I asked before and got no answer so I am trying again. This occurs with any version i have downloaded above ver. 14.1. Every time i start up Firefox before the browser window opens there is a popup box that says it is checking the compatibility of my addons. I am not a fan of tabbed browsing so i use multiple windows. Any time I open Firefox the compatibility checker runs. I can not figure out how to prevent this from running. I am able to keep it off my system as long as I do not upgrade above version 14.1. The result is I have had to set Updates to never check to avoidbeing bombarded multiple times a day by Mozilla with the message that updates/upgrades for Firefox are available.

I have tried everything I can think of to download a higher version and not to have this feature, including doing custom installs and unchecking the maint. service box. But no matter what I have tried the popup addon checker is still there. Since I do not allow any programs or sites to update automatically, except for security software, I am not willing to update beyond 14.1 until I can prevent the addon checker from running without permission.

Is there any way to disable this function in versions above 14.1?

My bookmarks keep going into that unsorted bookmarks folder, where they are not easily accessed. I watched the getting started video several times, and I want to save bookmarks without sorting them. The tabs thing is too complicated right now. I just want a bookmarks folder that will save what I put into it. But if I click on the star in the awesome bar, the link goes right into that nasty unsorted bookmarks folder.

I'm unable to resolve this after 2 hours of trying solutions on the web. I have tried going to about:config and changing the keyword to the google address url, and it is the google url, but still my default engine is search-results.com. (Why this has to be so difficult in Firefox is beyond me). I have run multiple anti-virus and anti-spyware programs and nothing is detected. I'm now officially giving up on this cr*ppy browser. I know it's free software and maybe I shouldn't complain, but Firefox is crashing so often (with the "cute" error message "snap!") and then there is this unsolvable problem that you can't set your default search provider that in my book Firefox is actually malware.

I'm very disappointed (and angry) by the fact that this bug has been dragged from one version to the next version for years already. Just google a bit and you will see that it is an ever going sad story.

Questions, complaints, how-to's etc... year after year, always for the same issue ! How many people have become frustrated like me ?

I'm sure not the only user to be redirected from one possible solution to another possible solution. If that does not work, try this and that... and so on. I went from one "solution" to the next, and wasted hours, just to bump into this recurring stupid message, over and over again.

So my question goes directly to the developers : Why do we (users) have to care about fixing a problem that in the first place should not even exist ? Why does this problem remains for years without cure ?

Sorry guys, it is not the responsibility of the users to try all sorts of tricks. Just fix this thing please. What is actually my problem ? Very simple answer : Firefox

I have been having trouble with some orders I have made online. The webmaster from one online store told me I should be regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. Is this accurate? I know when I do this with Safari, some banking websites want me to enter my passwords again because they say I am using a compute that has not visited this website before. As far as my problem with ordering items online and having problems with the store getting my order, I was told by the webmaster that any good computer practice includes regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. How do I do this on Firefox? I am new to using Firefox. Thanks!

Currently, opening a new tab goes to a blank search page with an annoying advertisement, and I want it to open a new tab in google.com.

I've tried for over 2 hrs to fix this, following instructions I found. Nothing has worked.

I downloaded an add-on, but it did not work.

I then used about:config and tried changing "newtab" and "keyword" but those changes did not work.

I now see that the config list has dozens and dozens of files beginning CT 2504091, and I am wondering if those should be there.

I now fear i am making things worse if I keep trying, so I am writing to you.

Alos, I am reluctant to use the "reset" option because it says "will TRY to keep bookmarks," and my wife will NOT be happy if all her banking and other bookmarks disappear upon reset.

thanks in advance for your help.

I can get Firefox to open, but other than that nothing works. It doesn't respond to type or the mouse. In fact, it acts like your keyboard or mouse are no longer working. Which they are.

It was working fine & then it just stopped.

I've tried uninstalling & re-installing. That didn't help, nor did going back to an older version. I even tried using Windows restore point & going back in time. Nothing has helped.

My OS is Vista.

Can anyone help me? Thanks.
