I have deleted all search engines except yahoo. But now google will come up as my search engine and show up in the list of search engines. I do not want google. So how do I permanently get rid of google search engine.

I have deleted google several times. I have restored firefox to the default state several times. I have uninstalled firefox to get rid of google search, then rebooted my computer and reinstalled firefox from a new download. After trying all of this google keeps showing up as my search engine. Hope you can help me get rid of google. Thanks

It's working now but won't be for long. Soon I will continuously start getting the mozilla crash report. Refresh does not fix it, fresh reinstall does not fix it. i have made an image file of my C drive prior to the problem so I reinstall my C drive to fix it. This will last maybe one day before the problem comes back. System is windows xp, internet security is Kaspersky, latest version.

Hello. I am on Linux 32 bit and I have a completely separate issue that I got a response about a week ago but just havent had time to tackle it or dive in, related to Looks like your using an older version of Firefox which is related to Adobe Flash plug in....so I'll get around to it and dont know if that's related at all.

What is related is this error: Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (bitcoin) isn't associated with any program. So this is a Bitcoin question and I researched for over an hour on this Bitcoin protocol thing before but nothing worked. I just installed a payment box for Bitcoin on my site, and I thought it worked until I tried to copy the address and hit send (even tried with my MultiBit wallet open) and NOT THIS AGAIN! http://bitcoinmacroeconomics.com/2015/06/08/wildlife-photography-test-c/ (This was just a test) I saw this error (protocol) error for many things, not just Bitcoin, and though I tried several of the solutions, nothing worked. I can't give up now! Is this more of a MultiBit issue than Firefox? What am not getting? Again, I tried with the MultiBit wallet open to no avail.

For long time keep saying looks like your using an older version of Firefox. Numerous times I have tried to install Adobe Flash plug in, both with Firefox and at Adobe site. I am on Linux 32 bit, not 64, all details I find are for 64 bit. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/759565 I think the problem may lie here but I do not see the solution for 32 bit. Looks like maybe 2 plug ins? Anyway I need help. It's problematic with all the extra steps with the issue as you can imagine. I tried starting from scratch with Firefox, does not work, seems more like 52 card pick up....if you know that game. I'd like a solution if you have one. Thanks.

Hi!

Firefox on my Windows 7 pc keeps on reverting to version 29 over and over and over again...

I update it and after a while when I restart it I end up with version 29...

I tried to remove everything by first uninstalling it and then deleting the content of a few appdata directories but nothing seems to work...

This really feels like groundhog day...

I guess some sort of update file for 0.29 stayed stuck somewhere and it tries to apply it over and over again but I can't seem to find where it is...

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Nick

Many fonts don't render when Firefox opens local html file

I'm using a 3rd-party program called Fontlist. It reads all fonts in the Windows fonts folder, and then uses a user-chosen line of text to generate an html file on the hard drive that shows the line of text displayed in each font. Since it's a 3rd-party program, I don't have control over it's html programming.

When the generated html file is browsed with Internet Explorer, all fonts display correctly. When browsing it with Firefox, perhaps half or more of the fonts have an ordinary-looking backup font substituted. I've not been able to discern any pattern as to what kind of font displays correctly or does not.

In researching the problem online, I saw a hint that setting security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy to false might fix the issue. I tried it, and it did not have any effect. Also, in the Fonts and Colors Advanced option, I've checked the box to let web pages choose their own fonts.

Might there be any other settings that would enable Firefox to render virtually any industry-standard font installed on the system? This can affect any html files from 3rd-party sources, not just Fontlist.

this is what I see "Flash Player Plugin between 11.0 and 11.7.700.169 (click-to-play) has been blocked for your protection.

Why was it blocked?

   Old versions of the Flash Player plugin are potentially insecure and unstable. All users are strongly recommended to update on our plugin check page."

But the plugin check page only leads to the same... How to get out of this loop?

Can anyone help please? I've tried everything suggested in the troubleshooting, have even uninstalled and re-installed it but it still isn't working. It was fine last week but now it won't even open. Even when I start it in safe mode it won't stay open for long and just goes back to the screen that says there's a problem and gives the option to re-start it or quit it but if I click on re-start, it doesn't work. I haven't added anything or changed anything, so can't understand why it's been working fine for years an now won't work at all. I don't know what plugins I have installed as I can't get in long enough to find out. Any suggestions or help will be much appreciated, as I really don't want to use any other search engine. Thanks.

I don't know what it is called, autocomplete or autofill? Anyway, every time when I type in log-on box of ANY forum, email account, any account, firefox remembers the sign-on information and autofill it. I don't want this function. I only want the autofill to work in location bar on the top, which it works. But it is autofilling every and any sign-on box. Really bad. And no, it does not autofill password, which is good. I don't want autofill for password, either. Is there a way to ask Firefox to just autofill search box on the top but nothing else? I am running on windows 7 and firefox 29.0. Thanks.
