When searching for something, a Search Engine called 'Delta' popped up. Despite ticking a box to say NO I didn't want it, I've now got it on both Firefox and Google. I've followed as many instructions as I could understand and removed it from Add-ons but IT WON'T GO AWAY. What on earth can I do to get my settings back to normal and rid myself of the dreaded DELTA?

(NB. Whilst trying to comprehend various instructions I disabled all my add-ons and now can't see how to enable them again.)

I update BitTorrent to the latest version today and after that my search bar on the top right changed from Google to "Conduit Search" That was easily fixed with two clicks but for some reason it also changed what happens when I open a new tab from the default new tab page with the pinned book marks to this: http://i.imgur.com/dmU463W.png

I looked up some stuff to help and found the information on "about:config" to change the "browser.newtab.url" value to "about:newtab" however when I attempt to do that I get the window that is supposed to come up prompting me to input the new value, I put in the value and nothing changes, it remains with this Conduit Search stuff. Closing Firefox afterwards does not fix the problem and I have tried the process several times to make sure it was not just a one time bug. It also does not work for any value as leaving it blank or changing it to "about:blank" did not solve the issue.

I just checked task manager, since my computer was running a bit slow, and found firefox to be using nearly 1.2 GIGABYTES of RAM, with only 4 tabs open + Chatzilla for IRC. I have Skyrim running at the same time, and it is using LESS RAM than Firefox is!

I've tried disabling plugins, to the point where I only have the Flash and Adobe PDF ones running, I had to disable the plugin container since it crashes repeatedly (Usually at least once every couple of days). I tried using the "Free Memory" options in about:memory, and they do literally nothing to reduce the RAM usage. It's normally between 400 and 600 MB (Which is still insanely excessive for a browser). Closing Chatzilla only reduces the RAM usage by about 10-15 MB, so it doesn't seem to be the problem.

How in the name of all that's sacred is a browser using more RAM than a modded version of Skyrim?

This problem was raised 2 years ago but was never resolved to the user then and the problem they were having the same one I came looking for an answer to.

I need to be able to allow individual sites to "automatically redirect" while preventing other sites from having that privilege.

As it is now, I use Opera to access the problem site when Firefox won't allow it. I REALLY DON'T want to change this setting universally.

I have YouTube videos embedded on my website and some of them will play and some will not. This happens on both PC and MAC so is not OS specific and all the embedding coding on the website is the same. When I first embedded the videos they all worked, now only certain ones play. The ones that will not play have a black screen and audio only plays.

Before the update everything was working fine, but yesterday after the update I noticed that whenever I open a page and after that I hit back button, it doesn't reload the page like before. It's annoying, because I use forum and sometimes is confusing when I open a thread and after that it still says that "new thing", the only way to remove it is to reload the page from the refresh button.
