I'm being 'bombarded' with requests from FF and several other websites for me to UPGRADE my browser. Sooooo....I click on the FF Upgrade link....then something appears on my desktop...but then...NOTHING is really downloaded...that is, I STILL have the same old FF version on my PC . I get a little 'confirmation' note from FF stating that the download is complete....but, still.....NOTHING (just the same outdated FF browser). This process has repeated itself for the past several months...and it's very frustrating (to say the least).

In trying to upgrade Firefox it said to uninstall Norton. I have not subscribed to Norton for over two years now. In the Uninstall program, Norton will not uninstall. I have clicked both uninstall and change and nothing happens, therefore I am unable to download Norton to upgrade Firefox. There must be an alternative method to uninstall Norton.

I have no "open with" option for downloads

I click on a file within a website to open it, but the pop up box does not have the "open with.." option, only the save option. The file type is a text document with the extension ".prg" which is associated in my Windows Folder Options to open with Wordpad. Within Firefox Tools/Options/Applications, this file type does not show up, so I cannot change it. I read elsewhere where this is blamed on MIME type in the HTML header, but Microsoft Internet Explorer gets it right every time, only Firefox does not recognize the file type.

As an aside, the same site has files with the extension".chg" that I open with Notepad. Firefox gives the "open with" option for these files, with Notepad as the defauld, but the "Always open with" is greyed out. Not that I care, as the default is what I want, but....

I need the latest version for a Mac Powerbook G4 running OS-X 10.4.11 and I cannot find older versions of Firefox on your website.

The last version I downloaded was Firefox 3.5.6, but I could never get it to work correctly, so I stuck with Netscape 9.0.0.5 for many of my web browsing needs. I now find needed websites are now not supporting this Netscape version, but I cannot find the version of Firefox that can run on my computer.
