So, I've already tried going into about:config and resetting or changing the keyword.URL to default or google as was suggested in other questions dealing with the same issue. I think that this problem arose when a friend wanted to watch something on veoh and it said it needed a plugin. When she downloaded it, it put a bunch of stuff on my computer which I removed. Or so I thought. I can't find any trace of the stuff now, but when I first opened firefox after this, my home page had been changed to the search-results.com homepage so I changed it back thinking everything would be good. However, now when I search in the bar provided on the default home page or just in the address bar it redirects my search to search-results.com instead of google. But just going to and using google is fine. I also went and checked on internet explorer and it had search-results as well which I was able to get rid of and google chrome had said something had tried to change settings but was blocked. The only thing that I can't seem to get rid of it in is my firefox! I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox and it's still there. Also I did a scan with malwarebytes and it removed some things but I don't know if they were related in anyway to this problem. Thanks!

I keep trying to change my default address bar search back to Google, but it resets to another browser each time I close Firefox. I have gone in to the "about:config" page and changed the keyword.url to "http://www.google.com/search?&q=" but once I reopen Firefox, the value for keyword.url is back to "http://search.conduit.com/ResultsExt.aspx?ctid=CT3072253&SearchSource=2&q=" which presents as a Bing search if I search in the address bar.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am presently re-establishing a consultancy business that I ran a few years ago and consequently, am building a WordPress-based website. As I am in a very preliminary stage of development, I set up a local host on wamp server so I could play around with my website project.

On the day this wamp server set up was completed, I was able to activate the WordPress platform, and imported and installed the Weaver II theme. I then switched off my computer for the night. However, on switching on the next morning, I ran into a curious technical problem.

I use Firefox 12 as my browser and every time I entered 'localhost', or 'localhost/wp-admin.php', or any localhost-based word combination, I get automatically redirected to an AltaVista search result (the address that appears in my URL box replacing ‘localhost’ is:

http://us.yhs4.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?fr=altavista&itag=ody&q=http://localhost/wp-admin/themes.php.

Is there a reason for this? Do you think I did something wrong in my installation, although everything seemed to be working apparently normally the night before?

From my layman’s viewpoint, it seems to me that Firefox is confusing the ‘localhost’ request to open an internal file with an external search request for an item called ‘localhost’.

Any suggestions, advice to fix this?

Sincerely,

Graham Segal

I have noticed after updating Firefox 12.0 the Downloadhelper's 4.9.9 icon is not showing on the top left such as around menu bar.

However, after doing some settings it appeared in the status bar which is painful. I wonder how could I show animated moving icon in the Menu bar or anywhere but on top left side?

PS* I had taken some screen shots but could not attach here.

How can I get rid of whatever hijacked my Firefox 12 home page and substituted a "Bank of America" login page? I have reset my home page in Options, but that doesn't help. I suspect there is a rogue entry in my Windows Vista Registry. I tried to get rid of it with several antivirus programs, including MS Security Essentials, Avast, Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes, but none removed the offending hijacker. Help would be appreciated.

Hi there!

Here's the situation, I have only recently installed Java SE platform with Java JDK, JavaFX SDK and JRE for a freshly installed version of Windows 64-bit.

In the past I have used Firefox 3.6.x. But this time I installed the latest and greatest Firefox 12. But there is only one problem with it, it cannot run Java applets. Why?

I notice that when I go to Firefox button, Addons, Extensions, there is no extension named Java, like Java Console. Why is this? Does it mean that there is no Java plug-in installed for Firefox? How do I know the Java plug-in is installed?

How do I proceed with this problem? Please advise! I really don't feel like re-installing the Java all over again and all of it's components and having to re-configure everything from scratch. I feel this is an issue with Firefox not communicating with the already installed JRE.

Every time I load Firefox Bing is the default search engine in the Web Search bar. I can remove it from the list and put Google at the top but when I reopen Firefox Bing is back on top. I have tried to about:config tactics that others have used but I believe that only affect the address bar, not the Web Search bar because it hasn't worked for me. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it to no avail. All of this started after I installed Windows Live Photo Gallery. The investigation I have done so far suggests it is a registry hack. Thanks in advance for any help. I have attached a screenshot of the exact problem so there is no confusion as to what search bar I am talking about: http://i.imgur.com/K0Mqs.png

After the lastest Firefox updates the Java platform quick working and I've tried everything suggested to get it to work again (I've gone through all the help suggestions listed) and nothing has worked. I need java for my business and have always been a huge fan of Firefox however this is a major issue as without java I cannot keep using Firefox. I have even tried uninstalling both Firefox and Java and followed all instructions to see if that worked and it did not fix the issue. Everything is up to date and there seems to be no fix for this. Is there something I'm missing? If this cannot be fixed I'm going to have to stop using Firefox. This is a major setback for Firefox and I'm not sure why they released a new version if this was going to happen. It says to try updating my graphics driver however this is a bit past my "expertise" and a person shouldn't have to take their computer in to a repair shop just to use Firefox or get this type of thing done. I have NO CLUE what the graphics driver is or how to check to update it, let alone if this will even work and am not going to risk messing my computer up to see if this will work. Java works on IE and Chrome perfectly fine and there should be no reason it doesn't work on Firefox.

When I load up iGoogle and click the Gmail tab in the top menu I get "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete." and like it says never completes.

I have the official Gmail gadget on my iGoogle desktop, and instead of displaying my inbox says "Please re-enter your password to see your information. (Why?)" so I clicked this (the "Please re-enter your password" and "Why?" part were links) and made sure the URL looked safe just in case it was some phishing scam, and it looked fine. My details were already in the username and password boxes and when I log in the message "Please re-enter your password to see your information. (Why?)" pops up again in the Gmail gadget window, same happens if I try and re-enter my details.

I've opened up Chrome and IE and Gmail and the iGoogle gadget work fine with both of these.

It's strange because Gmail and the iGoogle Gmail gadget has been working fine until now, and there have been no network or hardware changes on my end.
