When I open a webpage which is in French, how can I get Firefox to askme if I want the webpage translated into English? Firefox used to open a strip at the top of the webpage which allowed me to click yes to translate the page. Firefox 3.6.13 does not do this now. I have found that Translation Add-On's do not do the trick easily. Any ideas please?

Locked due to age. If you still have a problem, please start a new thread

Basically the Google redirect virus is caused by a trojan with rootkit capability, and so whenever I click on a link on Google, it redirects me to a completely unrelated site. I think I got it on there because of downloading pirated software (patches, cracks, keygens) to avoid paying: so stealing software didn't pay off :(

I know you guys aren't specialised in internet security, but can you help?

I often need to duplicate a tab but I cannot do so quickly in Firefox. I can copy the link, open a new tab and paste the link, but a simple shortcut in the 'right click' menu of the tabs would be nice. IE8 has this feature (Ctrl+K).

My tech guy says my Firefox has been hijacked - I couldn't even get to your website. When I google something, no matter what I click on, it goes somewhere else. It even happened when I went to click open an email - a new tab opened with this awful thing in it. Oh, and another thing: when it takes you to the bad website, you can't click on the back button to get back to wherever it was you were. You have to close the entire tab.

I never save passwords - never have, never will. Using evil IE, Gmail works correctly in that it prompts me for ID and password for each new browser instance. Yet when I open gmail with FF, it goes straight to my inbox without prompting for ID or password. I use gmail in "always secure" mode. Cookies are enabled, of course, just did not expect my password to be saved and loaded from a cookie. How can I rectify this problem?

I am trying to configure Firefox so I can use my CAC card reader with it. My problem is when I try to load a module under Tools>Options>Advanced>Encryption>Security Devices. When I try to load acpkcs201.dll (or any of the other alternate .dll files) I get an error message that says "Unable to load module".

When I try to use the DoD Configuration 1.2 add-on from forge.mil, it also is unable to make this configuration.

The CAC reader and software works fine under Chrome and IE. The only problem is the .dll wont load up in Firefox using the add-on or manually.

Does anyone know how to make this module load properly?

I am using: Windows 7 x64 Firefox 3.6.9 SCR331 card reader ActivClient 6.2
