I have uninstalled and reinstalled the current (as of 6/22/13) flash plugin for Firefox. I also have turned off hardware acceleration but my flash player keeps crashing on every youtube video I try.

Crash reports With Hardware Acceleration: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/929ae2cc-b007-4dee-900f-a66fc2130623

Without: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/ca2d2983-77b4-4ccf-a271-9e48c2130623

Also Firefox just stopped responding when I allowed the troubleshooter, but it did give information after restoring my previous session.

http://start.search.us.com/v/2/?guid={57D051C3-199E-4DE4-9AC7-5694B9254CC9}&serpv=5

When I open Firefox it reverts to the above linked search engine.

That link is to the search engine that has infected my firefox. I have tried several methods to get rid of it. I have gone into extensions and deleted anything that looked like it. I have gone into 'uninstall programs' and un-installed anything that was to do with it. I have ran my Norton 360 scan which has detected nothing. I downloaded Malware Bytes free anti-malware software scanner which detected nothing. I have reset the home page to default but this does nothing. I have tried re setting firefox, no result. Please can you help me remove this search engine off firefox, nothing seems to work and it is very irritating. Thanks

Tried deleting cookies, clearing history, reinstalling flash, firefox safe mode, all add ons turned off, made a different firefox profile, restarted firefox to its default settings. Nothing works, start playing any youtube video and at the 1 second mark the error appears. It doesn't matter if the video is embedded.

Curiously, youtube does work in chrome.

What do I do?

I've disabled all add ons that may cause this, I've cleared the cache and cookies and opened firefox up in safe mode.


This doesn't happen in Chrome and sometimes youtube works in firefox, I restarted for example and it was working fine for a few minutes and now it's not working at all.

Does anybody have any solutions? I've tried pretty much all I've found online.

Often part of the text of a webpage or menu is blurry. For instance when i registered on this site, after clicking on the box to fill in my username the text above it became blurred. Another exemple, when scrolling in the menu with open tab pages serveral lines of text become blurred. This only lasts until i do something for instance scrolling or selecting the text or ctrl+ (using ctrl 0 does not help).

I have a screenshot if i can find a way to upload it here.

Got hijacked by Delta Search. Successfully removed all Delta extensions, add-ons, deleted user.js file that Delta created, and probably a couple other things done, too. Still left with the about:config not saving the reset to default (about:newtab) that I make to browser.newtab.url. Works fine while Firefox is still open, but reverts back to "userset" and then empty value when Firefox is restarted. It originally had Delta settings there, so I don't get why it got rid of Delta in the value for browser.newtab.url but won't permanently save back to the default so that I can have the quick tabs on each new page.

I'm really new to Firefox and having a little trouble customizing the appearance. On the bookmark toolbar, some "buttons" have icons that represent the website...google, for instance, has the blue square with "g" in the center, duckduckgo has the duck head icon. Some websites however don't automatically show an icon on the bookmark button. Some show nothing, while others show a dotted square. Is there anyway to set an icon for these buttons? I can do that using IE but can't seem to figure out how to on Firefox.

Hi, I have a thing that's been bugging me for a while. I have Firefox locked down pretty tight. Do not track, no browser history stored and no cookies etc etc.

HOWEVER, whenever I open a new tab I get the blocks of "previously visited websites to chose from" with some sites I have visited in the past (though not all) even though I'm basically running in private mode all the time. I can go to the security settings and select "clear history" and they go away and I get blank boxes again. But every time it builds up and they come back. How do I stop this from happening? Because clearly it's saving my browsing history somewhere, somehow even though I'm asking it not to.

Any help would be appreciated.

So I've been download a file which is 1.80 GB, I let it download overnight but when I checked it. The download stopped in 1.60 GB and I don't really feel like downloading it all over again.

I searched in Google for some ways to resume it, there are some that seems to be working. But when I tried, it won't work. Like the .PART method, since I'm using Windows 7 the incomplete and the .PART file won't merge (or whatever they call it)!

Is there a way to merge those two files? Or am I doing it wrong? Please help, I'm like 20mb-200mb (or whatever the leftover is) away from finishing that damn download.

I use Gmail and occasionally receive emails which contain embedded images rather than attachments. These images do not appear when I use Gmail from Firefox, but they do appear when I use Gmail from Chrome or IE. If I forward the mail then the images appear in the forward mail window. Have tried all of the recommended actions but with no success.

Hi, I looked online for any solutions to this problem but I cant find anything. When I go to a youtube video. Lets say youtube homepage, first random video. The video will play for a split second, then change quality, then change and change and keep changing until it eventually goes up to the highest quality and then crashes or sometimes (very rarely) it plays at 1080. When it crashes i get the "An error occurred, please try again later". I have the box ticked "never play in high quality" but makes no difference. As soon as it starts to cycle through the quality I cannot stop it. Only happens on firefox, IE and Chrome are fine. I have tried clearing cookies. I have tried a fresh install of Firefox, I have no addons running. I have tried signing out of Youtube. I installed realplayer. I even tried starting in safe mode. Nothing I do seems to make a difference
