Apparently pushed the wrong "Download" button. Now instead of my homepage (which I have reset), when I open Firefox the "search.conduit.com" page opens. I used the "about:config" procedure several times but it didn't work. There is nothing listed on "add/remove" that is related. Also scanned with Ad-aware, Super AntiSpyware and Norton 360. How do I clean search.conduit out of my browser?

YouTube videos worked fine before installing Adobe Flash Player. When installed the screen flickers after one second, rewinds to the beginning, then plays normally. This doesn't occur when I use Internet Explorer. I have reinstalled both Mozilla Firefox and Adobe Flash Player many times but nothing seems to work . Downgrading Adobe Flash Player didn't work either. It seems like Firefox is the problem but I'm not completely sure.

I recently reset Firefox. Before whenever I downloaded a file, it automatically prompted me if I wanted to open the file or save it to my computer, with saving it to my computer preselected. This was fine because I almost never want to open these downloads automatically, and I like all my downloads to go into my downloads folder on a separate drive with much more space (not the temp folder on C:\). The option "do this automatically for files like this from now on" was useful for the rare file type that I would want to open automatically (usually because it's a very small music file or something).

Now every time I download virtually any file type, the prompt comes up with 'open the file' preselected, and "do this automatically for files like this from now on" greyed out. As a result, on more than one occasion, I have mistakenly clicked ok and opened huge files automatically after downloading (which has resulted in them popping open even hours later and playing automatically once the download finished). I'd like to be able to select "save it to my computer" and have it do this automatically, but that option is greyed out.

The help available seems to suggest going into options>Applications and changing the action for the appropriate content type, but: (a) not all the content types I download are listed, i.e. .mov, .mpeg, .rar, etc. (b) changing the action for the content types I do have (.wmv and compressed/zipped folder only) has done absolutely nothing.

I'm still prompted for each and every file I download, still preselected to open the file, with the "do this automatically for files like this from now on" still greyed out.

I'd like to change it to the way I had before, or at the very least automatically set all downloads to save into my downloads folder.

I'm reposting part of another thread that was closed because no one is actually listening to the people that are posting the problem.

Quote:

I had the same problem, after I installed Yahoo Messenger. I asked not to install the toolbar, but it was installed. Then I uninstalled it, I disabled it from addons, yet, the toolbar was there no matter what I did. I uninstalled Firefox, reinstalled, with the download from mozilla, the toolbar was still there. I did all that one has to do in order to uninstall a piece of software, without being "the tech guy". I do not have the same problem in Chrome or Internet Explorer. It was uninstalled from all other browsers when I removed the program from control panel. I can't see what I can do to get rid of it. I choose to just hide it for now, but it bugs me that I have a piece of software that behaves like a virus, doing stuff I don't want it to do. And for the record, I am not confused about the search for yahoo and toolbar for yahooo. Right clicking on the interface, allowed me to check or uncheck exactly that "yahoo toolbar".

/quote

This is exactly my problem as well.

In the other thread several people said 'disable it in your add-ons' Well as the poster above mentioned and I can confirm **it is not in the add-ons area**

Others said 'use the add/remove function in the control panel' and as the poster above mentioned and once again I can confirm **I did this and it no longer shows up under add/remove but the toolbar is still annoyingly there**

Yet others said 'you must have downloaded a special yahoo version of Firefox' No, we (or at least I) didn't. The toolbar was installed when I installed Yahoo messenger

-I can't believe a 'clean install' of Firefox is the answer to this problem--if so this is just ridiculous.

If there is no actual answer, I can accept that but I am frustrated that people are posting responses that very clearly are not the right answers because the people posting the problems were very clear about the issues.

Thanks for reading, please assist if you can.

Somehow a plugin with the name of Ads by Supreme Savings plugin has gotten on my computer. It slows everything down and I do not want it. It does not show up on the list of plugin's so I can not disable it. I have gone through regedit to take out all references to Supreme. I even uninstalled Firefox and downloaded the newest version to no avail. I did leave my bookmarks, etc. - could that be why this plugin is still there? Has anyone else had this issue? Can/will anyone help? Thank you for trying. Craig
