I received a notification of a Firefox update. I clicked "restart Firefox" and the following message came -- you're running Firefox 3.5.11and for security reasons we recommend downloading the latest & greatest version. I assumed 3.5.11 is the latest version. Since I'm running it, what am I being asked to download?

Some music (sounds like from a slot machine) plays every time I startup Firefox. I've reinstalled the application, and replaced both the Firefox folder from the user's library Application Support folder and the org.mozilla.firefox.plist from the user's library preferences folder, using back ups from Time Machine. Still getting the music. Are there additional Firefox files I should try replcing? TIA for info...

Firefox is loading some web pages using jargon or some random language (not a real spoken language, rather a fake jargon language)... sites affected so far are cnn.com, chicagotribune.com, google.com... but sites like craigslist.org are OK. All sites are able to be loaded properly using Safari.

I uninstalled my current Firefox, reinstalled it again from the firefox download site, and the same thing is happening.

The help article I read indicated this:

>Autocomplete does not work on certain forms

>If you find that Firefox will save form entries for forms on only some websites, but not on others, the site might be telling Firefox to not save form history. This is especially common on email and banking websites.

But I want to save information for some of those sites. How do I manually enter the information, so that Firefox will fill it in when I navigate there? Is it possible?

Hello,

After restarting Firefox (3.6.9) on OSX 10.6.4 I am no longer able to use cmd+{ or cmd+} to jump to the previous or next tabs in the window. Instead it jumps two tabs back or forward.

Also, the menu items in the Window menu no longer list the actions to navigate to the previous or next tabs/windows like it used to, it now only lists Zoom and Minimise.

Edit: Also just noticed that cmd-left and cmd-right can no longer be used to go back and forward on a page.

The most recent addons installed at the time were Favicon Picker 3 and the updated Flash plugin. These were not installed at the same time and I only noticed the issue after restarting Firefox after I updated the Flash plugin.

Since updating to 3.6.1 I don’t get an empty browser window in my tool bar whe. it opens --- just a list of search engines. I can’t find anything in “Help” or the FAQ’s that seem to address this. My only choice seems to go back to Safari.

I am having real problems with FF3.6.6 not showing some text fields on a page. I run Windows XP with 3.6.6, Mac with 3.6.6, and a virtual machine running 3.6.6+ (along with 2 IEs, Chrome, Safari, Opera) but it is fine for me but more and more people are saying the fields aren't there. The fields are in the address section of a registration form which has been used for years. Can anyone take a look to see if they can see all the fields here, or why the fields might not show in certain cases. I am not trying to spam you to look at the page, this is legitimate.

Thanks a lot

Now I get AltaVista Google Search Results.

I want to change this preference back, so that it goes to standard google search results again.

Anyone any idea how to do this ?

It happened when i installed AltaVista Toolbar, I have removed AltaVista toolbar, and the problem is still there. Also reinstalled FF, and still there. HELLLLLP !
