I was looking at the new version of Firefox and really don't like how it looks. If I update to it is there a way to make Firefox look like the old one? 3.6.24 is the version I'm using now, and I really like how it looks.

Firefox notifies me that I'm not running the latest version (I have 3.6.24 GTB7.1) and to download the version compatible with my older system (Mac Tiger 10.4.11). I click on that link and can find nothing that states what systems the version(s) there are compatible with. I have in the past downloaded and installed an incompatible version, a situation to avoid for obvious reasons.

Doesn't happen all the time but when I go to use my bookmarks or click on a link on my current page, redirects to a page saying AVG's isearch 'Oops, Page Not Found' or Firefox can't locate server at isearch.avg. Doesn't matter if is a new site I'm at for the first time or one I was just on or still on. Sometimes able refresh page or take a roundabout route to get to where I wanna go but not always.

It is funny that I should always open a terminal and input ~/firefox to start my firefox. Don't you think so? Why don't you provide an rpm package to replace the the former version? At least you can provide a .sh to do this. Firefox sucks at user experience!!! Firefox sucks! Firefox sucks! I am moving to chrome

Although easily done using I.E or Outlook, any attempt to paste an image into the body of a Yahoo Mail results in nothing happening when using Firefox. I do NOT want to use I.E.

This is a major problem. Attachments are no solution. In many industries, including mine, we like to send flyers as images or IN-LINE documents via email.

Will Firefox / Mozilla address this issue?

Is there a solution already?

Since late Oct 2011, my Firefox had been hanging while watching videos on Youtube. Any mouse action while a video is playing causes Firefox to hang (spinning wheel).

It turns out that I had caught the beta release of the new Gray Youtube interface - where the backgrounds of all youtube pages are gray.

I got myself back to the old interface by deleting all Youtube cookies.

I no longer have hangs. Page transitions are also much quicker, as was before.

Is there anyone else who has experienced the "new" interface, and problems?

If you do have the new youtube interface, but no problems, then I have more digging to do.


Update Dec 2, 2011:

I have the problem again now that Youtube has released their "new look" interface to everyone.

The problem is generally slow Firefox responses to mouse actions while watching Youtube videos. Firefox will hang completely 2-4 minutes into any Youtube video. (The video does continue to play a-ok.) FF becomes responsive again when the video ends playing.

Problem doesn't occur when I watch a youtube video right after starting FF after having "quit" it. Problem begins occur after FF has been running for a while (visiting other websites?) Is this a symptom of FF collecting some kind of crud in memory or disk?

My old Safari (3.2.1) doesn't have any problems. As far as I can see, both Firefox and Safari on my system use the same Adobe Flash Player.

So, this isn't a problem with Youtube, Flash Player, or my system, but a problem with Firefox (3.6.24) !?

Anybody (FF developers) have any ideas? I want to keep using FF!

I have been a happy Firefox user for years and have regularly installed the recommended upgrades on all 3 computers I use daily. My home desktop is a Power Mac G5, model 11,2, with a PowerPC G5 (1.1) processor with 2.3GHz speed. While this computer is old, gosh the screen is beautiful and there are no issues with the tasks I use it for. I'd like to continue using Firefox as my default browser. Is there an updated version I can use?
