Recently I received a pop-up from "Firefox" telling me I urgently needed to update my browser. Even though I thought this was strange, I did it, and ever since I have been getting pop-ups when I start up my computer and randomly while browsing. This same message just popped up again from this address:

http://softocheck.org/update?get=bcbd82d0eeef5d229c2163d54195228d

Is there a way to fix this? I've tried going to my control panel and deleting unfamiliar programs. Twice I've had to delete something from an unknown source titles "dofus" (go figure..). At the very least I thought it should be brought to Mozilla's attention.

When I am typing an blog or e-mail and hit backspace, instead of deleting the character, Firefox navigates backwards...which erases everything I type. Firefox does not cache or save anything so I have to start over.

I tried options, setting, preferences...I cannot find a way to turn this annoying 'feature' off.

Firefox has been closing a lot lately. Normally it wouldn't bother me much. I don't recall what I was doing each time, but I do know that it has happened only when I let it sit on a single page for a while. This time I was writing up a very long reply to something in the Gaia Online forums. I also had Facebook and a Wikia site open in different tabs. I'm displeased because I lost what I was working on, and Firefox completely froze and I was unable to copy my work. Finally it closed and I had to start it up again. There was no problem bringing it back up.

I am unable to supply Crash IDs, because I have never been asked to do this. Nothing comes up. It just closes. That's it.

I'm thinking it could be because Firefox is a complete resource hog. My CPU usage consistently goes up and down from 86-100%. I disabled Java, as I read somewhere that this may help. It hasn't. Updating Flash is out of the question, because I have frequently attempted this, yet the update never appears to work with Firefox, but it does with Internet Explorer (which I don't use because it's so slow).

I'm quite frustrated. Firefox was working perfectly for the first few months I used it. I've ran scans, and there appears to be no malware or the like. I run SuperAntiSpyware on my computer, as it was able to get rid of Vundo when nothing else I tried would (I used AVG for a while).

I've been having this problem for a couple of weeks, now, and I've run out of ways to try and fix this.

One day, after starting my computer up, I opened Firefox. No big deal, everything looks fine, tabs are working, etc. Then, when I went to open a second window, nothing. The first window still works fine, I can open tab upon tab, but it just won't open any more windows.

As much as I'm a fan of the browser tabs, I still prefer to have them spread out over more than one window.

I've read through a ton of different troubleshooting walkthroughs and whatnot, reinstalled three or four times, restored settings, but nothing works.

Well, not entirely, I guess. Here's the part that I can't quite figure out. When I disable every single addon, Firefox works just fine. I've done the checking down the list, trying to single one out, but it's *any* addon. Even something as simple as a dictionary search (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../68/) causes this to happen.

I've checked with an older computer with an older version of Firefox, and it still seems to work fine with addons enabled, so I'm wondering if this is an update issue?

Would reverting back to a previous version of Firefox solve this, and if so, where would I be able to find downloads for a previous version?

So, like I said, I'm at a bit of a loss here. Sort of at a crossroads for trying to figure out what to try next, so I'm hoping someone a bit more knowledgeable can help steer me in a direction.

Edit: I just noticed that the posting includes system information with my question. I should clarify that I'm posting this from an older computer with an older version of Firefox. On the computer that I'm having this issue with, I'm using the newest version of Firefox (3.6.8).

I reinstalled it several times, deleting the old icons on my application folder, and desktop. Don't know a lot about this but I've never had any issues with mozilla before. I just want it to be up to date. Haven't installed any weird programs lately either and I don't have anything that blocks it.

Dear Forum,

I'd like to use a customised style sheet to view web pages in the browser. I'm sure I've read in the past that this is possible and I thought it was possible in Firefox. Am I right or wrong in thinking I can do this? If I'm right, how do I do it please?

I'm using Firefox 3.0.19 on Windows XP SP3. I haven't yet upgraded to current latest Firefox 3.6.10 as add-on IETab won't yet work in this version.

Thanks for any help you can give.
