I installed something and it changed my home page to bing AND whenever I click the button to open a new tab it goes to a site http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3281675&octid=CT3281675&SearchSource=15&CU Instead of the normal options for new tabs, like recent pages visited. I uninstalled the stupid entrusted add-on and I reset my home page to what I wanted, but I can't get rid of the new tab opening option to that site instead of the default. Can someone please help me fix it.

I would like to do a TOTAL RESET TO DEFAULT of all settings in FF20. I have had nothing but horrible problems with the new built-in PDF viewer, and despite ALL my efforts, all I can do is download the PDF instead of view it in either FF or Adobe. I am tired of fighting, the program did not need a built in PDF viewer, Acrobat was fine. You have really ruined a great product adding in stuff that duplicates other products, especially when yours in inferior to the standard. I just want my program to work right, using Acrobat 9.x as my viewer. It is set for it, buyt it will only Download the file, not open it.

Hi - I need to use Firefox because an online course only works with it. However, I will never use it for anything else unless I can get rid of Ask.com as my default address bar search. I have been through the support files and have tried everything. There is no Ask toolbar. There is no chromewebapp.sqlite file or user.js file (may be wrong on spelling as I'm doing this from memory). I reset keyword.url and changed it to http://www.google.com/search?q=. I reset that other file (something about stone...again, I'm doing this from memory!). I reset Firefox. I completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it.

I believe this is connected to Norton Safe Search. However, the Norton Toolbar is disabled and Safe Search is disabled. I did want to be able to use the Norton Toolbar and never had this problem with it in the past.

Can you help or should I just go back to using Chrome?

About an hour ago, my keyboard layout changed (but only when using firefox) so that, for example, Shift+2 no longer produces @, but rather double quotes ("). Also, pressing the [ key now produces nothing, but the next key I hit after it will produce a hat. Example, the [ key and a g will give ^g. There are other peculiarities, such as the / key now shows é, and a few others.

Everything I check on the internet seems to be telling me the problem lies in my keyboard layout settings in Windows, and possibly having to press LeftAlt+LeftShift (or just Alt+Shift) to readjust them, or bringing up the language bar, etc. But all of my efforts to fix language indicate to me that I'm currently operating with a US keyboard layout (which is what it`s supposed to be), and again, this ONLY happens in firefox and no other programs.

Any ideas?

I have a site that consistently gives "The connection was reset" every three or four clicks. Refreshing brings the page up fine. Server logs show no errors whatsoever, the hits all show 200 responses with no errors logged by back-end code. This only happens in Firefox. IE, Safari, Opera all work fine.

I've tried clearing cache, cookies, etc.

I've tried reinstalling Firefox.

I've tried reinstalling an older version of Firefox in case it's a recent bug.

I've tried disabling DNS prefetching.

I've tried just about every other remedy I can find on the internet.

Is there any kind of HTML or JavaScript that would cause the browser to throw a fit for no apparent reason?

Thanks.
