How do I remove ad.yieldmanager.com in firefox 12.0 I already went to tools, options, privacy, use custom settings for history and then exceptions added "ad.yieldmanager.com" to be blocked. Cleaned out all cookies. It still pops up when I log onto Firefox just below my tool bars. I have run Avast Antivirus, Malwarebytes, Spyware Terminator 2012 and these did not help either.

I am using firefox on mac with manual proxies and have provided the proxy address and port. I have set the proxy in Firefox->Preferences->Advanced->Network. This proxy requires authentication But firefox does not prompt me for credentials of this proxy. It just throws a page that says "Proxy Authorization Required" and "Description: Authorization is required for access to this proxy"

I have tried the following to no effect. 1) Clearing all the profiles in ~/Library/Profiles folders 2) Clearing profiles.ini file. 3) Setting the proxy along with username and password in System preferences and make firefox use system proxies instead of manual proxies.

Right now I am downloading firefox 13 beta to see if this solves the problem. Any workaround available for FF12.0?


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.


EDIT:: Tried with FF 13 beta. Same problem

I have a PC with 2 GBs of RAM, running W2K, primarily. I had avoided upgrading from the Firefox 3.x.x series ( or 5 ? ) because it was my understanding that it was the last one suitable for Windows2000. Not long ago, I got an automatic robot request from Firefox to update, and tried to make sure it was still within the compatibility range for W2k.

I thought that I was getting a minor update to a W2K version, but instead, have Firefox 12, which has totally disrupted my internet activity because it constantly bogs down into barely running, or else freezes up for long periods, and frequently crashes.

I want to roll back to whatever I'd used before this disaster. And if there's any special ways to do that, I want to know how it works. Thanks.

I often view a map from a government mapping service that requires a plugin (from Autodesk). On my older computer running Win XP and FF12 the plugin was installed in the plugins folder of Firefox.

I now have a new computer running Win7 and FF12 but there is no plugins folder. Where do I install the plugin so it appears in the plugins list under Tools>Addons>Plugins?

Thanks in advance.

The OLD advice for this problem, listed below, is NOT working. The web addresses just DON'T come off:

1) Click the arrow that's located on the far right side of the Firefox address bar. A list of URLs will drop down.

2) Place your cursor over the URL you wish to manually delete.

3) Hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard. Then, press the "Delete" key. The highlighted URL will be deleted. Or I've been advised to hold down the "Control" key. Neither works.


There must some new, updated instructions on how to delete unwanted web addresses from the drop-down list. Anybody???

Bookmarks Toolbar does not show up whenever I first open the browser. There is a space for it but no icons are there. The only thing that works right now for me is to go in to 'View > Toolbars', uncheck the Bookmarks Toolbar, then go back in & re-check it. It's a PITA but it works. When I close the browser & re-open it I have to go through the same routine again. In addition I sometimes lose the functionality of the Menu Toolbar, it is there but does not work. I have tried the Customize, the restore defaults & the deletion of the localstore.rdf solutions. Nothing has worked. Looking forward to a solution.

I keep getting the unresponsive script warning. This has been happening for three days now. It happens on all websites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times now, once completely and am working off a 'clean' version now - no extensions, no profile, no bookmarks. I've extended the run time in about:config. I don't know what else to do apart from use a different browser.... which I don't want to do. Any suggestions? I've run Firefox for years and never had this :-(
