Hello,

I have version 30.0 for linux mint 1.0, and I do not find if this the latest one.

I have message into the header of mozzilla support and in the header of gmail stating that my firefox is out of date. In my menu preference/advanced/update, it not the same as in the online help. No version/update buttons. I should not have to update manually my firefox. In the menu ?/about, I have no update button.

How to know if 30.0 for linux mint 1.0 is the good and latest one?

My UK Dell XPS keyboard somehow changed to USA. Before I could correct it the computer shut down and can't be reopened without the password. The password has a UK £ in it, and I can't type the £ with the US keyboard. When I type Alt+0163 nothing happens - it doesn't register as a key stroke.

So here's what happened. A year ago, I updated YTD Downloader on my computer. It was working before I did this, and after I did, it said that it could not connect to the internet. Soon I realised that this had happened to all devises on my computer (includuing I.E.) except for my old version of Firefox. If I try and update it, it stops working too.

I've tried everything, including the obvious answers online. I'm not set to any 'LAN' settings, and I don't have any add-ons or whatever. Forums like this are frustrating because once other people get their answer, the chat is over, while nothing works for me. It's been a year, and it is truly VERY frustrating to deal with this for so long. Can't use aps, can't download a LOT of software, and can't get my audiobooks. Can someone please help me out?

Just tried to switch to Firefox from Safari - How do I get rid of a recurring pop-up that asks if I want to install Flash to view content on the web site I just tried to visit. I have popups blocked in Preferences.

This may cause me to stop using Firefox as I don't want Flash on my computer - because of continuous requests to store unknown information on my computer.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There are several sites that offer Firefox downloads. I don't trust any of them except mozilla.org

But I can't find a download button on mozilla.

I'm using Linux because my firefox on Windows 7 stopped working and the default download seems to be for a Linux version of firefox.

How can I download a windows version?

Why did Firefox stop working. I was downloading a program -- Tunein Radio - and it looked as if it was installing junkware. I stopped the download but it seems to have already installed something called file opener. I uninstalled fire opener.

That may have caused the problem

It's not a high-priority question, I just want a general answer.

I read that Google renews the license of Google search bar on the Mozilla Firefox Start Page, and that's from where Mozilla makes 90% of its money, because it's a not-for-profit organisation.

I want to know whether I am giving Google a signal of making use of that license renewal when I search from the Start Page and not from the search bar I have.

I want to be able to click a link to a file and have the option to Open the file with a specified application.


When clicking on the file I want to Open with a specified application, I only get a Save or Cancel option. When I look in Preferences > Applications, the file type is missing from the list.

This was working. It is not working anymore. It is not a problem with the website. I need to know where in the FF settings I can change this.

FF 30.0 Kubuntu 13.10

Thanks

I am getting so irritated by Firefox update notifications interrupting my work and autmatic processes on MY computer. So much so that I regard this as an intrusion on my privacy and security. If necessary I will set up a web site to mount a campaign against this outrageous practice, which from reading some of the posts accessible I can see are also a source of concern to other users. Even in the best case where I could tolerate choosing a response "Ask later" providing that does not give Firefox carteblanche to ask me in 5 minutes. This is particulalrly irritating for me as I have my computer set up to perform automatic operations which then get sabotaged by these notification settings appearing frequently. I don't really want to have to chnage browser becasue I don't know if the others are any better. I require a clear answer from some of thse Mozilla staff on how I can kill these settings taking over my computer within 24 hours or I reserve the right to set up a campaign site to highlight this unacceptable behaviour on mozilla's part.

I would also advise Mozilla only IF they are interested in getting community support to streamline their web site so that users can more easily find out how to become members able to put questions, however uncomfortable for Mozillla. Very sincerely Brian Turner

We had a power outage and when my computer came back on it just opened up a blank session. Restore previous session was not offered as an option - it was greyed out. I (probably stupidly) tried closing and reopening. I've now read a lot of ways to restore them, but many of them I don't really understand. I've found the profile folder, and made a copy of the sessionstore files. Instructions say to right click and press properties and then select "previous versions". This is where I come unstuck. I don't seem to have that as an option. There are tabs "general", "script" "security" and "details" all with multiple sub-options. I can't seem to find anything that says previous versions. I even followed one instruction that said to do this on the folder rather than the file, but there was no option titled "previous versions" on that either. I'm (unfortunately) using windows 8.
