I inadvertantly clicked on a window which downloaded Toggle search engine which placed a toolbar on Firefox 3.5.5 and has replaced the 'standard' Firefox-Google home page. I deleted Toggle from manage search engine options and delted the Toggle files in windows explorer on my 'C' hard drive, and uninstalled firefox 3.5.5 and then reinstalled Firefox 3.5.5, but the Toggle Toolbar returns to Firefox home page.

How can I eliminate the Toggle files or uninstall as there is no uninstall option that I can find.

idk why or when this started happening but it sure is annoying. mozilla will do fine on one page. be running for hours at sometimes. than the second you go and look for another page. bam right in the middle of loading it will basically freeze. get a thinking curser and try and click on something. the not responding message comes up on the top. i then have to go so far as to open task manager and end it all together and start it back it. i wanna say it has something to do with adobe or maybe something else but i cant seem to find or fix it. (have gotten rid of adobe at one time and didnt fix my prob) have deleted mozilla and reinstalled. did not work. clear my cache. i have scanned my computer for virus's and malware, bots that sort of thing. im really about to try and find another browser if i cant figure this out soon. most of my crash reports have the letter bp at the beginning if that means anything. on average i have to do this 5 times a day. sometimes more depending on usage. id say 3-4 months have been doing this and finally fed up probably sent over a few hundred crash reports and i check my email and have never gotten an answer.

When starting Firefox it first offers me an option box to do things like reset my preferences, turn on my addons, etc. or continue in safe mode. If I make a selection I am offered a chance to restart Firefox, which it then does fine. But when I start Firefox again, it does the same thing.

The only reason I keep using Internet Explorer is because Firefox doesn't allow you to push shift+enter when typing in an adress that's in your history. Please change this.

In Internet Explorer when you start typing in a web page address, it pops up with history and lets you push shift+enter to go to that page, rather than finish typing the … (read more)
