end of my question there are three messages the two before are to collate with this one

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

Thank you in advance for your answer and remove this headband that breaks our feet.

presented by the home page.

In vain I answer that I accept or refuse, it works on a few selection clicks then the banner reappears!

It's very very annoying

So I switch to Chrome and I don't have this pb so I conclude that it comes from Firefox!

I am retired from IT with 50 years in the business and I do not understand this bug.

Could you delete this permanent alert, especially since it has only appeared for a very few years.

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

By the way, I think there is some other difference between these two 64-bit Firefoxes. Maybe they are different "languages" or "locales"? At the bottom of the Troubleshooting Information page, there is a section on that. The one you don't want is, I think the U.S. English build. Is the other one a different language/locale?

I did the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and renaming the Mozilla Firefox Folder. All that worked fine. The taskbar icon works.

But, I went out of order. I did the above before I saw your "by the way" message. I am again attaching jpegs from both troubleshooting pages on the Internationalization & Localization section If this is what you are referring to they are both the same.

So, if this is alright I will go back and redo the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and so on. Then delete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and the desktop icon. Anything else that needs deleting?

Just for grins I am also attaching a jpeg of the Mozilla Firefox program from the Control Panel - Programs_Features page.

Think that's it.

Thanks again and again for all your help, Irv

I have Firefox pinned to my taskbar. This is how I open Firefox. It has Yahoo as my homepage, all my bookmarks and add-ons.

I also have an icon on my desktop. When I open that it does not have Yahoo as my homepage, my bookmarks and the same the add-ons.

When I click a link in a word doc or something outside of the opened browser, from my taskbar, a new browser/window opens. It goes to the site fine, but again it goes to new browser/window.

In both the above instances you will see an extra Firefox icon in the taskbar. The one on the right is the new browser/window.

I also have attached pics of what is occurring with each of the icons.

So, what gives and how to fix it?

Thank you, Irv

(See photo attached) I find it very disturbing that Mozilla is calling for active censorship on the Internet. I am against racism but it is my belief that everyone should decide for themselves what their views are rather than being coerced into doing so.

Facebook also has a notoriously strict moderation team, so I don't know why your going after them to censor even more.

For many years I have been able to read my horoscope at WWW.Tarot.com. I usually get a daily email.

I have tried disabling the popup blocker and has not help. It only happens in Firefox. I have cleared the cookies and cache. I don't know what else to try. I know something is blocking the page but I don't know what. When I click on the link to read the Horoscope it goes into the TRENDING TODAY page. How can I fix this? Below are the screenshots of what is supposed to look and what I am getting. Please help.

Every UI update, there's something that makes me enjoy Firefox less and less and it becomes more and more difficult to make it something I feel is reasonable. Having the address bar suddenly take up more of the UI is bad design and not only irks me on a design level but it just doesn't need to be that large. I *know* it has focus because I did it deliberately.

So how do I turn this "feature" off?

Before the attempted "repairs" I had a browser that idled at 700mgs on the home page of the browser, now after over 15 hours on this damnable site, and all the repairs attempted the browser now idles at 800mgs on the home page. It seems the "people" of mozilla have deleted my previous question since the Moderator came out to brow beat and insult me because jscher2000 withheld the data needed and start investigating my use of the browser rather than answer question.

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?
