Why do I get redirected to a Yahoo DNS error page every time an ad fails to load in a website?

DNS Solution Yahoo Error Handler https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/errorhandler?hspart=gt&hsimp=yhse-gt&q=(URL of the page I wanted) Search query We did not find results for because SafeSearch is active and your query contains some restricted word(s). Try the suggestions below or type a new query above. To search for , change your SafeSearch preferences.

This just recently started popping up when I load some news sites. It seems to load the article, and then an ad comes in and causes the page to redirect to this error handler. Yahoo is not even my default search. I can usually hit the back button and get the site I wanted, but it's extremely annoying and I don't know what causes it.

How do I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

It isn't in the File or Tools menu. I get nothing when searching help. Yet FF knows how to do it, say when updating extensions.

I know I can do it by saving my session, exiting, restarting and restoring the session But is there a single command to do all that?

Thanks. --David

Firefox stopped working on one computer. When I click the Firefox icon it says "cannot find the Mozilla runtime" this has happened several times in the past and each time I just did a free Firefox download again and it fixed the problem, now when I try to do the free Firefox download internet explorer says it cannot display the webpage. I have tried to do a free Firefox download on all three computers in my office and get the same message even on two computers where Firefox is working properly.

Hello; I'm trying to access my email on Hughesnet, and all I get is a blank page. Here's the link: http://mail.hughes.net/zimbra/ The parent page is: http://home.myhughesnet.com/ All other sites & Firefox have been working well, and this is my first attempt to access this particular site. I tried turning off my AV protection, which accomplished nothing. Any ideas would definitely be appreciated All the best, Steve

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has recently stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

I've re-set network.http.speculative-parallel-limit to 0 and then set it to 6 and 10, with no difference. Re-starting the browser makes no difference.

browser.search.suggest.enabled = true browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark = true browser.urlbar.suggest.history = true browser.urlbar.suggest.history.onlyTyped = false browser.urlbar.suggest.openpage = true browser.urlbar.suggest.searches = false

I've been having problems with Javascript seeming to just quit working after the browser has been running for a while over the last several updates, which affects things like comment loading on some sites, Java-based menus not working, etc. but I don't know if that would be related to this problem. A re-start didn't solve things in this case, not today anyway.

My recent migration to Windows 10 went without a hitch. Then Firefox had upgrades and security updates. In this process all add-ons were disabled and cannot be activated. I get a script issue notification occasionally. Also Private Window won't work. Are these issues likely to be resolved soon or do I have to take some further action?

Nothing I do will fix this, the auto update button on the diagnostic page, uninstall and reinstall shockwave, nothing - and though users seem to repeatedly have this problem with every version of flash for at least the last 2 years from scouring this website through Google, not ONE single response to any of the threads has actually been helpful in resolving this. What the hell is going on with ff and why isn't it recognizing the updated version of Shockwave and/or flash for certain people?

After upgrade to v41.0 my Macbook has been hanging. My suspicions point towards the latest version upgrade. Reset FF but ReportCrashes persist. Console errors show many Firefox events such as :

9/27/15 10:44:34.000 kernel[0]: process firefox[527] caught causing excessive wakeups. Observed wakeups rate (per sec): 203; Maximum permitted wakeups rate (per sec): 150; Observation period: 300 seconds; Task lifetime number of wakeups: 861663

9/27/15 10:44:34.047 ReportCrash[643]: Invoking spindump for pid=527 wakeups_rate=203 duration=222 because of excessive wakeups


What needs to be reconfigured to reduce wakeup events?
