I would like to upgrade to the newest Firefox version, but it's not allowing me to (& check for updates is disabled) even though I'm signed in as the administrator. How do I change this? How do I get to the installer preferences?

Firefox 3.0.19 on Kubuntu9.04 (jaunty) keeps crashing when I try and download files. I have tried deleting downloads.sqlite. I have also tried creating a new profile. Neither has helped.

If I right click on a link and choose "Save link as" I can download files. But If I left click on the link the downloader menu does not appear and Firefox completely shuts down.

I have used firefox for a long time and had no problems. Now, all of a sudden when I open my bookmarks or hotmail they open a new window and not a tab. I never changed anything to make this happen it just started happening. I turned my computer on and restarted it but it didn't help. I already tried different things and then I went on firefox support and I read my problem on the forum and what I should do about it. (I have a mac) Someone said to go to about:config and then go to browser.link.open_newwindow and chage it to 3 but when I typed in about:config it says warning this could void your warranty do not go here unless you know what you're doing! Needless to say, I got scared and stopped!!

Until last week (7/2010) when I opened an email w/ photo (or scanned) attachment the photo appeared in the body of the email and the attachment "paperclip" showed next to the email in the inbox. Last week I was trying to take an image from an email and make it my desktop wallpaper - but I hit a different selection in error and now my photos do not load automatically. It must be a problem w/ Firefox as it works fine in Explorer

I usually have a bunch of links open, so I have the settings set so my previous tabs always open. Most of the time, they do. Every once in a while, like today, though, Firefox decides to open to my home page instead. I never know when it is going to do this, so I never know which links to save in case it happens. Often, therefore, I lose several of the links I had open.

I am looking for a HTML to JSON converter and a JSON to HTML converter. All solutions I have seen so far essentially have answers of the type "Do 3 backflips, stand on your head for 2 hours, do another 3 backflips, etc. It seems to me that someone would have produce (a) converter(s) that would convert in either direction. All I have seen are questions as to why anyone would want to do such a thing and then a solution comparable to that described above.
