The first time it happened, I reinstalled and it was fine for a week, then the same thing happened. Now when I try to uninstall and reinstall it's the same problem--no igoogle page, no email, web pages are not showing photos or just look weird, and the blog interface I use won't work at all.

I tried to delete the file folders but the computer wouldn't allow me to do that either. I have Macafee antivirus, not norton

I installed Firefox 6 onto my new Macbook Pro and regardless of what I type into the address bar, it goes to a website for a Mexican presidential candidate, Emilio Gonzalez Marquez.

The address I type in (say www.google.com) remains in the address bar, but it goes to the same page. I click on any link on the website and it remains on this page but with the address for that new page in the address bar.

I tried uninstalling Firefox, downloading a new copy and reinstalling it but I had the same problem. I changed the home page and still nothing.

There appears to be glitches with Yahoo/Firefox Toolbar again -- it does not refresh and I have all bookmarks stored there.

Then after an hour or two of troubleshooting I find that Tools > Add-ons Manager "DOES NOT LOAD"?

I have seen Yahoo Toolbar in the past do this, but usually refresh.

At the beginning of writing this about 4 minutes ago I clicked on Tools > Add-ons Manager and all I see is "LOADING" -- IT IS NOT LOADING.

Can you help or do I go to Crome? ty

When I start typing something on Facebook, or in my email, or a comment on a blog, in Firefox, it will let me type a word or two, and then nothing more. All other functions work fine, it isn't frozen, but there is no response to anything I do with the keyboard. Other internet browsers and other programs work fine. It started with the space bar being just a bit behind the other letters (so I typed a word, pressed space, had to wait for the space to appear before I could type the next word) but now it is everything.

When I open Add-ons from the Tools menu all my toolbars become hidden. The only thing showing at the top is the menu bar. The only way I have found to get the toolbars back is to close Firefox and reopen it. Is this normal?

I tried to use Google+. It told me that my browser was no longer supported. Then I clicked on the Google search that is set as my home page. It tells me that my version of Firefox is no longer protected against threats. So then I went to a web site that tells me my browser name and version. Firefox is reporting that it is version 3.5 instead of 6.0

I seem to be in the beta channel. Which I am finding that for my busy lifestyle, has too many incompatability issues with add ons and extensions. I don't have time to keep finding and waiting for new solutions and upgrades from your developers. I just upgraded to firefox 7 and lost some add ons that I'd rather still have.

1. can I just go back to firefox 6.3.4 or wherever I was

2. should I switch to some "slower" upgrade channel, and where would I find this?

I hope the "question" field explains my question clare enough.

I have a Norwegian Ip, and probably installed the Norwegian version of Firefox. Because of this, the Google search bar and adress filed is automatically set to perform searches on Google.no, Is there any way to make google performe these searches on Google.com

I've tried to set http://www.google.com in about:config > Keyword.URL.

This made the "search bar" execute searches on Google.com, but typing someting in the "adress field" turned out wit errors.
