Hi, Somehow, Babylon toolbar and search provider got installed. And now I want to get rid of it. So, 1) I uninstalled it from "add or remove programs" in the control panel 2) cleared out the "add-ons" from all the browsers and even 3) searched the registry for "Babylon" and deleted all the traces of it 4) searched C: drive for the keyword "Babylon" and deleted all the folders

But still to my surprise, the search results of about:home in Firefox 11.0 came out of "Babylon"

Dear Everyone:

I use Firefox (V11.0) on a Mac OS X (V10.6.8). I have a persistent problem with Youtube. When I view a video, I may get the message: "An error occurred. Please try again later".

The frequency of this problem varies from day to day. Sometimes, it happens to almost every video, and sometimes, it rarely happens; sometimes, "reloading" it once or twice, the video begins to play, and sometimes, it never plays no matter how many times I reload it.

I also have Safari (V5.1.4) on my machine, and it does not have the above problem.

Could you let me know how to resolve the problem with Firefox?

Thank you! qquito

how to uninstall a Yahoo-affiliated "Search Here" functionality from Firefox

I picked up a Yahoo Search functionality inside Firefox but there was no Yahoo toolbar. I ran Revo Uninstaller and there was no listing for Yahoo. I ran Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel but there was no listing for Yahoo. However, in my Programs File under My Computer there is a folder titled Yahoo.

Whenever I opened Firefox I would get a Yahoo Search page instead of Google. I did a bunch of searches for solutions and found that I needed to delete all of the search listings in the drop down list from clicking the gray arrow in the search box.

They were all in there – Google, Yahoo, Bing, Twitter, and an odd entry called “Search Here” I deleted everything except Google. Then I went to about:config and reset the Keyword URL to the Google entry it was supposed to be.

I thought everything was fine but all of this left me with some strange Search Here window next to the Firefox Tabs and the same Search Here entry in the drop down list previously changed.

If I perform a search from the search window next to the open tabs I get a Yahoo Search result:

If I perform a search from Google I get a Google result as I should.

Interestingly, the Search Here listing appears again automatically in the listing of search engines.

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 checked my plug-in and was told the Google Earth Plugin was outdated. I clicked on the "Update" option but nothing happened. Usually when I clicked on that option, it'll open the developer's website so I can proceed the update. But this one just sat there and nothing happened. So how could I update this plug-in?

Receiving browser setting change error message about every ten minutes.

"An unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings" There are two options to check. 1- Keep your current settings. 2-I am aware of the changes & approve it.

I can select either option and then click on the yes button, but the system does not respond. It will not let me close the window by clicking on the X in the right-hand corner. The only way to delete it is to close the window on the task bar

Hi FireFox support, We are developing a web application with javascript, we use firefox as our default browser for our users.

Now we met a problem when we use window.open in our application.

In our application, we need to open new page in a new browser tab, we used code : window.open('http://ourUrl.com', '_blank');

The action of the browser is different according when this line of code is executed.

situation1: user clicked a button, the click event will trigger our js function, in this function, execute this line of code directly, then the browser may open the page in a new browser tab. (this is what we wanted.)

situation2: user clicked a button, we firstly submit the data on page to our server, and in the callback function, we execute this line of code, it may pop an independent new window without tool bar.(this is not what we wanted).

I don't understand why the action of browser is different, can you help to explain? Thanks.

Support for enablePrivilege has been removed in Firefox (Bug 546848), so it is no longer possible to get special elevated privileges by using this method.

If a web page (or local html page) is using this then they will have to use other ways get what they want like providing a Firefox extension.

Where is it possible to find an exension of this kind (if it exists)?

For example, On a particular software, only the version 7 of firefox is marked as "certified" and I need this specific version for support reason.

I've found this website : http://www.oldapps.com/firefox.php but I would prefer downloading the file from mozilla servers for legal reason, and the only version available is 3.6.28 here :

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

(I've tryed to change the version in the download url without luck ;))

Any idea where I can get older version from mozilla servers? Thanks.

Problem: Java plugin works in IE 9 (32 bit), does not work in firefox. Does not show up in list of plugins when entering about:plugins in address bar. It was working until an automatic Java update. What I have tried: - Uninstalled all java programs in windows control panel and then installed java version 6 update 31 (32 bit). - have reinstalled firefox (twice now). - Selected Mozilla family in java browser options in windows control panel. still no java plugin shows up in firefox plugin manager. - Clicking on the "check to see if your plugins are up to date" link takes me to page that says java is missing and following "upgrade to latest version" link goes to a java update page, however the update fails to install (EULA page doesn't even load). - Downloaded offline install file (jre-6u31-windows-i586-s) and tried that, but still nothing. - Checked programs in windows control panel and only the current 32 bit version of java shows up there. No Mozilla based browser works (firefox, opera etc). Now what? I really kind of need this working but I don't know where to go from here? Thanks

Since updating to Adobe Reader 10.1.3, I noticed Firefox 11 does not display PDF files. It just shows a blank screen.

The only workaround I found is disabling the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in (ver. 10.1.3) the update installs. Firefox will prompt which application to use.Choosing Preview allows the PDFs to display correctly.

Neither Chrome or Safari exhibit this behavior, nor does Firefox 11 (Windows) with the update installed.

Has anyone else experienced this?
