Search and Address bar not working.

Hello, I have this problem were whenever I try to type in something into the search or addresys bars, nothing happens. It's like the enter key isn't working. There is not usual picture next to the search bar (the one that shows you what search engine you're using. If it's google it shows a "g" next to the bar). Instead there is just a picture of a blank page as a placeholder. When I try to go in and add a new search engine by managing the search engine list, there is no option to add a new search engine. I have already tried going into the firefox folder on my computer and deleted the formhistory.sqlite file that is the supposed problem. No avail. I have even gone so far to delete and reinstall firefox to my computer. Well, that didn't work either. So I waited until the next update to see if my problem would be fixed THEN. I am currently on firefox 19.0, which is, as of writing, the most current version. I have tried restarting firefox with all addons removed. And for good measure, I deleted anything that ended with ".sqlite" in my firefox folder. I have tried to get the the about:config menu but do not know how considering how my address bar refuses to search. The greatest thing is that my address bar can still remember all the sites I've typed into it before, but for some unknown reason, cannot take me to any of them! I really don't know what to do next. I can only suppose that I could try completely deleting everything firefox has stored on my computer, as I don't know if just uninstalling the program actually did that. Other then my search bar problem, firefox has been acting fairly normally besides a few minor hiccups here and there. I am trying to remember if I downloaded anything before my search bar problems started or not, but it is always a possibility. I did download the firefox beta for windows 8 metro mode but I can't remember if that was before or after firefox started acting up. It's possible considering that softonic thought they were being really nice by including fbdownloader for free with my firefox metro browser. I am now no longer using softonic ever again. But that's all the evidence I can think up right off the tip of my head. Sorry if this was kinda long, and if any of my description isn't clear or make sense please ask and I can try to verify. Also, if I haven't said this already, my search bar is only not working in firefox. Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari are all working fine. Just my luck, I guess. If anyone could help me out, I'd be much obliged. Not being able to use the address bar has been really inefficient. Thank you.

Periodically when Firefox is updated, it starts rejecting Yahoo Mail from loading, giving the "Your connection is not secure" / SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER error. Unfortunately, it does not give you the option to add an exception, which clears up the problem most of the time.

Today this happened again with no ability to add an exception, and after looking at various websites for hours, trying to find a fix, I stumbled on one: Having Firefox "...automatically search for and import CAs that have been added to the Windows certificate store by a user or administrator." These are root certificates which you've manually imported. If you understood that last sentence, then it means you've probably done it on your computer; I know I have. The steps to fix it are these, and I cite the original web page further below:

- Open a new window in Firefox and type "about:config" without the quotes and hit enter - Confirm that you want to continue - In the search field, type in security.enterprise_roots.enabled and hit enter - you'll be left with one field - If it's marked as "false" then double-clicking it should turn it to "true" - Close the window, then go back to your Yahoo email login and try again. For me, this worked *perfectly*!

Here's the site where I found the info, under the "Experimental Built-in Windows Support" section: https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:AddRootToFirefox

Good luck - I hope this helps to fix your Yahoo email login problem, too!

Hi. After updating to 58.0 my system crashed and Firefox was rebooted. However the 15 or so tabs I had open were not restored, and I can't find any file in the Firefox/Mozilla folders on my computer that might contain a record of them (all files are from either after the crash, or the newest ones before that are from early January). Is there a way to restore the session from synced information?

When I check my plugins, the following three, very closely related (in my mind) plugins are listed, and the "Renderer" still shows "Research" when checking to see if it is Up-To-Date. It seems to me I don't need all three. I tried removing the Renderer (yes, I know how to do that safely), but Google seems to continue to reinstall it (with one or both of the other two...?)...I'll ask this on a Google Forum too, since it's their product, but wondered if anyone has any insight. I obsess about plugins that need "Research" - Thanks! Google Talk Plugin Video Accelerator version:0.1.44.24 Google Talk Plugin Version 3.15.2.12038 Google Talk Plugin Video Renderer Version 3.15.2.12038

I updated Mozilla yesterday and as it happened, this new PDF viewer it magically came with doesn't cooperate with the sites I need to use for my workplace. I want the old way of viewing PDF's back, or just to be able to disable the built-in PDF viewer so that I can use the Adobe PDF viewer and see my files once again. I found a way to disable all PDF viewers, through about:config, but now I have to download the PDF's to my desktop to even view them and this doesn't exactly flow with my work. Please help!

I downloaded some program from cnet, which used to be a reputable source, but now seems to be riddled with malware. The item I downloaded was not what I thought it was and I promptly removed it from my computer. I also managed to remove snap.do toolbar from all my browsers and my computer with little effort. HOWEVER, I cannot seem to get rid of snap.do. It seems as though it has hijacked the startpage of all my browsers, IE, Chrome,Safari, and Firefox all show snap.do whenever I open them. Of course I can click past this and go to a different page with no trouble. I can reset the homepage in tools-internet options and every time I hit the little house button, I can go back to that homepage. BUT if I turn my browser OFF, when I turn it back on, snap.do is the homepage once more. I have run anti-malware from Kaspersky and Webroot, neither finding anything. I have reset Firefox. I have done a flushDNS through config. I have checked all the settings for the LAN, Internet protocol, and HOSTS folder. I have even reset the router to factory settings. I am at a complete loss. All I want is for my homepage to come up when I open my browser, any browser. Since Firefox is my preferred browser, I am asking you. Please help Running: Windows XP SP3 with latest available Firefox

When I open Firefox I get a message “Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?” If I click on Yes everything then proceeds as normal. If I close Firefox and then re-open it, the same thing happens (even as soon as one minute - or less - later). This is recent behaviour (last couple of days) and there has been no known event which might have triggered this. Other browsers (Chrome, Edge) do not exhibit this behaviour. How can I fix this (or do I just switch browsers)? The settings re Compatibility Mode and Run as Administrator are both unchecked.

Thanks for any assistance.

I was having issues with Videos playing so figured I had to update my Flashplayer, but when I tried to update it kept failing to install and on the Control Panel for Windows XP I clicked on the Flashplayer Icon and went to the Advanced Tab and it states that there are no ActiveX Control installed but I know I have ActiveX version 10 installed due to some Games I have installed on the PC. So I was wondering how FireFox worked with or around the ActiveX Controls. This is for my piece of mind and future reference as I do all my own Tech Support for my PC and am self taught through trial and error about XP. Am running an Intel Celeron processor, 697MHz with XP Service Pack 3, FireFox 12.0, 192MB of SD RAM. Yeah it's old but it works for what I do. LOL Anyway any info on this would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance Craig
