How do I stop / eliminate the 4.0 upgrade reminder that "Urgently" appears at each launch of Firefox Home Page or give up and change Home site?

For us tech luddites-- each launch of Firefox reminds: "Urgent" the old browser is no longer virus protected and urges an upgrade to 4.0--now.

I have already checked 4.0 upgrade resource requirements to confirm that 4.0 is not compatible or barely functional on older platforms.

Without changing your Home Page or buying a new system-- can this upgrade message be stopped/eliminated/purged?

I have had firefox for a couple months now, and have never had a problem before. However, last night, my laptop overheated and when I started it once it cooled down, it did a system restore to an earlier date (which it didn't specify). Now when I try to open firefox it just crashes instantly. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, and it still does the same thing. Is there anything I can do? I can still use IE (oh great) and Google Chrome (better at least...) just fine, but firefox seems not to like me any more at all... Am I stuck with these other, inferior browsers forever or is there a fix? Please help me!

I have a website in which i displays a warning message if the user is using IE6, IE7 or IE8 and a link to upgrade the old and dead browser to new one.

And i have given the upgrade link to mozilla.com. But when i take the mozilla website in IE7 there is no download button visible. Please check that.

What ever is visible or not at least DOWNLOAD button should be made visible to IE users. Please allow them to upgrade from dead browser.

It claims I have no connection or isn't allowed through my firewall. But I have full connection (Explorer works!) and I've changed my control panel settings to allow it... So why won't it really do anything?!

It loads the home google page but it won't load any other page. My laptop is fully connected to the internet and I've changed the settings to allow it through my firewall. Also, I know it has nothing to do with the individual websites or internet connection because internet explorer works fine. So how do I fix this? I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the firefox program with no luck.

I use Salesforce for tracking leads and accounts. There is a reminder page that is now missing vertical and horizontal scroll bars and buttons. These help me know who I have to contact, who has been contacted and can therefore be removed from the list. I can't scroll down nor dismiss completed items.

I'm reviewing a report from a forensic examination of a hard drive from a Windows machine. In that report are Firefox 3.x cache files where the Windows modified date is more recent than both the Windows created date and the Windows accessed date, with the latter two dates the same. For instance, the modified date might be March 23, 2011 at 10:30 am, and the created and accessed dates might be March 17 at 9:50 pm. What actions, by Firefox, a user, or some other program (other than a date-modification tool) would cause this state of affairs? I'm generally familiar with these dates and under what conditions they change, but have found no doc explaining this particular situation...

For a few weeks now I've been getting popups on Firefox randomly and if I let them load they are ads (even though I have ADP running). I've been annoyed and clicked them off. Then yesterday I got a warning (in red, bottom right corner) from my antivirus software stating that I have a threat of a trojan, that the connection has been terminated and quarantined and no other info on what to do. I opened up IE and have no problem on any site. On Firefox, every site gets the same antivirus warning in red.

On our site is an application to make a custom postcard. This is partly made with Flex. In IE no problems but in FF the inputfields do not support the ALT+GR keys of foreign keyboards. In the early days this could be caused by using wmode but we don't. Seems Flash and FF toegther create a bug. Is there a fix for this?

My husband has been using a reliable medical site for years...suddenly the message popped up "untrusted site." We contacted the site--they connected us to their tech support--he tried everything with us over the phone (cleaning cookies, downloading latest version of firefox) but the only way to solve it was to give firefox the go-ahead to ignore their warning. We then got the site. Today, the same message popped up on another site he uses regularly. Any ideas why this should suddenly happen on reliable sites used successfully for years?
