Please help a desparate man, smile. A computer tech, , put ubuntu on my computer and installed firefox several years ago. Now when I try to update it to the new version, it wont update. I do see a note on the firefox instructions that if linus was placed on my computer with a distribution package, I think it said, whatever a distribution package is, I have to wait for an updated version, I think it said. I dont know if the tech who installed it used a distrution package and he is gone elsewhere and I cant ask him. I am a computer imbecile so thats all I know, and I cant get to many sites now because they only take updated firefox, PS I dont see any word help to click, where is this word located if I ever need to use it? Also lately after I tried to update firefox, not before, when I try to download anything to view that thing that starts with a p, three letters, like a medical article, it wont take me there, I merely get a box saying I am trying to dowload it, maybe that is linked to me not having an updated version of firefox. Please remember in your answer, I know almost nothing about computers. Thanks a lot. .

I am among MANY people who want CHOICE in whether or not to upgrade software on THEIR machines. After following many threads about this, all the statements say upgrade, no matter what the questions actually asked. Realize the FINAL WORD about our machines is ours. WE OWN THEM, NOT THE SOFTWARE MANUFACTURERS. This makes the bottom line OUR choice. If we don't want to upgrade, it's OUR FINAL word, not the software manufacturers. This is in response to the question of getting rid of upgrade nagging. The thread has always been closed without any answer to the question as asked. Invariably, when an upgrade occurs, there are incompatibilities which are left for the user to sort out, many times taking hours to days, some not ever being fixed and therefore must be lost. This is ridiculous. The customer, end user, loses time and money they can't afford, debugging these errors, when, on the user end, nothing appeared wrong (Seldom are any of the issues described in these updates actually seen by the end user). What ever happened to the customer being right? There is the ol expression "If it ain't broken, don't fix it!" "Broken" is what is perceived broken, not what actually is broken, so you can't tell a marginally computer literate person - who OWNS the business for which you are working, that something is needed, especially when this something costs time and money, that cannot be shown or seen on the spot, overriding what they are telling you they want. The consensus is to wait "til I get this problem" then fix it. Most times they don't get the described problem for which the upgrade is intended at all. Again if it ain't broke . . . ! Many end users see all these patches and updates as just more ways to extract money, upgrading products that need to work better in their present versions, no matter how well intended the manufacturer says it is or how good the patch or upgrade is, instead of being upgraded to some new version with new problems.

My prime example of un-needed upgrades is a business that uses a 1980s DOS program to do its cash registers and bookkeeping. When the program breaks, it's easy to fix. It is so simple new employees can use it in minutes. It satisfies the IRS! When approached about the latest suite for this kind of business, the question of what the improvements were, naturally, came up. Overall there were not enough solid reasons to spend the $3000 package price, even though it was a bargain, for something that would be difficult to learn and do no more than the old DOS program. Plus when it broke or had problems, they were difficult, time consuming, and costly to fix. Their company had to be called for a fee. The old program could be fixed at any time by lots of street alcoholics who knew DOS, for a 12 pack (It is a liquor store POS program). The upgrade was seen for what it actually was, an expensive step backward.

Personally I have to keep a computer that is not connected to the internet at all - with the network card disabled - in order to stop automatic upgrades that can't easily be turned off. I run old software that works fine. In particular there is an old program (Windows 98 vintage) that works fine on XP SP1 but not SP2. Upgrading that program costs over $1000!!! What you get in the new version requires cloud backbone and won't operate at the independent desktop level period- not an improvement at all - a downgrade for a much higher price. It is the only program that does this job in this manner and the new version is unusable. It can be run in a virtual partition.

Realize too that as a technician, the final word comes from those who pay the money. From experience, it is seen that the owner has final say, no matter what the manufacturer suggests, no matter what you tell them works. Most individuals and small businesses use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. Argue with them and lose the business ($$$). No matter what the internet would like to see, the reality is what people actually do. And especially, you can't convince an end user the upgrade you installed is "better" when you have to spend hours to days getting it to work with their stuff and invariably, lose some functionality or especially, perceived, functionality. The internet has attempted to produce an atmosphere where the customer is never right. When you hit the streets, in this environment, the customer is still right - They pay the money!

What is needed are answers to these questions as asked, and not ridicule or thread closure, for having perfectly valid reasons for not wanting to upgrade.

Viva Freedom of choice!

I got a message saying I was using an old and insecure version of firefox. I was directed to click on help. I can't find help. When I clicked the free download a message said it didn't exist. Try another version. I have been having problems with viruses and would like to clean firefox or load a new version while keeping my homepage. I keep hearing firefox is known for not protecting users from viruses.

Whenever I click on a mailto: link, either nothing happens or, in some instances, a new blank tab will appear. I have Outlook set as my email client, and the program is running. Other browsers, IE and Chrome, link out to Outlook just fine, only Firefox (3.6.11) has this problem.

Firefox "knows" about a number of plugins. By what means can a plugin become known to Firefox and have automated updating?

I could understand (not like) the fact that Microsoft might not be eager to make their products any easier to use with Firefox. But, I would think that Google and Real Networks would.

I would like to know if it is possible to limit the number of tabs that can be in the tabs bar. The reason is to reduce bandwidth use by any single user on my home network. Is there a way to set a max limit (under 10) in FF? If not is there an add-in that is capable of this task?

Also can FF be set to only open one copy of the program at a time?

When I click on Firefox to open it, I will get the little "hourglass" from my cursor saying the computer is thinking (it's actually a blue circle rotating since I am using Windows 7), but Firefox never actually opens. When I hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete to open the Task manager, I have a program called "firefox.exe *32" (without quotes) running. If I have hit the Firefox button to open it a few times, then there will be several instances of Firefox open. Interestingly however, these proceses do not use much memory - they use between ~200KB and 2,000KB of memory.

I have done pretty much everything I know how to do. I have done a simple reboot, I have done every single thing listed on

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/firefox+will+not+start#Firefox_previously_worked

including creating a "new user profile", but nothing works. It's strange because this has never happened before. I vaguely recall just recently updating to 3.6.11, but this might have been awhile ago. I can VERY RARELY get Firefox to actually open when I click it (once maybe every 10 or 15 tries, and usually only RIGHT after I reboot), but this is a very annoying problem. Help :(
