For a few months, Gmail has been requesting I upgrade to the newest Firefox. I always have the newest update. Currently it is 8.0.1. A few other apps, I don't remember which ones, request me to update Firefox as well--but I am! (Firefox as a browser seems to work just fine though.)

How can fix this?

Thanks,

Marty

Why does the iconised firefox window use a 256x256 bitmap? (Firefox 18.0, Centos 6.3, TWM)

I'm using twm on a new installation of Centos6.3, with Firefox 18.0. When I iconise the Firefox window the resulting icon bitmap (as used in twm's icons) is a rather large 256x256, rather than more usual sizes around the 16 to 32 mark.

I get the same effect with a remote session where twm is running on an older FC11 box but Firefox is running on the Centos one. In contrast, with Firefox 3.5.5 on the FC11 box the icon sizes are small as expected (and desired).

Investigating with xprop, I see that the _NET_WM_ICON(CARDINAL) property is set on the newer firefox and contains an entry for the 256x256 bitmap. It /seems/ like this bitmap is compiled in as renaming /usr/share/icons/hicolor/256x256/apps/firefox.png did not change the situation, and that was the only large firefox icon that I could find in the filesystem. Is there any way to tell firefox not to provide this large bitmap as a potential icon for the window manager?


EDIT: A satisfactory workaround in my case was to use ForceIcons as explained by AndrewA below. After inspecting the TWM source I found that the window name matching could be done on the WM_CLASS data as well as the name, so simply using "Firefox" as the string to match against works. Thanks again to AndrewA.

Every time I try to update to Firefox version 4.0.1, everything seems like it's gone okay. I experience no errors.

I've tried to download Firefox four times now. Each time I successfully clicked "Finish" with the option to launch my browser. And each time, when I try to download an addon, I get the frustrating message that I am still only using version 3.5.5 and I need version 3.6.

I am using an old Dell. Windows XP. Flash up to date.

I just updated to Firefox 7.0.1, but Google Mail is telling me I have an outdated version of Firefox and even when I go to the Mozilla site I get a message at the bottom of the screen that says I have an outdated version. I also can't install certain addons because they tell me that they don't work with 3.5.5. The version number in the browser does say 7.0.1, but it doesn't add like it.

Firefox has become untenable because it uses too much CPU and disrupts Flash videos.

I've tried disabling or changing the values of plugins. Installing older versions. Nothing helps. It just sucks. It makes me want to pull someone's lungs out.
