The autocomplete on my navigation bar has been broken for a while. I have tried all the suggestions given on the firefox help website but it hasn't fixed it. I am currently running firefox 3.6 since I'm still using a mac 10.4.11 I don't think I can update past that version. I would really love some help as typing out the full web address is so tedious and annoying!

My version is currently 3.6.26 according to "about Firefox". I've been having a lot of crashes and when I restart Firefox a window opens that says I have Firefox 3.0.5.

I thought maybe I could solve all my problems by downloading a fresh version and reinstalling.

The Mozilla web page said Mozilla would autodetect the version I need and download it.

What downloaded is titled Firefox 11.0b1 which apparently is not supported on OSX 10.4.11.

Any ideas?

Firefox urged me to update from 3.6 to 14.0, so I did. At the end of the process I was told that "14.0 is not compatible with your OSX system". I have since been unable to access Firefox, and lost all my bookmarks and other info. Also, my computer is slow since then (I"m using Safari). I hope you can help me reverse this, or do what is necessary to get back to Firefox.

I think you should alert people to this incompatibility before urging them to update! Thanks very much.

I use the old computer for one purpose and only go to my bank site... This unexpected update makes me nervous. Once it had updated Firefox told me that my system was out of date ( which I know) and that firefox would not work.... yet it does work... What is going on ? I had no problems before the update.

Toshiba Satellite PC running Windows 7.

Got message there was an update for Firefox. Manually clicked on it. After restarting the computer (as directed) I clicked on the Firefox short cut icon and the desktop froze. Alt/control/delete did not function--nothing functioned so forced the laptop to turn off by holding the power button down until it did so. Waited a few minutes and then turned it on, the monitor never came up--just stayed black. After a second attempt the computer turns on, lights on keyboard come on, but monitor remains black. No problems before attempting to update Firefox.

I am writing this on my Mac, as not way to use the PC with a black monitor.

Upgrading Firefox, i mistakenly moved my old profile to my desktop to save it in case something went wrong. When trying to put it back where i stole it from, i forgot which file it came from and went to where i thought it came from and found a new profile existed there. Error message says two browsers can not be open at the same time. Can't turn off the FFX browser because it won't display as open. i have trashed everything labled Firefox using apple command find and then attempted to install a new downloaded copy. Still gets same message as if the newly downloaded copy is already running.

I'm not sure whether or not the cursor activates this problem as it happens to pass over a word that wikipedia is programed to respond to w/ this definition balloon--it happens too fast for me to back track and figure out what i might have done that triggers its appearance. Seems random. No X to close balloon. Sometimes clicking cursor outside the balloon shuts if off...sometimes i can't get rid of it.Random occurrences of balloon but enough to be annoying.NOTE! Just now in hilighting "trouble shooting info" from Help menu, a balloon appeared w/ 4 icons:google, search Wikipedia, search duckduckgo and search surf canyon. This balloon appeared when the cursor went over the hi lighted text...it's like the Wikipedia dictionary definitions balloon i get when i'm reading online text! Connected?

I have installed the https everywhere add-on a while ago.

Since I've done this I've never been able to click on images each time I was doing a Google search from their first page of results ("search everything"), but I could still find images by going directly to Google Images search.

Since I installed the latest update for https everywhere this morning, I simply cannot search a single image with Google, which is a problem as I'm a professional art historian. I get the message"Your search - rembrandt - could not be completed with the requested search options. Reset search tools". But resetting the search tools don't change anything. I'm working on a Mac, if it helps.

Fast flashing images affect me and it concerns me that some might trigger seizures, can I turn off flash animations? It would be useful for photosensitive individuals.

For instance my email providers email page has had Jackpot.com adverts with rapidly flashing images that are bordering on the edge of subliminal, other advertisers do this type of advert as well, they wouldn't be allowed on TV because of the risks so it would empower Firefox users if they could toggle flash animations with an on/off switch.

It's not Firefoxes fault in any way, I install Firefox on all my computers because it outperforms everything else I've tried.
