I have had firefox for over a year and I recently installed it on my aunts computer. When I did in the upper left hand corner there was an orange box that said firefox on it. I recently re-installed it on to my computer and it is still the same as I had before. (Just the firefox symbol) How do I get the most recent version? It does say that I have the 6.2 or whatever the most recent is. Thank you in advance for the timely response to my question.

My location bar has vanished. I also don't have a Forward or Back arrow. I tried updating but it didn't help. Anyone know where it's gone? (I've got Version 7 and Windows Vista, I think.)

I can't think of any more details, but I used to have normal Firefox with a location bar, and now I don't. At the top of my page I have "most visited" and a tab bar. At the bottom I have "secure search". I'm having to get to all URLS by searching for them.

On the Mozilla website, and the "Getting started" video the browser has a round look with a "Firefox" tab on the top. I've just installed it and it doesn't look like that at all. In fact, looks just like IE (Internet Explorer) which makes the customization very difficult.

I turn on my laptop and my Mozilla start page comes up. It tells me I am not on the latest version of Firefox so I download and run the latest version. I finish whatever I am doing and shutdown. When I restart also always it tells me the same thing - even on the same day. I check my downloads and that tells me that I have the latest version. I don't understand and find it a little bit frustrating.

    Your help would be appreciated.
