Signing in to my AtomicBobs website returned a "Server not found" error for my desktop.

Followed some of the FAQ suggestions and reset Firefox but still had the problem.

Checked McAfee, and cannot find a reason for blockage there.

Ran Firefox in Safe Mode and the was able to log in to the website. However, after restarting Firefox in regular mode, my sign in is still valid, but when I try to post a message, I get the "Server not found" error again.

Thought this was my desktop, so I tried my laptop with the same problem.

Up until 2-3 weeks ago, I have never had a problem with this website either on my desktop or laptop.

Also, the website works in IE, but Firefox is my preferred browser.

What's changed?

I asked Mozilla NOT TO SAVE a PASSWORD several times, and now I want to save the password for my email account. I've DELETED the site from my SAVED PASSWORDS page. There is nothing in my EXCEPTIONS PAGE stored either. So, I go to that email page & when asked to save the password, I say YES. It saves it in the list, but does not automatically populate when I wish to LOG IN to my email page. I wind up TYPING it every time, and I've realized it is time consuming. PLEASE TELL ME how I can FIX this problem. Kind Regards, Chris

Hello,

I am having some issues using any google related websites. Sometimes when I try to perform a search on google, or load a video on youtube, it simply wont load anything. At first I tought I had internet issues, but I dont not. As soon as Firefox wont load Youtube or perform a search on google, if I try this at Chrome I can do it with no problems. So the problem is in Firefox, since at Chrome and IE there are no issues at all.

I have all my plugins updated on Firefox. Anyone could help me regarding this issue?

In C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there is one profile (qanl58lx.default) and my extensions is in the profile folder, but in Firefox options/extensions there are none. This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Hey Guys & Gals,

My Windows 8.1 pc Firefox has been hijacked by bing.

I have paid malwarebytes and scans clean. I have no Adaware or web companion install. Virus protection scan clean as well.

I opened firefox about:config and search for bing and sure enough its listed there 3 times.

browser.search.order.2 default string Bing browser.search.order.US.2 default string data:text/plain,browser.search.order.US.2=Bing' browser.translation.engine default string bing

Can I just delete the values from those 3 sections?

Thanks in advance Grendor

I read the information given on the site about enabling Java Script, but it does not work. Under my tools/options menu, the site's instructions say to click on Firefox. There is no title of Firefox in my options box. Going through the list of General, Tabs, Content, Applications, Privacy, Security, Sync and Advanced, there is nothing under any of them titled Preferences or any box that says to enable anything. How do I enable Javascript for Firefox 33?

Part of my living is reviewing YouTube videos- I can't play any without this. Please help me. Thank you

01.12.15 Firefox freezing mostly when utilizing bookmark features

Firfox freezing seems to be a widespread issue with firefox, since looong time without a real solution. Simply searching for "freeze": among so many others, also with Thunderbird(wher I never ever noticed any frezzes, so far: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1082233 I "solved", no, I hide it by entering a system varibale to suppress message (like blind the warning lamp an th alarm panel, or what)

https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1073963 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1068669 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1079575 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1090889 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1086151 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1072930 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1096059 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1094223 "Large Cache wit FF"? BTW, This is another example whot to "solve" an issue by "disable this and disable that" Hey guys, are you doing this when you buy your car? disable the breaks, when the make noise? Or disable a warning light? For me, that is not a "solution". Not even a workaround!


I personally have very rarely noted any freezes/crashes related to videos/flash sites with my pc

After trying all mentionend workarounds, even crating a new user profile in WIN 81, I face Freeze-issues - not each time, but randomly - when - click into FF window after PC sleep mode - click on bookmark symbol(star) to set a bm - click on tab to "add bookmarks for all tabs.." - switching between FF windows.

I use bm feature quite extensively, I read several news pages one by one, each time I open it in a new window and open interesting links in new tabs, at the end I save all tabs to bookmarks [ newspaper_date ] and finally delete history/all cookies.

I am running adblockplus, noscript and ghostery-add on, thus avoiding any flash advertisement or movie to be downloaded/started automatically

I rarely see any videos, so far I have not found any relation between looking some videos and a freeze.

As mentioned an other question, I will observe this issue by building a new bookmark database.

It could be a false positive. I just want to make sure before I mark it as an exception. It says that a potentially unsafe application attempted to change or delete my files. Targeted folder was c:\users\user name. c:\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe was blocked. Why would it be flagged if it is legit ?
