Firefox announces a new update is available and then goes ahead and installs it. Example: 4.01 installed and has turned off my AVG safe search add-on. It also has made it impossible to use system restore.

How do I 1. Make it impossible for Firefox to update without my permission? and 2. how do I go back to an earlier version of firefox?

I am using FF 4.0.1 and have been a FF user since the earliest version released - never really had any issues UNTIL FF 4.0.1.

Every time I start up FF now, I get the error message: "The proxy server is refusing connections". I am not using a proxy server.

I have to go to Tools>Options>Connection Settings to select the "No Proxy" option EVERY TIME I start up FF. It does not remember this setting and keep resetting itself to think I'm using a proxy server. This must a be bug and I've seen many others post about this issue but haven't really found a workable solution as yet.

I have tested with Chrome and Explorer and don't have this problem with those browsers.

If there is a fix for this incredibly annoying, time-wasting problem, please share it.

Thanks

See, so far I understand that there will be no customisable hotkey feature for Firefox.

But couldn't you just add a hotkey for the 'home' button? Ctrl+Space for example. Then one could easily jump to e.g. his/her favourite search engine.

Firefox won't display certain things. For example, the box around this text, the options above (bold, italic, inset a link - I can see what they are only by moving the mouse pointer in the approximate area and reading the little text that comes up). Other things it won't display - the word 'Google' when I open the search engine page, icons in eBay. On eBay, when I sign in, the words 'sign in' appear as 2 different fonts superimposed on one another, both in black. In IE, it appears as white text on a blue background, and is quite readable. Now that this description has reached the length where the scroll box is needed, the scroll box has appeared, but there is still no box around the text. Below, there is a box where a drop-down menu is required ("This Happened") but not for "This Started When" or "Troubleshooting Information". I know where to put the cursor to find these areas because it turns to an I bar when I'm in the right area. The really funny thing is: It only behaves this way on my logon - my wife's works fine! (Work that one out!) It started this when I was running version 3.8.5 (I think it was). I downloaded version 4 hoping it would fix the problem,but it didn't. I have uninstalled & reinstalled it, but the problem is still there. I've had it for several months now (I think - at least 2 months) so the computer has been off and restarted many times, with no effect.

I cannot login to LinkedIn with Firefox but there is no such problem with IE8. The trouble started about 2 months ago when I had version 3.6.15 and continues with the present version 4.0.1. I have been in correspondence with LinkedIn ever since but nothing they suggest works. I like Firefox and it is my default browser, so it is annoying to have to use IE8 just for this task. I would therefore very much appreciate any solutions that anyone can offer.

...(ironically it was a new version of firefox) in Firefox v4 Windows XP proffessional. Also i have already tried safe mode and have admin privilages, it always says cannot delete because another program is using it, even when no programs (including firefox) are open. redownloading doesn't work either, because it is automatically renamed. Also i have cleared all temporary files and registry errors from my system using CCleaner, still no go.
