I need to download the full version of Firefox files to be copied to a flash or other drive then installed on a machine which only has dial up internet access. The dial up takes too long to download the files necessary for the installation.

About an hour ago, my keyboard layout changed (but only when using firefox) so that, for example, Shift+2 no longer produces @, but rather double quotes ("). Also, pressing the [ key now produces nothing, but the next key I hit after it will produce a hat. Example, the [ key and a g will give ^g. There are other peculiarities, such as the / key now shows é, and a few others.

Everything I check on the internet seems to be telling me the problem lies in my keyboard layout settings in Windows, and possibly having to press LeftAlt+LeftShift (or just Alt+Shift) to readjust them, or bringing up the language bar, etc. But all of my efforts to fix language indicate to me that I'm currently operating with a US keyboard layout (which is what it`s supposed to be), and again, this ONLY happens in firefox and no other programs.

Any ideas?

A few minutes ago I got a warning from Windows Defender saying that I had a virus. I had removed the virus and when I went on Mozilla FireFox and it said that it couldn't connect because it was either the proxy settings or my Internet Connection. I had just reset my proxy settings on Internet Explorer and it was restored on Mozilla Firefox. I just want to know if there is any way to fix these on Mozilla Firefox. This had happened before because I remember resetting my settings.

When I open up Mozilla Firefox the home page has been changed from "comcast.net" to "http://home.mywebsearch.com/index... Is this from Firefox? What happened to my homepage? What is this page, and how do I go back to the home page comcast.net? Who is "Mindspark" since it says it's the owner of the site when I click for more details. It says if you want to uninstall this just go to the "start" menu, "control panel" and "add/remove program" and select "MyWebSearch Bar" but this is not listed to add or remove. Can you tell me what happened and how to get my home page back? Thank you.

Firefox opens new tabs to spam sites randomly?

I've looked into this, but it's not the redirect virus that sends to to a different spam site, and it doesn't happen when I refresh or open a new tab myself. Every 15 minutes to hour Firefox opens a new tab by itself sending me to a spam site(most common: Earn a living online ads and those sites that have a pop up asking if you really want to leave). I'm not sure what's causing this, and my AVG isn't detecting anything. Please help, thank you!

== I don't remember if I downloaded something, but I only download from trusted sites. About a week ago is when this started happening.

I had just updated Firefox, I opened up Google, googled something and entered into the first webpage that came up- or tried to. What I got was a box from Firefox saying:

You have chosen to open the file

(URL of the webpage)

which is an application/octet-stream What would you like to do with this file?

          []Open With...   [Browse] (as a button)
          []Save As...
                           [Ok]              [Cancel]

This happens with every webpage that isn't from Google or Mozilla. If I hit Cancel, the webpage won't load, if I select Save As, no program I have can open it and if I select Open With, same situation. So... what gives? What's an application/octet-stream? Why won't Firefox open webpages apart from Google or Mozilla pages (my previous version of Firefox worked fine)?
