Okay - for YEARS now I've used ONLY Firefox - it had the best extensions and add-ons of any other browser out there. Add to it, it was safe and very quick. So it was my default browser.

This week I logged into my DeviantArt site and odd advertisements started showing up in the lower left and right corners of the browser, unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Add to it, they were very inappropriate! So I assumed that something was wrong, and went through three, as in 3, programs to find out if I had any 'bugs' causing the problems. And of course, there was some kind of nasty bug in Firefox causing all kinds of issues.

So, following the suggestions of the fixer, plus the suggestions here, I deinstalled Firefox (21) then reinstalled the newer version, 23. At first, I thought, "Wow, that is really fast!". When I opened Firefox it didn't go to my home page, it went to the Firefox startup page, along with opening tabs for EVERY add-on and extension!

So, opened Tools, Options and reset the home page to my home page, https://www.google.com

Simple, and something I've done before. I'm a computer geek and have worked on my own additions. So, set up my home page, was working in Firefox, went to youtube to download a video and it wouldn't! So went to DLhelper, read their comments, changed one of the strings, and voila! No problems!

So I thought it was fixed and I was happy. That was last night. This morning I boot the puter and the first thing I do is open Firefox . And what happens? Oh, yes, that's right, NOTHING THAT I WOULD HAVE WANTED! It's back to the Firefox startup page, and it opens tabs for EVERY SINGLE ADD-ON!

Holy carp, getting tired now. So I research from 8 this morning until about an hour ago, so just over 5 hours I keep trying to fix it based on Firefox instructions. Go into about:config, work on the strings, change the home page info, etc. Save it. Go back to Tools, Options and there's my home page. Close Firefox and open it, and what the heck? Again, back to where it was, opening as if I just uploaded this browser. Now I've spent literally HOURS trying to fix this and I'm so frustrated that I'm just about ready to de-install it! My one complaint is that I searched all over to try and find this same problem and cannot find it. Is that true, I'm the only one with this bizarre problem???

I know I am in wrong place talking about Thunderbird but Mozilla is a name I trust. When I want to ask a question in Thunderbird site, I had to make new account when I wanted to post the question it is asking to make another account or use Yahoo/Facebook/Twitter.

Because of all this kind of cheating and fake things I started using Mozilla products but it seems I was wrong.

Just enlighten why would two accounts are needed to post a question?

Thank you

My friend just bought a Windows 8 laptop so I told her to download the latest version of FireFox. Unfortunately, some idiot removed the Menu Bar which most people love. You can see all of your options in plain English. Anyway, I referred her to help and cannot believe it's so hard to get a simple answer to this question. Why does FireFox make it so difficult to get an old fashioned menu bar?

Help says, "Right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip and check Menu Bar". OK, what is a "TAB STRIP" and where does she find it? Who writes these silly, useless help tips?

The new Firefox is not user friendly. The old one had all options for action listed for easy access. Now one must hit a drop-down menu for selection which adds extra steps to accomplishing desired actions. Also there is no place that allows "Reply" feature for messages. Why was that eliminated? Why do software experts think they are making things easier when all they do is complicate usage for common folk?

I'm not sure what I did to cause Firefox to do I GUESS a BACKUP. Since I now have a folder named "Old Firefox Data" what do I do with it? Do I need to somehow re-instate all that is in this folder back into my Firefox Browser? Or, do I need it at all? What am I missing here? No explanations, no guideance, no direction as to what to do or how to do it from Firefox or Mozilla. I can't even tell for sure IF I AM MISSING ANYTHING WITHIN MY WORKING FIREFOX BROWSER NOW THAT WAS SAVED IN THIS BACKUP orrrrrrrrrrr not? lescot lescot@sbcglobal.net

I had a virus that redirected my web address thru something called Conduit when I entered the url in the address bar. Geek Squad was able to remove the virus (took two attempts). After that I noticed the Secure Search icon in the Search Engine bar when Secure Search is selected is a small light gray rectangle, containing a grid, with the upper right corner of the rectangle turned down and the center of the grid contains a darker gray square. However, when the Manage Search Engines option is clicked the list of available search engines shows Secure Search with the conventional icon: Red McAfee Shield emblazoned with white M. I am concerned this apparent discrepancy indicates that Geek Squad did not completely remove the virus. I must admit this apparent discrepancy could have been there all along, is “normal”, but I only noticed it after the virus was removed. If it really is a problem, how do I get it fixed? I appreciate any enlightenment available.
