Firefox used to have a screen full of my most visited sites open when I opened a new tab. Now, after installing and uninstalling Incredibar software (malware is more like it), I cannot seem to get the MyStart page to stop opening when I create a new tab. Is there any way to restore the original New Tab page that I had before?

The OLD advice for this problem, listed below, is NOT working. The web addresses just DON'T come off:

1) Click the arrow that's located on the far right side of the Firefox address bar. A list of URLs will drop down.

2) Place your cursor over the URL you wish to manually delete.

3) Hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard. Then, press the "Delete" key. The highlighted URL will be deleted. Or I've been advised to hold down the "Control" key. Neither works.


There must some new, updated instructions on how to delete unwanted web addresses from the drop-down list. Anybody???

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

Several times over the last couple weeks, I type up a very well thought out response on Facebook in political conversations with friends. An hour or two into my work, I hit backspace with the intent of editing what I wrote (maybe after I scrolled or something, so maybe I unintentionally took the edit window out of focus). The navigator takes me back a page and I lose my two hours of work. Infuriating! Shortcuts with the ability to wipe out two hours of works should be disable-able. Not only that, I feel that is an unsafe shortcut for this very reason, and would have added a SHIFT modifier key or something like that. I think I invented a cool word: disable-able.

I had tried to change my default search engine to no avail. Had read a lot from the help file but it seems none of the recommendations had work. The problem is in the upper right hand corner search box where the default as of now (the search engine when I open firefox for the first time) is Yahoo. I had tried to change this to goggle by clicking the drop down arrow and select a new search engine but does not take effect. Yahoo is still in effect as the search engine in spite of making the change. I had also followed the advise of some to change the default engine by typing "about:config" in the address bar and reset some values but yet after closing and opening firefox again, Yahoo is still the default search and could not be change by selecting in the drop down list of the search.

There is a red window that pops up saying certain sites are "attack" sites, and it is super annoying. Supposedly it is another one of Google's brainiac schemes called "safe browsing". I don't want it, it's blocking some of my favourite sites but I can't seem to get rid of it. How do I disable/remove/delete the bleeping thing?

I'm stuck with Babylon as a homepage. I used REVO to remove the toolbar but something in the process must have gone wrong because the homepage keeps coming back. I cleaned the About:config as stated in earlier posts (mstone, homepage and new tab) and when I restart Firefox the first tab is firefox and the second babylon. When I close and startup firefox again then the first tab is babylon and I'm back to square one. The removal of the browser manager seemd too technical to me and I didn't dare to do it. Any suggestions?
