When I click on a link received by email to complete registration and activate my membership to a Harley forum, I get "404 NOT FOUND" Not Found

The requested URL /register.php was not found on this server. Any ideas what might account for my inability to reach this site? This sort of thing doesn't happen often. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Paul (debreeze)

Accessing websites from history has stopped working (Firefox 3.0.5). Typing in URL seems to not work either. Bookmarks to same websites work OK. What's going on? I know I could upgrade, but I don't really want to.

I don't know how much more I can add. The response from attempting to access several frequently accessed websites is now "Done". I know the URLs are correct and the webs… (read more)

I don't know how much more I can add. The response from attempting to access several frequently accessed websites is now "Done". I know the URLs are correct and the websites are available, because they work in Explorer. I have re-booted a couple times. Again, clicking on bookmarks to the same websites (when available) works fine. Toshiba laptop running Vista.

Firefox seems to be randomly crashing with no regard to what page I view. It can be anything from a Google results page to a page with multimedia playing. Every time, I get the same crash report, but I don't know how to fix the problem. To my knowledge, I have removed all unnecessary plug-ins and add-ons.

Firefox has also been running unusually slow and often freezes on web pages for several minutes. I have FF set to clear all my browsing data when I close it.

Regardless of which version of FF I have installed (I have tested many) you folks keep opening 4 extra ports going around my firewall and around my proxy. This is a serious security and privacy breach.

Also, even though I have all sharing and updates turned off (so as to not destroy my machine) you have updated some dlls without my permission.

Open source is supposed to be more trustworthy. We would have expected something like this from MS but not you.

I am secretary of a semi formal group and need to send e-mails to all members every month - minutes of previous meetings, notices of up-coming meetings etc. I want to be able to click on a "group" and send the e-mail to them all without selecting each individual from my long list of contacts - and then accidentally missing one or two as happened recently. How can I organise my contacts into "groups" with some contacts in more than one "group" to make this work easier and more accurate?

RoboForm evidently does not get the required info back from the site that I'm trying to login into. I get a message saying there are no entries to be made. There is no problem when IE (Internet Explorer) is the browser. I thought I'd like to switch to Firefox but I use RoboForm for almost every login I do.
