The address bar at the top of the browser window doesn't work. It displays the address of the page I'm on just fine, but when I type in an address and hit either "enter" or the little "go to this address" forward arrow, nothing happens. In addition, the arrow is always grayed out.

It doesn't have anything to do with the address being invalid, as it happens even if I copy an address from a page I was on previously (which I did just to check).

I recently downloaded some freeware and, without permission, it installed some malware by the name of My Start by Incredibar that hijacked the home page, new tab page, default search engine, and other functions in Firefox.

The removal of the program itself was a simple task, as was disabling and uninstalling the addon it had installed in Firefox. I thought everything was back to normal, but when I went to open a new tab the My Start site appeared instead of the default blank page.

Will a reinstall without deleting user data solve this problem? I would rather not have to pull a full clean reinstall as I have a lot of addons with custom settings and logins.

So about 5 days ago this problem started.

I've tried everything, uninstalling, reinstalling, installing older versions of Firefox, everything in the help file about this, going into about:config to set scanning to false, uninstalling my virus program (avast), etc.

They only thing I didn't try is restore points because they didn't go back far enough.

What could this possibly be? The moment the download finished it's absolutely gone.

first i removed header and footer, and set the all margins to be found in about:config(Linux) or in Dialog (Windows) to zero.

On all html documents i get a little gap on the top of the first page, but not on the second one. The gap appears on paper print, on file print(PDF) and on preview - under firefox (17.0) for Linux and Windows. IE 8 on windows has other abnormalities, but equal top margin on all printed pages.

How can i remove this difference top margins between first page and the following once in firefox ?
