I've just downloaded the update. The directions say that once the file has downloaded, I will be prompted to drag the firefox icon into the apps folder. I'm not receiving the prompt to do this, even though the download is complete. What now? Thanks.

I'm installing the update 4.0.1. After dragging the firefox icon into the image of the apps folder and being asked if I want to continue--because the old one will be overwritten, I'm guessing,--I say yes and am then unable to complete this mission because of a lack of some permissions. How can I give myself the permission I need in order to complete this urgent update? Thanks, Mary

I'm using the latest version of Firefox Sync to synchronise my bookmarks and preferences across three computers. But there doesn't seem to be an option to keep my add-ons/extensions synchronised so that if I install a new one on machine X it automagically gets installed on machines Y and Z. When will you be adding this feature?

The developers at my company need to know the frequency in which Mozilla stops supporting a browser version. What does ending support mean to Mozilla? Does Mozilla end support of a browser after a new full version is release?

Is there a Web page that shows browser versions that are supported and no longer supported?

I upgraded my work laptop. For security reasons, I uninstalled FF on old laptop. Now, while setting up FF Sync on new laptop, it asked me for account information.

As I setup account months ago, I don't remember anything. I tried resetting my password, but the Username/Password comobo is not matching. I tried looking for an option to have my Username sent to registered email address, but that does not seem to be an option (wierd?).

I am stuck. Is there a way out of this sanctum ?

Thanks for any lead.

I cannot update my Firefox 3.5.2! The "Check for Updates" option under "Help" is greyed out, even though I am an administrator on my computer. My preferences are set to automatically notify me of updates, but no matter how many times I restart Firefox or my computer, it never brings up a window telling me I have updates available. I would really rather update this version that have to install the whole thing over again which is a huge pain. What can I do??

Every time i go on newer games like Angry Birds or Farkle ( On Facebook ) It tells me that I'm running an old version of Firefox. (Works fine when I go on google chrome, but I don't like chrome.) Then when I go to update my Firefox, I see that it's the same version that I'm using right now. Getting quite annoyed with this. :/ Ps; I'm on mac. So the version I have now is 8.0.1

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

Hi there, I have one question about firefox popup menus. At some site I'm clicking a link, and popup window appears. This is good because the site does notify that to work properly popup windows must be allowed in firefox. So the window appears, but with wrong chars coding, so I want to change it accessing View->Text Coding, but the problem is that the popup window doesn't contain any menu bar at all, it also has'nt any tool bar... the only thing that is showed in this window - the text, that the page contains. So how do I can make that popup window look normal (I mean it has to show menu bar, tool bar, and all other elements of firefox window) so I can change the text coding?
