I was running Firefox 3 on my system (do not remember which specific version now), and due to all the nags about that version being out of date, I decided it was finally time to upgrade. I installed v25, and suddenly found I could not load web pages. I tried all the support documents I could find, but none of them helped. I installed v24 instead, but same issue.

I removed Firefox and installed using 3.6.17, which I had downloaded previously just in case of problems with the upgrade, and Firefox works again. I have not tried any versions in between yet, so I do not know which version these issues start with, but I know it is tied to 24 and 25 at least.

I have been getting a pop-up for months now telling me to upgrade to at least Snow Leopard. I finally made the leap forward to Snow Leopard and I still can't download the latest version of Firefox. What's more, I no longer can play movies on Netflix. Just get a black screen. Why is this?

I have tried all options under tools options advanced update and NONE of them disable automatic updates. Whichever one is selected, at some point Firefox will upgrade without getting user approval, which is complete and utter crap.

I have to maintain an application which must run on Firefox version 3.6, cannot be ported to any later version, and is only used to access the control application.

I'm sick and tired of having to uninstall and reinstall Firefox every time it goes in direct violation of my settings and updates itself automatically. Why even have a setting for this if hte setting is completely ineffectual?

As I indicated above, for the past 6 years I have been listening to streaming audio radio stations on www.republicbroadcasting.org on the "listen live" page, but about 2 months ago every time that I pushed the cursor to activate the Winamp player, or any other player, and I mean EVERY time, Mozilla would crash and ask for a crash report to send to you people. The same thing happens when I try to listen to a previous radio show in their extensive archives. By using Microsoft Internet Explorer, I can at least listen to their live streaming audio shows. What gives? Why did this happen after 6 years???

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!

Hi all, 1st time 4 me on these forums. Well, straight 2 the topic.

I'm using version 3.6.17 since i didn't like version four. In Options=>Advanced=>Network, there's a section called "Offline Storage", I think that's the one that handles storing webpage data so that it opens faster the next time u open it, similar to "temporary files" in IE, right? Well its "usually" not working for me, & I figured it out from two reasons.

First, the "Exceptions" are empty & the box at the bottom (not the exceptions box) which is supposed 2 list the websites storing data is also empty, second, pages r actually not opening fast, I can see all the components (frames, images etc...) being loaded like its the first time i'm opening it.

But I would like to clarify, I said "usually" in my 1st paragraph, why? because even though the settings doesn't say i'm storing any data, I notice a few sites that r actually being loaded fast. Only "some" sites, while the rest of them r actually loaded like new every time.

I'm not bad in computer stuff but I'm clueless on this, I hope u can help me out, I'll be glad 2 do any diagnostics if needed.

Sorry Mozilla, but Firefox 4 sucks big time. I uninstalled and downloaded 3.6.17. I've turned off automatic updates. V4 breaks JQuery and who knows what else, so I'll be a lifelong customer of my v3.6.17 version, coz I'm just not going to have established, clean, awesome code killed by the browser! Only I build web apps so I've got to get all my clients to stop upgrading, too. I've been a Firefox guy for years now, but this is the end of my rope. Chrome is pretty good, as is Safari. I guess one of these is going to be my browser going forward.
