In Blackboard I need Firefox to not open a new tab. Before the last update it was fine, but now when I click on a new choice (i.e. the grade book) it always opens a new tab. My Bb administrator says it is a browser issue. I can right click to open a new tab, but there is no choice not to open a new tab.

Every now an then, since about a year ago, when I try to open a link from Google search results in FF, a web-page appears instead in the form of a virus (but it's not) with a popup window saying "Dear Firefox user, You are our lucky visitor ..." After that, I have to restart FF, otherwise this "thing" goes on. This last time I copied the URL (unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot!), which was http://vacationdestination.org/maintenance/-/price/-/Deal848. However, it seems it's a fake one, since I could not open it again. (not even just 'http://vacationdestination.org'). I have done a virus check and nothing was detected. Also, opening FF in safe mode doesn't help, since as I said this "thing" is quite occasional and *not repeatable*. I would like please to know if someone has had *the same exact problem* and has solved it. Please don't reply by giving general suggestions like "open in safe mode", "do a virus scan" etc.

When browsing, a Yahoo popup often appears asking to add a yahoo extension. I do not want the extension but that option is not given. All I can do is close the popup only to have it reappear a few clicks later. How do I get this popup to stop? I have the 'block popups' box checked in preferences.

Firefox v40.0.3, Win7 64-bit SP1 and up-to-date.

Somehow, probably due to a recent software install, Yahoo has hijacked my new tab behavior and I can no longer get to the New Tab tiles that I could do before when I create a new tab or new window (ctrl-t or ctrl-n). I have:

1. Changed the about:config browser.newtab.url entry to about:newtab; it was www.yahoo.com. 2. Removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and ensured that Google was at the top. 3. Followed the process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page but I cannot find the cog icon on the New Tab page since I can't get a tab with the tiles (i.e. I can find the New Tab controls referred to on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-sites-new-tab-page).

I would really like my tiles back.

The title says it all. I blocked Flash Player under Permissions, but the ads still run, consuming 10-50% of CPU, making the fan go crazy. Even after I reload the page, or exit and log back in.

Yes it's an old computer with limited RAM, but it serves me well on every other site.

Any suggestions? Why are Permissions not working? Thanks.

The full ad is this"Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at famousadage.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is....

Anyway, it takes you to go.daddy where the site has been parked. How can this ad be gotten rid of because when I first saw the ad I wasted sometime because I thought it was a advisory regarding my Firefox browser. OK How do we get rid of this ad?

Yes I already tried the keyword search bla bla bla, I tried deleting and redownloading as well. I don't understand why people use Yahoo, probably the worst search engine out there...

I tried everything on the internet and still it uses yahoo as the search engine. The worst part is when I try to use yahoo, it gives me bullshit sites that I've never dreamed clicking on, I work as a GM at a hotel, and it really does not help that I'm using the same search engine as my grandmother.

Aside from being incapable of completing searches relevant to your query, Yahoo! And Microsoft work together. That should tell you what maximum quality output you're going to get some such an un-evolved, unintelligent search engine.

Yahoo must be the most stupid search engine ever. Yeah, Google for life indeed!...


Bing is bad, but by God Yahoo is by far the WORST!

Among other things (popup login windows, etc), Firefox won't show CAPTCHA images even after a fresh install with all default settings. I tried cleaning my computer with the recommended spyware / adware removal programs (AdwCleaner and Kapersky) and one of them did the trick for about an hour, but then Firefox went back to not showing the CAPTCHAs again. Is there a permanent fix for this?

I encounter several pop-ups on a regular basis. Not only do they redirect me when clicking links, they can appear from clicking almost anywhere. I get links related to Star Trek, Fire Fox, & Flash most often. I have uninstalled Fire Fox, and deleted all the related folders I could find, as well as registry entries, and I've ran virus/spyware scans, but they never stop. I always run Ad Block Plus, as well. This handful of ads are the only ones it doesn't seem to detect.

I cleared my browsing history and have the weather network as my home page. I updated Firefox and now the homepage seems to be a list rather than a web page, PLUS, I get a Google ad on it. Google then forces several steps to kill the ad and clicking on any of the Weather network page hotlinks brings another Google ad. I have Google Chrome also installed, but am not using it. Why is all this happening?

I tried reloading Firefox and searching the registry for the Yahoo URL to no avail.

What keeps changing my home page to Yahoo? I searched my PC for SPIGOT to no avail either. Anyone else have this problem? More to the point, anyone know what causes the home page to be reset to Yahoo after it is reset in Options to the original home page? There are similar questions on htis website, but no answers to my specific problem.
