I'm getting a new PC later today and was wondering if I could export all of my Firefox settings and info (username/p-word combos for sites, cookies, bookmarks, etc.) from my Mac running OSX (10.4) to the new PC (Windows 7). Want to make the transition smooth as possible, and not having to reconfigure all that stuff would be a big help.

I have a Mac OS-10 which has operated smoothly for quite a while. This morning, for no reason I can figure out, an impersonal computer voice started to tell me where I was going, .i.e, when I'd go to one site, it would announce I was there. Every so often it will repeat "TEN FOUR FOX HAS NEW WINDOW." When I hit the caps just now, it said "CAPS LOCK ON" and just the reverse when I took them off. This is too creepy. How do I get rid of the voice that was never there until now? Did I somehow enable the voice by hitting a wrong key?

I have Firefox 3.6.27. I spent a couple hours filling out an application form. Got excited about looking up data for the form, and navigated to another page without opening a new tab. I went back, and the data is all gone.

Is there a way to get that data back? Or do I need to fill it out again?

Shoot.

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

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.
