    Go to Tools > Add-Ons in Firefox and select the uninstall option beside the entry for NoScript

    But i found it under Tools -> Extensions
    And uninstalled it . Thanks for your help

    That's really an old version of Firefox. Are you unable to upgrade to a later version for some reason? You'd probably have much better security if you do so, and I know you'd have better browser features.

    By all means.

    Firefox doesn't do branches. And as such, old versions are completely unmaintained. If you use firefox 1.0.4 then you are vulnerable to evey vulnerability that has been fixed since jan/2004 or so. Very bad thing.

    Which distro and version of Linux are you using?
    Extract tar.gz package. It will create firefox folder. Look for firefox script and double click on it. Latest version will pop up.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I refuse to believe that 1.x is the latest version in your distribution. Use your package manager to update it. You might first need to update the packages database or something.

    What linux distribution are you using?

    my linux version also older one ..It's FC4

    Code:
    $uname -a 
    Linux pc021698 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp #1 SMP Thu Jun 2 23:08:39 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    Yes.I extracted it and it created a firefox directory .
    but within that directory

    When i type :
    Code:
     ./firefox &
    It throws an error
    Code:
    ./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Is it because i'm using older kernel version ?

    I see... It's really really old. You should update to a later fedora release (or whatever you like better).

    I doubt that that version of fedora will support the needed libs. The easier way would be to update your system. You can always save your home directory, so all your bookmarks and stuff will be preserved.
