I currently use Firefox 30.1.15.

I want to upgrade it to the latest Firefox, 3.6.

If I do that, will the upgrade wipe all the bookmarks I've set up on 30.1.15? I have many bookmarks and don't want to set them all up again.

Thank you for your help in advance.

All my plugins are up to date. When I go to Mozilla's home page a fuzzy monster tells me, "Hey there! Looks like you’re using an old version of Firefox." Many websites tell me they do not support my old version. Programs and Features lists me as having 5.0.1 installed also and there is not a second instance of firefox installed.

How do I restrict number of downloads at a single time in the download window? I want to restrict the number of downloads at a time. Other downloads should be in a queue. For example, if I restrict as 5 downloads are available at a time, the 6th download should be in a queue and should start any one of the download is completed. And the next download should resume ... and so on. So at any point of time only 5 (or it should be specified) downloads should be possible. Is there any settings can be done in FireFox for this? Please help.

Recently I received a pop-up from "Firefox" telling me I urgently needed to update my browser. Even though I thought this was strange, I did it, and ever since I have been getting pop-ups when I start up my computer and randomly while browsing. This same message just popped up again from this address:

http://softocheck.org/update?get=bcbd82d0eeef5d229c2163d54195228d

Is there a way to fix this? I've tried going to my control panel and deleting unfamiliar programs. Twice I've had to delete something from an unknown source titles "dofus" (go figure..). At the very least I thought it should be brought to Mozilla's attention.

When I go to History in the Tool Bar I can go to Show All History and delete what is there, but even after deleted, if I click on Recently Closed Tabs, some websites visited will still be there, and I don't necessarily what anyone else tha might be using my desktop or laptop to view them. It's a privacy issue, don't you know. I have tried for three days noe and haven't found a way to get rid of them even if I delete all cookies.
