I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for years and no problem until now. Had may computer service and had to reload Firefox. When click on Firefox icon, msn opened as search. I went through several times proceeded to change search to google, but kept coming back to msn (which I hate). Finally after much try and error I got Google to come up as search, but it appears to be "home page" instead of Firefox. How can I get Firefox page back and use Google as search?

Also, is there anyway to get someone on phone when problem comes up?

The options for reducing the size of a web page are offered via the square and dash signs at the top right hand of the page. In my case the square does not work - it simply leaves the page at the original size. My only option is to use the dash which reduces the page to its minimum - an icon on the task bar.

Typically I have three Firefox windows open, each with several tabs. Firefox itself is pinned to the Windows taskbar. A few of the tabs are set to auto-reload. The be… (read more)

Typically I have three Firefox windows open, each with several tabs. Firefox itself is pinned to the Windows taskbar. A few of the tabs are set to auto-reload.

The behavior that I find strange is that the window which initially had the middle position in the task bar occasionally migrates to the first position. Can this behavior be controlled, or at least predicted?

Thanks

When I open Firefox on my homepage, there is an empty box in the middle of the screen. No script; just a bar to click on and a blank check box and a (?). Nothing works and to get out of the Firefox screen, I have to close it with the task manager. I can open in a new window and the box does not appear-that's what I'm using now. Do I have a virus? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks. Carol
