3 days ago I was trying to watch videos on youtube and i kept getting adobe flash player crash error. i went ahead and updated to firefox 20.0.1 and i updated to flash player 11.7. still getting the error. Ive clean installed both since. I've reverted to older versions even the 10.3 listed on Firefox Troubleshooting guide. Nothing seems to work. I cannot watch any video period on any website that i've tried. Ive ran Malwarebytes and virus scans both with latest definitions and all is clean. Now firefox just crashed as i was writing this. weird. some assistance would be appreciated. Thanks

I would like to do a TOTAL RESET TO DEFAULT of all settings in FF20. I have had nothing but horrible problems with the new built-in PDF viewer, and despite ALL my efforts, all I can do is download the PDF instead of view it in either FF or Adobe. I am tired of fighting, the program did not need a built in PDF viewer, Acrobat was fine. You have really ruined a great product adding in stuff that duplicates other products, especially when yours in inferior to the standard. I just want my program to work right, using Acrobat 9.x as my viewer. It is set for it, buyt it will only Download the file, not open it.

Hi - I need to use Firefox because an online course only works with it. However, I will never use it for anything else unless I can get rid of Ask.com as my default address bar search. I have been through the support files and have tried everything. There is no Ask toolbar. There is no chromewebapp.sqlite file or user.js file (may be wrong on spelling as I'm doing this from memory). I reset keyword.url and changed it to http://www.google.com/search?q=. I reset that other file (something about stone...again, I'm doing this from memory!). I reset Firefox. I completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it.

I believe this is connected to Norton Safe Search. However, the Norton Toolbar is disabled and Safe Search is disabled. I did want to be able to use the Norton Toolbar and never had this problem with it in the past.

Can you help or should I just go back to using Chrome?

I am desperate to remove Delta Search from my new tab page. What do I do after I open about:config? I have done at least a dozen resets, have removed DS via add/remove, am running a virus scan at present...this is TERRIBLE, and there HAS to be a way to get rid of it. When I do a reset, the new tab page is what I WANT...my previously saved pages. However, when I CLOSE FF and reopen, the new page is, once again, Delta. Can you hear me SCREAM? Can you see my TEARS? I am really fed up. Thanks for getting back to me with a solution that WORKS. jo

Many versions ago I customized the background color if none was given to a brown to go with the skin I was using then.

Now I find displaying a simple text file is unreadable with unbolded black against the brown, but I cannot find in today's version where to set it back to white (or at least a pale color).

Any help appreciated.

I've tried everything I can find and nothing works. When I print from Firefox it is centered in the middle of the page at the top and very small. Doesn't matter which printer I use. When I print from another browser it prints fine. I did not have this problem with firefox before. I will switch to another browser for now due to this problem.

I can't open anything in my Downloads list. I've tried resetting firefox and I've also tried everything in your article "What to do if you can't download or save files" but nothing helps. I tried to upgrade to the latest firefox to see if this helps but once I've hit the Download button, 1 minute later it appears in my downloads list and... same issue... I can't open it to run it! It's like it's crashed, because no amount of clicking on a download will activate anything. It seems like the Downloads list is dead! Also, (and I think this is linked), I cannot save web pages. I go though the motions and it looks like it's doing the right thing but the pages don't save - they just disappear into the ether! I'm on Windows Vista and have been downloading things happily for years, but suddenly this problem has occured and I've run out of ideas now... Please help!

I have firefox 20.0.1

This iminent thing must have ridden in on some download but it is all over the browser trying to put up spammy stuff in facebook, gmail, pinterest. I t may be partially blocked by some other add-ons like adblock-plu or better privacy, but it is there creating spurious toolbars on all my social sites and with little popout side windows.

I ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing.

I tried to follow these instructions from http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-the-search-iminent-search-the-web-hijacker-virus/#Firefox to remove it: Step 1: Open Firefox, and navigate to Tools -> Add-ons (Ctrl+Shift+A). Step 2: Select Extensions and find the particular Search Iminent Search The Web Toolbar extension, and click disable and remove.

BUT the "remove" button was absent.

I tried to follow these instructions to remove Iminent cookie: How to block the Iminent.com cookie 1.From the Tools menu, select Options 2.In the upper section of the Options window, click Privacy 3.In the Cookies tab, click Exceptions 4. In the new Exceptions – Cookies window, enter Iminent.com in the Address of Website field and click Disable.

BUT there was no "cookie tab."

I have been leaving the following site open during inclement weather while doing other things (spreadsheets, documents, financial programs, etc.) to periodically check weather quickly.

http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=30340

Lately, there have been video advertisements on this site that will automatically play with sound that are obnoxious and distracting. I would like to prevent these. The webmaster for the site claims that they do not allow these ads and yet, I get them. He says they cannot replicate the issue and suspect its a problem with my settings. I do not know if the same thing happens with advertisements on other sites or not.

On a related note, is there a way to prevent "roll over" ads from playing?

How can I print a whole email document and not a "screen shot" like I get in the Print Preview option. I'd like to print from "file" and print" like I can on other browsers (IE, for example). When I try to print from Firefox it grabs all my info (file folders, etc.) from the left side of the page. I need just the email information, not the entire screen information. Thank you!
