Have Mozilla as my home page.. tower.. xp and this continues to interrupt Everything.. re-downloaded Firefox, but this Claro continues to reappear.. Other than annoying, I believe it to be intrusive and maybe a threat.. Do you have any suggestions about how to remove it..? I've exhausted all internet 'solutions', none of which work.. When I open the home page.. Mozilla.. I get this Claro Search.. I don't want Claro involved, I trust Mozilla. Many thanks Neal

Performing any facebook actions (post, like, comment, ...) is redirected to the webpage https://www.facebook.com/ajax/ufi/modify.php "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can. Go Back"

The big problem is that it is wrong since more than 2 months. And i have to use back IE only for fb.

Occurency : always Firefox version : up to date, now v15 Extension and plugins : default ones Conditions : brand new PC at work

For info, i have the same issue on my home PC since 3 months, since FF12 release, in this case with plugins protecting privacy. But even desactivated, it is not working. As a first contact, i posted related bug report in fb process, but i never had any reply since, neither one email to confirm bug report.


How to do, please?

Initially, I did not request ask.com to become the default search engine and I did not ignore the box making the request. I have made the following efforts to return to google as default: Uninstalled ask.com and its automatic update, disabled all add-ons (including those that did not apply), checked extensions anything that pertained to ask.com (nothing was there), re-downloaded the latest version of Firefox, searched about:config for ask.com and reset it to default (google). On the Start Page the ask.com logo is still in the URL and a test search in the box under the logo yields ask.com results rather than google. Any additional recommendations would be helpful. At this point, I am considering the following: (1) restoring my computer to an earlier date; (2) reseting or removing firefox and reinstalling it; and (3) removing AVIRA.

Since the most recent Firefox-Update I am permanently kidnapped by the a "smartsuggestor" function, which takes me - without asking - EVERY TIME WHEN I CLICK A LINK IN ANY WEBSITE away from my target to SPONSORED LINKS, - and this happens even while I am password protected customer websites.This is more than annoying, but .... it doesn't happen when I'm using Opera. But I would love to stay with FIREFOX. Therefore I deactivated selectively (=set after set of) - finally - all of my addons. The same I did with my "Erweiterungen" (in English it probably is called "extensions" ) of Firefox. Nothing helped, nothing is protecting me from being taken away from the target of my "click". PLEASE help me out of this horrible problem. My German Firefox version is 15.0.1. - the XP-edition is most up-to-date.

After reinstalling/up-dating Firefox (to15.01) from a "free download" site, I find myself stuck with s.th. called mystart.incredibar and am being systematically redirected via searchqu.com/410 before opening up on Mozilla Firefox (below left it keeps saying "waiting for searchnu.com or searchqu.com). My daughter´s internet protection program manages to block off mystart.incredibar, but cannot seem to get around searchqu.com/410, which shows up as the "home"-address (upper right corner) for http://mozilla. How do I get rid of these two nuisances. Internet blogs on the subject are plentiful, mention that it is a Firefox related issue, but none of the solutions proposed seems to be permanent.

Thank you for any help.

I just noticed that when I disable the menu bar function to use the Firefox drop down function the certain functions that appear in the menu bar are missing in the drop down screen e.g. File and View. If they are present I can't seem to find them or is there another way to access these functions without having to enable the menu bar?

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.
