I emptied my cache.  I rebooted Firefox.  This is my email website - never had a problem before.  I am able to access it on Safari.  I even tried the simple address (rather then my bookmarked login address) - still got the same error message!

With a Java update my Firefox starting site has been hijacked by Ask Toolbar, indicating itself as my standard search tool instead of the Google, which was my choice. How do I remove it?. I cannot find the name Ask Toolbar in my Windows list of programs. And it is not shown as a part of Java, so I can find no way to delete it. Are there any other names of programs that might cover for Ask? I have tried to remove Java, and then reinstall it, carefully removing the x for Ask. It did not help, Ask is still dominating the starting site, and claims to be my standard. It is so annoying! My system is Windows 7. I hope for help...

How can I fully remove MyStart by IncrediBar from Firefox and my computer?

I have no idea how MyStart by IncrediBar got on to my computer. Initially, it hijacked my browser, where upon opening Firefox (8.01) it re-directed my homepage to a MyStart search page. I have never intentionally allowed MyStart, IncrediBar, or IncrediMail into my system.

Using the Control Panel (Vista Home Premium – 64-bit), I uninstalled the program. Then, I went into Firefox Options and disallowed and/or deleted all references to these programs. I also reset my homepage to where I had previously set it to be. I tried to do a System Restore twice, but each time it failed, returning a message indicating that “An unspecified error occurred during System Restore.” I did a complete system scan with Norton 360, which turned up nothing.

Now, my homepage opens to my desired site and MyStart no longer shows up as a search engine choice in the upper-right search box, but when opening Firefox, a second tab immediately opens with the MyStart search page and the url “http://mystart.incredibar.com/?a=6Oyn8n6bDE&i=26.” I also have Internet Explorer 9 on my pc. I was able to completely remove MyStart from that browser. I have searched the Firefox Help website and applied all suggested tactics noted there (including the suggestion from kevinsenjaya regarding about:config), but still have the problem.

I would appreciate guidance on two items: (1) Should I be concerned that my computer is no longer secure because of MyStart and (2) How do I prevent MyStart from automatically opening each time I open Firefox?

Thanks for your help. Don

I dont have a toolbar, it does not hijack my homepage. But everytime I open a new tab (which was always blank) I get a stupid bing search bar. That is the only place it shows up, but it is sooo annoying because I always go straight to typing whatever url I a going to, and this bar changes my cursors postion to it. How do I get rid of it?

I have looked in plugins/extensions. It is not there. I have looked in program files, and in control panel -> programs. Nothing there either. I even went into about:config and reset everything that had a bing value. Still having the problem. What else is there to try?

While doing a routine plugin check for latest versions here, I got the message that a newer version of the Microsoft Silverlight plugin was available from Microsoft. When I tried to download the installation executable from Microsoft, the download managed to lock up Firefox each time I attempted it (about 5 times or so) -- in the process, the file I was automatically given to download was identified as a 64 bit executable, despite the fact that Firefox 8.0.1 is a 32-bit application (I do have the 64 bit version of Windows 7 Professional). At this point, I don't know which version of the newer plugin I need, nor how to get it. Help!

I use mozilla to open internet and suddenly in the search engine box at top it brings me to Babylon.com which I have never seen before. I uninstalled the program through the control panel but it still appears when I open mozilla. I do not trust it and I think it is affecting my hotmail as when I sign in it will not allow mw to delete messages or signout using the signout button which I always wish to do. I do not like to just close page. The sign in page keeps flashing as connecting at the top left of the computer, rather than just saying connected.

Is autocomplete data editable? These days you have to fill out everything down to your inside leg measurement just to ask a simple question and it has gone from a nice to an essential feature. There is a lot of old data that could be deleted or updated.
