I update BitTorrent to the latest version today and after that my search bar on the top right changed from Google to "Conduit Search" That was easily fixed with two clicks but for some reason it also changed what happens when I open a new tab from the default new tab page with the pinned book marks to this: http://i.imgur.com/dmU463W.png

I looked up some stuff to help and found the information on "about:config" to change the "browser.newtab.url" value to "about:newtab" however when I attempt to do that I get the window that is supposed to come up prompting me to input the new value, I put in the value and nothing changes, it remains with this Conduit Search stuff. Closing Firefox afterwards does not fix the problem and I have tried the process several times to make sure it was not just a one time bug. It also does not work for any value as leaving it blank or changing it to "about:blank" did not solve the issue.

hi i currently have the Yahoo toolbar, absolutely hate it. want to get rid of it. I downloaded the CenturyLink toolbar from CenturyLink. I installed the CenturyLink, had Firefox add them, but the toolbar isn't showing up any where. I even disabeled the Yahoo toolbar, which I still hate & want to remove. Beings how I'm still a newbie here at Firefox (love the security), hated Chrome, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong & why the toolbar isn't showing up ? oh, one other thing. when my mom got the last Firefox update, something happened. when she tries to get on Firefox there is an "xpsomething error" I've tried to uninstall firefox from the add/remove & it won't let me uninstall. Just got her started on Firefox & she loves it also. can anybody help me to somehow remove firefox & after restarting, get back on IE9 & get firefox back ? I thank you all for the help. Love Firefox !!!

Ever since i bought my macbook pro (early 2011) I was able to use the pinch in and out trackpad feature to zoom in and out in firefox. This suddenly stopped working a couple of days ago. It still works in safari so this seems to be Firefox specific. All other trackpad features are still working too.

I uninstalled Firefox on my mac by moving the Firefox icon to the trash and downloaded/installed it again. Note that i didn't delete my profile (just deleted the Firefox icon) so all bookmarks were preserved even after downloading and installing Firefox from scratch. This didn't help fixing the issue.

Any ideas on this problem ? how to fix it?

Thanks!

Hello.

After updating to FF 23.0.1, I can't restore anymore my previous session from "History -> Restore", since the command is grayed out. Currently I'm forced to bypass this glitch by opening the tabs automatically at FF startup. What's strange, this problem occurs about 99% of the time, while in a few rare (random?) cases the restore works like it should. (Please, bear in mind that I didn't use CCleaner between sessions)

Disabling my addons one at a time didn't work, so I deleted completely the profile folder, resetted FF for good measure, and tried again: same problem as before. In this case, I noticed that the one time everything worked, I was able to launch the restore from the button on FF default home page only, and not with the command "History -> Restore", which continued to be grayed out. Needless to say that this "miraculous" button vanished most of the times.

I even tried to uninstall and reinstall FF with no result.

Has someone any idea how to help me, please?

Visiting this page: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/map-geolocation or any other website using geolocation to track my location, shows a blank map and no prompt "Share location: Allow, Block, Not now".

This happened since upgrading to FF 24 (Desktop Win7 64). Downgrading to FF 23.0.1, solves the problem: FF prior to 24 supports geolocation with no problem. Tried in both my desktop and laptop with separate FF installations, using different plugins.

Thank you in advance.

[ NOTE: Now using Firefox 23.0.1, the problem only occurs after upgrading to Firefox 24 ]

I have been having numerous plug in failures in the last few days and have uninstalled on at least 3 occasions today and reinstalled and still the problems Persists. On my latest effort to activate uninstallation, adobe claims that Mozilla is open, when I had deliberately closed it before activating the uninstaller.

It wasn't and just sits there like a massive unwanted t*rd, no good to man or beast. Running under Windows 7 and there was an Adobe update in the last few days. Seems to me that every time there is an Adobe update the problem resurfaces.

Does not Adobe checj their stuff. Reloading 11.7 doesn't work, nor 11.8 and 12 seems to be as useless as a bad smell in a phonebox!

"From the Show dropdown menu, you can choose what to display in the toolbars: icons, text, or icons and text together. By default, Firefox shows icons only." Is there a way to choose an individual setting for a specific toolbar icon to be icon only (no text) without universally affecting all other icons on the toolbars?

Second, is there a way to edit the text on a specific toolbar button from an extension (because it occupies too much horizontal space on the toolbar due to the amount of text)? I do know how to locate the xpi file & open it with notepad, but then it's mainly code (not English) & FIND doesn't locate the button's text (to edit it).

These 2 questions should apply to Extension buttons in general. However IF it makes any difference I'm referring to the Toolbar Button in Back To Top 7.0 which says "Go to top/bottom". I'd at least like to edit out "Go to", but my questions apply to other Extension buttons too. I do realize it may be necessary to redo any fix/change each time there is an update? THANK YOU.

