Okay. A few days ago, I suddenly began having issues with Firefox crashing every time I try to save any sort of file. It doesn't matter the type - image, file, etc.

I have tried everything I can find in the forums and troubleshooting sections.

I started Firefox in safe mode. Still crashed. I reset it. Still crashed. I rolled back to an earlier version. Still crashed. I deleted Firefox and did a clean install. Still crashed. I have checked for updates on all the plugins/add-ons/extensions. Still crashed. I updated my graphics drivers. Still crashed.

I can't even include a link to the most recent crash report because every time it crashes, I get a message that Firefox had a problem submitting the crash report. I'm out of ideas at this point. I have a lot of extensions installed and enabled, but even fresh from the new reinstall, before I added any of them back, the browser would crash whenever I tried to save anything.

Please help!

duplicate of /questions/1038370

The latest update of Firefox installed Foxydeal without my permission!!! Please inform me immediately how to remove this program. It is unwanted, intrusive, bothersome and slows down my computer! Up until now, I have loved using Firefox, if this is the way they are going to operate, I will use some other program.

Some how I stepped in it. I tried Control Panel, TaskManager & RegEdit and it is still there. I had FireFox as my default browser & IE as a back up. Thiis only attacked FireFox. I uninstalled FireFox and it attacked IE. There is an option where you can run IR with no add-ons & that is what I'm using now. How do I get rid of blockandsurf so that I can re-install FireFox?

My wife's desktop pc was hit by what I'd call "A Super Bundle" which unleashed total havoc on her pc. It took me a great deal of work 2 full days chasing down all the crap this apparent harmless download created. My approach; I'd describe it as it was like pealing back layers of an onion until everything was removed. Or to return her machine back as close to normal as I could. One of the "Leftovers" from this attack is something called; www-searching.com which has hijacked all the browsers on her computer. Nothing has worked I mean nothing. A lot of time and a great deal of effort has gone into destroying this menace now I'm asking for help.

Thanks for your time. Doug Sr.

Hi,

Each time I start Firefox I get a warning pop-up from malwarebytes advising me of an outbound request from Firefox to a malicious site "bestwaytosearch.com". I have checked the home page settings and reset it, checked the search engines along with add-in and extensions. I have also cleared the history and browsing cache but just can not get rid of it.

Yes I can exclude it but that would only mask the problem.

Regards Ian

I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

I can't use firefox at the moment because when I open it, multiple tabs open, all with the same spoken message telling me I have a problem & to phone a support number. The web address is http://attention.inugq.netdna-cdn.com/LP0501_UK/index.html I have tried uninstalling Firefox & running adware cleaners & also done a full boot-time scan but when I download Firefox again & open it, exactly the same problem persists. This is not a problem on Internet explorer or Chrome.

I have submitted this question using Chrome because my Firefox is unuseable.

Hello, I cam home from work, the computer was logged off from prior evening, however, it was up and running with a PC Cleanup type site I had never seen before running scans! I always default to Mozilla Firefox, but now it defaults to Palikan.com for a search engine and not firefox. What happened? and how can I remove Palikan.com? I went to the Control Panel to see about removing the new program and it is not listed in programs. They say virus sites dont detect because it attaches to a already trusted program...but it knocked Firefox out. Your Logo is still avail to click on, but Palikan starts up. I pasted the link below. Please advise and assist. Thank you in advance. Lillie G. C.

I've got a cache problem that's probably a simple fix but driving me crazy, I open a browser, any browser like firefox or internet explorer etc.. and all have the same problem, first time it searches fine, and any more searches on that same page work fine, but if i open a new tab or close and reopen the browser i get no search results at all unless i clear the cache only for firefox or the temporary internet files and website file option in internet explorer, then click home page and i can search again, but opening a new tab or closing and reopening browser causes same issue to return every time. i have tried everything from flushing dns and renew and release ect. to reinstalling browsers and i even reinstalled windows in the end :( but even then with nothing installed but windows and basic motherboard drivers installed it still did it, the only other thing i had installed was avg zen which i now removed and use avira instead. i have also checked for disk errors and memory errors.. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Dear sirs, In my computer is running Windows XP, for example, to be able to use old AutoCAD software, I do not want to change, but I have downloaded the servicepack3 to it and then using Firefox, right from the time I connect,a variety of annoying ads and even pages loaded up, I do not even clicked on it. Initially, I thought that a virus might have infected my computer, I think this was solved. After that, I started to use the Opera browser and under it was not be made these very annoying, disturbing phenomena, so I think that Mozilla Firefox is under an attack on side and I wanted to indicate it to You.
