My OS is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit; using Firefox ver 15.0. I downloaded Babylon tool bar and related apps because they were associated with a tool manual that I wanted to review. I then discovered how invasive these apps are. Successfully removed Babylon downloader and Tool bar via Start | Control Panel | program menu. However I notice that "Search the web (Babylon)" is still listed in the drop down menu of search engine options. I have defaulted my search engine to Google, and I can delete the Babylon option, but it returns every time when I close my browser and then return to my FF Mozilla home page. How can I permanently remove Babylon as a search engine option?

I've tried clearing all my history, cookies, and everything else on Firefox, but it doesn't fix the problem.

Whenever I try to comment on a post in facebook it says "Unable to post comment." And it won't let me like any posts either.

Google Chrome works perfectly with Facebook. I don't want to quit using Firefox, but unless I get a solution soon that may be what I have to do.

Where does Firefox 15 store History? Is it in only one single file?

I'd like to be editing the file(if it is) so I will be able, in the future, to merge needed history, or if needed, whole database of history entries to another profile.


Thanks!

Whenever I try to play a video in fullscreen the video plays normally for a few seconds but then soon becomes very choppy except when moving my mouse... which is weird. The video is fine when it's normal and not fullscreen. (Except the videos on IGN.com. Both normal and fullscreen are like that.) First time I noticed it was just a few days ago. Also it's not just one video kind of video player (like youtube's video player, Upload2, etc.) It's all of them.

This is the first time this has ever happened to me and I couldn't find anything like this through searching.

Unable to view video from YouTube because there is a filter enabled. It happens on work and home networks and only on Firefox (15.0.1).

After updating to Firefox 15.0.1 and Adobe Flash Player to 11.4, I was unable to view media from YouTube. I was given a message: "This video is unavailable with the Education Filter enabled. To view this video, the site network administrator will need to add it to a playlist". I work for a school district and use my laptop at work so I figured I got that message because YouTube is blocked on that network. But, when I got home, I was given the same message on my home network with YouTube videos. I reset Firefox and it took care of the issue until I went to work and the problem happened all over again with the same message......I tried to view the same videos on a different browser (Safari) and it worked just fine. I'm afraid if I reset Firefox again, I will have the same issue.

Ich habe Thunderbird und Firefox vor einigen Wochen deinstalliert und kann es nun nicht mehr wieder installieren. Beim Download passiert folgendes: 1. Sicherheitsüberprüfung 1-2 Minuten lang (zu lang?) 2. Extracting 3. Run as Meldung: "You may not have the nessesary permissions to use all the features of the program you are about to run. You may run this program as a different user or continue to run the program as the current user. 4a. Bei Eingabe von Run the Program as Administartor + Password erscheint die Fehlermeldung: "Anmeldung Fehlgeschlagen: unbekannter Benutzername oder falsches Kennwort" (beide korrekt!) 4b. Bei Eingabe von Run as current user passiert NICHTS MEHR

In Foren ist das Problem bekannt aber der Hinweis auf alte Profile bringt mich nicht weiter, da kein Ordner Mozilla Firefox existiert bzw eine Profile Datei oder der Profilemanager auffindbar sind. Es existiert noch ein Ordner MozBackup (hier gibt es ein File Default.mozprofile) und den Ordner Mozilla Thunderbird der bis auf eine Date nsIQTScriptablePlugin.xpt leer ist.

Eine Bereinigung es Rechners mit ccCleaner wurde durchgeführt ( nach Auftreten des Problems) Das gleiche Problem tritt beim Installieren von Thunderbird auf, aber nicht bei anderen Programmen.

Ich hoffe jemand kann mir helfen.

There are so many useless replies in other postings that didn't work that I decided to write the manual method for removal. Wading thru a confusing pile of posts is absurd. I hope this posts makes it easier for people trying to remove it.

First, the removal tool at AVG Secure Search doesn't work. It is bs. They even say it may take multiple reboots before it is removed. That is absurd.

Here is manual removal method.

0) Take note of the exact day and time AVG was installed. Write it down.

1) Stop ?ToolBarUpdate process

2) Delete AVG Secure Search directory in

  Program Files (86x)
  Program Files (86x)\Common
  ProgramData
  ProgramData\Common


3) Do a find in regedit. Delete any major entry containing "AVG Secure Search".

4) Search your local drive for any remaining file created around time that AVG program was installed. Look at properties attributes for the file. See if it is created by AVG. Delete it if so.

  There may be an avg@toolbar directory left also.

5) You may as well remove anything in Firefox as well. Check the directories again 24 hours later to make sure the AVG Secure Search doesn't exist or didn't reinstall

You should be done

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 recently removed : downloadandSa from my desktop via ccleaner. I didnt think it didnt anything and it just looked suspicious.

Now however I notive that in the top left corner of firefox I have the F from my flashblock appearing.. when i hover over it it says its' http://downloadandsave-a.akamaihd.net/

Browsing a bit learned that akamaihd is a bunch of stuff that supports the internets workflow in videos/chats/forums etc.. is this correct?

Is this dowloadandsa a part of firefox? How do i get it back if i need it?

I am running Firefox 15.0.1 on Windows 7 64-bit I have Java plugin version SE7 U7, which I reinstalled and confirmed is current. However, when the Java plugin (Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U7 10.7.2.11) is disabled, then I get message when checking my plugins, "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version". When I re-enable this plugin, the error message is not present. Thus it is misleading as the correct version is installed but disabled.
