When that update is installed, firefox no longer will start-up. I get a message when I try to start firefox like I'm not connected to the internet...page unable to load type message. Internet Explorer still works fine. Firefire works fine until the upgrade. I fix the problem by doing a system restore to a point before the upgrade, but then I get the message to upgrade again, so it's a circle. One question is how do I turn off the automatic upgrade for Firefox. I suspect a Vista compatability problem with the latest version of Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
To turn off automatic update, see Tools->Options->Advanced->Update And the probable reason why you couldn't access the Internet was explained in the errorpage that you saw : it's your firewall that needs to told that Firefox can access the web (the permission for the old Firefox doesn't count for the new one !).
