I was looking for a way to record a live streaming and came across the add on provided specifically for Firefox - however to use I had to upgrade to Firefox 6 and by doing so all of the settings and bookmarks I already had in my Firefox (5.54) went lost... sigh : how can I revert back to my previous version with all its settings? many thanks in advance for your help - I tried the "ripristina" funcion of Windows but for some reason it tells me that it cannot do it as there is (maybe) an antivirus in operation... I only have Hitman Pro and found no way to disable it temporarily... sigh... thanks in advance for your kind support Laura

I have an older Win 7 Started netbook with an Atom N450 processor. I currently have a very old version of FF on it - version 6.0.2. I haven't even used it for several years, but wanted to have a basic laptop for an upcoming trip. My question - can I update to the latest version of Firefox and still have it work on the netbook - or should I not even try?

Thanks so much!

in internet explorer, when you click on a picture in ebay to enlarge it, there is a scale in the toolbar (?) in the lower right corner of the screen that allows you to change the size of the picture. is there some way (or tool or add-on or whatever) that will let me do that in firefox?

A few days ago Firefox 25.1 upgraded to 26 and since then the the entire text of results I get when searching with Google blurs and trembles when I move the mouse over the result page. I cannot read more than a few words, the rest becomes distorted. If I somehow manage to open a link, the text inside the link is distorted too. I uninstalled v.26, would like to have v. 25.1 back but don't have its exe. file in my computer and can't find a place to download it. At this stage I installed 6.0.2 - the only exe. file I have but when I agreed to upgrade to 12 (I think), FIrefox stopped starting. So I uninstalled again and again installed the old version...

Hi when I instal ver. 25 of Firefox I have a problem with Yahoo mail. I get all this script instead of the email it does not matter which email it happens with every one I try. If I use an older version I have no problem with emails but have problems with things like youtube. I am running Windos 7. To be quite honest I had these problems before when Firefox automatically updated and spoke to Yahoo about it, seems they did not have a clue. I showed the problem to an I T friend and they were likewise stumped and suggested that I unistal it and reinstal an earlier version which I did with the above mentioned problem currently running ver 6.0.1
