I cannot get rid of the Yahoo Toolbar in Firefox 12. It does not show up under extensions or add-ons.

I have eliminated all Yahoo programs (Toolbar, IM, and some updating program) in the control panel Add/Remove Programs.

I have restarted the Firefox in safe mode. There are still no Yahoo Add-ons or Extensions that show up.

I then went Help | Troubleshooting Information | Show Folder

I clicked on Show Folder.

There's a folder called "Yahoo! Inc". When I open Yahoo Inc., there's another folder called ytoolbar. I have deleted Yahoo! Inc both when Firefox was open and when it was closed. As soon as I restart Firefox, the Yahoo Inc. folder is recreated.

I am unable to remove the Yahoo Inc. folder permanently.

This is one invasive program.

How do I get rid of it?

I have read and tried several suggestions on how to change my search engine to google and it will not change to google. I have deleted anything yahoo from my computer, I did the troubleshoot suggestions, I used malawarebytes, and microsoft essentials. Additionally, I deleted the spigot/youtube downloader and toolbar, that includes the add-ons, ms config, the registry, and in my programs. Does anyone know, outside what has already been mentioned what I can do to change the yahoo search engine to google. I would like to add, I still have the same issue in safe mode.

I had a similar problem previously, and was able to find a setting under 'tools' that allowed me to set it back to 'blank page' but I can no longer seem to find that setting and this incredibar.com thing is really obnoxious.

I've noticed since updating to FF12 that now when I click to get "open link in new tab," the new tab opens on the far right of my tabs rather than next to the tab I clicked from, as it did in FF3.6. Is there any way to get it to work the old way?

I keep trying to change my default address bar search back to Google, but it resets to another browser each time I close Firefox. I have gone in to the "about:config" page and changed the keyword.url to "http://www.google.com/search?&q=" but once I reopen Firefox, the value for keyword.url is back to "http://search.conduit.com/ResultsExt.aspx?ctid=CT3072253&SearchSource=2&q=" which presents as a Bing search if I search in the address bar.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

However, after doing some settings it appeared in the status bar which is painful. I wonder how could I show animated moving icon in the Menu bar or anywhere but on top left side?

How can I get rid of whatever hijacked my Firefox 12 home page and substituted a "Bank of America" login page? I have reset my home page in Options, but that doesn't help. I suspect there is a rogue entry in my Windows Vista Registry. I tried to get rid of it with several antivirus programs, including MS Security Essentials, Avast, Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes, but none removed the offending hijacker. Help would be appreciated.

Hi there!

Here's the situation, I have only recently installed Java SE platform with Java JDK, JavaFX SDK and JRE for a freshly installed version of Windows 64-bit.

In the past I have used Firefox 3.6.x. But this time I installed the latest and greatest Firefox 12. But there is only one problem with it, it cannot run Java applets. Why?

I notice that when I go to Firefox button, Addons, Extensions, there is no extension named Java, like Java Console. Why is this? Does it mean that there is no Java plug-in installed for Firefox? How do I know the Java plug-in is installed?

How do I proceed with this problem? Please advise! I really don't feel like re-installing the Java all over again and all of it's components and having to re-configure everything from scratch. I feel this is an issue with Firefox not communicating with the already installed JRE.
