This has happened twice in the past week. When I create a new folder nested inside two other existing folders, another folder in another branch is renamed to the newly-created folder's name. The folder that is being renamed is inside the Links folder. (I am not expecting an answer. I cannot find another place where I can report an issue with the browser.)

How do I get firefox to work after installing an update (Can I go back to an older version if possible)?

I recently updated from Firefox 3.6.3 to 3.6.8. I skipped previous updates because of similar problem I'm experiencing now however now it is worse. Immediately after installation, messages windows pop up. The FIRST window says: “Firefox has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.”

The SECOND window (with a red circle surround a white ‘X’) says: “firefox.exe – Unable to Locate Component. This application has failed to start because xul.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”

The THIRD window is called the “Mozilla Crash Reporter. We’re Sorry. Firefox has a problem and crashed…” where it gives me the option of submitting a report and restarting (which I have done).

The problem happened during previous attempted updates which is why I tend to avoid Firefox updates until today. However, in the past all I would do is manually power off the computer and restart the computer. Firefox never completed the installation so I was able to use the older version of Firefox.

Now I cannot do that because Firefox is updated to 3.6.8 which refuses to open. How can this problem get fixed? I am not “tech savvy” but loyal to Firefox (and for now I have no access to all my bookmarks).

Thank you.

Suddenly in the last few days, I can no longer view images on a stock photography site where I sell content. I can view the thumbnails of my and others' images, but when I click to enlarge, I get only a white box the size the image would be. I can also no longer view images posted in the forums. I've logged out and back in, cleared cookies, run CCleaner, rebooted, updated Java, and nothing helps. I can view the content if I log on with a different browser so this is a Firefox issue.

Years ago when Netscape was the browser of choice for those who didn't use Internet Explorer, the Netscape bookmarks had a search feature where it would tell you not only if you had saved a particular bookmark but also the folder where you filed it. IIRC, about six years ago Netscape stopped informing the user where the bookmark you were searching for was filed. It seemed odd to me that Netscape dropped this feature, and Firefox doesn;t have it either. The Firefox search feature only tells you if you have the bookmark. Right now I can't tell where I filed a bookmark and it is frustrating me trying to locate where I filed it.

My question: is there a Firefox add-on that will tell me where the bookmark has been filed?

Certain websites don't load when I go to them. They just stay white and say that they're loading. They stay like that for hours, as I've left tabs open. This happens on Nexopia.com and Omegle.com. This doesn't happen on IE, but I prefer Firefox.

This is really a minor issue, and I think it might just end up being a new feature that needs to be added to the next version of Firefox. But my problem is, oftentimes, I'm browsing my history library looking for sites that I looked for maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I scroll down quite a ways, eventually find what I'm looking for, and then click on the site to open it. The problem I have, which is really merely an annoyance, is that when I click on one page, my library immediately exits out of whatever time frame I'm currently in and sets the time frame to "Today" and highlights the most recent site I've visited, which of course, is the one I just clicked on. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm browsing my history, there are usually 3 or 4 or more sites that I want to re-visit, usually all from around the same time frame. It becomes very tiresome to have to re-click on the correct month or week, and scroll, scroll, scroll, once again, each time I want to re-visit a site, because every time I click on a site it re-sends me to "Today." I wish there was someway to change my history settings so that it wouldn't do this and that, regardless of whatever websites I decide to visit, my history library always stays in the place where I last left it. I hope someone is able to understand what I'm trying to say. Thanks for any help you can provide and don't hesitate to ask for clarification!
