Re: Firefox 4

Dear Mozilla,

I thought that your 'mission' was to provide great products for EVERYONE. If that is the stated mission , then why is Firefox 4 not compatible with MAC OSX PPC ?

Mozilla should not be launching products that are not compatible. There are still many people out there who have old machines. By denying that segment, you are NOT FULFILLING YOUR MISSION STATEMENT.

I went to Firefox because Internet Explorer and even Apple Safari will not support PPC G3. If you are developing a version that is compatible, you should explicitly say that F4 does not work on Mac PPC's at this time.

This action ticks me off no end... Get with the program Mozilla

Like most Firefox users, I've been happily enjoying the Browse By Name feature. Now, all of a sudden, it's stopped working. Despite being fully functional within the last week, the address bar is now acting strangely. If I type in "facebook" Firefox attempts to load http://facebook/ . Same goes for a few other sites, like Twitter. If I type in "abc net au" then I get taken to abc.net.au, like I should, but if I type in "youtube" then I get taken to http://www.google.com.au/ . Needless to say this has me confused. Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox version: 3.6.17 OS: Mac OS X 10.4.11 PowerPC

Firefox reckons it's up to date.

After updating to firefox 3.6.8 on my macbook pro (OS X 10.4.11) Firefox fails to recognize subsequent mouse clicks. You can access the page initially, but then it seems to lose focus and become unresponsive to mouse clicks until you do something to break the cycle (clicking on desktop, minimizing and resizing window, etc). I reinstalled Adobe Flash update using full installer, since others have suggested that as a possible cause, but no joy. The browser window still does not recognize mouseclicks after an initially successful page load. You can tab to the next window (for example, if you want to enter something in search) but you cannot CLICK to enter the search window, nor can you click on links on the page, etc. It is totally unresponsive.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I updated Firefox to the version just before 3.6.8 -- then I updated to 3.6.8 to see if that fixed it -- it's still broken

I'm running on a Mac OS X 10.4.11 and my Firefox is 3.6.6. When I run all my other browsers (safari, opera) I'm able to see characters such as hearts and stars on a site like facebook. Only on firefox does it not show up, it doesn't even show boxes - it's just a blank space. It's really annoying, and I've tried everything with the character encoding to no avail. Font is still set to Western ISO 8859-1. is there a font I'm missing? But that can't be because I can see it in other browsers. Please please tell me someone's encountered something like this before. I haven't found anything anywhere so far. :/

After the update, when I start typing into the location bar, no prior urls pop up - I have to input all over again each time. This applies not only to locations from before the update, but to urls I have input since then - the location bar autocomplete doesn't seem to be functioning at all. If there's a simple way to turn it back on, I haven't found it. NOTE: Under the "Privacy" tab in Preferences, I have selected: "When using the location bar, suggest: History and Bookmarks."

Firefox is infested. 2 Min.s after entering, computer is 'taken over' for 10+ repeats of 'head thrashing'. Emails then sent out to China etc.

About 1 month ago, after starting firefox on my Mac Motorola/Power PC G4 running 10.4.11, after about 2 minutes I loose control of the computer -- the pointer becomes a spinning wheel. The computer 'head' I assume makes the same 'thrashing' sound 'Nuh-ni-ni' for 10+ times(slightly longer recently), then all becomes 'normal' no matter how long I am on. or if I close & re-open firefox. Restarting the computer, however re-initiates it,. Soon afterward, my Earthlink Suspect Folder has one of more emails returned by the 'Mailer Demon', or pending until they fail. Opening these emails(saved) shows a 'block' of weird characters(like the English 'Pound Stirling' sign) of the apparent length as the number of 'Nuh-ni-ni' sounds. They seem all addressed to people or places of 'Chinese'/Asian name. A lot fail -- some may not -- some may also now have personal/password information. Have emptied Cache History, installed Cookie & Beacon web plugins to no effect. On search, Quicktime noted that mine out of date & dangerous -- but update can't run on my 10.4.11 Don't know what to do. Seems scary & dangerous

I'm trying to install Firefox on a Mac G3 Powerbook running OS 10.4.11. I understand that 3.6 is the newest version of Firefox compatible with this OS. The first time I downloaded, I didn't notice the language selections, so downloaded the top (afrikanns) version. After discarding that version and downloading and installing the US English version, the Menus changed to English, but the Bar between the URLs and the tab titles remains in afrikanns.

I use Firefox 3.6.20 on a Macbook. Almost every bookmark I attempt to save will disappear immediately after doing do. Also, when I'm trying to organize my bookmarks into folders, doing so often makes the bookmarks disappear as well, rather than placing them in the selected folder. The action of dropping them in a folder will either multiply the bookmark into three bookmarks, or make it go away completely. How can I fix this?
