I have reverted to 3.5 because the latest versions of FF include some nonsense called plugin-container. FF was brilliant prior to the plugin-container but now it is noticeably slower.

Are there any early versions of 3.6 without the plugin-container available for download.

Can someone fix the plugin-container nonsense. FF was perfect prior to the plugin-container

why did you start using plugin-container.exe. It is constantly causing crashes on my computer proven by when I install firefox 3.6.4 or .5 or .6. the program also frequently uses 3.5 gigs of memory. When I remove firefox and install an older version that doesn't use it I have lots of memory left and no crashes.

I was happy with the old version of Firefox I was using, but I wanted to install an addon that required a later version, so I "upgraded". Prior to the upgrade I has white text on a black background set as my default. After the upgrade those settings were maintained, *except* in most web text-input boxes (such as the text-box on teh Google main screen). These boxes either became reverse colored (e.g. black text on white background), or even worse, bleck text on black background, so the text is invisible. (This happens on secondary Google search pages.) Very annoying and not very useful.

Also, buttons like the Google search and "I'm feeling lucky" buttons are showing up blank, as does the "submit" button on THIS page. And on some sites "captcha" boxes are invisible, making it impossible to register or login at those sites.

How do I fix this?

I've seen a number of suggested fixed for similar problems, ranging from editing the userChrome.css file to using "Stylish" to install overlays. None of these fix the problem. They either don't work at all, or they are overkill, changing a whole bunck of -other- things that I -don't- want changed. Also, they all seem overly complex for a problem that SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE. An upgrade that trashes my installed settings isn't an "upgrade", it;s a downgrade.

I just updated to firefox 3.6.8 this morning after getting prompted to update as I started firefox. The firefox update successfully installed page said that I should update to the latest adobe flashplayer, so I did that as well, although that installation failed for whatever reason. I figured that I would update it later. I started watching live streaming videos on a website, and it was working for awhile, but firefox started to not respond. I tried opening up task manager, but even that started to lag and took minutes to open. The problem seemed resolved for awhile, but firefox started to not respond off and on, task manager stopped responding completely, explorer crashed, and my computer blue screened. It wouldn't even get off the blue screen after minutes of waiting, so I shut my laptop down manually. I'm positive that this couldn't have been a virus, since I only visited my usual websites, and I have both adblock plus and noscript installed. As for my laptop now, it won't boot to windows vista. I tried the hard drive test and failed. Now my laptop isn't even able to turn off no matter how long I hold down the power button. It's not an old laptop, so I doubt that it was just time for it to die.

I have always been a fan of firefox, but this is just horrible. I don't know if it was firefox's fault but it sure seems like it...

I'm currently on my older laptop, since my other one is obviously dead now. My broken one had vista installed and again, firefox 3.6.8 version.

Before installing the Firefox v3.6, my quicktime plugin was working. After I installed v3.6, the quicktime plugin didn't work. I tried to uninstall v3.6 and installed back v3.5, but the quicktime plugin is still not working. How can I make it work again or how to fix this? Thanks.

Is there a way to undo the installation of Firefox v3.6, meaning to remove any traces of Firefox 3.6 installation, because this problem only came after I installed Firefox 3.6.

I'm able to play streaming videos from websites (e.g. http://www.singingsuccess.tv/videos/?vid=251) BEFORE I installed v3.6. AFTER installing v3.6, the streaming video now shows a blue Q with a question mark in the center. I tried to uninstall that version and install back v3.5, but the problem still exist.

Thank you and hoping for your prompt reply. More power.

I would love to get this sorted out, I really like FF. I've tried to get answers in the past and have done what was suggested but nothing worked

Immediately after I did I put a copy of places.sqlite from my profile in a safe place. places.sqlite seems to have thousands of urls in it. I am running 3.5.9 on FC11 (yeah I know I should upgrade but can't at the moment). Therefore I don't have "Help > Troubleshooting Information" available to me. Is there anything I can do (like upgrade to 3.6) to get the tabs back or are they gone forever?

Thanks for any help.

I've tried installing flash player a dozen times, with both the instructions on the adobe page and the mozilla page. I'm running Fedora Core 11 with Mozilla 3.5.9. I've gotten "libflashplayer.so" and copied it to every "mozilla/plugins" directory on the drive. It does not work and is not listed when I bring up "tools/add-ons." One instruction said to copy "flashplayer.xpt" to the "mozilla/commponents" directory, but the download included no such file and I have no such directory. (Probably pertains to an older version.) I've tried downloading it with the .tar, .gzip, and yum; all with the same result. It doesn't work online and doesn't show up in my plug-ins.

Every time Firefox opened

Every time I have tried a version of Firefox 3.6.x, the menu bars shrink to about half of their height. The printing on web pages becomes very tiny. Font sizes that were controlled by the Windows font size chosen in display preferences are no longer being used. I am legally blind and require larger font sizes on menu bars and web pages. I am using "No-Squint" and that works fine for web pages but does nothing for the menu bars. When I upgrade from version 3.5.9 to any version of 3.6.x, I have to readjust all of my No-Squint settings. When I switch back to version 3.5.9, my menu bars, fonts and No-Squint settings are returned to where they were. I would like to keep up with the version upgrades, but feel that control of the viewing has been hijacked. Please return control of the browsers settings to the user.
