Whatever you do DON'T install internet download manager, this software may not be a virus but it is virus like. It completel takes over your PC. Within 2 minutes of install it launched a windows explorer session that was taking up 55% of system resouces on a very powerful PC with loads of memory and turned the PC into an 8088 based IBM PC (showing my age).

I terminated it from Start manager and got enough resources (just) to run control panel to uninstall this think. However it is a nasty critter, it is still embedded in Firefox but launches errors every time there is a potential file to download and it does it a lot.

There is not uninstall option, just a disable, but when you restart Firefox it still says it will be disabled after reboot (done 3 times now).

So it is a system restore or open heart surgery on Firefox.

Can anyone give me any idea how to get rid of this AWFUL software.

I downloaded the latest Firefox. In trying to learn some of the new features, I hit the Full Screen option. It went to full screen and now I do not have access to the functions I need. I can't do anything! I need to find out how to undo my mistake or I will not be able to use firefox at all. I can't even get to the portion where I can go to my gmail.

OK the new FF 4.x has some changes that DRAMATICALLY reduce usability. This post deals with one of those changes that may seem rather small but is not to many users. Please tell me how to move the home button back to the left side of the address bar where it logically belongs with the other navigation button (forward/back). Whoever thought it would be good to move that must have been smoking crack. This simple feature is one of the things that made FF superior to IE. I REALLY wish FF would quit trying to emulate IE constantly and stay on track of actually being a better browser. Please do not respond with the typical "give it a chance you will like it once you get sued to it", because I won't. It is 100% absurd and illogical to have the home button way over on the right side of my browser when all of the other navigation is on the left. Please tell me how to move it back to where it belongs.

Ever since the latest Firefox upgrade (Firefox 4 I believe), my pages will not load unless the mouse is moving! It's very strange, but the moment I stop the mouse the progress of loading freezes, and the moment I move it again it will resume and continue for as long as the mouse is moving.

I've never experienced anything like this before. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, and that looked like it solved the problem, but then it came back a few hours later. It makes watching any videos impossible, or sometimes will keep playing the sound but freeze the video image until I move the mouse and the image catches up with where the sound is at. Every page I'm on I have to keep the mouse scrolling around in a freaking circle just to keep it from freezing!

I'm so disappointed as Firefox used to be perfect to me. Is there any solution to this out there? (or am I better off with Chrome...)
