I installed the Anti-virus program AVG not too long ago. When I open up Firefox (I have the default homepage, the one with a search bar under the Firefox symbol) and search with the search bar, It uses AVG Secure Search. I would like it to search with Google. I tried installing and then uninstalling AVG Secure Search, that didn't work. I even tried uninstalling AVG itself, but when I clicked uninstall nothing happens. But I'd like to solve my searching problem first. Please help me!

Videos that won't play, do work on other browsers like IE and Chrome so I'm assuming this is a Firefox issue

I have tried re-installing over and over again the flashplayer, i even tried rolling back to 11.3 but youtube still won't work in most videos it shows an error message saying "an error has happened please try again later"

I've tried some solutions posted before such as copying files from adobe's folder to firefox's plugins folder. but it didn't help either


I'm using windows 7 x64 firefox 16.0.1 Adobe flash player installed is (supposedly)11.4 but on adobe's check flash player version page, it won't show me the version instead a blank rectangle appears...(chrome and IE, do show it, however..stating that 11.4 is indeed the version installed)

I downloaded some program the other day but removed it again. Yet my browser opens up my new tabs with the URL: http://newtab.certified-toolbar.com/nff/?si=41460&tid=592&new=true How do I change it back?

hw acer atom cpu n270 1,6ghz 1gbram

sw os microsoft xp sp3 v2002 ff v16.0.2 (not upgradable not to v18 nor v20) several plugins (few classics, see below) and addtional components (noscript, etc.)

problems 1)can't upgrade from v16 to v18 or any other higher version; downloading and installing v18 and restarting ff does not make any change, if not resetting all options and settings; i've tried several times within months; 2) although automatic check of new versions is unticked, at launching it often starts in default modus (all resets, history deleted, default starting page, etc.) as if made an autonomous upgrade/renewal to a higher version;

couldn't find any literature or contribution, if not the one of v12-13 for xp sp1 or 2;

theory could it be that ff 16.0.2 is the real last working version for ms xp sp3?

solution what are the solutions? if above mentioned theory is true, what can i do? at what stage is ff OS?

thanks to all foxes

I had added a couple of add ons then tried to check my email and got the message: Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. I uninstalled all the add ons and still can not get in my email. The email loads fine in internet explorer.

Firefox keeps crashing/freezing becomes sluggish when playing a flash video. I will still be able to watch the video but I can not kill the tab without going into the task manager and killing either flash or Firefox. Firefox works perfectly when running early versions of Flash 10, but certain websites are requiring Flash 11.4 to run. I have disabled hardware acceleration in both flash and firefox and still fails to work properly.
