Firefox told me to upgrade browser. So I downloaded Firefox Setup Stub 26.0 (4).exe. Now, when I open Firefox the message is "you need to upgrade"--still. How do I formalize the upgrade so that it is --in fact--upgraded and running once and for all? I'm running in Windows on a decade-old Dell XPS Windows XP Thanks.

We run a business using Quickbooks and the backup file is on Drop Box - We use the office computer to access the Quickbooks files as well as does our Accountant and Bookeeper.

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.

About a week ago, Firefox started going into "work offline" mode every few minutes, knocking me off my wifi each time. Then I have to go into my list and re-select my network to get back online. I don't have any trouble with my wifi if I don't have Firefox open. Any easy fixes for someone who's not super techy? Thanks.

Hi: I have a MacbookPro, OSX 10.5.8, and I use Firefox 3.5.9. I cannot upload photos to Facebook. I get a broken up "load" window, with not even the "upload" button to click, plus I can't select the photos I want to use.

I can do it perfectly, however, using Safari. Can you help? Thanks!
