For the past few days I have had an 'Important update' message from Mozilla popping up on my PC. When I finally actioned it today, it installed an older version of Firefox (3.0.19) than that already on my PC!!! The final part of the install opened Firefox on a 'security warning' page instructing me that I was now using an outdated version and to install v3.6.8 instead. I verified by using a different route to the official Mozilla site that 3.6.8 was indeed the latest version and I'm almost certain that I had been using it before the 'update' to v3.0.19, and have now reinstalled it. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a security breach or what?

Two sites, one is my bank web access site. I enter my bank card number and password and hit DONE and nothing happens as though the button has been disabled. This also happened on this computer with ABE BOOKS and it wouldn't allow me to complete a transaction. I can access my bank through Firefox on a different computer. I've tried upgrading Firefox and several reboots and accessing the bank site through a different route by googling it rather than my bookmark.

I've been getting pop-up windows from anti-malware and registry cleaner software websites, selling their product. After these pop-ups, I begin having problems with my computer. Some of the problems I've had are: "lost" my optical drive (fixed since then), my Optimize 3 program will no longer work, IE cannot connect to the internet. I've done a Restore and other fixes. It works for a while until another pop-up appears.

This has happened twice in the past week. When I create a new folder nested inside two other existing folders, another folder in another branch is renamed to the newly-created folder's name. The folder that is being renamed is inside the Links folder. (I am not expecting an answer. I cannot find another place where I can report an issue with the browser.)

Sometimes when I open a FireFox window the only part of the window that will respond to my mouse or keyboard is the "X" in the upper right to close the window. The page will be fully loaded but I still can't type in the field that it defaults to (my homepage is Gmail so it's the user name field) I have to close the window and open a new one to get any response. Sometimes I have to repeat this two or three times. Does anyone know how to keep this from happening at all?

I recently updated from Firefox 3.6.3 to 3.6.8. I skipped previous updates because of similar problem I'm experiencing now however now it is worse. Immediately after installation, messages windows pop up. The FIRST window says: “Firefox has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.”

The SECOND window (with a red circle surround a white ‘X’) says: “firefox.exe – Unable to Locate Component. This application has failed to start because xul.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”

The THIRD window is called the “Mozilla Crash Reporter. We’re Sorry. Firefox has a problem and crashed…” where it gives me the option of submitting a report and restarting (which I have done).

The problem happened during previous attempted updates which is why I tend to avoid Firefox updates until today. However, in the past all I would do is manually power off the computer and restart the computer. Firefox never completed the installation so I was able to use the older version of Firefox.

Now I cannot do that because Firefox is updated to 3.6.8 which refuses to open. How can this problem get fixed? I am not “tech savvy” but loyal to Firefox (and for now I have no access to all my bookmarks).

Thank you.

Suddenly in the last few days, I can no longer view images on a stock photography site where I sell content. I can view the thumbnails of my and others' images, but when I click to enlarge, I get only a white box the size the image would be. I can also no longer view images posted in the forums. I've logged out and back in, cleared cookies, run CCleaner, rebooted, updated Java, and nothing helps. I can view the content if I log on with a different browser so this is a Firefox issue.
