I updated java and ended up with snap.do as my search engine and home page. I researched it and found nothing good about it, a typical malware program that isn't picked up by CCleaner for some reason. It is easily uninstalled in chrome and IE but for some reason Firefox resists efforts to uninstall it. It doesn't show up in programs to uninstall, how can it be uninstalled along with all it's components and why does Firefox aid in its destructive methods by making its removal so difficult?

I recently updated to Firefox 15.0.1, and I'm having a lot of trouble with it constantly freezing. This doesn't happen on any one website and is very random in occurrence. I have already tried running in safe mode and updated flash, and I'm still having the problem. After a few seconds, it may start responding again however, most of the time it continues to hang. In order to close Firefox when this happens, I have to open task manager and end the process because nothing in the browser responds. This has become very annoying, and I would appreciate any help I can get to solve the issue. Thanks!

UPDATE: I've noticed that the freezing seems to happen every time I check my email (Yahoo & Gmail), and when I'm on Pandora. It still occurs randomly at other times, but I noticed it's very consistent with these sites.

My list of "Favories" bookmarks from Internet Explorer disappeared; I can't find them- "Import from IE" brings up an obsolete list of Favorites...how do I find

I have tried every option under all of the "Help" articles in order to find my missing bookmarks ('Favorites') from IE, and nothing has worked. When I tried "Import from IE", it loaded a list of Favorites at least a year old. I cannot find the current bookmarks which are stored in the folder "From Internet Explorer". When I click on the bookmarks icon (star) in the upper right corner, the menu no longer displays the option to select "From Internet Explorer". The only thing I have not tried is the "Restore" option available in the library window under "Import and Backup": I don't know which of the files listed would be the correct one, and the instructions caution that whatever file(s) are chosen now will replace the earlier file. I don't want to accidentally erase all of my stored bookmarks (hundreds of them), and be left with only the bookmarks that I've saved just recently - I also don't want to end up with an outdated (old) set of Favorites.

Videos from youtube, facebook, or other sites won't play. Quizzes from a learning site won't work. All play fine in Explorer. I have updated flash and java. I have disabled my add-ons.

When a video is supposed to play, I either get a screen that won't load OR....an error message saying to try again later. In youtube, I see all the thumbnail videos on the side, but can't play anything.

I'm stuck with Babylon as a homepage. I used REVO to remove the toolbar but something in the process must have gone wrong because the homepage keeps coming back. I cleaned the About:config as stated in earlier posts (mstone, homepage and new tab) and when I restart Firefox the first tab is firefox and the second babylon. When I close and startup firefox again then the first tab is babylon and I'm back to square one. The removal of the browser manager seemd too technical to me and I didn't dare to do it. Any suggestions?

I've tried clearing all my history, cookies, and everything else on Firefox, but it doesn't fix the problem.

Whenever I try to comment on a post in facebook it says "Unable to post comment." And it won't let me like any posts either.

Google Chrome works perfectly with Facebook. I don't want to quit using Firefox, but unless I get a solution soon that may be what I have to do.

Whenever I try to play a video in fullscreen the video plays normally for a few seconds but then soon becomes very choppy except when moving my mouse... which is weird. The video is fine when it's normal and not fullscreen. (Except the videos on IGN.com. Both normal and fullscreen are like that.) First time I noticed it was just a few days ago. Also it's not just one video kind of video player (like youtube's video player, Upload2, etc.) It's all of them.

This is the first time this has ever happened to me and I couldn't find anything like this through searching.
