message continued... Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct. Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working..

When I go to Tools, Options, Advanced Configure how Firefox Connects to the Internet the settings are Manual with theHTTP proxy set to 127.0.0.1 Port 50687.  Then it says No Proxy for localhost 127.0.01.  In order to do anything I change the setting to Autodetect, but it keeps switching back.  Please tell me what to do.  

The only other thing I did today was to run a Malwarebytes scan that found some bad files and they were quarantined/deleted. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it.

It appears I somehow got upgraded to the newest version of firefox. And everytime I try to clear the history it freezes. Then I get errors... Something about a script... or the program will just say "not responding"

Can this be fixed? If not can I download an older version which worked?

how to remove internet download manager from Firefox

Whatever you do DON'T install internet download manager, this software may not be a virus but it is virus like. It completel takes over your PC. Within 2 minutes of install it launched a windows explorer session that was taking up 55% of system resouces on a very powerful PC with loads of memory and turned the PC into an 8088 based IBM PC (showing my age).

I terminated it from Start manager and got enough resources (just) to run control panel to uninstall this think. However it is a nasty critter, it is still embedded in Firefox but launches errors every time there is a potential file to download and it does it a lot.

There is not uninstall option, just a disable, but when you restart Firefox it still says it will be disabled after reboot (done 3 times now).

So it is a system restore or open heart surgery on Firefox.

Can anyone give me any idea how to get rid of this AWFUL software.
