Firefox 4.01 Auto update just happened.
The only problem I am finding in replies when I have added a photo, that when further words are input slowly like being stored in a buffer then released a few seconds later onto the screen..

I had problems with Firefox 4 when it was a beta-- loading multiple times (156 was the record, as I recall) so went back to 3.6. Now with auto update to 4 problem is back. Went to "help"--a fix was given there--which was impossible to do as described.

Ah so that's what it is !!  That happens to me Sol - not all the time but it also happened on the previous version.  I put it down to my clockwork processor.  It can be confusing - a bit like those time lags you sometimes get on international telephone calls.

I get that with e-mails occasionally.

The other day a friend e-mailed me to say they'd bring the jar of Marmite I wanted from UK with them on the plane.  I got that e-mail 7 times at 1 second intervals :???::???::???:

I too have the latest Firefox, no problems except that it sometimes fails to 'finish' downloading something, the little thing just keeps 'twiddling'....[I know that feeling, too...]

 

While we're here..

I have been using Firefox for the past 7 or 8 years and never had any problems, I am currently running the latest version and it works 100%, I think I have tried about half a dozen or more different browsers but for security reasons always find my way back to Firefox.

Hi again, Sol,

Once again Firefox started to work well in the last update you posted, but now each time I log on to a new site the little loading 'wheel' goes round and round until I click 'stop' and 'reload' whereupon the site pops up straight away.....any ideas?

[Or does anyone else have this problem?]

I've Googled 'why doesn't Firefox finish loading a site ' etc etc to no avail.

Doug

Hi Doug.

Are you using Win 7?  I have that sometimes and then I look at the icon bar at the bottom and there are two copies of the Firefox icon.  If I hover the cursor over it, the peep images show the site is already up.

Doug, I too have Windows 7 but no problems with YMR using Firefox V17 but certainly other forums are having a few problems.

O.K. chaps, I'll keep pluggin' away at it, it's annoying because Chrome and I.E. don't give me the same problem, and I prefer [red] F'Fox.

Doug
