You are screwed up you can't ask a question until youve downloaded the lastest version I'M ON THE LAST VERSION ******* 5. is slower than 3.6.19 false advertising I get better speed with the old version, what's up with that?

I've already gone through this once but, just so I have my opinion voiced.I have used firefox all the way back to the first firefox and I don't understand why you have to make better when you usually make worse.Didn't you learn anything from vista? worst piece of crap Microsoft has ever made besides ME. I like 3.6.19 better than 5. because it works and it's faster! I can see it with my own two eyes.Then you say your going to discontinue updates after Aug, I know your in competition with other browser's out there but, I like my old version unless you can get rid of the bugs that are in 5.,my problem is it's to slow of a response when I'm responding to questions on forums and I don't like it. It's an aggrevation I don't want so I'VE DECIDED TO GO BACK TO 3.6.19 I LIKE IT BETTER! LET US KNOW WHEN YOU GET 5. FIXED

I have some sort of malware that when I use google on Firefox, I’m redirected to some generic sales site. I’ve tried Nortons, Malwarebytes, Spybot, SUPERAntiSpyware. All find Trojans and other demons, but not the one that’s causing the central problem. So far Internet Explorer is also good, but I prefer Firefox. Can you help?

Yesterday my Firefox icon disappeared from my menu bar. I went into my applications and opened it. Every time I use it to reach gmail, I get a message that I'm using an out of date version and to download a new one. I download it. An installation disk appears. A "move to applications" message appears. I move the icon to applications. I can get my e-mail, but all the bookmark icons are blank now. And each time I open gmail I get prompted again to download 8.1. something.
