While downloading a music sharing program called "imesh" a number of different addons were added to my toolbars.I uninstalled the imesh program but all the additional addons stayed. I got rid of most of these but my home page was switched to the "imesh" search page. No matter how many times I have tried to switch back to my preferred home page, as soon as I shut down Firefox and then return to it later, the homepage has been swithched back to the "imesh" search page.

Some of those drop down suggestions can get pretty long. How do you remove entries - or clear them?

I'm currently using FF 3.6.13 on Windows 7 X64. I've finally got wireless online with Reliance Netconnect in India.

I have tried numerous times to download from the web, ranging from the VLC program to JPG files attached to emails. When prompted, I click "Save file." Then I can't find the file. There's nothing in my "Downloads" folder.

I WAS able to do this some months earlier on a land line in India and also the last time I was in the US.

Thanks for your help!

I am unable to get the Firefox browser window to launch. The application will attempt to open, but the browser window will not appear. Task manager indicates that the process is running, it just will not launch the window. No amount of restarts or reboots will make a difference. The strange thing about this is that Firefox has never run. This is a new computer and this issue has been a problem since it was first plugged in. Troubleshooting steps attempted thus far: 1) Attempted to open in safe mode - will not open 2) Attempted to run in administrator mode- will not open 3) Completely uninstalled application, including profile info and reinstalled 4) Uninstalled known conflicts - Skype 4 (do not have Norton) 5) Even though issues since new, I ran a virus scan just in case-nothing 6) Uninstalled Chrome which I installed after originally being unsuccesful at getting FF to install (I uninstalled it before I began all of these troubleshooting steps as I have heard of conflicts)

I am now at a loss and willing to try any other steps that you guys can suggest.

Computer is running Windows 7 pro 64 bit. Running McAffee virus software. There are three identical computers in my office, purchased at exactly the same time with the same configuration. Mine is the only one that will not run firefox. Sadness. Please help, pleeeease...

Firefox is not connecting to the internet no matter what wireless system I try. I recieve the basic "Unable to Connect" error message. I can easily access the internet through Internet Explorer though. - I Use Windows 7 and have the newest version of Firefox - I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox - I have set the Proxy to "No Proxy" and I have added Mozilla to my basic Windows Firewall - I recovered my computer to when I didn't have this problem, nothing changed - I haven't run special virus programs to check for Malware, but I had NoScript, AdBlocker and Ghostry for Firefox - This happened after I updated Firefox - I know I am not alone in this problem, but the other posts have no helped me

I believe that is all the information (that I can think of) that you will need about this problem. Any efforts are appreciated, and thank you for reading.

I am trying to set the Default home Page to one of my own choosing because so many applications change the default to one of THEIR choice and it's a pain. I tried using the registry in IE but that only works for earlier versions and I cannot find how to do it at all in Firefox. I have looked through the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ folder and cannot see anything to allow this (save for some programmer spells default as DEFUALT)!

Firstly - I did post this yesterday but it did not appear - my apologies if it comes up twice.

When I click some links from various pages, including Yahoo and Google search results, I get a blank screen with (GIF Image, 1x1 pixels) in the tab, the correct URL is shown in the address bar. It started occasiobally, now happens with all search results and many (but not all) links from one site to another, whether they open in a new tab/window or the same tab.
