With a Java update my Firefox starting site has been hijacked by Ask Toolbar, indicating itself as my standard search tool instead of the Google, which was my choice. How do I remove it?. I cannot find the name Ask Toolbar in my Windows list of programs. And it is not shown as a part of Java, so I can find no way to delete it. Are there any other names of programs that might cover for Ask? I have tried to remove Java, and then reinstall it, carefully removing the x for Ask. It did not help, Ask is still dominating the starting site, and claims to be my standard. It is so annoying! My system is Windows 7. I hope for help...

I dont have a toolbar, it does not hijack my homepage. But everytime I open a new tab (which was always blank) I get a stupid bing search bar. That is the only place it shows up, but it is sooo annoying because I always go straight to typing whatever url I a going to, and this bar changes my cursors postion to it. How do I get rid of it?

I have looked in plugins/extensions. It is not there. I have looked in program files, and in control panel -> programs. Nothing there either. I even went into about:config and reset everything that had a bing value. Still having the problem. What else is there to try?

I use mozilla to open internet and suddenly in the search engine box at top it brings me to Babylon.com which I have never seen before. I uninstalled the program through the control panel but it still appears when I open mozilla. I do not trust it and I think it is affecting my hotmail as when I sign in it will not allow mw to delete messages or signout using the signout button which I always wish to do. I do not like to just close page. The sign in page keeps flashing as connecting at the top left of the computer, rather than just saying connected.

When trying to start Firefox an error window pops up instead stating "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Unspecified Error". I can launch a web page if go through various help prompts through Windows, which is why I'm able to email you, but the above error appears if I try launching Firefox directly. Also Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and various other programs will not launch either giving me similar error messages. I have tried downloading and reinstalling Firefox and other trouble shooting advice.

Hello, I just downloaded FireFox 8 because I've had enough of IE. Now, when I click on an Excel file in Sharepoint 2010 it opens it directly in Firefox, without the option of download/save. I need to open these files in Excel so I have the analysis and editing of Excel. How do I bring this option back so that it doesn't directly open in Firefox? When I click the Open in Excel button, I get an error ''To open this workbook, your computer must have a version of Microsoft Excel installed and your Web browser must support opening files directly from Excel in the browser.''

I made favicons for my web pages. But I didn't like them and made some better ones, which show up fine on earlier FF version on an XP, and on the Macintosh. But the new FF stubbornly hangs on to my first ones. There must be some kind of cache that needs to be cleared. I tried the normal cache clearing process, but no help. There should be no cache on favicons, just let them come in from the web site you are visiting. They are only 16x16 pixels. Anyway, how do you reset the favicon cache???

The task bar at the bottom of the screen has disappeared when I open Firefox. Even when I move the cursor down there it doesn't reappear. At the same time the tab bar has also disappeared although this does return when I move the cursor to the top of the screen. Any ideas how I can get my task bar back? If it helps I use a HP laptop using windows vista.
