lots of phony sites(like you don't know that) for removal of this sort of junk.

where is some GOOD through info step by step for removal?

I tried regedit and search and remove everything with vGrabber, rebooting etc, but it is still defaulting as my browser.

why isn't some big company like Microsoft or Google writing nice easy to use REAL removal tools?

Since these bad programs hijack users AWAY from Google, shouldn't Google be interested in defeating them?

Using Vista, Foxfire 18.0.1 runs fine until attempting to access a site that need Java to display information. Now with the recent security warning, I first get a screen that that indicated "This plug in has security vulnerabilities -- Click here to activate Java Platform SE & U Platform."

When I click to activate, another box appears the indicates security warning. Only the box appears and at that point Foxfire is totally locked up. At that point I need to go the Task Master to kill Foxfire as well as the security popup window.

The Java Control Panel indicates that I have the latest version of Java.

Suggestions?

I am really a novice- old hippie type. I set up buttons on my desktop so i could get easily to my favorite places. Win 7 Prof - I accept all updates to Win 7 and Firefox.Home page is google/firefox. No matter where i try to access yahoo from- google search, then clicking on the web page; logging out of mail account, or clicking on yahoo pictures, i get the same error message. I did check with a technically literate friend and she gave me a suggestion that i try another link like www.news.yahoo.com and erase the "news" part and see if that would work. I got the same error message. I just dont know what else to do. BTW i will NOT be downgrading to Win 8. If you need more info, pls remember i am a serious novice . I really would appreciate any help y'all can give me because i miss yahoo. the old L.A. hippie chick

I know a lot of Firefox advance users don't recommend ordinary people to fool around with settings and configurations. And that is generally a good advice.

However, for a semi-pro user, as I would call myself, what tweaks do you recommend to get a more responsive browser, faster browsing, and more convenient user experience?

Also mention "pros" and "cons" with each advice.

Hi,

I appear to be having issues with Google Maps and Firefox.

Google Maps loads fine but then once trying to utilise the maps every operation is extremely slow and clunky, sometimes taking up to 30 seconds to complete the command.

I have tried Google Maps on Safri and don't have the same issue so can only assume it is a compatibility issue and nothing to do with internet speeds. Furthermore, I don't appear to be having any similar issues with other websites........for instance, I can watch 1080p You Tube videos without much need for buffering.

Any suggestions in laymen terms please as I'm no where near technical enough for the usual jargon ;)

I am a regular user of Firefox and truly believe it is the best browser available and that is based off of performance and doesn't even take into account how I support your mission statement for the way that you guys operate. I have run into a slight problem with navigating on the Google website when using either the pen or touch input instead of scrolling it just highlights everything. This is occurring on 4 different touch PC's that I have. I have checked IE9 and this isn't any issue in that browser or in the IE10 metro browser. I prefer Firefox of IE any day but no scroll on one of my most used pages is driving me nuts because I seem to keep trying ever time the page opens. The scroll bars are an option but are far from optimal when using your finger although with a pen they are a snap any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated and thank you to everyone at Mozilla for providing the web to all of us.

I'm using Firefox 18.0.

I searched the internet for a solution to my problem, and the closest result was Mozilla Support item titled "The latest update to Firefox (14.0.1) has added something called "easy inline" which is very, very annoying. Please, anyone, how do I TURN IT OFF???", from July 18, 2012.

I followed all recommendations but "random" phrases still become hyperlinks that display "balloon" ads on mouse-over. As for Yontoo, I do recall downloading some software over the summer that brought Yontoo along with it, but I've since uninstalled both. When I came across the support article, above, I followed the link to uninstall Yantoo, and performed it again.

Currently, neither "Yontoo", nor "Easy inline" appear as Firefox extensions or add-ons, and there are no folders or files by (or containing) those names anywhere on my hard drive.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what this could still be, and how to get it turned off, once and for all?

Thank You
