I was looking for a way to record a live streaming and came across the add on provided specifically for Firefox - however to use I had to upgrade to Firefox 6 and by doing so all of the settings and bookmarks I already had in my Firefox (5.54) went lost... sigh : how can I revert back to my previous version with all its settings? many thanks in advance for your help - I tried the "ripristina" funcion of Windows but for some reason it tells me that it cannot do it as there is (maybe) an antivirus in operation... I only have Hitman Pro and found no way to disable it temporarily... sigh... thanks in advance for your kind support Laura

I have an older Win 7 Started netbook with an Atom N450 processor. I currently have a very old version of FF on it - version 6.0.2. I haven't even used it for several years, but wanted to have a basic laptop for an upcoming trip. My question - can I update to the latest version of Firefox and still have it work on the netbook - or should I not even try?

Thanks so much!

A few days ago Firefox 25.1 upgraded to 26 and since then the the entire text of results I get when searching with Google blurs and trembles when I move the mouse over the result page. I cannot read more than a few words, the rest becomes distorted. If I somehow manage to open a link, the text inside the link is distorted too. I uninstalled v.26, would like to have v. 25.1 back but don't have its exe. file in my computer and can't find a place to download it. At this stage I installed 6.0.2 - the only exe. file I have but when I agreed to upgrade to 12 (I think), FIrefox stopped starting. So I uninstalled again and again installed the old version...

Just moved to a workstation with Windows 7 and Sea Monkey 2.3, and ever since, form fields on sites I've been able to access in the past (UPS, MCI, and vendor sites) are not visible. The templates of the web pages will load, but the input fields that should appear, along with their accompanying captions, do not. I can go to IE and the troublesome sites load just fine, but I'd rather work in Sea Monkey where all my user info and pssrds are.

Here is my issue, I create folders on my bar to organize my sites - I can't find a way to directly add urls to my folders. Only way I see is: I first have to bookmark the site, then go into Bookmarks, then move the site into my folder. This is a waste of time to me and inefficient. I like FireFox but with Safari I can add the site directly into my folder. Why would I want to add more steps? Am I missing something?

I have made Safari my default browser, made sure that Safari is NOT running and have deleted the profile. I try to drag the icon from the app folder, but it doesn't go into the trash bin.

What the hell happened? Today I noticed that the links provided by Google search no longer work. If I click a link offered by google search, nothing happens! The same screen is presented. I tested it with both Firefox 10 and Firefox 6. Same result. Only the google previews are available, but the links to the actual source are not clickable.

I also tried the exact same search with IE, and I'm sad to say that the problem is not with Google.

Deactivating Adblock did not change this anomaly.
