Recoveryng from a disk crash and Firefox icon in the genie bar vanished after running MAC Disk Utility and now has the "Application" (the A formed by a pen, pencil & ruler) icon instead. Will not launch. Need a version that will run Mac OS X 10.2.4. Is there page on this site to get a compatible version or some wherelse I can get one? Have very some old .dmg copies of earlier version 2.0.0.7 but can not find more recent copies or the one I was running befor the crash. I know , I know I need to update my old G4 but for economic reasons ( I do not have the $$) I can not do so now.

Firefox wants Flash - I don't want Flash - Flash notifier leaves Plugin required notice blocking screen -Firefox rendered more useless!

I run Firefox 2.0 (because I need certain features that won't run in later versions) and whenever I try to run my apps, I get a message saying that Firefox "NEEDS" to load Flash [I don't want Flash], then it says it can't do it and I have to do a "manual install" then it leaves one of the plugin notifiers on the bottom right corner of the screen, effectively blocking my app. It is a ruddy pain in the a*se. How do I stop Firefox wanting to load a piece of software that I don't want?

Hi, I am trying to move into my new IMac. Everything is good except the old G4 running 10.3.9 with Firefox/2.0.0.20 cannot export bookmarks. I could transfer them via a external hard drive if I could get them to export. The IMac 10.7.2 will not recognize the old Mac.

We were recently given an older Gateway laptop that we intend to use solely as an internet terminal. Alas, it is running Windows ME and I don't even know if it has all the specs to upgrade (and certainly not to Vista, which is the only thing we have an install disk for). It currently has Firefox 2.0.0.20, which of course contains numerous security vulnerabilities and is incompatible with most newer plugins. What is the best version of Firefox that will work with Windows ME, and is it still available for download? Thanks!

i just installed the latest version of mozilla, 8.0, and for some reason i still get messages on websties saying i'm on an outdated browser. in fact, the version of mozilla currently installed on my desktop, which says is 8.0, looks nothing like the version i have on my laptop, which is 8.0 and for websites don't have an upgrade issue.

i go to pages like youtube, myspace etc and get these 'your browser is outdated' message. i have uninstalled and reinstalled mozilla already (i did this as well when i upgraded to 7.0 a while ago, but nothing changed).

when i click 'help' on the top toolbar and go to 'about firefox' it tells me i'm on version 8.0, but there is no way the version i'm using is beyond 2.0. in fact, some of the add-ons for mozilla will not install because it doesn't see this version of mozilla as compatible with them (those that need to be 5.0 or higher).

can someone help? i'm not sure what to do here. thanks in advance.

here's an image showing the outdated browser message versus what the 'about mozilla' part states.

Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.
