When I first open firefox it's pretty responsive. In about 10 minutes it starts slowing down. I'll click on something and it takes a long time to respond. In about 20-30 minutes it starts freezing up. If I move my mouse around it will sometimes respond, then it will just stop responding. When and if I X out I can't get firefox back until I reboot. However, if I go to Internet Explorer it works perfect.

Does Firefox 3.6 fully support Identity Safe in Norton Internet Security 2010?

I would like to know if FF 3.6 now supports the Identity Safe toolbar and logins feature of Norton Internet Security 2010? The last time I tried to update to the latest version of FF, I lost my Norton toolbar and all access to my Identity Safe and saved logins. I was forced to go back to the older version of FF in order to restore this feature.

I'd like to update to 3.6, but not at the expense of losing all my logins again. Likewise, the FF login/pw feature doesn't consistently prompt for new logins, and doesn't always fill in already saved ones, so I am relying heavily on Norton for this function.

TIA!

When I go to History in the Tool Bar I can go to Show All History and delete what is there, but even after deleted, if I click on Recently Closed Tabs, some websites visited will still be there, and I don't necessarily what anyone else tha might be using my desktop or laptop to view them. It's a privacy issue, don't you know. I have tried for three days noe and haven't found a way to get rid of them even if I delete all cookies.

What the title says... I want to upgrade from Firefox 3.0 to 3.6 on Backtrack/Unix. Apt-get install firefox/apt-get update, reports 0 updates available. Firefox -> Check for updates, reports 0 updates available. I have downloaded Firefox 3.6 manually for Linux, unpacked/extracted, but I don't know now what to do. I have tried executing Updater with ./updater, this gives me a usage screen reporting: "Usage: updater <dir-path> [parent-pid [working-dir callback args...]]". I thus tried ./updater / as I am already CD'd in same directory as updater, giving apparently no results. The application reports nothing and quits/finishes without any error. I have tried this both with Firefox running and not, and the version is not changed.

I have ver 3.6.13 (shows in About Mozilla Firefox at the top) though http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ reports it as 3.0.15. In "Help" --> "About Mozilla Firefox" at the bottom it shows "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.15) Gecko/2009101601 Firefox/3.0.15 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB". Why is there a difference between the version loaded and reported?

This happened even when I had the earlier 3.6.15 version loaded. I have a few add-ons installed: greasemonkey and 8 gm based scripts installed; AI Roboform; Better privacy 1.48.3; Java Console; Microsoft .Net Framework Assistant 1.2.1; Norton IPS; Norton toolbar; NoScript 2.0.8.1; Realplayer Browser Recorder plugin 1.1.3; Screengrab 0.96.3; Tineye Reverse Image Search.

I installed Firefox over a year ago and used it only a few times then remained with Internet Explorer. Clicking the ICON for Firefox results in a window"Firefox could not install this item because of a failure in Chrome Registration. Please contact the author about this problem." This window opens three or more times, I keep closing it and then Firefox opens. I was asked to download Firefox 3.6 and I did, but the invitation to download it continues to pop up.

I tried to update Firefox 3.0.15 to a newer version (I believe it's 4.0.1) and all the downloading went fine, but when I went to drag Firefox into the applications folder (using Mac OS X 10.6.7) it said that the operation couldn't be performed because I don't have permission to access some of the items. I shut down, did everything over again, and it still had the same problem.

Can someone help? I don't want to get hacked into.

Today I upgraded my Firefox to the latest version Mac OSX 10.4.11 can support. It is Firefox 3.0.15 and now all text is coming out in Serbian Cyrillic language. It is impossible to work, to read anything and to browse. With the older version of Firefox everything was OK. How to get English language on my browser? I tried to change the language in Preferences but it is OK, it says it is only English there.
