Just bought a new Win7 machine & am waiting for broadband hookup. Installed a dialup modem in the new machine but the download speed is about 1/4 of that of my trusty old W98SE machine. Can I use my W98 machine to download the latest FF installation files to my harddrive then copy those files to a CD and then use the CD to install FF onto my Window 7 machine?

need separate instances/profiles WITHOUT manual profile selection

My wife has a laptop (WinXp, updated) running Firefox 3.6.12 which we both use when away from home. She has more than a dozen saved tabs which of course reappear each time FF is started (and heaven help me if I were to close FF without them being saved!).

If a second instance is started, it shows just the home page - great. I'm not game to close the first instance and then the second, in case the saved tabs from i1 get buried (see above para).

By way of example, I have Eudora as a mail client on my desktop machine with two separate non-interacting instances. That's the sort of thing I'd like to achieve on her laptop with FF - a separate FF config/icon so that a completely unrelated instance can be set up and saved with its own data - not a dozen+ tabs, but not interfering with the SWMBO setup. Is this possible, and if so can someone tell me how to do it?

I should mention that the FF Profile Manager doesn't *quite* do what we would like - ideally two separate desktop icons, each linked to its own profile, with the equivalent of the "don't ask" selected for each so we don't need to manually select a profile at startup. It is possible that both instances will be concurrent.

Please, will someone tell me how to configure Firefox 3.6 to color the URL address when on a secure website.

Earlier versions of Firefox, such as 2.0, would change the color of the URL or website address from white to yellow when it went from an unsecured website (http) to a secured website (https). Although my eyesight has been getting worse, this feature made it very easy to glance at the address & know I was on a secure website. Firefox 3.6 does not make such a color change. I would greatly appreciate it someone would tell me how to configure Firefox 3.6 to act like 2.0 in this matter.
