Is there anyway to disable the 'PluginCheck' website on firefox? It automatically opens up every time I open firefox. My home page also opens up as a separate tab so it's not the fact that my home page was changed (I also made sure in the settings). All my plugins are up to date so it's not that as well. It's extremely annoying. Help would greatly be appreciated.

Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have tried all options under tools options advanced update and NONE of them disable automatic updates. Whichever one is selected, at some point Firefox will upgrade without getting user approval, which is complete and utter crap.

I have to maintain an application which must run on Firefox version 3.6, cannot be ported to any later version, and is only used to access the control application.

I'm sick and tired of having to uninstall and reinstall Firefox every time it goes in direct violation of my settings and updates itself automatically. Why even have a setting for this if hte setting is completely ineffectual?

Starting in the last day or two, every time I start Firefox, in addition to my homepage, I get a nuisance tab that is checking my plugins. I need to disable this stupid function or I will have to discontinue using Mozilla Firefox after 20 years as a faithful Mozilla user. I am happy with, and have no intentions of upgrading, my version of Firefox (3.6.17). I also have no intentions of upgrading my Flash plugin as newer versions are incompatible with an online activity in which I engage.

I have followed instructions in the user forum for changing the status of plugins.update.notifyUser from true to false in "about:config", but it apparently resets itself to true. None of the user forum suggestions correct this problem. If this unwanted, stupid tab cannot be disabled, I guess I will have to abandon Mozilla, both for Firefox and Thunderbird, and pursue options that do not force unwanted content on the user.

In addition, it seems impossible to actually speak to anyone at Mozilla about the problem. So hopefully someone will answer this question with a solution to the problem.

Hello,

I have the latest version of firefox 3.6.17 and absolutely not intention of changing to 4.0 as the "features" are too much and NOT very user-friendly for my use of a internet-browser.

I have however this problem.

Which ever way, I try to set this browsewithcaret, I works only one way; ALWAYS. I have this "feature", but I don't like it at all.

Could you please fix this?

How do I turn off the Firefox update popup window? I am not going to upgrade from 3.6.17 I liked the way Firefox was configured up till now. I tried the new upgrade and I didn't like the changed toolbars, The toolbars are reversed in the newer version, and frankly don't make any sense. There are other features too which are totally annoying. If I can' turn off that pop up up grade window I am going to get rid of Firefox and use a different browser like Safari, which I don't like as much as Firefox but it is more simple so probably better.

I was running Firefox 3 on my system (do not remember which specific version now), and due to all the nags about that version being out of date, I decided it was finally time to upgrade. I installed v25, and suddenly found I could not load web pages. I tried all the support documents I could find, but none of them helped. I installed v24 instead, but same issue.

I removed Firefox and installed using 3.6.17, which I had downloaded previously just in case of problems with the upgrade, and Firefox works again. I have not tried any versions in between yet, so I do not know which version these issues start with, but I know it is tied to 24 and 25 at least.

I've installed Firefox 4 on my laptop but not on my PC because of 2 problems:- 1) Firefox 3 would always ask me if I wanted to retain the open tabs which I almost always do. Firefox 4 no longer offers this option and closes all tabs. Why?

2) Firefox 4 closes all float ins without either asking or notifying me. This not only makes my life more complicated it also prevents my customers downloading freebe offers because they are totally unaware of them. Why are you playing "Big Brother" and deciding for us what we can see online?

My Firefox preferences are set for it to open to a blank page. But sometimes (not all the time) it opens to a Google search page. What's worse: I may be in the middle of typing something into the Google search window in the toolbar, but half of what I'm typing ends up in the search window in the Google page. Unlike just about all of the users I have seen in the forums, I would like NOT to go to the Google page, but rather just open to a blank page. How can I do so?

I would like to be able to break a download connection without losing what I have downloaded so far.

At the moment to achieve this I pause the download, move the files, then cancel the download. This is messy and has caused me to make mistakes in the past.

thanks for any suggestions.
