restart? I have NOT updated to the newest version by choice, because of the lack of compatibility with add-ons and features on my pc. But when I restart it ALWAYS automatically updates to the newest version even after choosing NOT to update earlier or last session.

And there are no way to set it back to earlier versions..I tried and lost all my tabs and date in my browser at work, which are less important than at home.

I want the older version back that was compatible and I want to choose when to update not have it forced upon me when restarting the computer.. VERY annoying and inconvenient .. half my programs now does not run, thanks to this newest update. WHY?? HOw can I fix it. How to fix it?

I have various secure sites I use for work. After upgrading to Firefox 6, some of these sites say they do not support version 6, only version 5 or earlier. I need to return to version 5. If I do an uninstall and then re-install, I have a hunch I will be re-installing 6.

Thank You, Rolf

Since I can not get the "submit feedback" button in "...Idea for Firefox" to work, I'm trying this as an alternative way to submit.

The Most Visited tab seems to be beyond the users control. I have some places I visit frequently that don't seem to register or don't seem to last long if they do. It would be nice if users could: 1.) Control how many items this listing contains 2.) Set some of them to be semi-permanent (sort of a subset of the Bookmarks List which now seems stuck at screen right). Since there is already a delete control, it would be easy to manually eliminate things no longer important. 3.) It would be nice to be able to organize (sort, partition, highlight) items in the listing, just as is possible with the traditional bookmarks files.

I hate everything about this new update. I tried not to download it, but it seems to have downloaded by mistake. It automatically comes up with the new message page instead of my e-mail messages. How can I get rid of it until enough people have complained and you get rid of all of these new features I don't want. Otherwise, I'll go to another browser.

I have Avast antivirus. This update and the last one ... Firefox 5 were not compatible to my Avast and your program said I had to disable my antivirus to update. I think NOT! Why don't you release a browser that is compatible to Avast? And, specifically, WHEN will you guys get on the ball and do that? I like Firefox ... but I won't cut off my nose to spite my face fellas ....
