More Information

I tried setting up a new profile and the new profile did not do it but I do not want to go through the hassle of moving all the old info to the new profile. I do not have any plug ins for Bing but also not sure if it is a plug in that goes by a name I was not familiar with. I don't remember adding any plug ins for the past couple of months, maybe longer.

See:


Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
