Known problems and solutions

    Some firewall software may silently block Firefox from running. Most firewalls will ask you whether to allow a program to connect to the Internet. It's important that you always grant Firefox access. If you deny access, you must go into the firewall's configuration program and re-allow access. Even when disabled, some firewalls deny access.

    If Firefox is installed on a multi-user system in a location which is not writable by users, Firefox must be run once by a privileged user. If this is not desirable, an empty file must be created in the following directory: /extensions/talkback@mozilla.org/chrome.manifest

    Software Update will not work if Firefox is installed to a location that you do not have write access to, since Software Update needs to replace or create files in this location.

    If you disabled xpinstall in Firefox 1.0.x by unselecting the Allow Web sites to Install Software preference (changed in Firefox 1.5), go to about:config and set the xpinstall.enabled preference to true to re-enable installs.

    Older versions of Adblock may cause the Clear Private Data confirmation window to appear when Firefox starts. If you experience this, make sure you are using the newest version of Adblock or Adblock Plus.
