We've a new software which always opens a pop-up window when clicking on the Java links. The content of such a re-sizable window perfectly fits into a new tab. I'd like to force those new windows into a new tab. Pop-up blocker is active and that internal site is in the exception list. So it would be nice to have an option field for that in the general settings or in the Pop-up blocker settings. This is no bug, but could be a new feature of Firefox (like in IE). Thanks &

Kind regards, Peter Marbler

I have the current version of firefox, it is up to date however it says that I have an old version of firefox and need to update. I have tried removing the program completely and re-adding it, and it still says I am not up to date on the current version. I've gone to the Help section to check our version, and we are up to date. Any help out there?

Toshiba Satellite PC running Windows 7.

Got message there was an update for Firefox. Manually clicked on it. After restarting the computer (as directed) I clicked on the Firefox short cut icon and the desktop froze. Alt/control/delete did not function--nothing functioned so forced the laptop to turn off by holding the power button down until it did so. Waited a few minutes and then turned it on, the monitor never came up--just stayed black. After a second attempt the computer turns on, lights on keyboard come on, but monitor remains black. No problems before attempting to update Firefox.

I am writing this on my Mac, as not way to use the PC with a black monitor.

see Question.

I know what version of Firefox and OS X I have. I believe that info is available to webservers in the User-Agent request header. Why not check that and not bother folks who have the latest browser version for the latest operating system for their hardware? If I had an extra $2000, believe me, I would get a new Mac.

I go on to Facebook, it says Foxfire (version 30.0) is out of Date. I go to use Hulu or Crackle and again it says Foxfire is out of Date. I go to mozilla Support at the top, left side of the screen it says, "Your Foxfire is out of date and may contain a security risk".

While in Foxfire to check which version is on my Desktop PC by clicking on Help then scroll down to ABOUT Foxfire it says: 30.0 Foxfire IS up to date.

I do use Google Chrome however my TomTom GPS will NOT allow me to upload maps on Chrome but works fine with Foxfire.

Also a problem, Google's GMail will NOT allow me to open any of my E Mails on Foxfire. So am I using the latest version of Foxfire or not.

IF I am NOT using the latest of version of Foxfire please provide the link for the correct download.

Thanks in advance ~ CuriousVirg ~

I have never been able to get the updated Firefox version to read, so I am on AOL Basic Mail, because they don't support the old version, which has been replaced and updated 30 times, if not more. I need to get this to show in my system and I have not been able to get it to happen. Is there an override or something that I need to do when I update, because the system doesn't want to do it.

(At least I think it was updated. I got a message that I had to update and that it would do it on restart.) I'm on an iBook G4 with 10.5.8 (the most up-to-date system available for this computer). I've restarted my computer, and still the problems are there. It's strange since not only has my whole history been wiped, but when I try to add things back to the bookmarks again, nothing happens. I click on the "bookmark this page" and literally nothing happens. It's also not saving any of my history at all, even though in the Privacy preferences page everything is fine (Remember History is showing, as is History and Boookmarks). Help!?

I've re-downloaded multiple times, changed to Foxfire default online AND on my control panel setting etc and each time i open Foxfire it acts like I never downloaded anything or that it ever WAS made default. It did permit me to make my Comcast acct. as home site. I am so fed up with Chrome, don't trust Internet Exp. anymore and had so hoped that returning to Mozilla Foxfire would be the answer to my woes.

Needless to say, I'm not much of a techie, and I sure do wish I hadn't gone from Foxfire to Chrome in the first place!  : ( Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Jscher and Cor-el tried to help me a few years back w/o success. Trying again to upgrade from 3.6 (XP) to 27 (Win7). Exported from 3.6 as HTML file (also have json), and imported into 27. Last time, I never 'found' most of my bookmarks in FF 27. Especially not the folders. This time, I tried Library View and it appears everything is there, folders, subs, in sequence etc. BUT ... unlike in 3.6.28, I can still only see the contents of one folder in the right pane at a time.

     I can't work like that.

SO ... maybe, I can access ALL my bookmarks some other way (not via Library)? Via a toolbar perhaps? But for some reason, the collection in the toolbar doesn't remotely resemble the organized collection I see in the Library. Virtually no folders, and in chaotic order. Many missing it appears. If the contents from the Library were mirrored in the Toolbar (using AIOS), I'd be good to go. Is this what I should expect? What more can I try? Thanks!!!
