10/4/2014 Thank you Cor-el for your rapid response to my original question. I do believe I downloaded the Places Maintenance add on. But I have no idea as to how to access that add on and run it, if that's what I should do. I did try to restore a backed up HTML bookmark file. This seems to have changed the "wrong" URL that I get to a different wrong URL. Thanks.

There was some chatter about surfvox from May to June as a browser hijack, it's gone way beyond that on 09/28/14. Once infected, it wouldn't let me get to self help sites to fix the problem. It would also prevent the use of system tools to clean up the problem.

I had to go back to the Vista install disc to get to a restore point. It seems to be gone now. Surfvox seems to be much nastier now than a few months ago.

I have been using Firefox and it used to ask me if I wanted to save a download or open it. Now, when it is a PDF it automatically downloads. I don't need all of these downloads on my computer. When I go to Options, I have checked the box that says "Always Ask Me Where to Save Files". I only want to open downloads, not save them.

So I Force Quit, open FF again, and delete half the tabs... then it locks up... so I delete half of the rest.... then it locks up... Maybe after several iterations I get lucky & it restores a couple tabs.

Ab-so-USELESS.

WHY CAN'T FIREFOX HANDLE THE RE-OPENING OF TABS WITHOUT CRASHING ITSELF !!!!!

Hello, I am using Firefox 32.0.3. There used to be a drop down search engine menu on Firefox. Has it been removed from the latest version or is there some settings adjustment I can make to get it back? Thanks for any feedback.
