Recently I received a pop-up from "Firefox" telling me I urgently needed to update my browser. Even though I thought this was strange, I did it, and ever since I have been getting pop-ups when I start up my computer and randomly while browsing. This same message just popped up again from this address:

http://softocheck.org/update?get=bcbd82d0eeef5d229c2163d54195228d

Is there a way to fix this? I've tried going to my control panel and deleting unfamiliar programs. Twice I've had to delete something from an unknown source titles "dofus" (go figure..). At the very least I thought it should be brought to Mozilla's attention.

When looking at Amazon.com in firefox, there are no images for any of the products. I can Google search and see images. I can also open Internet Explorer and see images on Amazon. Since my job includes working with Amazon and the accounts of people, I would like to find out why this is happening. Any ideas? I have tried the usual as far as clearing cookies and caches also there are no popup blocks that show.

How do I restrict number of downloads at a single time in the download window? I want to restrict the number of downloads at a time. Other downloads should be in a queue. For example, if I restrict as 5 downloads are available at a time, the 6th download should be in a queue and should start any one of the download is completed. And the next download should resume ... and so on. So at any point of time only 5 (or it should be specified) downloads should be possible. Is there any settings can be done in FireFox for this? Please help.

When i start firefox it takes forever to load, sometimes it doesnt even load up my default site, it should load up www.google.com but instead it loads www.ask.com. The reason why is because the browser isnt working correctly. When I try to view any website, or search on Google it takes forever for something to happen, and 95% of the time the whole browser almost turns completely WHITE, then at the top of the browser it says "Not Responding". I have to continue to close the browser and start a new session but it does the same thing.

I have no or extensions, nothing at all.

Whats going on? I never had problems with Firefox, what is going on?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I am installing Firefox from the Fedora YUM repositories via Kickstart. After installation, the .mozilla directory and its subdirectories do not exist. Although I have the Firefox configuration files I want to install, I don't have a place to put them. And since Firefox seems to create a .mozilla/firefox/*default directory with a random name, I can't easily just create the directory and then insert my files. Is there a way to make this fully automatic?

I have ver 3.6.13 (shows in About Mozilla Firefox at the top) though http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ reports it as 3.0.15. In "Help" --> "About Mozilla Firefox" at the bottom it shows "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.15) Gecko/2009101601 Firefox/3.0.15 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB". Why is there a difference between the version loaded and reported?

This happened even when I had the earlier 3.6.15 version loaded. I have a few add-ons installed: greasemonkey and 8 gm based scripts installed; AI Roboform; Better privacy 1.48.3; Java Console; Microsoft .Net Framework Assistant 1.2.1; Norton IPS; Norton toolbar; NoScript 2.0.8.1; Realplayer Browser Recorder plugin 1.1.3; Screengrab 0.96.3; Tineye Reverse Image Search.

I tried to update Firefox 3.0.15 to a newer version (I believe it's 4.0.1) and all the downloading went fine, but when I went to drag Firefox into the applications folder (using Mac OS X 10.6.7) it said that the operation couldn't be performed because I don't have permission to access some of the items. I shut down, did everything over again, and it still had the same problem.

Can someone help? I don't want to get hacked into.
