I did not upgrade for a long time and was probably on a 2.x release of some sort but last month I finally upgraded to 6.x and ever since Gmail and Pandora have told me my browser is out of date. I can still use Gmail but Pandora will not load anything.

I have cleared my cache and I have removed cookies but I still get the same error message.

I am using features that were introduced in version 6.x but even this site believes I'm using 3.5.9.

If I have to uninstall and reinstall, how can I do that without losing all of my saved passwords and other information?

Firefox has gotten extremely slow. Typing, loading, searching, even just scrolling from the top of a page to the bottom. My daughter had the same thing happen to her and had to get her computer stripped down and completely reloaded. I don't have that option. It has no viruses and has been completely freed of all things that could slow it down.

Normally, when I want to bookmark a webpage, I right click on web page and select "bookmark this page", then additional selection choices come up allowing me to choose the save folder options, changing the description properties of the website, etc. For several days all options no longer occur - i.e. when I right click, I choose "bookmark this page" and it simply saves to the bottom of the default list. I've since rebooted thinking that might cure it but to no avail. I've checked under /tools/options but cannot seem to find a cure. Please help. I am running Firefox 3.5.9 w/ Windows XP sp3.

I just started using Charter cable - maybe the extensions it installed caused the problems. See list below.

What do I need to do to open the downloaded file? It appears that stuff downloaded via safari is in one file and downloads via Firefox are in another.

Typing: firefox "/home/user/document.htm#bookmark" places file:///home/user/document%23bookmark in the path. Yet the error message says "Firefox can't find the file at /home/user/document#bookmark." So it gets the path right for the error message but wrong for the path. If I go to the path in firefox window and replace the "%23" with the "#" the file loads correctly at the expected bookmark.
