I down loaded Firefox 4 as you promoted and lost internet service! Message says it won't work with my OS version. It took me a LONNNGG tome to locate the Firefox 3.6.16 to reinstall, so I am sending this in to help others. www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.6.16&os=osx&lang=en-US Your web site says you will soon no longer be adding improvements to 3.6.16, so I should switch to Firefox 4. How do I do that? I have no intentions of screwing up my Mac by upgrading to OS 5 or 6. I want to stay with OS 10. 4.11. And judging by the other help messages, I am far from the only one. Please fix Firefox 4 to work for OS 4! And WARN people about OS X needs Thanks

I recently starting experiencing problems with sites not loading in Firefox with the error "Connection was interrupted". I've consistently seen this problem trying to load accounts.google.com. The problem exists in both versions 3.6.26 (OS X 10.4 latest available) and 10.0.1 (Windows XP/7/server2k3). In every single case, other browsers on the same system (Safari, various IE versions) can load the same URLs just fine.

I've already verified no proxy (FF and working browsers, all OSes), disabled ipv6 and preteching in network.dns, disabled all add-ons, deleted existing profiles, cleared cache, and cleared recent history. Existing articles suggest disabling DNS prefetch,

Hi Re Mac intel... Firefox updated to 3.6.14 and advised Flash 10 be installed. I did this and now on YouTube videos all I see is a black screen with no play or pause button. System is OS X10.4.11 Do I need to uninstall Firefox and re load an earlier version and an earlier version of Flash etc... will I lose my bookmarks and firebug? If so not worth it. Would really appreciate help so sad not to be able to view any YouTube. Many thanks, Clare

I tried to update Firefox and it said permission was denied to do this. I am the one and only administrator on this computer. I have updated many times before. Why is this being denied now and where does this leave me security wise if I can't update?

I tried going to System Preferences/Accounts/Login Items, and Firefox is not checked "On" there. Then I tried changing my default browser to Safari instead of Firefox, but Firefox again launched automatically on startup! I have not added any new bookmarks. No one but me touches my computer, so nobody else could have changed a setting.

Suddenly, Firefox won't download a file from a clickable icon or web address. This seemed to occur after installing HideMyAss. When I click on a download address, or an icon, the page changes, (as opposed to just starting the download) attempts to load (status bar goes to halfway) and then nothing, it just sits there. If I try to download a torrent file, the same thing occurs, although I can download it using option+click. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Doug

Photos posted in albums on Facebook by friends are often too dark to identify the people. However, other people can go on Facebook and view the same album on their computers and they are fine. I use Firefox on a Mac OS X, version 10.4.11.

It happens frequently, but not with every photo in their album. Some will be OK and others are dark, but it is only on my computer that some are too dark.

I have a G5 Tower OSX 10.4.11 and am constantly receiving the yellow banner asking me to upgrade Firefox. Of course, Firefox Mozilla knows that I cannot upgrade on this operating system. If there is a way, please inform. Otherwise, what are my options, other than get a new computer. Or, obviously, change back to Safari which failed at playing videos. And now, I cannot even play videos with Firefox linked on FaceBook to youTube.

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it. I don't go on the internet every single time I start up my computer and don't like having to WAIT for it to start up so I can quit it. I don't know why it does this - never did before - and it is EXTREMELY annoying! HELP! I'm on a Macintosh operating with Tiger OS.

I am trying to create website changes and need to refresh a bunch to see my changes as I do this. I cannot get the page to refresh, no matter what I do. I'm on a Mac running OS 10.4.11 & Firefox 3.6.17.

I have tried holding the Command+Shift+R I have tried holding the Shift while clicking Reload.

The only thing that seems to work is going into the History and forcing a "Control+ Forget about this site"

As you can imagine this is a HUGE pain while making tons of changes to a page.

Please help! Thanks!
