After I downloaded firefox 3.o.5 because it is a 32 bit system not a 64 bit like the 5.o.o the first thing that came up on the screen was my fire fox was out of date and I needed to download the newer firefox. My question is will it needing 64 bit system and mine being a 32 bit system will it work correctly on my computer?

Hello i have to write a javascript that should be fired only when firefox close button is pressed. It should not get fired on refresh or navigation. Do we have anything in firefox that can detect only closing of browser from close button.

I'm running version 3.0.5, but didn't notice it wasn't updating until websites started complaining recently. When I try to upload manually from the website, the program downloads but will not copy into my applications folder. It says there is already an existing file, but when I click "Replace", it says I "do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items."


I've looked in to ways that Firefox should automatically update. Mine does not offer to update from the "About Firefox" screen. When I go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Update, under "Automatically check for updates to:" everything is checked, but the box for Firefox is grayed out so I can't touch it.

I don't want to uninstall and reinstall because I'm afraid to lose all my saved passwords and bookmarks.

I tried to open 25 tabs in one window using firefox 3.0.5 with windows xp. It would only let me open 10. Tabs I added after 10 were added, but tabs at the begining were erased. What do I have to do to open all the tabs that I may need without changing the firefox or windows version? Do I need to open a new browser window for every 10 tabs?

Question I am using Firefox 8.0. I have been receiving notifications on many webpages that my version of Firefox is out of date (hotmail is one example) & to please update my browser. Also, I get way too many incidents of Firefox "(not responding)". Even after disabling ALL add-ons, even the ones I consider necessary to my enjoyment of the browser. For every hour I spend on the internet 15 mins of that time is spent staring @ a black screen & waiting for it to respond again. I am finding this very frustrating & would appreciate some assistance...or a better browser.

States that I am running a version of Firefox that I am not. It says below that I am running version 3.05 but according to the "about Firefox" tab I am running version 8.0 & when I check for updates it says that Firefox is up to date.

I have tried to re-download & re-install numerous times to no avail.

I have a Macbook- I'm running OSX version 10.5.8. Previous versions of firefox have always worked fine. I downloaded the newest version of firefox, and have had all sorts of problems with it. After about 6 weeks of struggling with it, I have gone back to version 3.0.5. I know it's an earlier version, but the performance is way better. Windows and tabs open quickly, there are no loading problems on any sites, and other browsers work fine now, too. I run safari and google chrome also. I was almost at the point where I was going to pass on firefox altogether. In my opinion, the newest version is NOT STABLE and unless you fix the problems, I will not use it. This was a terrible experience and I will not try a new version right now. I'm just happy that I have a stable version of firefox again. And by the way, the older version is way faster loading pages, too.

I created a customized security symbol, as prompted by Yahoo. It is supposed to appear on the mail sign-in page when using my computer. It worked fine initially. Now, my symbol no longer displays; I can see a faint placeholder there. The program still "remembers" my username choices. When I use Internet Explorer, my customized symbol still appears on Yahoo's mail sign-in page, so it does not appear to be a Yahoo-based problem. Do you know how to fix this (or what my next step should be rule out possible causes, etc.)?

For some reason, firefox has started displaying RAW HTML when I navigate to a web site instead of rendering it. IE and Chrome are both rendering normally. What would cause this to start happening? Sometimes, pressing F5 fixes the problem, sometimes not. Sometimes I'll go to the same page the next day and everything is OK.

I am using FF with a dialup connection on a Mac which is turned off every day. When I restart the Mac, FF defaults to "offline mode." I want FF to automatically connect to the internet every time the Mac is turned on. Currently, FF defaults to "offline mode" and I must manually uncheck the offline mode every time.

I found this reply (https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/772672?s=default+online+mode&r=15&as=s) but it does not help me in any way.

When I use IE, Safari, or NS, I am always automatically connected when I turn the computers on. I want the same behavior in FF.
