Installed the new version of Firefox, scroll wheel does not work
Installed the new version of Firefox, now my scroll wheel does not work. I need this problem immediately or will be forced to give up Firefox as my browser. Can anyone help? I've seen some Q & A on this, but no trouble. Thank you!

UPDATE: I've updated my synaptics driver for my touchpad (by going to the device by clicking on Update Manager in the tab drivers mouse) and this fixed the problem not only for my touchpad, but also for my USB mouse. My computer is a laptop HP, is told by the way.
I am running firefox 3.something, I think, and I keep trying to install the latest version on my mac. I have through save, open, drag the icon to my apps file... and when I drag my apps file, it takes a few seconds to do * something *, pings to me and then nothing after that. I try to open it and it tells me that I have to close firefox first, so I didn't (restart even) and when it opens again it still opens to the old version.
Looks like you are trying to install the latest version by downloading it from the Mozilla site. What happens if you try and install by choosing Firefox > Firefox in the Menu bar? Yet you say that Firefox is not updated?
Also, have you tried to uninstall Firefox using CleanMyMac or AppCleaner, for example and then install again? Please do not do this until you are satisfied you have saved all the information that you want to keep, first (passwords, etc.).
When I install the new version of firefox browser dose being not fit on my screen. I cannot see the tabs or the bar ul and can leave not even firefox without using ctrl-alt-del and opening a master and have it at the end of program. Help, please.
You may have a corrupted file xulstore.json .
Can not connect to any Web site.
texhusky Hello, normally these problems are caused by a security/firewall software which does not recognize and therefore blocks the new versions of firefox. If please delete all the rules of the program for firefox to your firewall and let it detect the new version of the browser again.

If you want to have a bookmarks toolbar, why not use the feature already built-in firefox instead? : Bookmarks Toolbar - see your favorite at the top of the Firefox window websites
If I install the new version of firefox, it will save my custom settings and bookmarks?
It seems that you already have the latest version, Firefox 6. You can look to the right of your question or you can look at help > about Firefox.
To answer your question, update usually retains your personal data (bookmarks, passwords recorded, etc.). However, it is always a good idea to keep a backup of your personal data in case of hard drive failure or accidental formatting, preferable on another hard drive, a USB pin/USB/thumb/key or a CD/DVD, so that you don't miss them. I use an add-on named FEBE for me to do on a regular basis.

I had Firefox and then tried to upgrade to the new version. The Green install bar happens at about 80% and then finally message said: it has been discontinued. Now don't have any so, using the Firefox browser.
- Download the installer of Firefox and save the file to the desktop
- Start the installation by double-clicking on the desktop icon
It is possible that antivirus software is causing problems.
Try disabling the anti-virus temporarily to see if that makes a difference.

I got the message to update my browser, I went on the site and download the latest version of Firefox. I update my plug-ins as well. However, I always get the message that my browser is obsolete. I uninstalled it, reinstalled, without success. Please help me. When I go to help and select about Firefox, I have that I use the latest version: 6.0.2.
Check general.useragent preferences on the topic: config page.
You can open the topic: config page through the address bar just like you open a Web site.
If all general.useragent prefs are "BOLD" (user set) then right-click this pref and select reset.
It would be probably due the FBSMTWB on the end of your useragent that you had added the Fast Browser Search toolbar extension.
running the latest iMac.
Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily disables hardware acceleration, restores some settings and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).
If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:
- Click the menu button
then select restart with disabled modules.
If Firefox does not work, you can start Firefox in Mode safe as follows:
- On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
- On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
- On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
(you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)
When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."
If the problem is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps described in the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.
To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.
When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem.

Since the installation of the version 4.0, there was a problem with the scroll wheel doesn't work does not correctly. Most of the time it works but sometimes the wheel stops working and is no longer made the pages up and down. At this point, I have to close the browser and reopen it.
Have you updated your mouse drivers lately? In addition, this can happen if you spend the rendering engines using an addon like IE Tab. If you have installed IE Tab, it may need to be updated.
I use windows 7 64-bit os laptop Dell inspiron 15R. My firefox browser was current until a few days before. Then soon it started crashing. No way I could support a window open for more than a few seconds. (If I restart the system it can last for a few minutes) Finally, as a last response I uninstalled firefox and downloaded the latest version (Firefox Setup 25.0.1). But now, when I tried to run the Setup file, it says that I can't run in the version of widows I use. but, I've been using firefox in the same machine for years! then another link, I downloaded Firefox Setup Stub 25.0.1. But running this file does nothing! It shows "Download" for hours without progress. Now, I was able to install a former 16.0.2 configuration file but I could certainly be upgraded. How can I upgrade to the latest version. I simply loved firefox than any other browser and I used it for years. This is the first time that I face this big headaches. Please help me understand this. (Thanks in advance for reading of patients)

Hello, I would like to explain the whole situation.
I tried already to Microsoft support and they did not / were not able to help.
I have three mice:
(1) comfort Mouse 6000 for business, white
(2) comfort Mouse 3000 for businesses, white
(3) comfort Mouse 3000 (commercial version), black.
The 1 and 2 appear in Intellipoint and Windows 7 64 - bit (Devices section and printers) as Comfort Mouse 4500. 3 however presents itself as the correct model (3000). 3. scroll wheel perfectly works (it's instant and smooth). 1 and 2 scroll wheels don't move unless I really push on this issue, and even then it only moves a little at a time.
I uninstalled however Intellipoint at some point and 1 (tried 2) will work as it should (instant scrolling and smooth), however I can not change the side buttons.
Any help? Thank you!HelloGiven that the same problem occurs in different computer, the problem here lies in the mouse. I suggest you to contact the Broken/defective product group for further assistance.Broken or defective products

Thanks for that; I thought that I might need to downgrade to know!
In previous versions of firefox, I could use about: config to make the new tab opened as my home page. the latest version of firefox doesn't seem to allow this. I find it very frustrating that all the search engines seem to want to dictate what I see when I Browse. I wish to install the new version of firefox
In Firefox pref browser.newtab.url 41 disappeared. This pref has been hijacked by malware so frequently while Mozilla has decided to remove this pref to eliminate this kind of diversion.
You will need an extension like this one to restore.
Or to have your home page as the new tab page, try this extension.
If you're using Classic theme restaurant, go to the options of CTR > general UI (2) and set your preference for the new tab URL there.
For Super Start , you can use the topic: superstart page.
