I just updated to firefox 3.6.8 this morning after getting prompted to update as I started firefox. The firefox update successfully installed page said that I should update to the latest adobe flashplayer, so I did that as well, although that installation failed for whatever reason. I figured that I would update it later. I started watching live streaming videos on a website, and it was working for awhile, but firefox started to not respond. I tried opening up task manager, but even that started to lag and took minutes to open. The problem seemed resolved for awhile, but firefox started to not respond off and on, task manager stopped responding completely, explorer crashed, and my computer blue screened. It wouldn't even get off the blue screen after minutes of waiting, so I shut my laptop down manually. I'm positive that this couldn't have been a virus, since I only visited my usual websites, and I have both adblock plus and noscript installed. As for my laptop now, it won't boot to windows vista. I tried the hard drive test and failed. Now my laptop isn't even able to turn off no matter how long I hold down the power button. It's not an old laptop, so I doubt that it was just time for it to die.

I have always been a fan of firefox, but this is just horrible. I don't know if it was firefox's fault but it sure seems like it...

I'm currently on my older laptop, since my other one is obviously dead now. My broken one had vista installed and again, firefox 3.6.8 version.

I need to install older versions of FF in order to do compatibility testing against a web app.

When I look at the index of versions available at http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ I see nothing for version 4 of firefox. What gives? Where can I find the files to install that version. Ditto for version 6

Firefox 3.6.3 freezes, hangs, crashes, won't terminate, won't delete the stupid parental file when it crashes, I have to use Task Manager to manually close FF before re-attempting. I had less problems with a dial-up connection at 28.8 baud than this! It's practically unusable, and it this continues, myself and perhaps hundreds of thousands of Mozilla enthusiasts will cease to be so, abandoning Mozilla's products. After all, the recent changes to Thunderbird are the worst changes EVER made, virtually wiping out entire e-mail accounts and all of the e-mails contained in them with the stupid IMAP problems and not clearing mail servers. Let me know when Mozilla is dead, it's heading there very quickly. Actually, don't bother, I probably won't care anymore by then.

I opened Firefox & was told it had automatically updated to 3.5 (yes that is what it said). ALL my bookmarks, my bookmarks toolbar and my other two toolbars are GONE, my personalized home page is GONE. How do I get them back? VERY frustrated with Firefox which has been crashing a LOT lately, and several other updates have taken away my personalized home page. Why can we not keep these even tho you update?? Loosing my bookmarks is NOT ok with me. My Xmarks and delicious are Missing... HELP!

This happened

Just once or twice

I just sold a computer that I used to associate with weave, but some of the stuff from that computer is still showing up on my other computers. Is there a way to get that stuff out of the DB, since I no longer care about it, and have sold that computer?

Like, for example, in my "Tabs from Other Computers" screen, my sold computer is still listed as a computer, taking up space. How do I get rid of it?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Need to do a clean install of FF31 after bad sectors on HDD caused installed FF to crash Windows upon opening.

After running MRT update on Windows XP SP3, I rebooted my PC, and CHKDSK found and repaired four bad sectors on my HDD. After this, starting Firefox 31.0, even in Safe Mode, would cause Windows to freeze at the point the FF window appeared. No menus, no toolbars, just the window with the basic frame, but nothing inside it. All input devices were non-responsive, forcing me to do a hardware restart of my machine.

Upon restart, everything else worked fine until I tried to start FF - then the OS froze again.

Searching Firefox support, all answers I could find suggested deleting old (possibly corrupt) profile data with Profile Manager before reinstalling FF - but, if FF freezes the machine upon starting, there is no way to do that.

How do I MANUALLY delete all old profile data, other Firefox data files, and registry entries from my PC so that I can do a clean install of FF 31.0?

NOTE: The information given about my browser under "More System Details" is mostly WRONG. I am currently using the only browser that works - the outdated Orca Browser v1.2 with a Firefox 3 core. It is FF 31.0 that I am asking help with.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

I recently got a new Windows 7 laptop. I installed Microsoft Security Essentials then uninstalled the 30 Day Norton trial and installed Thunderbird and Firefox 3.6. Although Internet explorer and Thunderbird have no trouble accessing the internet, Firefox gives a message that it can not find any of the sites I have tried to reach. In an attempt to correct this I went to windows firewall and inserted an exception for both incoming and outgoing traffic for firefox.exe without any change in behaviour. The problem occurs on both my home and work networks. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple of times with no change. I've copied settings from a computer on which it works with no change. Is it possible that some remnant of Norton exists? Can anyone think of what I can do? Thanks.

Firefox widows update 3.6.8 showed size 11.0 MB from firefox auto update. I am on high speed internet connection and normally it took just seconds to update firefox but this time, it took 45 minutes to finish downloading. While it was downloading, I did my internet speed test. It was at 4MB/sec. I later check firefox website, the 3.6.8 file size should be 8 MB. I don't know if my firefox update download is legit. Although, after installation, the new version seem worked file. Any suggestions?

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

When I use Firefox and Earthlink webmail, I receive messages that look ok on the screen, but when I print them, crazy characters are shown on the printed page instead of the actual text that is on the screen. I tried clearing the cache, cookies and temp files and clearing the files in my computer's temporary folder using the "Start>Run>%temp%" method. Neither fix helped the problem.

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

Hi there, I have one question about firefox popup menus. At some site I'm clicking a link, and popup window appears. This is good because the site does notify that to work properly popup windows must be allowed in firefox. So the window appears, but with wrong chars coding, so I want to change it accessing View->Text Coding, but the problem is that the popup window doesn't contain any menu bar at all, it also has'nt any tool bar... the only thing that is showed in this window - the text, that the page contains. So how do I can make that popup window look normal (I mean it has to show menu bar, tool bar, and all other elements of firefox window) so I can change the text coding?
