Currently running firefox 3.0.4. I downloaded 3.6.28 successfully. When I tried to install it by sliding the firefox icon over onto the applications icon I got a message saying an item named firefox already exists and do I want to replace it with the newer one I am moving. I clicked "replace." Then I get a message saying that the operation cannot be completed because I do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items. How can I complete this install?

When I installed the Firefox update for my Eee PC 900 Netbook it worked fine until a couple weeks ago when lots of problems started. First, Firefox wouldn't let me open up two windows without Firefox crashing. Also, the bookmarks is not working and so is the screen capture.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I installed the firefox update

when I go to a website that has a product and click on view larger image, the image is so big that the close or go back button is off the screen. I can't move the image or scroll, as these seem to be disabled. There is no way to go back to the product description.

Is there a way to close the window or resize the picture in Firefox so that I can continue browsing?