My default search from the address bar has been hijacked by Wikipedia somehow. Yes, I know. Of all things, this hijacking directs my searches to Wikipedia. Only sometimes, though, not all searches are sent there, and I don't know why. I would expect ask.com maybe, but wikipedia. No lies.

I've tried starting in safemode, and I've run malwarebytes several times. I've gotten rid of all of my addons, and nothings changed. Uninstall and reinstall firefox, delete the appdata files, nothing works. I'm even trying a portable version of firefox, and after a short while, I got hijacked again. I'm at a loss.

Is there any known malware that would redirect searches to wikipedia? What steps should I follow to fix this? Does anybody have any idea what could cause this?

Now there are fields that do not save any and some that will save 2 of the same entries. No matter what I do I cannot get firefox to save more than 2 entries for each field. Previously there would be 20-30 saved entries for each field, not any more. Please let me know how to fix this problem.

I am so annoyed and cannot find solution on your site. Starting about a month ago, when I open Firefox, instead of my Home Page, a page named "Sponsorship" pops up & “urgently” states: (Copy of Screen) "Flash Video Downloader is required to download online video

   100% FREE update
   Watch HD Movies online
   Supports FLV/Flash
   Beautiful HD video, faster graphics rendering, and high performance


Download will only takes a couple of minutes" Then asks me to install.

I ignored it multiple times; tried to contact the "producer" asking to desist, but no reply. Norton says the file is VERY New, but (apparently) safe. I checked FireFox Extensions page and a “Featured” Extension, which appears to be this “Flash Video Downloader” is listed, but when I check it out, the Developer seems to be someone different. I finally downloaded the file, but have not yet installed it. And I get a different name and company: InstallPath -Amonetize Ltd. in Israel! Is this legit or a “worm”. If latter, how do I GET RID OF IT? This is the address in the bar when it opens: http://staple.officebusinessupplies.com/t/?ilmernzkvtazn=5A3E8ED3B439D307&pu=&s=D-firefox&nm=ilmernzkvtazn&t= (I just "experimented" and re-opened this link, only to find a different page stating I must update my media player!) There is no consistency, so I am suspicious but I AM SO TIRED OF BEING BOTHERED! Must I uninstall and reinstall Firefox to get rid of it? sure hope not. Thank you in advance for any help in keeping me from going insane!

Ever since I installed Firefox 23.0.1, I have had many problems. Firefox is very slow to open and crashes several times a day, especially if I'm on Facebook. The internet, especially Facebook & Facebook games are very slow. When Facebook updates, it is so slow that it hangs up my entire system.

My router and cable modem are working correctly. I recently installed new ethernet cables between the cable modem, router and computer. Brighthouse was here last week and I have a strong internet signal. All of my plug ins are up to date and so is Windows XP. I have cleaned my browser's cache several times. Closing and restarting Firefox helps for a little while.

FF 23.0.1 Windows XP.

I can download fine and they show up in the little window on Firefox, but they are not being saved to the My Documents - Downloads folder, which is where I assigned them to go in Tools-Options-General.

Since I'm on XP, there are no User files so I can't look in Users/XXX/Temp/Appdata or any of those locations.

I can double click on the downloaded file in the little Firefox window and the file opens, so I know they are saved somewhere on my computer, but where????

My computer has been turned off for almost a year. When reconnecting, refreshing, updating, etc, everything that needs to be done on the computer, i come across the problem of firefox acting as though I did not update anything. I've followed all the prompts and directions from every site, for say Flash for example, and no matter how many times I run the update program, over in firefox the page never changes from the prompt telling me to upgrade the program. The program doesn't seem to update, even though I just told it to update. It's doing this with multiple programs. Please help me. What do I do?

How does it take a user like myself (been using ff for 7 or more years) 4 different pages to actually get to one to ask a question? Seriously, IE has better access to the support forums. Now on to my actual problem. I have a lot of bogging/crashing related to flash player 11, as well as even the most current version of flash (and yes I have uninstalled all older versions) reading as an outdated version. Is there no way to get ff to actually work concurrent to flash or am I just fated to run chrome instead? Wouldn't believe a hardware issue since it's just ff (even IE runs better at this point) but Acer Aspire 7741z with W7 (and yes I know it's an outdated system but specs are still up to current),

I absolutely HATE IE, so I hope we can find a solution to my problem.

Pc info: Win 7 64 bit, 2.9 pentium with 4 gig ram video: radeon HD 3800

Three days ago I was infected by some malware. While i had it i could not watch videos on youtube in full screen unless i constantly moved my mouse. I uninstalled the malware and it didn't help. I reinstalled videos card drivers (even tried the new beta drivers), firefox, adobe flash, java 32 and 64 bit, and performed these steps: http://techlogon.com/2012/06/04/flash-player-crashes-in-all-web-browsers/

I've reset Firefox, emptied cache in Firefox, and manually deleted all program temp folders I could find. Also, I have disabled all add-ons and plugins, and even ran Firefox in safemode. Nothing seems to work. There may be a few things I've forgotten that I've tried.
