I just installed Linus Freespire on a PC that Windows XP had crashed on, and happy to have it take on a new life. When I tried to browse myspace.com, I was forced to upgrade to Firefox 3.6 and downloaded it. It said it went to the desktop, but don't see it there. Instead I get a KArchiver window with Firefox-3.6.6.tar-1 in it. I have tried screwing around with it and its "wizard" until I am about ready to trash the whole thing. Can someone tell me what i need to do to upgrade Firefox 2.0.0.6 to Firefox 3.6.6 besides getting another degree? It would be nice if there where some hints.

I have tried to install Firefox 3.5 and 8 on a Win ME system - both fail with "Setup causes an error in Setup". Firefox 2 was okay. Messages from Firefox suggest an update is necessary,but I can't because setup does not work. I also cannnot provide FEEDBACK - because it suggests I need "The latest version" which I cannot install "simply" as it suggests on the feedback page. Is this a probplem with ME - as other browsers like IE and Chrome latest versions do not seem to like it either....am I stuck with old versions?

Used an Asus netbook running Linux / Firefox version 2.0.0.0.11 for 3 years no problems. Now I cannot use "Hotmail" on it as it requires an update to version as above.

It appears to download but not to open and I get the message "could not be opened because the associated helper application doe not exist" I am also not sure where I should be downloading it too but chose home/user.

I am very basic user but checked the File "open with" settings and there is no application for a tar.bz2

Any advice would be very much appreciated

We were recently given an older Gateway laptop that we intend to use solely as an internet terminal. Alas, it is running Windows ME and I don't even know if it has all the specs to upgrade (and certainly not to Vista, which is the only thing we have an install disk for). It currently has Firefox 2.0.0.20, which of course contains numerous security vulnerabilities and is incompatible with most newer plugins. What is the best version of Firefox that will work with Windows ME, and is it still available for download? Thanks!

I have installed Firefox 3.6.12 but BTYahoo Mail, YouTube and Flickr all seem to think I'm still using 2.0. In fact, even the form I filled in on this support site says I'm using 2.0!

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing, without removing plugins, extensions etc, but this did not resolve the problem.

Is there some way I can fix this without having to remove all my plugins etc and doing a complete re-install?

Upgrading to FF4.0, and manually rebooting again. Window opened and Yahoo toolbar was mostly gone, except for white search box and its search button. Both are currently disabled. All other buttons that were with my Yahoo TB are gone. Went to FF website using google search. Looked for Yahoo toolbar that worked with FF4. Followed the steps but FF continues to say: "You are currently using Firefox 2.0.0.20". This happened in two places. It is not recognizing that I have upgraded to FF4. How do i fix this?? Thanks so much!

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.

I am currently running Mac OS 10.3.9 and Firefox 2.0.0.20. I stumbled upon the page

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

which provides disk images for version 3.6.22. Somehow, my version of Firefox never got switched / updated to this version of Firefox automatically, which I would have expected to happen.

When I click on the link to download the Mac OS X US English version, I get a message that the disk image is corrupt. I thought the British might work, but it fails in the same way.

Is Firefox 3.6.22 incompatible with OS 10.3.9? Maybe that's the problem.

Thanks, Cheri

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?
