I recently downloaded some freeware and, without permission, it installed some malware by the name of My Start by Incredibar that hijacked the home page, new tab page, default search engine, and other functions in Firefox.

The removal of the program itself was a simple task, as was disabling and uninstalling the addon it had installed in Firefox. I thought everything was back to normal, but when I went to open a new tab the My Start site appeared instead of the default blank page.

Will a reinstall without deleting user data solve this problem? I would rather not have to pull a full clean reinstall as I have a lot of addons with custom settings and logins.

I have latest version of Firefox but it has been happening for quite awhile. sometimes pages load fairly fast but more often than not i have to right click on the tab to reload the tab. it doesnt seem to matter how much content there is on a webpage or the number of tabs i have open.

These problems only occur when I access Facebook in Firefox. The same problems don't occur in Chrome.

I can view my Facebook message inbox, but when I try to open a message/message thread, it doesn't load. I just see the loading icon.

Similarly, if I try to use the icons in the top menu bar (notification icons on the left, arrow on the right), I don't get a drop-down if I click on them. If I click the notification icons on the top left, I should get a drop-down showing the recent activity, but instead it just switches to the icon showing that I don't have any new activity. If I click the arrow on the right, I should get a drop-down with account options, but instead it just takes me straight to the "General Account Settings" page.

I purchased a new computer about a month ago, and I've noticed pretty consistently when I try to reload the current page, I have to hit the reload button numerous times for the page to reload. Eventually the page does reload, but in the past with my old computer this was never a problem, just hit the reload button and the page very quickly was reloaded. Any reason as to why this is happening now with firefox 15, the version I'm now using with my new computer? Thank you.

After problems with security in all recent Java versions, which Mozilla had automatically disabled. Oracle released the fixed version of Java (7 update 7) which after uninstalling my current version (6 update 34?) I installed. Now I find that there is no Java to been seen on firefox (I have the lastest version). It's not in the plugin list and going to the Java website and running their online test (http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp) says that I do not have Java on my system. So I did the normal troubleshooting things mozilla recommends and I have still not had any luck! I've looked in regedit for any signs of Java v.6 but it seems to have been properly deleted with uninstallation, so I don't think its the old version causing the problem. I'm out of ideas. Is this a problem with the new Java release or is it firefox? Also note that I've tested IE (64bit) and it seems to have java.

Hello everyone!

I would like to open up some space in my bookmarks toolbar (also on the navigation toolbar if I can) by reducing the spacing between the icons. Is there any way to do this without the need of some third party program? If not, which one should I download?

Curious thing is that a few days ago I did not have this problem at all, all my bookmarks were visible in the toolbar regularly, neat and tight. Now there is that boring guillemet sitting there at the corner...

And this is the line where I thank you quite a bit for your interest towards my problem. So thank you very much:)

With respect Arial

I am on a Mac and since downloading the newest version of Firefox, I have been unable to access www.google.com or use the Google searchbar built into the browser. The site is not blocked and I am not running any third party programs that would inhibit my ability to access the site. I can access Google.com using Safari, and other search engines work in the Firefox searchbar (Bing and Yahoo). If this problem isn't fixed I'm just going to switch back to Safari -not being able to use Google or Gmail is just too big a deal. Clearing my cache didn't help.

I have a lot of duplicate bookmarks in Firefox and the number keeps on adding on. There are few answers regarding this on Support pages but none of them work. Neither the add-ons mentioned there(sad such trivial and basic things need add-ons) .

As there's no good way to sync Chrome and Firefox bookmarks I often end up manually importing in either browser from the other and after that I end up having tones of duplicates. I can deal with this in Chrome but have not figured out how to do this in Firefox. I think Sync ought to handle this.

Anyway, any quick solution regarding this? Preferably without an add-on (sigh!! one more thing to slow down the browser).
