no they are not - only crash reports there predate thee incidents.

we have gone to a machine running leopard and an older firefox and can access and download the files we need with no problem.
How come? We have used firefox for many years and been a monetary supporter. why release a versions that is so problematic?

Lee, what plugins do you have installed? In particular, do you have a plugin installed that would view pdfs without having to download them and view them in preview?

Error message when attempting downloads.
"The PDF Browser plugin has crashed. Reload the page to try again (Does not work) No report available."
Sounds like a plugin that my be using binary apis that have changed. Marcia, do you know how we report incompatible plugins?
