Note: the "support" link does not work. The same err msg is repeated.

One site that produces that err msg is http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/ "WordPress.com - 403 Error" appears in the tab label.

Note: I can't contact the webmaster because Firefox won't let me go there.

We are way behind in updating Firefox. When we first tried to do so, long ago, the upgrade said AVG protection was incompatible and it would be disabled. We like AVG; McAffee we found intrusive and took up a lot of space. Therefore we have not made great efforts to update Firefox from a version that works with AVG. It's fine for us as it is. The experience of many users with limited expertise is that 'improvements' often aren't.

A strange bug in rendering engine

I am probably doing something wrong, but this page displays correctly in Opera 12 (Opera 11 is also fine, but it makes the last 2 checkboxes unclickable) and Chrome 21+, and it is for some reason messed up in the latest version of Firefox. I'm very dissapointed.

First I thought it is because of the column-count rule. But then I compared the results with another page without multicolumn. It's also messed up. Why?..

I'm not going to include the markup of the second page for shortness, but it is much the same - just remove some checkboxes in the left cell and remove the column-count rule optionally.

What was meant: two-cell table with outlined blocks inside of each cell. Checkboxes are contained in those outlined blocks. What's happening: the cells sit on each other directly and overlap each other.

I chose the option to get Firefox to perform better than it had been doing. (I like my escargot with garlic butter not on my laptop.) the default is to hide the toolbars - no useful option shall go unscrewed - and I can't get back to the prior version nor get the toolbar back. Would love to know how to get out of this mess please. thank you.

For example, EZDOWNLOAD does not appear to be a Mozilla product. I scanned the Terms & Conditions and failed to find it to be part of Firefox, even tho the FF emblem is present in the ad. This and other such products I encountered today seem to be aggressive and in-your-face advertising which I am suspicious of, since they allowed me no option to escape, and because I had to go thru Internet Explorer to get to Mozilla. This is all on my wife's computer for which the hard drive failed, so I have to reinstall nearly every program she needs. Back over the years I have installed FF on other computers without these complications I encountered today.

Running XP/SP 3, with FF 4.0.1. Flash v 11 is not supported, so I downloaded and installed Flash 10.3 from Adobe archive. Installation appears successful, Control Panel sees it, but it does not show up in FF. Trying to install the exe file from the plugins window does not work - I get a 'file is corrupt' message. Restarting the computer did not help. Thanks

When I click on a Web page and am through with it, I want to close it and step back to the page from whence I came. I see no navigational means to do this on Firefox. The introductory tutorial did not cover it either.

It is completely fustrating to close Firefox and start over to get to the page before. So I am sure there is a way, it is just not obvious nor covered in your tutorial.

If you add bookmarks to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder they'll show up on the Bookmarks Toolbar. "

I want to create a icon on a users desktop that launchs yahoo mail in it's own instance. (User profile I guess)

Here's the background: I volunteer with a local seniors citizens organization to provide free computer support to seniors on a limited budget. Many seniors use yahoo becuase it was what they learned to use way back when and don't want to change. It is widely known that yahoo accounts have been subject to a recent spree of hacking using exploits, some of which do not even require a user to click on a link. I have seen firsthand 5 incidents where separate individuals using separate computers have had yahoo accounts hacked.

One of my clients was an ATT customer, thus entitled to phone support. In a recent conversation with ATT support who uses yahoo for their e-mail services, they told me they are aware of the problem and the best solution is to logout of your yahoo account every time you are done using it. This is problematic for Senior Citizens who can't or won't remember passwords, they want it to just work.

I began thinking that there must be a way to protect a user from at least some of these exploits. My finial idea is to create a desktop icon that will launch an instance of Firefox that is separate from the other websites that a user may be browsing. I think this could be accomplished using user profiles and some command line options.

Any other ideas? Extensions? I'm thinking of blocking flash and java on that instance too.
