http://start.search.us.com/v/2/?guid={57D051C3-199E-4DE4-9AC7-5694B9254CC9}&serpv=5

When I open Firefox it reverts to the above linked search engine.

That link is to the search engine that has infected my firefox. I have tried several methods to get rid of it. I have gone into extensions and deleted anything that looked like it. I have gone into 'uninstall programs' and un-installed anything that was to do with it. I have ran my Norton 360 scan which has detected nothing. I downloaded Malware Bytes free anti-malware software scanner which detected nothing. I have reset the home page to default but this does nothing. I have tried re setting firefox, no result. Please can you help me remove this search engine off firefox, nothing seems to work and it is very irritating. Thanks

Is there a known issue with Firefox 21 and Citrix ICA Client?

After Upgrading to FireFox 21 my browser no longer can detect that I have the Citrix ICA Client installed and prompts me every time I attempt to launch an .ica file from the internet. Upon multiple installs of the ICA Client from the prompts including Uninstalling it completely then reinstalling it I ignored the prompt and tried to launch the .ica file. It will launch only 1 .ica window no matter how many .ica files I click on. (Firefox 20 would allow me to launch several citrix sessions at a time.) Also when the 1 citrix session is open if I minimize it or bring another program to the foreground the .ica window becomes black and is no longer usable since you can no longer see anything in that window. Is this a known issue?? Currently I have had to unistall version 21 and found a version 20.0.1 that Ive installed disabling the automatic updates.

I have been having issues with certain pages loading correctly but have not been able to resolve the issues. I also tried to create a screen shot to no avail apparently. It's is not with every website only some here and there. Sometimes if I navigate aware and come back to that page it can resolve the issues but more times than not it does not fix the problem. I can also use another web browser such as google chrome or firefox and not run into the same issue. The exact same page will load correctly and as expected. I appreciate your assistance in this matter and I have done some of the trouble shooting steps noted in the frequently asked questions and what you all have suggested to resolve the issue such as clearing the cache, etc but it does not seem to resolve the problem long term

Heuristics will allow addons to keep working after upgrading they said. Firefox won't break your addons they said.

19->20 Firefox broke the addon (though installing the identical version again got it working again) 20->21 Firefox broke the addon again.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/SnapLinksPlus/

While they're trying to get the addon working, and for some a beta version works, for those of us who need these addons it means we need to downgrade Firefox. What's the best way to go about it? (PS: I don't care about security or what new features are in FF21 - I'd rather have working addons)

This is still prevalent and I have had to disable the plugin for shockwave player. Similar was happening with adobe flash player but since the Firefox update it isn't happening as much. Is there a solution to solve this or is it a Adobe issue that they need to fix.? When it hangs or crashes it sometimes takes out downloads. I rolled back to the older dowload box because if I closed the browser it took the downloads out. Downloads don't crash as much with the older download box but with Firefox 20 ( with the new download style) the downloads died quickly with an error message the "file could not be read"

Also, is it okay to enable my add ons now, they were accentuating the problem as well.

I installed Divx and accidentally clicked "please make Bing.com my default browser".

Now I have an issue that every time I open a new tab it defaults to bing.com.

I have uninstalled divx, started firefox in fail safe mode (no plugins or extensions), and I have changed about:config values: browser.newtab.url = about:newtab browser.startup.homepage;about:newtab = about:newtab and the problem still persists!

How do I get back to my normal newtab format?

I had read that in FF v22 Web RTC (Real Time Connections, PeerConnection and DataChannels) are enabled by default. This is a big no-no for me.

Where can I turn them off, is it possible to do this in one click (as for JavaScript or images)?

Will they bypass disabled in Windows Remote Access service?

Anything else I can do to block peer-to-peer and any remote access to my computer, while reading the Web will remain possible?

Thank you.

In my company's internet it is problematic to use https. However firefox always defaults to https connections (e.g. when making a google search from the search toolbar, or when typing an address bar starting with "www"); therefore always bringing up an "This Connection is Untrusted" alert page and making me have to manually go to the address bar and changing the "https" to "http". In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer it is very easy to set the browser to use http instead of https. However, I can't seem to find this option in firefox. Any ideas?

Nothing works, start playing any youtube video and at the 1 second mark the error appears. It doesn't matter if the video is embedded.

Curiously, youtube does work in chrome.
