I'm still on XP on this older PC, this all started because of this stupid bing toolbar that has infecting many computers, and I started unistalling a few programs that looked like they didn't belong, I ended up getting rid of the bing but now I have a much bigger problem, I still have my adobe flash player of course, all the sudden when I go to a site like wiziwig.tv to stream baseball games it just doesn't work. I tried system restore to a previous date but that wiped out all my bookmarks and everything. I just think there is some file or program I need as I've been streaming shows at sights like watchseries.ch until today. If that bing toolbar hadn't came out of nowhere I'd be watching right now!

just updated to firefox 29.0.1. now i can't highlight and print a selection. I can highlight a section, but when i hit the print button it goes to a print preview page, the highlighting is gone, it shows the full web page(on which i can't highlight), then when i hit print again i get the print properties menu, but it won't let me choose "selection" in print range- obviously because my "selection" disappears when i go to print preview page. Can anyone out there help? I would sure appreciate any tips! Thanks.

I have the Spanish version and do not function well making any changes in firefox because the browser language is in Spanish. I have found a few answers on the Internet but they do not work for me. If this is not possible, how difficult is it to uninstall and reinstall an English version? I am in Costa Rica.

I'm wondering if it's possible to move the menu bar items to the bookmarks bar, or, if need be, move all the bookmarks bar items to the menu bar and then move the menu bar under the tabs.

There used to be an Add-on called "UI Fixer" that let me do this, but with the new Firefox 29 this is now impossible and the "Classic Theme Restorer" doesn't grant this specific functionality.

Very simple: how can I block GEOLOCATION in Firefox 29.0.1? Am using Snow Leopard 10.6. Mozilla Support :

DOES NOT WORK; I tried several ways using above advice: 1) typed both on 2 lines. 2) typed both on one line Both 1) & 2) close and separately. WASTED MUCH TIME..

I get the message "The content you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired, or you may not have permission to view this page." This happens every time I open a Facebook or Mafia Wars page in Firefox. I've removed any corrupt cookies, etc., and done all that troubleshooting. I even disabled all my plugins, to no effect. I'm afraid it's some sort of virus.

Since this morning's update I've been unable to put my bookmarks toolbar where I've always had it (above the webpage tabs), so know I'm going to run the risk of hitting bookmarks when I'm trying to open or close tabs...stupid! And why are the new tabs invisible? Change for changes sake...not everything a geek comes-up with is by default 'good'.

I am attempting to reset Firefox (for Linux/Ubuntu 12.04 LTS), which has gone a bit wonky... but following the procedure, the first thing is to select "Help" (icon "Question Mark) and proceed from there. Unfortunately, there is no help icon displayed in the choices as it is shown on the Firefox website. It's rather like trying to find a corner in a round room. As an aside, amongst the problems I am experiencing, is the appearance of green, grey, and black rectangular boxes in the browser window. Visually, it is like the text that usually appears there is being "masked" or something. (Perhaps) A propos of nothing.. this seems to have happened on the heels of a regular Ubuntu Update. Thanks for any advice/guidance. Jaguar PS - I wanted to u/l a screen shot, but was unable to do.

I have tried for over 2 weeks, deleting registry entries in safe mode, changing browser settings, deleting addons, I have tried EVERY solution Google searches have to offer and this thing keeps coming back! All the solutions only work until a reboot happens or a few hours later. Is there any other way that I haven't found yet that will kill this thing besides FDisk?
