I keep getting "update" messages from Firefox, but when I try to update I get a "corrupt image" message. I suspect I cannot update because I am using Mac OS X 10.3.9 and the update is for 10.4. (I'm currently using Firefox 2/0/0/20.) Is there an update I could use? Or is it time for a new Mac?

I changed from a View Sonics monitor to a Samsung 20." I've tried changing resolutions to no avail. When I click on Tools>Options>Advanced, I'm supposed to get a full window. The bottom half of mine is cut off and I cannot set FF to be my default browser. Anyone know what to do? Many thanks and may the Fox keep wrapping his tail around the globe.

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?

Hi, I am trying to move into my new IMac. Everything is good except the old G4 running 10.3.9 with Firefox/2.0.0.20 cannot export bookmarks. I could transfer them via a external hard drive if I could get them to export. The IMac 10.7.2 will not recognize the old Mac.

I am running an older version of Mozilla V 2.0.0.20 on an IBM Pentium III Processor w/ 256MB of RAM and Win/ME - is there a place where I can get a newer release of Firefox - but not the latest. The present Version 24 does not support this operating system. A certain website 'bright.com' does not recognize this version I am using as valid - stating my browser is 'older than dirt' (which it is) and to upgrade.

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.

Killing firefox from a script with 'kill pid' works, but there is a good chance that the next time you start firefox you get the 'Restore Session' page instead of the home page. This is not nice for my 'professional' application to be delivered to European Space Agency.

Could you tell me the signal to send to force a clean termination of the firefox process, or the directories to clean to avoid getting the 'Restore session' page?

Thanks in advance

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

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!
