Youtube and homepage issues

Posted

Hi!

I have an Acer laptop with Windows 8 on it, and I'm running the latest version of Firefox. Since the last update I have encountered a number of issues. (I have no idea how the images are going to be uploaded, but I'll try to make it clear)

1st issue Youtube and Vimeo. Whenever I try to watch a video in Fullscreen, it won't go completely fullscreen. This does not happen with Dailymotion.

2nd issue My homepage isn't really working. I've set www.google.hu as my homepage, but it won't load. Also, a new search engine has made it's way into my browser, and it is really annoying. It automatically changes my homepage to Websearches, and switches my default search engine from Google to Websearcher.


For some reason I can't upload the images now, but I'll try later.
