several times now after a browser update I've been advised in the update success page to immediately update the A-dopey trash player. Each time I have attempted this feat no yellow bar containing any button labeled "allow" has ever been in evidence and nothing else I've tried which seemed reasonable would enable any such upgrade. Why not quit suggesting this upgrade if the uploader at A-dopey is not compatible with the firefox browser? I really think I have enough frustration in my life, that's why I sought out an alternative to the standard Evil Empire browser.

The latest update from Firefox said I HAD to update Adobe or there would be a security problem. I replied to the answer about the edit bar, but have not received a reply: This is what I wrote: Thank you for helping me. I had no idea how to do that. Now if you can tell me about the adobe issue I would so appreciate it. I do use Firefox and I went to add/remove to see which version and could not find the Adobe 10.1.82.76 it said I had??? Then I just went back and it is there. I was told I HAD to update the Adobe because of a security issue, but when I went to add it, it said warning the program I was about to add might be dangerous????? So I have it on the down load thing, I have not told it to run, but it shows up in my add/remove folder and I am SO confused??? Do I need to run it? I went to the adobe site and found it when I could not find the "edit" button. I am not sure if I have the right version. It said certain versions would not run with Firefox and I do not want to mess up my computer. Please advise Sheila

I get a great deal of spam, but recently, I have noticed that it appears to track my recent browsing. For example, I was looking for photography classes twice in the last 3 days and today, I have spam about "dream jobs shooting picture", an email about degree programs in photography. I had been browsing the apple web site for apps for my iPad, and over the past several days, I have received emails about auctions of iPads and other apple merchandise. Seems fishy. Is there a way to block this behavior? It's intrusive. I love firefox, but I might stop using it over this issue.

This seems to have happened after I received the update to 3.6.10. I have also had a variety of updates from Microsoft lately. I also have my font set extra large in the display area of the control panel in Windows XP and the tool bars of Firefox are in the size, no change there, only in web pages and e-mail.
