I'm not very tech savy so plain English please. I have a Dell Studio desktop with Intel 2 Quad Processer. I used IE for 15+ years. Started using Google Chrome for speed and better security about 6 months ago with no issues. Shortly after the first of the year Chrome starting crashing daily and as of 1/14 it was crashing 10-12 times a day. I don't like loosing stuff and having to stop, re-load or re-start or re-store which Chrome was doing more that it was working correctly.

Will Firefox work within my OS System. I've ready about your safety, password protection and the other things that are touted on your website about Firefox, but I'm mainly concerned about the crashes and what causes them. Is the problem within my own system and not the brower issues?

I simply want to surf, read, watch you tube, facebook with friends and family. I'm 65 and retired and I'm really disguested with all the problems I'm having.

I think Firefox is a good product, but I need answers to the questions I have raised.

Hope to hear from someone very soon regarding the issues I have rasied. If I download Firefox, do I need to un-install IE. I have already un=installed Chrome.

Thanks, Jim Yeary jyeary3 @ Spring TX

Hello,

Just updated to FireFox 20.0. Ctrl+F no longer shows the total found. This feature otherwise works. I did do a Reset to see if that will help. Now am putting Addons back. Worked fine in prior version (19). Use browser for research so numer is important.

So far I like the new version. Should I go back to 19? How? Using current version of Java and Flash player. Windows 8. Let me know how I can help.

Thanks for your time.

I see on others' computers that they have an orange window that says firefox in the upper left hand corner but mine doesn't. And when I checked to see what version I am running, it said 18.0, yet I see questions only to version 4 and 5? I am not computer savvy so if I do have a fake version, will it be hard for me to fix? And if this is a fake version, how do I know that this is not going to the 'fake' company for support? When I try to search for something from the start page, in the center of the screen, it will not search. I have seen 2 different solutions regarding 'safe-mode' and default back to the beginning, but they both seem a little scary and I am uneasy trying either one. Is there any way you can help me get this figured out? I just got this laptop for Christmas and I am already having this problem with firefox. I play farmville on facebook everyday and my son says that is the reason I am messing up the laptop. Please help me fix this. This is my first laptop and I do not want to screw it up right away. I appreciate your assistance in this matter. Lisa

The listed question is self-explanatory. I like Firefox - which is faster than IE-whatever, but I DO NOT like receiving "upgrades" which will limit or preclude my anti-virus and anti-spyware applications. Why can't you resolve the "plug-in" issues BEFORE "upgrading."

And, furthermore, whence your geniuses? I've tried, twice, without success, to create an account, and each time, you report that my password isn't valid. Well, my passwords [two different tries] WERE valid - I double-checked them. Wha's'amattah you?
