So my XP computer's power supply died a few weeks ago so I got a new computer. Just replaced the powersupply in the old PC to get my old files. I tried to back up my Firefox profile from my old computer to the new Windows 7 computer, which I've had running Firefox for about a week. When I loaded my backed up profile and restarted Firefox, it seems to have reverted to the style of the old Firefox, or at least the current version that was running on my XP computer. How can I keep my old profile, with the new look of Firefox that I've grown to love over the past week??

I have had firefox for over a year and I recently installed it on my aunts computer. When I did in the upper left hand corner there was an orange box that said firefox on it. I recently re-installed it on to my computer and it is still the same as I had before. (Just the firefox symbol) How do I get the most recent version? It does say that I have the 6.2 or whatever the most recent is. Thank you in advance for the timely response to my question.

Firefox is crashing as soon as I attempt to open it. I have tried the safe mode with same results. I had a couple previous crashes that I was able to recover from after doing an update a couple days ago. Yesterday I downloaded an update to Office 2007, update to my NIVIDA card, downloaded EA play4free of Battlefield. While playing the game it closed by itself. Ididn't realize until later that it was Firefox that had crashed as there was no error msg window. The last crash report is: Crash ID: bp-de5276e6-527d-4938-8d09-d65252111110

I am installing Firefox on my desktop. When I try to import my bookmarks from windows XP Internet Explorer 7 I get a message that say Firefox is no longer working. I have limited computer experience so I really don't know how to approach this problem. I tried the help page suggestions, i.e, restart with add-ons disabled with no success. Please help a senior citizen! I used Foxfire successfully on another machine. Thanks Jim
