Mozilla says "Your system doesn't meet the requirements to run Firefox" but when I check the requirements, my system meets all.

I have tried twice to upgrade my firefox to the most current (as of 7/18/10). When I did that I was unable to get anywhere on the internet. The message said the proxy settings from my server would not allow it and to make changes. I am using a home computer with Windows 2000. It hooks straight up to the DSL, there is no Server in my house. I am not too computer savvy but tried using the tools info but that just assumes I already know about proxies, servers, etc. I was able to delete the new version and load an older one stored on my computer and have no problems with getting on the net. What is the fix that I can do? What steps do I take. I am not going to hire a guy to do what should be a simple task.

Latest FF and XP Pro. 2.4 Ghz Celeron, 1 gig RAM. FF will work for a while, then it will stop loading pages and say "Stopped" in the lower left corner of screen. Sometimes I can refresh and the page will load, but 95 out of 100 times I can keep refreshing and it will say "Stopped". Or, the page will partially load and then quit and say "Stopped". I have disabled IPv6 and DNS Prefetching and it is still doing it. IE is doing about the same thing. VERY frustrated. My last PC started doing this and I finally upgraded to a newer one and it was fine for a couple months, but started doing the same recently. Arghhh ... Thanks!

Why does Firefox 3.6.12 truncate attachment file names containing blank spaces (Windows)?

Whenever someone sends me an attachment and I save it, Firefox truncates the file name if the file name contains blank spaces. I am running 3.6.12 under Windows 2000 SP4 right now. But this behavior has persisted for a long time, with earlier versions of Firefox and under Windows XP. Unfortunately, I cannot control the names of attachments people send me. As an example, if someone sends me a file named "file name.doc" (without quotes, of course), Firefox either displays it (via Micro$oft Word) or saves it as "file.doc". If I receive "filename.doc", that's how it gets saved.

My current version of Firefox has become corrupt. When I try to download a new version with Internet Explorer or my current version of firefox it goes to 53% unpacked and then it comes up with file corrupt. I have had the same issue before and have solved it by using a linux CD to download a windows version and it unpacks and installs great. I now cannot find a place where I can specify which version I want and it insists on using the download for Linux which is useless for me.

The top left of previous Firefox versions had the left arrow key to go back to the previous web page and a button that would list all the previous web pages so that I could select, say, the 5th previous page. I can't find this button on Firefox 4. Is there a way to do this?

I need to set up the browser for people who don't know anything about computers other then you click this and things happen. I have the browsers set to automatically update, and every time it does, I get a help desk call to their station with "The browser just did something strange."

Get tired of that, I only want to be bothered with real help calls you know.
