When I click on the foxfire icon, the sound of the disk is heard. This soon stops. The hourglass appears for a short time and then disappears. There are no other signs that the program is running as a process other than using Windows TaskManager and looking in the process list. When this happen, I delete foxfire as a process and then restart it as I normally do. This usually works in getting it started.

Downloads - I want to open some PDFs/other file types from the internet but not have to save them. I can't figure out how to view them and close them without having to save them first. When I click on a file, the downloads box opens and depending on the setting, it auto saves the file or asks me where to save the file. What if I don't want to save it anywhere, I just want to view it and close it?

I currently have version 3.0.10 and have gotten two prompts to upgrade my version of firefox and each time I do install the new version and then try to start up Firefox, I get a page instead that says proxy server is refusing connections and the only way to browse is to re-install the old version. I also have to re-install the old version at least 3 times before I can use Personas.
