    Why does Firefox ask me to upgrade flash occasionally when there appears to be no difference between the versions (10.1 r86 to 10.1 r86)? Also why do I have to always re-download the Adobe download manager?

    What does http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ say?
    For me (Firefox 3.6.9) it's reporting that I have 10.1.82.76 installed and am up-to-date.

    Important Note you can get Flash player for Firefox (and other non-IE browsers) without the download manager - you just have to dig around in their tech support area until you find the Manual Installer.

    Recommendation:

    1. Uninstall Flash
    2. Reinstall using the manual installer
    3. Check the Mozilla plugin check page to make sure it's worked

    osx - How can I modify keyboard shortcuts for Firefox?
  • e.James

    I recently started using Firefox as my primary web browser, and I would like to change some of the default keyboard shortcuts, especially the ones used to switch between tabs. Can this be done?

    I took a peek through the Firefox directory in "Application Support", as well as the application bundle itself, but nothing jumped out. Google searches have also proved fruitless.

    Update: I'm running Firefox version 3.6 for Mac OSX 10.6.2

    Maybe you can use keyconfig extension for that?

    At this link some people say they got it to work on Firefox 3:

    @ M.C yes it is !!! (compatible with Firefox 3.6) you have to extract the file "install.rdf" from "functions_for_keyconfig-1.4.0.xpi" with a deziper prog like "WinZip" in Windows or "file roller" in Linux.

    Edit "install.rdf" and search for this line: "3.5.". Then replace with "3.6.".

    In "functions_for_keyconfig-1.4.0.xpi" replace file "install.rdf" with the modified one. Save. Open your Firefox 3.6, drag and drop the file "functions_for_keyconfig-1.4.0.xpi" in Firefox windows. That's it.
