I've tried everything--Firefox simply won't open. I opened the troubleshoot articles, but none of the fixes did the trick?

Firefox will not open. I tried every single troubleshoot recommendation, and it still won't work. I thought it may be under the "corrupt profile data" troubleshoot article, but when I followed the recommendations to change to a new profile, the profile manager would not open or run on my computer--as if it never existed. I tried downloading a different browser, and as soon as I imported my firefox data, it started misbehaving in the exact same way.

This is getting extremely frustrating. Anybody know what to do?

I keep getting this popup when using Firefox: "WARNING! your flash player may be out of date." I can tell it's phishing and I've never had this problem before. How can I get this to stop when using Firefox? It doesn't happen with IE.

My laptop’s keyboard is not working in Mozilla at all but works anywhere else. I am currently writing this in Word and cut and pasting it into the feedback box. I really need to fix this because it’s really making things difficult because I really don’t want to use another browser. I’ve already tried restarting with all my plugins disabled but that hasn’t helped and I have the newest version of Mozilla. I have not downloaded anything recently and have no idea why this started. The last thing I typed was into youtube which worked but as soon as I typed something else my keyboard wouldn’t work.

Please help!

My firefox has been fine for years up until a couple of days ago..

Sometimes when typing into google the autocomplete changes what im typing and sends me to the wrong site.

Any site i visit randomly redirects to worldsocialsurvey.com, and then takes me to loads of shopping pages when i cancel it.

I have ran virus scans with, Trend,Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and used combofix yet all of these say i am clean and nothing is wrong.

I have looked in about:config, and looked for anything that may redirect me like Babylon has a habit of doing, but it all appears to be fine.

Any ideas?

I have the latest version of firefox

I get an annoying ad at the bottom of my screen. When I hit "disable", it shows up as a sidebar. How do I get rid of these annoying ads?

I have looked and haven't found anything on this subject. I'm using Firefox 16.0.2. on a Windows 7 system. I get these ads in a banner covering the bottom of my screen. If I click the "X" button, it will disappear for a little bit and reappear. If I click the "disable" button, it'll appear as a side bar and it doesn't have a "disable" button on it, just an "about this ad" button.

If I click it's "X" button, it reappears as a banner at the bottom of the screen. While the ad is in the side bar position, I get this annoying banner at the bottom saying "related: ".

How do I disable this? It's annoying and I get enough ads on the websites I search.

My machine is Top of the range (my Company builds them so it had better be :) ) Amd 1100t , 8gb ram , Windows 7 64 bit etc, etc... The is not a hardware problem , but a software problem with FF...Any help would be appreciated as I hate using IE 8 for anything at all :( but I have to keep it on my machines just to run my remote security cameras at my Computer shop ???

Original question...as question length is limited ...not very bright that limit by the way :(

As I own a Computer company I am fairly computer literate but cannot find a plugin that allows this to work in Firefox.... but I would have expected it to work in the new Firefox :( All the best, Brett :)

For a few weeks now, when I am browsing the internet all of a sudden a new tab will open, and it is either something from "wartune" which I have NEVER played, or the one where it tells you your current firefox is outdated.

I have ran a malwarebytes and AVG scan on my computer and the problem still persists. I have went into my add-ons to see if I saw anything suspicious in there and even went through my programs and uninstalled anything I think should not be there, with the problem still there and beginning to become very annoying!

Can anyone help please?

I use mozilla to open internet and suddenly in the search engine box at top it brings me to Babylon.com which I have never seen before. I uninstalled the program through the control panel but it still appears when I open mozilla. I do not trust it and I think it is affecting my hotmail as when I sign in it will not allow mw to delete messages or signout using the signout button which I always wish to do. I do not like to just close page. The sign in page keeps flashing as connecting at the top left of the computer, rather than just saying connected.
