After installing Firefox 4, Firefox would no longer ask to save tabs and windows on exit. Even after trying all suggestions to resolve the problem, the problem continued. Under the corrupted files suggestion to rename two files, that also did not help. The original file names would be recreated automatically, so both file name versions would exist in that folder. NOTHING resolves the problem.

Unfortunately, since that is a very desirable feature I, like other people who do not like Firefox 4, have gone back to an earlier version of Firefox.

What is the difference between Firefox 4 and version 5 thats expected in June? Is this a service pack for Firefox 4? Are they backwards compatible?

We are looking at supporting Firefox 4 but noticed that not all the plugins are available for it. Also there are a lot of issues reported on Firefox 4. We want to understand if Firefox 5 is a more stable version and if its going to be more of a service pack on Firefox 4 which reportedly has a lot of issues.

Secondly, is Firefox 5 backwards compatible with Firefox 4? Thanks for the feedback.

I haven't used silverlight yet as I can't get it going. Keep in mind I'm no computer boffin I just want ot be able to use artscow.com for making photo albums. When I try to view a page on artscow, which uses silverlight, I can see comments but no image which is silverlight not working. Very occasionally I'll get a grey screen saying silverlight has crashed but when I try to reload the page, I just get a blank screen. I use firefox 3.6.15 but it doesn't work in IE8 or chrome either. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times and still not working. I'm running on windows 7. Have checked firewall that silverlight is allowed program and all is ok but still not working. I have avast as my anti virus software. Have done everything that I can think of, perhaps someone could help me out? Cheers!

Help! Some mainstream websites I'm not able to read/use anymore since going to 3.6 because the variable text is displayed in Latin. Static parts of their pages display just fine. Also in fill-in fields, when I type it is displayed to me in Latin, but the actual value of my keystrokes is being communicated to the website accurately in English since searches come back w/the info I searched on. This is becoming more and more of a problem. An example of a web site that this consistently happens to me on is overstock.com How can I fix this? It's really starting to work on my last nerve.

I have an account with Commission Junction. On the account page there are pop-ups to click on for "training" "what's new" "contact us" and "help" I click on them and nothing happens. I have enabled the pop-up blocker. It works fine on IE, but I'd much rather use firefox. Is there a certain plug in that might not be updated, or something in the registry? I'm not much of a computer genius so any bit of help is appreciated. Thank you very much!!!!

This also happens when I start a new tab.

I have sofar tried: deleting places.sqlite. safe mode > reset toolbars uninstalling completely, and copying profile into new install.

There is a link on a particular job web page that I frequently visit. In IE, the link opens in a smaller window. In Firefox, it does nothing. The link is http://www.XXXXXX.com/Careers/default.shtm#. I am hopeful that there is a simple solution. Thanks.

I am navigating from a page http://www.XXXXXX.com/Careers/default.shtm to http://www.XXXXXX.com/Careers/default.shtm#. Only difference is the # at the end.

I have downloaded and installed your latest version and I have nothing but problems. It is so FULL of BUGS. I have to repeatedly reset my connection (don't have to on other system running previous version of Firefox) AND this evening tried to use a website to set a service appointment and the system with latest version DIDNOT WORK!!! System with previous version had no problems.

GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!!

I do not want to have to go bakc to IE but you are making it difficult to stay with you. FIX IT NOW!!!

Yes, I am ver frustrated. I do not like it when I have to spend hours trying to make software work. Why don't you hire people who know what they are doing instead of these kids from the "high profile schools" who don't know anything.

FIX THIS NOW!!!

The answers I was given did not solve the problem. After signing out from e-mail and going to Yahoo news,when I click on an article to read nothing moves up or down on the page. The timer comes on for awhile and a message says Moxilla not responding. After about a minute or longer everything starts to move and I can then read the article. If I come back to Yahoo news the same thing happens.

Once again the update, which is SUPPOSEDLY an upgrade screwed up the yahoo toolbar so that ALL the app buttons have disappeared and can't be reloaded. This seems to happen every other time Mozilla updates Firefox. WHY is it so impossible to do an update that doesn't screw this up? This is a common constant issue with updates.
