I had Google as my home page and when I would open a new tab it's blank but when I updated my Divx player it set Bing as my homepage and loaded Bing when I open a new tab. I have Google as my homepage and it comes up when I open a new window but when I open a new tab it still goes to Bing. How do I disable this so a blank page comes up again?

I've read many other posts on this issue, don't seem to find a solution. So I have to ask. . I'm wanting a different default zoom level other than 100%. I understand Websites create their websites to generic 100%. I have UnTicked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above",... but this still is not enough to "Have it my way". I have scoured "about:config" for ZOOM and changed many settings to (for say) 115% and this includes removing the 100% from the 3 lists of zoom levels... but oddly it still defaults to 100%. LASTLY: I am trying to do my best to keep ADD-ONS to a minimum, requiring the installation of yet another ADD-ON seems counterproductive. . It seems it be easier to have an eye transplant than getting a simple default zoom of my choice. .

Downloaded VLC Web Plugin Version 2.0.5.0 and rebooted and restarted Firefox. Firefox Plug Ins still shows old version 2.0.2.0. When I check Firefox for latest version is says 2.0.2.0 is the latest and I'm up to date.

When I open VLC as a standalone it comes up as version 2.0.5.0.

Why is Firefox not incorporating the correct version?

Over the weekend, Yahoo has somehow been made my default homepage. When I go to Preferences and change it to my desired homepage, it only works for the next launch - then it reverts back to Yahoo. So I uninstalled Firefox and downloaded a new copy. Same thing, so apparently it's a moderation you have made to your browser.

I do not like this. If you don't tell me how to permanently remove Yahoo as my default page, and allow me to PERMANENTLY decide for myself what my default homepage is, I will stop using Firefox altogether, even if it until now has been my favorite browser.

I am on an iMac running OS X 10.6.8

Shockwave Flash was causing my browser 40.0.3 to start videos I did not want to play, I added an add-on to block Shockwave Flash; however, this became very cumbersome to enable and disable when i go to sites that required Flash like a greeting card site. I found another add-on called "Video without Flash", it told me to remove "shockwave Flash" I did, now I can not get any video on the greeting card site. Is the problem that I removed Shockwave Flash or something else, I have the latest Flash Player from Adobe.

I need some help.

Firefox Menu Bar

I am new to Linux but have been using Firefox for Windows for almost ten years. I now want to use Firefox Desktop, Version 26 (I think) in Linux (Ubuntu).

I cannot get the Menu Bar (File, Edit, Help, etc.) to show. In Firefox support, in the section “Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars”, it states: “Most toolbars can be shown or hidden depending on your needs. To show or hide a toolbar, right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip and check or uncheck it in the pop-up menu. Menu Bar: This toolbar at the top of the Firefox window contains the browser menus (File, Edit, Help, etc.). Hiding the Menu Bar will make the Firefox button appear which contains a simplified menu.”

When I right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip, all I get is options for the Navigation Toolbar, the Bookmarks Toolbar, and the Add-on Bar; no Menu Bar option. Also, since my Menu Bar is “hidden,” I can't find the Firefox button which contains a simplified menu. What does the Firefox button look like?

When I go to support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox and try to download Firefox 26 I'm told that "Congrats! You’re using the latest version of Firefox."

Since I presume my Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox can be updated only when an updated package is released, I checked for distro updates and there were none at all. Do I have to wait for a Linux update?

I certainly will appreciate any help.

Hi, My Firefox plug-in check is telling me that there is an update for Java, but when I visit the link it's still taking me to the old update (the Java 7 update 9). Also, according to the Java test page, Java 7u9 is still showing that it's the latest...it says I have the recommended version.

Is there an newer update somewhere?

Thanks.

Hi,

Where does Mozilla Firefox saves the files from add-ons? Don't know if it is from Windows update or from Firefox update, but my add-ons settings keeps on resetting and I lose a lot of data from them because of that. And if I know where Firefox saves those files, then I can make a backup for them.

Many versions ago I customized the background color if none was given to a brown to go with the skin I was using then.

Now I find displaying a simple text file is unreadable with unbolded black against the brown, but I cannot find in today's version where to set it back to white (or at least a pale color).

Any help appreciated.

I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new pdf.js viewer. On my machine (6 yr old HP running Windows XP with sp 3) it displays slower than Acrobat Reader did, and I was perfectly happy with Acrobat Reader plugin. Frankly I want to disable pdf.js, but haven't been able to figure a way to do it. It doesn't display anywhere I could find on Add-ons Manager. I don't want to be compelled to use a feature that seems to be a performance detriment, at least for me. Mozilla, please rethink this!
