Recently I got hooked on reading articles from a UK site, but recently when I click on article links I'm automatically redirected to the American site and its content instead! I live in the US but hate the American site articles and much prefer the British ones. Initially my only solution was to stop the article while loading in order to remain on the desired article link but as of late that fails and I am automatically redirected to the American pages instead (ugh...).

I currently use Firefox 25.0 on Windows 7 Home Premium and have checked the "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" box under the Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Accessibility section but was still redirected. I have also installed the add-on Refresh Blocker v0.8 but was still redirected. The website is http://www.denofgeek.com but when I select an article on their main page or categories I'm redirected to the http://www.denofgeek.us "equivalent". As a precaution I have run a malware scan but came up clean and have deleted all cookies and temporary internet files, but once again it was all in vain.

Is there anything else I can do to avoid redirection? Or has this site officially lost a reader? Any help is well appreciated.

New problem started in the last day or so. Firefox won't open www.yahoo.com. Just get a blank white page. Same when I use the home page button, which is my yahoo. I was able to get to my email by using a yahoo mail entry in the history. But one suggestion I found online was to clear all history. I tried it and it didn't work, but now I have no access to yahoo. I tried Chrome on the same machine, and my account on a different machine and those work fine. So it is limited to this one installation of Firefox. So I did the clear all history. I also tried the reset Firefox command. Neither one helped.

I have a list of about 15 search engines added to search bar (all usual and famous sites), but somehow suddenly i've been unable to organize them or even change order of them. when i select manage search engines from the drop down menu of search bar the options window opens ok. next, if i change the order or remove or even press restore defaults then the ok button will never save this new settings or close the window and nothing to do other than to press cancel.

after some tries i found that changing order of some engines works ok. i tried everything and i don't want to lose my firefox profile it has a lot of hard work.

I did a Reset Firefox since I was continuously having slow and crashing problems. The site assured me that it would keep my Bookmarks. This a.m. I tried to pull up a Bookmark and found that ALL are gone! I can't find the folder that was supposed to have held all the deletions in case I wanted to restore any of them. I checked your site to see how to do a restore from a backup and, since I am definitely NOT a computer nerd, I didn't understand the instructions. PLEASE can someone help this inept computer operator to get Bookmarks back? Thanks!

I began to have printing problems which may have been triggered when printing from the Firefox browser. I did not isolate the trouble with Firefox, but I did determine the cause was an installation of Windows Internet Explorer version 11 which was installed automatically on a Windows Update. I am running 64-bit Windows 7. I determined V11 was the problem by removing updates one at a time then printing from several programs I use like WORD, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe Reader, Firefox, and Thunderbird. The symptom of the problem was that I could print fine once or twice, but then the communication between the PC and printer (Lexmark S405 b/g) became busy and no other print jobs would complete, even those from two other PCs (neither had V11) that worked fine for printing any print job before an attempt from the PC with V11. Once I resolved the problem to be V11, I did not try to isolate if it was triggered by any print job or one from Firefox, but I a little suspicion that it could be triggered by a print attempt from Firefox since I know I was able to print once or twice before the problem was triggered.
