I have ads from a http://clkads.com this seem to be a browser hijacker. I see this ads either or facebook on the side banners, in between search box and categories on ebay. I've notice that if you disable flash it does not show anymore, but well, I need flash. I have checked my pc for virus and it is clean. I have the latest Norton 360 6.0 version I have a fast HP Envy17 3D laptop, with and I7 and solid HD running on Win 7 64b. I have not noticed my pc slowing down, but I am sick of the ads and adobe flash is constantly crashing, something I never happen before.

I have found some websites claiming to clean it, but I do not feel confident downloading software I don't know, also installed add-ons to block but still they filter.

There is no information either here or on the Norton DB.

Hope some one can help me and or some one else to remove this annoying ads.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit,

I have been running Firefox without any problems, however, today when using it it suddenly crashed and I was unable to start again.

It would display a menu with choices whether to run in safe-mode and some other options, but I would not be able to start in safe mode, because, while displaying the options, "windows is trying to solve the problem" message appears freezing firefox and the only way out is to end the program.

However, If I choose to launch firefox in compatibility mode with XP sp3, I can use it without any visible problems.

The only changes I've done is updating Java yesterday, but there weren't any issues right after the update.

How could I fix this?

/I need the latest Java to run some applications (chess in particular) that requires the latest version/

I don't have anything in the crash log from today

We have been setting signed.applets.codebase_principal_support in FireFox to allow copying to the clipboard in Window XP and Windows 7. It has worked fine until version 15, and it no longer works. If we cannot use this feature, we will have to convert all of our users to IE or some other browser that allows us to do the copy.

I had a problem with Firefox. When I start the firefox, it works. But for a while (randomly) I can't click on firefox menu anymore. The right click menu doesn't work either. The dropbox (select box) in website does not work.

I'm using Xubuntu 12.04 64 bits:

   Linux minh-desktop 3.2.0-26-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 14 17:49:24 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Everytime I get this problem, I have to restart the firefox. I had no problem with Firefox 12 had the problem with 13 and 14. I'm not sure if Firefox version or Linux Kernel causes the problem.

I tried safe mode but it doesn't help.

Please help. Thank you.

It was working just fine, but then one day it decided to stop. It ACTS like it's going to download just fine, but when that "download" bar pops up, it waits a moment, then instantly says it's "done" with 0 bytes downloaded. Then nothing pops up on the desktop either. Except once when it said it couldn't play the file.

If it worked I am supposed to upgrade my graphic drivers but it is already up-to-date. I don't want to keep my hardware acceleration disabled but when I enable it I still have some problem. Help me!

After getting the latest update with Firefox i have run in to nothing but issues on flash related sites and any games online that require flash to use them. I'm running flash, 11.3.300.265, when I first started this with this issue I was running an older version of flash updating it only made the issue worse in Firefox. Now flash works fine in IE 9, Opera 12, Safari 5, and Google Crome, using the same sites and same version of flash. I've also removed, and disabled all add ons besides flash to see if some how they are causing an issue and that didn't fix it I've also tried removing my profile completely with no fix as well. I've also tried beta 15 with no luck as well.

The only other recent change was to update Adobe Flash yesterday. Everything else is updated. I can use the other browsers to get to my Netflix queue, but I would prefer not to. This just started. It is annoying but I am planning to upgrade my iMac to Mountain Lion and would like to have as many things working properly as possible. I am going to let Netflix know also as the problem may be on their end. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I do not use tabs and it's intrusive when they pop up all the time even though I have tried to disable them. I used to use the Tab Killer add-on ages ago but it's no longer current.

I don't use Firefox because of all the browsers, it's the only one where tabs just won't go away by fiddling with the settings, and I would desperately like to use an alternative browser that isn't attached to the less-than-honorable entity known as Google.

I accidentally downloaded Babylon unknown to what a truly horrible search engine this is! I have tried to get rid of it, by un-installing, I did manage to get rid of the search engine to the right of the URL bar bu doing the whole plug-in thing. I tried what everyone said about doing the about:config thing, and when I search keyword.URL, that is blank, but I changed it to google anyways, then I searched Babylon and modifed, and reset everything marked with Babylon. However, when I close out Firefox and re-start, my homepage STILL goes to babylon even after I changed all those setting and then also set google as my homepage in the options and add-ons tab. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

I somehow unintentionally downloaded something from babylon.com, and it took over both my homepage and the "New Tab" feature from Firefox. Now, instead of opening the normal page with thumbnails of my favorite sites, it goes to a babylon.com search screen. Do Not Want. How can I restore Firefox's New Tab feature?

ETA: I've deleted all babylon.com programs I can find on my computer and cleared all history, even updated Firefox.

This is when you click the "whats on your mind" box. Started happening yesterday. Works OK on IE. Scanned page source and found composerTourStart on firefox but not IE. COMPLETELY deleted firefox, saving and restoring only bookmarks. ALL plugins and extensions are disabled. Same thing. I see this exact problem reported a lot, but on Chrome.

Also, the buttons for friend requests/messages/ all clear the number and do nothing. Both started happening at the same time.

Firefox 14.0.1, XP SP3

I put what I think is the area causing the message from the Page Source area.

Was infested with Babylon so I was really ticked off wrote a nasty note to the makers of this software.. They sent me this response.. And yes I did try a number of things before I did the following

For Firefox: Write in the adress line "about:config" and enter. Confirm the message. Look for "Babylon". Right-click the entries and click "Reset".

Nothing worked till I did this.. I went tru and reset every item in the list.. and now no longer have to deal with it redirecting me. I did try removing the program from the program list, I did remove all from my registry, I did remove from my search engine list.. nothing worked until I got this information from the manufacturer of this software with a giant apology

Thank you for taking the time to write us.

Please accept my apology for any inconvenience.
