Yahoo search engine seems to have imposed itself as default search engine whenever I open a new tab or use the small search pane on top right of screen. Is this a Firefox default setting and, if not, how can I switch it off?

I've seen several threads that describe the same issue - the cursor appears in the address bar by default on a new tab. I have not seen a single solution. Mozilla needs to sort this out because it's very annoying.

This started happening only after I updated to FF 17. Until that point the cursor was in the google search box. It was just a FF update, no new extensions or add-ons. The only workaround I have is the Custom New Tab extension.

I just don't want to have to install new extensions to add functionality every time they update to a new version that creates new issues. FF already lacks some basic tab management functionality which forces me to use extensions s.a Tab Utilities. It's been 17 versions already and FF still doesn't let me set up new tabs from Bookmarks, Address bar, etc, or multi-row tabs / bookmarks, new tab position / focus, right-click menu options, etc etc etc. Just don't make it worse guys.

Two days ago I started getting the "server not found" error, off and on, daily. It is happening on both my desktop iMac 10.7, and my Windows 7 laptop. I keep having to hit the "Try Again" butting, and sometimes, several times, before a web site will finally launch. The only two extensions I have on both, are the Adblock Plus and the Last Tab Close Button, both of which, have been installed on said computers for months and months and months.

I went in and changed a setting to the "auto detect proxy setting", hoping that would work, and it did not.

I have Firefox version 21 on both computers, and it seems the problem started shortly after this latest Firefox update, and at the SAME TIME on both computers.

I do not have virus protection on my iMac, nor on my Windows 7 laptop, at the moment, but I have run online software to check for anything, and no issues, so I believe, it is not that which is the issue.

The firewalls on both computers are working fine and no issues there either, I have not changed any firewall settings, on either computer. It couldn't be the firewall, in my opinion, because this annoying error message started happening on BOTH of my computers, at the same time; I work on my iMac in the morning, then switch to my laptop in the afternoon, and same issue continues on both, and started at the same time, on both.

Is there something broken in Firefox from this last update of the browser?

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why both computers are having this issue, at the same time?

I have not tried using I.E. yet on my laptop, I rarely have ever needed to use that browser, and I hate it, so I don't use it.

Any help or suggestions, would be appreciated.

Windows users keep getting prompted about java version being insecure and are advised to disable the plugin. They then complain that java based websites no longer work. Can I disable / prevent this warning feature. And can I re-enable java plugin via command line or script? I need to do this on a large scale and various versions of firefox. Right now I will need to abandon firefox if I cannot easily resolve this. Yes I realize updating to latest version of java is a solution... but this will take too much time now and how long before another security fix for java and then I will have to update yet again.

This just started a few months ago. I cannot open a PDF from a search engine with FF (version 22). I click on a link (PDF) and FF opens a blank tab. I have searched Options-Applications-Search for PDF, and nothing comes up. However, in the applications tab, I can see Adobe Reader (default). PDF opens just fine with IE 10 and Google Chrome. I have read through all of the other posts regarding this issue, and I have tried the advice there to no avail. Can someone please help me? Thank you!

I have seen a lot of answers here that don't appear to understand the real problem. The key here at one time I chose to DISABLE the reminder on the pop up. The "Do you want Firefox to remember this password" box doesn't pop up anymore.

All history has been cleared, all sites and passwords have been cleared. Under "Security" tab "remember passwords for sites box" is checked and under "Privacy" tab "Always use private browsing mode" is disabled.

The last time this happened, I uninstalled/re-installed Firefox. Is that the only solution?

Google is my default search engine. But for whatever reason, whenever I search a site in the address bar, the first 3-10 possible solutions appear next to a magnifying glass, and when I click them, they are automatically searched through bing. Even google. I do not like bing and do not want to use it; I have tried everything I can find to get rid of this problem, but nothing is working. I installed an add-on so that when I open a new tab, the page is my homepage, which is google. I tried the about:config way to get rid of bing from the address bar but it did not work. It is extremely aggravating and annoying to have everything, even google, pop up in bing searches. Does anyone know what is going on?

Whenever I try to watch any video on youtube, it will not load more than a few seconds at a time. It will stop and stutter and lag for several minutes before it continues to load. This was not the case as little as 3 months ago. I have update flash and my computer and internet speeds have not changed. Even pausing the video and waiting will not usually allow it to load past about 3 to 10 seconds.

About 2-3 days ago, I started noticing after clicking FIrefox in the taskbar that it was taking a couple seconds to open rather than instantaneously as usual and then this Start.Qone8.com pops up. Not only that, but my default google search is repeatedly being set to Amazon.

Things I have tried:

-Removing any unrecognized programs from the control panel. (Problem remains.)

-Simply clicking the search button at the top right and changing defaults to Google. (Does not stay default.)

-Resetting Firefox which use to do me good (No difference, problem remains.)

-Removing a few add-ons. (Thought the only add-ons i tend to install are all Firefox.)

-Dragging a new homepage (Apparently Start.Qone8.com will ignore this once i reopen the browser, once closed.)


I've tried avoiding any "free cleaners, anti-viral/malware, bots" or any of that garbage, since I fail to believe such an effective thing exists, since they'll probably just give new viruses as well.


I'll appreciate any help that can guide me manually rather than suggest a sketchy, not really heard of removal download. So please none of that, "Oh its easy, two steps, install this". I want to play this safe. Only two step solutions I want to do are ones that just involve me clicking things manually.

If it appears that its absolutely impossible according to most of you to do it without some garbage removal installer, then I'll consider it.

Thanks

Ever since I've started using Windows 7 I've had issues with Firefox. It randomly crashes or becomes unresponsive, it slows to a crawl, Flash player crashes particularly if I have multiple videos or whatnot open at the same time, it sucks up *way* too much memory for what it's supposed to be doing, so on..Basically it acts like IE used to (not sure if it still does).

I recently did a fresh format and Windows 7 install and installed Firefox onto it. Literally the first thing the browser did was freeze. I've had similar issues on both Windows 7 Home and Windows 7 Ultimate. On XP things worked fine.

Reading on the internet I've seen that other people have similar problems. I'm assuming that there is something about Windows 7 that Firefox doesn't like or vice versa.

I'm wondering if anybody has had any luck hunting down a version of Firefox that wants to play ball. I'm currently using the latest version and it is pretty aggravating.
