I look at the forum and see all sorts of problems being talked about when people make the switch from FF3 to FF4, and I don't want the aggravation. So I'd like to try out FF4 and work my way into it while still being able to use FF3 which I know works well and doesn't give me any hassles.

I'm afraid that if I install FF4 then I'll no longer be able to use FF3 and I will have to fiddle with FF4 for days and days to get it to work properly, and during that switch-over period I won't be able to access the internet as easily as I can now with FF3, and will lose valuable time and get frustrated and wish I hadn't made the switch in the first place. I've had that problem in the past when upgrading an earlier version of FF and it was very frustrating indeed.

So to put the question again, can I install FF4, but be able to continue using FF3 while getting FF4 configured and fine-tuned with all the features, layout etc. that I want (a process which, in my experience, always takes more time than one would have thought)?

I use FF 3.5.19 and it works fine but support has ended. I have tried various 3.6.xx and now 4.x and they all do the same thing. Whenever I select tools...options, nothing happens and if I wait a few minutes or click the mouse I get "not responding" in the top bar. FF also freezes on downloads. I would love to get this sorted out, I really like FF. I've tried to get answers in the past and have done what was suggested but nothing worked

Every time I try to do the following in FF 12.0, the browser stops responding/hangs/freezes/basically says "sorry, dude:"

1. Download files either by right clicking and choosing "save" or clicking directly on it. This includes email attachments, videos, etc. I also cannot attach files to emails since the same thing happens the moment I hit "Browse."

2. Cannot access Tools/Options/Applications, usually getting the same results. In my various attempts to resolve this, I have been able to open that window, but the space where file associations are listed is empty.

If it's any help, when I've reverted back to FF 3.5.1.9, I can do all those things ... I just can't get "Words With Friends" to load in Facebook.

What I have done in an attempt to correct this issue:

1.) Everything, including deleting the various .rdf files, etc.

2.) Tried starting in safe mode, using every possible variation.

3.) Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox around a hundred times, removing personal settings and cleaning the registry each time.

4.) Uninstalled and reinstalled Flash and Java three or four times each.

5.) Everything.

I am at my wit's end, thus the request for help. Unfortunately, if someone offers a solution, I've probably tried it.

Additional information: I did use firetune once, returned to the backup configuration I created, used it again and returned to the backup again. This seems to be right around the time the problems began, but I'm not positive.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Running WinXP Media, 512MB RAM, 32-bit, etc.

I rather not have to upgrade to 4.0 at this time so is this possible? Will the manual downloaded version just update firefox or will it install on top of the current 3.5.19 version?

Fox4 says that it PREVENTs the user from having two tabs open to the same URL. There are times when I WANT multiple open tabs! Can I override this? (Please tell me. If I can't, then I don't want Fox4. I'll stick with 3.x and NoScript.) Thanks.

Tell me EXACTLY how to FORCE Fox4 to allow me to have MORE THAN ONE tab open to any given web page. Otherwise, I have to stick with Fox3. Precise details, please. Thanks… (tuilleadh eolais)

Why aren't Firefox system requirements and release information made readily available via links on the main Firefox pages? I can find them easily enough via Google, but I wonder why they cannot be found from within mozilla.com. Even a search in "Firefox Help" with the string "firefox 6 requirements" doesn't find the information. Is it an oversight, the community is too busy, or is it assumed that such information is not relevant in this day and age?
