I now see that as of 8/1, "Jorge" has 'blocked' a supposedly malicious version of Flash. There is a VALID comment from a user, pointing out correctly that this 'block' is badly implemented, and actually causes blocking of LEGIT flash downloads directly from Adobe.com. This is the case with the Firefox approved solution: uninstall Flash and install / roll back to 10.3. Firefox now refuses to recognize ANY flash version. What kind of testing - if any - do you 'software' jockeys use?? Over the last few years, as FF has grown larger and bloatfilled, the 'design by committee' approach is showing its real faults. You seem unable to exercise any kind of real quality control at all. I think, like the other gentleman, I may be FORCED to go to (almost any) alternate browser.

I opened up Firefox this morning and saw the Plug-In tab pop up as well as my normal home page. I managed to successfully update Java but I tried to update Adobe (I downloaded it and then restarted the browser and it still showed up as being out of date and in need of update). I don't know what to do and I want the plug-in tab to go away.

I like the look and feel of Firefox 3.6.17, but I don't like the look and feel of Firefox 12.

In Firefox 12, there is no menu bar, no navigation bar. All you get are open bookmarks at the top.

How do I get the menu bar and navigation bar back in Firefox 12?

I also have the Miku Hatsune Bathing Suit picture installed on my Firefox, where the picture appears in the menu bar and the navigation bar. How do I reproduce the same in Firefox 12?

Newer is not always better. Some people still prefer old things.

I am using a dial up connection. I have tried several times to update to FF 12. most connections are 24 at best usually at night. The last download showed Firefox scanning for viruses. I have been unable to locate the downloads anywhere. Very often the download just disappears before finishing. I have tried 4 times.This connection is at a weekend home where the computer is used infrequently. Down loads are difficult at all times due to the very slow connection.

Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have the Google search box function in the top bar next to the web address window. When I type a search word or term I am taken to google.gr (becasue I am in Greece). However, I want google.com but even if I type www.google.com in the address window I am sent to .gr Is this a Firefox problem (new to me) or a google one? I can log into my google account at .gr but as it's in Greek I can't find a way to make changes there. It only started happening this morning and I've had Firefox for a while now. Odd. I am on an old version of Firefox, and this problem stared when I tried to install 12. I didn't like 12 as it's not compatible with the plugins I like, so I went back to 3.6.17 which works perfectly apart from this problem.
