When I click for a new tab I get a site "MyStart by Incredibar" I have unistalled the program but this site still shows up. I want to see my home page, or better yet the Bing thumbnails that used to appear. Where do I go to change the setting to get rid of the unwanted site?

Thanks

Videos that won't play, do work on other browsers like IE and Chrome so I'm assuming this is a Firefox issue

I have tried re-installing over and over again the flashplayer, i even tried rolling back to 11.3 but youtube still won't work in most videos it shows an error message saying "an error has happened please try again later"

I've tried some solutions posted before such as copying files from adobe's folder to firefox's plugins folder. but it didn't help either


I'm using windows 7 x64 firefox 16.0.1 Adobe flash player installed is (supposedly)11.4 but on adobe's check flash player version page, it won't show me the version instead a blank rectangle appears...(chrome and IE, do show it, however..stating that 11.4 is indeed the version installed)

It doesn't matter what site I'm on and it even happens sometimes when the browser is minimized and not being used. The window will disappear as if I've hit the close button, then when I start the browser again it usually brings my tabs back up or shows me the "This is embarrassing" window. I'd say it happens about every half an hour.

This morning my home page in FF and IE were changed to start.search.us.com. I was able to uninstall start.search (using Revo Uninstaller; it does not show up in Control Panel/Programs). I was able to change my home page in IE back to what I want and it seems to "stick." But every time I restart FF the home page I had previously set switches back to start.us. I can't find any evidence of start.search in Add-ons, Extensions etc. I think I know where this came from--I clicked a little too fast on some free software and spotted the search thing too late. I saw some extremely complicated explanations and recommendations for this problem in FF somewhere with lots of comments that the stuff was undecipherable and didn't work anyway. Any suggestions? I saw a suggestion that uninstalling FF and then reinstalling it can fix this. Does it? If so I can do that pretty easily--saving my bookmarks and reinstalling the single add-on that I have been using for months.

We have an HP MS6200 MulitSeat PC It is running Microsoft Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 (which appears to be a tweaked version of Windows 7) It is set up in a computer lab, and students log in using their shared room account - ie multiple instances of the same user accounts are running on the PC at the same time. The first student to run Firefox can work with it without problem. However when another student tries to start firefox they get the following message: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.

Доброго времени суток. http://support.mozilla.org/ru/kb/kak-nastroit-paneli-instrumentov?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=how-do-i-customize-toolbars здесь говорится, что: > Панель вкладок: Здесь расположены ваши вкладки – вы не можете её спрятать. По умолчанию панель вкладок расположена выше панели навигации. Если вы хотите переместить её ниже, то щёлкните правой кнопкой мыши по пустому месту на панели вкладок и уберите галочку Вкладки сверху.

Я только что обновился до версии 16 и не вижу у себя возможности поставить панель вкладок под панелью навигации. Мне очень непривычно и неудобно работать когда вкладки вверху. Подскажите, как сделать, чтобы вкладки открывались внизу? Спасибо.

I am using firefox portable 16.0.2 as i am at work and do not have admin privileges. When i open You tube, firefox asks me to update adobe flash player. Flash player is installed and i can see videos using Chrome and IE. It was working fine a few days ago. I am guessing that adobe came up with some newer version and firefox wants me to update. I understand they do this cos they think the older version may have security risks etc. But i cannot update it (cannot ask the admin, they never agree). Is there a solution to this.

thanks.

It seems this happened after Firefox latest update. I can't seem to be able to copy the translated text box in Google Translate. I tried using IE and that worked. Hopefully you guys can test it on your side to see if it's working for you?

I also tried it with disabling Adblock Plus, but that didn't help.

Firefox just updated itself to version 16.0.1. Now, when attempting to close multiple tabs, I get the "Confirm close" warning even though the "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" option is unchecked. I tried checking that option, confirming the change, then unchecking that option again & confirming the 2nd change, too. This has made no difference. Firefox is not obeying the option setting.

The problem didn't occur before the update to 16.0.1 but did occur in the first session afterwards & has persisted since.

Warning: If you upgrade to Firefox 17 and use Google's old search -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

the autocomplete (drop-down box of you personal search terms) is disabled and per Google is not a Google issue

Again if you use https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

your typed search history contained in the drop-down box is eliminated with Firefox 17, and once again Google has verified that it is not a Google issue.

Hopefully Firefox fixes this issue because tens of millions of people who use Google's old Search Engine -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

use it because it retains your typed search history while eliminating google's suggestions, making searches fast and precise and effective and efficient without google's clutter of suggestions, yet Firefox 17 disables it altogether
