I am using Linux and want to upgrade my Firefox to version 3.6. I clicked on the link on the Mozilla webpage and it only gave me the option of saving the file, which I did, and the Downloads window opened with 'firefox-3.6.12.tar.bz2' in it. When i click on this to open it, it pops up with the Launch Application window asking which application I want to open it with. I don't know which one I am meant to use..?? It is a BIN file. Also, where will I find the application in my folders/netbook?

This same issue happens when I go to my Google Apps mail. It tells me I'm using an unsupported version of Firefox. But I'm using the latest version.

A couple of days ago, my computer (mac OS X 10.4.11 PPC) suddenly seemed to stop recognizing that I had flash installed and wouldn't play anything requiring flash - instead a message came telling me to install it.

I uninstalled flash and the installed the latest version for my computer from the adobe website (which is 10.1.102.64).

Computer still thinks flash isn't installed and when I checked plugins I discovered firefox has blocked it telling me the version of flash I want to use is too old (even though the version I've downloaded is the latest I can use with my computer).

How can I enable the plugin on firefox so I can use flash? The 'enable' button on the plugin has been greyed out so I can't press it.

Please help - I'm rubbish with computers so please give any advice in very simple language! ( i have firefox 3.0.4)

ieSnare is a "protection system" used by certain websites (often gambling) which installs a *.sol file (flash cookie) into a file system, supposedly indicating a fraudulent machine. This may then be read by other sites using ieSnare, who often just shut down Firefox when encountering it. It's possible to find and delete *.sol files, but they are quickly reinstalled when an ieSnare site is entered. BTW - I'm not a fraudulent operator...

Computer is a 2yrs almost. i have used my MAC after extr. beam radiation, I know thats not "ideal" for it. Safari saves my history just fine yet i prefer Firefox but i cant view anything if I need to go backwards or look it up in the bookmarks menu
