I keep getting notifications from certain web sites that my Firefox is an old, out of date version. Finally, the CarMax website gave me the same message, noting that my version was 32. I have 47.0.1. I’ve had similar (but less helpful) such messages on Facebook and YouTube.

When I deactivate all of my plug-ins, the message goes away on CarMax but still appears in YouTube and Facebook. YouTube note:

I'm using Win10 on a late model Alienware desktop.

Thoughts? And can anyone tell me what this information from YouTube means?

Thanks.

Hello,

a year or two ago I spent hours trying to find an answer to this question and I did manage to do it, but sadly a couple weeks back I had an unplanned data loss, and I'm unable to find any solution to my problem anymore.

By 'search engine on my New Tabs page', I mean the dialogue box with search engine of choice that wasn't there in earlier version of FireFox. I want it gone. Not changed to Yahoo, Bing or anything else - just gone.

If I recall, the solution was to go to about:config and change some parameters to ones that would make the thing not appear at all (rather than remove it entirely), but if you know how to have it gone not only visually, but also formally, I'm obviously fine with this solution too.

Scenario: I have a huge webpage which takes a minute or so to load. When I switch to another tty to do something else there, and then return to X after a while, Firefox has still not completed the task. Running "top" on the VT shows near 100 % CPU usage for the Firefox process for a few seconds, but after that, this figure drops to zero.

This seems not to be a problem with X --- I can happily do the same thing with, e.g., QGIS. So far, Firefox seems to be the only exception.

What can I do to prevent Firefox from stopping in this situation?

Regards, T.

I downloaded a video from my own myspace page using the Firefox Unplug Addon. It saved to my files, but when I try to open it, I get a message that says, "A license has not been issued for this computer". When I click "ok", it brings me to the Presonus Sudio One block asking me to purchase a license now. Actually, a license has been issued for this computer, and I understand this is an issue with Presonus customers not getting properly established with the licensing of their product. But it should not stop me from playing my own videos on my own computer.

When I close firefox and open it again the allowed list is empty.

I've marked it as don't notify me when a site tries to redirect and I've turned off add-ons but still when I reopen firefox the list is empty.

I've tried adding to the list manually and then via the drop down allow this site that option that's at the top of the page that's still blocked.

I can find others with problems but they don't lose the list when firefox shuts down.

Any ideas?

THanks

There are a lot of answers out there about getting rid of the star button on the new bookmarks menu button, and I share their frustration. However, my complaint is that I don't like the star button being on the left of the dual button. Is there a way to swap the star button and the dropdown menu buttons? To clarify, I want to keep the dual button, but I want the dropdown menu button on the left, and the "Bookmark This Page" star button on the right.

Here is an image to also help clarify what I am looking to move.

In Dailymotion, the thumbnails are blacked out even with the age gate off. I have tried all the fixes found here in the support, but none of them work. It all started with the last update of firefox, so I assume it has something to do with that. Dailymotion works fine in IE and other browsers. Firefox is the only one with the problem. I would like to get it resolved if anyone can help.

Last night I was installing a software and it tried to install SEVERAL viruses on my pc that I successfully managed to stop the installation. But I got another serious threat that I want to know whether it's still there and how can I get rid of it.

When I opened the software I was trying to install, it automatically opened a new tab on my Firefox opened window and in that same instant I knew something wrong was happening. The thing is that it loaded some pages in the same tab, using a full redirection so I couldn't go back to them and it ended in a modified Google (www.google.com/"something"). The thing is that I tried to go to the download page and Firefox started telling me THAT IT DIDN'T EXIST, then I knew something heavy was going on. I used the Reset tool (about:support) and parts of the virus got lost in the process. But the thing is that even when Firefox is set to start at https://www.google.com.uy or even when I put the blank page option for starting, it ALWAYS redirects me to the page of the virus ( http://www.istartsurf.com/?type=sc&ts=1412823435&from=sky&uid=WDCXWD5000AAKX-00ERMA0_WD-WCC2EHK4239242392 ) and if I then open another tab/window without closing the main, it justs do as I configured it (home: google, new page: blank).

Since I already reset Firefox, I want to know whether I should use another mechanism (likely deleting the entire ...\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla folder) or just reinstalling Firefox? I have already passes a full scan of my PC with AVG Internet Security 2015 (found 23 virus on the virus main folder and some Windows folders) and passed Ccleaner against every Firefox component.

If I forget about adding anything, please let me know.
