I am using a mac, I am deleting some duplicate imported bookmarks and folders. FF lets me delete most bookmarks, but not select ones. Some folders can be deleted and others not.

I tried the three delete methods (toolbar, righthand click, and command delete) nothing seems to work. I tried restart FF and then the computer as well. Tried online suggestions. No luck

After downloading 3.6.13 version to my desktop, the instructions say to move icon to the Application folder, then drag the Firefox icon to the docks. When I open Firefox, it is still the old version 2.0.0.4.

How can I use the new version?

I had Firefox 3.6.something (I'm not sure). When it said I needed to update to 4.0, I just clicked ok. Now I cannot open Firefox. I removed it and looked for an older version, but all I can find is 2.0 and still cannot find a version in between the two.

I upgraded from firefox 3.6.3 to firefox 4.0. For some reason the user agent value has not changed. This causes servers out there like google/etc. to claim I am out of date. Even the firefox educated guess is *wrong*. This is very annoying.

Since I first downloaded Firefox 5 (over a week ago), it has been impossible to open the application and begin working. The display is regularly off the screen to the right. The only way I can get it working is to adjust the lower right corner of the display. Doing this causes the display to pop back to the center of the screen.

I know this is true of GMail (my home page), but it is also true of the Firefox Help page, and several others. It does not happen in other browsers.
