When I start Firefox I always get Delta Homes search page. I set my home page to ABC.net.au/news/ and made sure that the Firefox starts with 'Show my home page'. However this makes no difference and I keep getting the Delta Homes page when the Firefox opens. How can I change that?

Hi, I am using Firefox 34 for Ubuntu 14.04. I tried to play the audio on google translate page, not able to hear the sound. I could see an error in developer console when I press the audio button. Attached the screen shot. Even I tried with disabling other conflicting add-ons and removing ad blocker. But still the same issue. What could be missing here? Please clarify.

Thanks Omkar

I have set a particular email site on the first tab. I know how to set or change it. Now here is my query- I wish that whenever I open a new (second and subsequent too) tab, it should always open Google to facilitate my search. If I want to change it, I will do it manually. I have also set Google as my search engine, still it does not show up automatically on opening a new tab. Pl guide.

Cannot open .pdfs in Firefox

My wife's machine is running Windows 8.1, Firefox 34.0.5 and Adobe Acrobat X Standard. Cannot open .pdfs in the browser. Clicking a link to a .pdf will open a new tab that immediately closes, leaving me right back where I was, as if I had never clicked the link. I can right click, then Save As, download the file and open in Adobe Acrobat X. But that's not what I want, and not how it was designed.

Internet Explorer 11 opens .pdfs in the environment described above, in-browser, with no problems.

I've followed all the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/972278 and http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/cant-view-pdf-web.html. Neither Mozilla's nor Adobe's instructions can get me up and running.

As a nuclear option, I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat, restarted the machine, uninstalled Firefox, restarted the machine, re-installed Adobe Acrobat, restarted the machine, and re-installed Firefox, and restarted the machine. Attempting to open any .pdf yields the same result, even after uninstalling and re-installing everything. What's going on here? Why does Firefox open a blank tab, and then close it right away? Block pop-ups is set to off, and antivirus pop-up blocking is disabled.

My own machine running Windows 7, Firefox 34.0.5, and Adobe Acrobat X Standard opens .pdfs in-browser just fine, with no problems.

Any advice? I'm pulling my hair out!! Thanks for your time.

I have dealt with this for years. I have "reset" Firefox numerous times, I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled version 16.0.0.235. After I uninstalled and updated it ran for a while but I am back to the "Flash is busy" message. The only way I can go on is to stop the plug in, or disable it, but of course then I have no video. I installed "Videowithoutflash" (I think that was the name of it listed with Firefox extension and highly reviewed, and it all ran fine for about a day. But then the next day no videos would play unless I enabled flash, and then it soon starts crashing again. This is a problem for years now. I have been through many forums trying to find an answer, nothing works, or if it does not for long. Is there not some way to get rid of Adobe Flash and play videos? Are there any browsers that don't use flash for viewing videos? Help! Thanks in advance Bill

Firefox software update appeared. I allowed it to be installed. It screwed up the search bar/box. I use to be able to click on the magnifying glass icon and ALL the search engine options would appear and I could easily chose one. It was easy. Now nothing. I cannot search anything through Firefox. Firefox is useless to me now, which means I have no computer. Do I have to go out and spend another $1000 to get a new computer? This is not right. You should not do this to a person. Not everybody is technically advanced as some of you are. Now I have no means of searching for anything using Firefox. I really liked Firefox. Now your software update messed me all up. So what am I supposed to do???????????????? IE is worthless. Not safe, not secure, can't trust it. Never works right. Can't even print out correctly. Firefox update should not have messed up my computer. I need to make searches and now I can't. I mean it, it really is not right. So, just for you so called brilliant Stanford types, when I click on the magnifying glass icon or the little, inverted triangle, there is nothing. The search bar is blank. Blank, blank, blank. No longer the quick drop down window with all the available search engine selections. Got it? That's why I've repeated myself. Have a real nice day!

No matter what website I am on, when I click on Tools, and then click on Options, Firefox freezes. I cannot refresh, I cannot close the tab, I cannot close the browser session. The session does not close when I click on the Firefox icon in the start tray and click on Close Window. The only way to get the web browser to close is to Ctrl+Alt+Del and end the task (which always shows that it is "Running"). I have waited as long as 5 minutes for the browser to Refresh or Close, and nothing happens.

Get no YouTube task bar or control bar (play pause, sound level, etc.). . just a black screen, no audio and no control bar at the bottom of the black screen.

All comments and responses to postings appear, but no way to click or start the video.

Also, on Youtube Home screen, provides the following: Hello, you seem to have JavaScript turned off. Please enable it to see search results properly.

As a result, I've updated Javascript, Flash and have made certain Javascript is ENABLED. Still no taskbar. that will enable me to play YouTube videos.

PS: HAVE TO USE Firefox 34 as ALL subsequent updateS result in the following JavaScript Application error:

'Top' getter called on an object that does not implement interface Windows

I have tried changing my default search engine away from Yahoo multiple times and it always defaults back whenever I turn my computer back on. Any tips I've looked up on the help pages have been less than worthless, and it's getting to the point where I'm considering blocking Yahoo from my computer. I have nothing against Yahoo or anything, but getting railroaded into a search engine I have EXPLICITLY STATED THAT I DO NOT WISH TO USE MULTIPLE TIMES is kind of making me averse from ever patronizing it in the future. Thanks, and I hope to hear back from you soon~! :^)

Hi, a recurrent problem - when using Firefox on my Android, websites are often displayed distorted. If I try to zoom in to increase the font or image size when reading, the screen tears and distorts, with different sections of text and images disappearing altogether (black sections of screen appear) or overlapping, often in different font sizes. The website displayed on the screen also "jumps around". The same happens if I try to select text for copying - it is either impossible to select at all, or the selection is distorted. I haven't had this problem before and noticed it only recently. Almost impossible to use the browser now! Could that be a result of an automatic software update? Please help! Thanks.
