FF 3.0.10 avoids cookies very effectively when enable cookies box is unchecked. FF 3.6.8 does not have ability to avoid cookies when enable cookies box is unchecked. Web sites are able to over-ride unchecked cookies setting, and insert cookies in unlimited fashion. Are FF 3.6.7 through FF 3.6.10 able to avoid this cookie over-ride process by these visited web sites ? What is reason for this vulnerability open door in FF 3.6.8 ? Running on WIN XP system. When use FF 3.0.10 to go to same sites, there is no problem with cookies control. Thank you for your help.

I currently have version 3.0.10 and have gotten two prompts to upgrade my version of firefox and each time I do install the new version and then try to start up Firefox, I get a page instead that says proxy server is refusing connections and the only way to browse is to re-install the old version. I also have to re-install the old version at least 3 times before I can use Personas.

This is my second attempt to contact you about this issue. The update to Firefox is not being recognized. When I click "About Firefox", I am given the information that I have 5.0. However, your own site does not recognize it when I attempt to download add-ons that require anything higher than 3.0. The information your site collects on my browser (shown to me below this box when I click "Show details") says that I am using 3.0. I tried to download something from another website that won't allow because it requires an up to date version of Firefox. Please assist me!
