When I try to open websites, it switches to sites like "c.vindicosuite.com" or "b18.sitemeter.com", then stops. How do I stop this happening ?

This has been happening for some time on our own website - the site text loads, as does the first pic - but halfway through the second (always at that point), the screen goes blank, and the info bar says it is transferring to, or waiting for, either of these two sites above, but never the bars never get more than halfway. It makes no difference whether I try to load the website from scratch or from our bookmarks menu.

It's now started again, on the John Lewis site, when I try to move from a product to the product details. I've checked for Firefox updates for Mac OS X, but apparently none are available, even though I get notes that I'm using an outdated version.

Why did my old computer all of a sudden update to version 2.0.0.20, when for years this update was available and it did not update when it was relevant?

I use the old computer for one purpose and only go to my bank site... This unexpected update makes me nervous. Once it had updated Firefox told me that my system was out of date ( which I know) and that firefox would not work.... yet it does work... What is going on ? I had no problems before the update.

I can bring my Macbook Pro running Firefox 22.0 on Snow Leopard to your offices on Castro Street. That would be the fastest way to demonstrate the "crash" that consistently occurs. I've been a Systems Programmer at Stanford for over 41 years, and I've written code for which I've received Copyright protection. NOTE: I'm sending this from another computer running Firefox 3.6.28, which is NOT the version that's crashing.

Not to be whiney, but 2-3 times a year, these FF updates make everything go haywire. I don't have the patience to go through every issue and find solutions for them all right now. I just want to go back to a working version, the version I had immediately before 24. But I don't know which version that was. I deleted FF and installed 3.6.28, but it has even more issues. Is there a place to find the versions I've used, or if anyone has similar problems and knows which previous version worked perfectly, can you please let me know which it was? Yes, I'm still using XP and yes I know I should update it. I'm getting a new computer for Christmas and won't need to "fix" all these things, so just want to continue with what I had for the remaining 2 months.

The issues I'm talking about is that my bookmark toolbar barely functions. My link to email does not work, I've lost the icons for half my bookmarks...

Please, what was the last good version?

Thanks

Several websites I use now say my version of Firefox not compatible to use on their website. When I check for updates, I'm told none are available. Here is how I'm set up:

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.2.28) Gecko/20120306 Firefox/3.6.28

OSX 10.5.8

I know the PowerPC processor may be an issue but replacing computer to fix browser issue is not an option. Hope you can help.

This happens with both versions of Firefox 3.6.28 and 22. (I have removed the latest version because I had so much trouble with it and no, I don't want it back and I am fully aware of the dangers the old versions put me in, thank you!) I have tried to delete the things from the extension folder, but the items it is asking to install aren't in there. I am using XP with SP3.

I log into my Gmail using a nav button on FIrefox entitled 'Google Mail - Inbox'. Whether it appeared there automatically or I put it there, it has worked fine. Today, it doesn't, I instead get an odd Google menu which shows only the text of (what I assume is) my Google account. Can one attach a file with a screenshot here, can't see any attachment facility? They say it may be caused by a broken or slow browser connection, but then Google do tend to clutch at straws. I need to work out whether the problem is Google, Firefox or both.

Can't open the 'Troubleshooting info' box below. I am on a Mac PPC G5 on Firefox 3.6.28, which Firefox keeps threatening to pull but hasn't done so yet.

Dont laugh, but yes I have firefox 3.6.28 with windows xp and sp 2. and just recently this stupid plugin check keeps popping up every time i open my firefox. My version 3.6 was fine until today. and nothing on my end has changed with my knowledge.

Yes i know most would tell me to update my firefox to correct it, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO UPDATE. if i wanted a newer version i would download it.

Personally I hate the new versions of firefox, and have no use for them. and do not want to update to something I DON'T WANT. I choose to keep my old firefox, I do not want to update it every time mozilla feels like changing or adding some stupid feature i do not use, need or want. leave versions alone for petes sake mozilla

With that said how can i permanently stop that stupid checker ?

Hi! I've readed many topics about this, but nothing helped. Last solution I've found on this site is about the "No Proxy" setting, but that didn't help too. I have no problems at all with FF 3.6, and I'm still using it most of the times, but I can't keep doing this for much longer, and some sites already won't work with it. I didn't like FF 4\5 so I've never used them "online", but since I've started trying out newer version, I've always had this problem (FF 12+, up to 21.0). 3.6 never had such problem, I can open 20 bookmarks from the same site at once and it does it flawlessly. I use Windows XP and Sandboxie, and I install FF directly into the sandbox. Tried disabling or not installing any plugin at all, nothing changes. Tried installing it over the working 3.6, tried with clean installs and with the reset function. Sometimes it loads pages without any prolem, but most of the times it takes ages and it's stuck at the blank page with the spinning weel for 30+ seconds. Sometimes, if i open two new tabs from te same site within a second, one of them loads, the other doesn't. Sorry for the long post and for my bad English. Thank you! :)
