We've a new software which always opens a pop-up window when clicking on the Java links. The content of such a re-sizable window perfectly fits into a new tab. I'd like to force those new windows into a new tab. Pop-up blocker is active and that internal site is in the exception list. So it would be nice to have an option field for that in the general settings or in the Pop-up blocker settings. This is no bug, but could be a new feature of Firefox (like in IE). Thanks &

Kind regards, Peter Marbler

I wanted to upgrade from 3.6.3, but I could not find where and how to upgrade to the mostrecent version. So after several days of searching, I finally found a webpage where I could downbload the most recent version, but not how to upgrade from 3.6.3. So I downloaded 37.0.2. Now I don't know how to import the bookmarks. I am sorry, I just don't know how to follow your pages of information. I tried, but when I open v. 37.0.2 and drag down on "File", there is no import option.

I ask for instructions to import my Firefox version 3.6.3 bookmarks to the new Firefox version 37.0.2 I just downloaded.

This is so confusing to me. I tried to follow instruction prior to asking this question. I just can't do it. PLEASE Help.

Thanks for your time.

Very odd. I'm running Firefox V 3.6.3 under Ubuntu. Firefox works fine until my screen powers down from power savings mode. I have mine set for like 5 minutes I think. After it resumes you can't input from the keyboard. You CAN copy and paste to your hearts content but no keyboard input works. Seamonkey does not have this problem as i've left both browsers up at the same time to make sure it wasn't something with the ubuntu system.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Not sure. I think the last upgrade but didn't really notice it at first.

I have the current version of firefox, it is up to date however it says that I have an old version of firefox and need to update. I have tried removing the program completely and re-adding it, and it still says I am not up to date on the current version. I've gone to the Help section to check our version, and we are up to date. Any help out there?

I already tried permissions.default.image and it doesn't do anything. There used to be an option under the content tab in setting for turning off images and javascript. Do I don't want to open the page and then turn off images for that domain. I want to turn off images, click on a link, read the page, and turn them back on. Why? Because I'm at work and I don't want any weird images showing up. And no I don't want to install an addon. So how can I do it? Or is Firefox only for people who barely know how to turn on a PC now.

If I wanted to close the whole application, I would close the whole application. If I have one tab left and I close it, I want a blank tab. What is wrong with you guys now days? You are making such stupid decisions and shoving them down the user's throats. Did Ballmer takeover Mozilla or something?

I have Mozilla on my tablet and it works great. I tried to use it on my desktop today instead of Google Chrome and I am having trouble with a screen coming up called "Plugin Check & Updates" every time that I start Firefox. I tried to update (of course) but I cannot and I do not think I should have to anyway, considering that I am running Windows XP. I just do not want to see the Plugin screen every time that I start Mozilla Firefox. There must be a way to get rid of that screen? Thanks so much.

Toshiba Satellite PC running Windows 7.

Got message there was an update for Firefox. Manually clicked on it. After restarting the computer (as directed) I clicked on the Firefox short cut icon and the desktop froze. Alt/control/delete did not function--nothing functioned so forced the laptop to turn off by holding the power button down until it did so. Waited a few minutes and then turned it on, the monitor never came up--just stayed black. After a second attempt the computer turns on, lights on keyboard come on, but monitor remains black. No problems before attempting to update Firefox.

I am writing this on my Mac, as not way to use the PC with a black monitor.

Please help a desparate man, smile. A computer tech, , put ubuntu on my computer and installed firefox several years ago. Now when I try to update it to the new version, it wont update. I do see a note on the firefox instructions that if linus was placed on my computer with a distribution package, I think it said, whatever a distribution package is, I have to wait for an updated version, I think it said. I dont know if the tech who installed it used a distrution package and he is gone elsewhere and I cant ask him. I am a computer imbecile so thats all I know, and I cant get to many sites now because they only take updated firefox, PS I dont see any word help to click, where is this word located if I ever need to use it? Also lately after I tried to update firefox, not before, when I try to download anything to view that thing that starts with a p, three letters, like a medical article, it wont take me there, I merely get a box saying I am trying to dowload it, maybe that is linked to me not having an updated version of firefox. Please remember in your answer, I know almost nothing about computers. Thanks a lot. .

Hello,

I need to run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64 bit but I also need to update Firefox to run the latest version so Gmail will have all of its features.

I currently have Firefox 3.6.23.

I am new to Linux and have not installed many programs, and I don't know what to do to install it. I went to the Firefox website and downloaded the files for Firefox 30.0 (?). I extracted the files to a directory, now I don't know what to do... how do I install the program?? When I checked the firefox about menu nothing happens, the support page says it will automatically update to the latest version if you do that.

thanks! steve

see Question.

I know what version of Firefox and OS X I have. I believe that info is available to webservers in the User-Agent request header. Why not check that and not bother folks who have the latest browser version for the latest operating system for their hardware? If I had an extra $2000, believe me, I would get a new Mac.
