I update BitTorrent to the latest version today and after that my search bar on the top right changed from Google to "Conduit Search" That was easily fixed with two clicks but for some reason it also changed what happens when I open a new tab from the default new tab page with the pinned book marks to this: http://i.imgur.com/dmU463W.png

I looked up some stuff to help and found the information on "about:config" to change the "browser.newtab.url" value to "about:newtab" however when I attempt to do that I get the window that is supposed to come up prompting me to input the new value, I put in the value and nothing changes, it remains with this Conduit Search stuff. Closing Firefox afterwards does not fix the problem and I have tried the process several times to make sure it was not just a one time bug. It also does not work for any value as leaving it blank or changing it to "about:blank" did not solve the issue.

hi i currently have the Yahoo toolbar, absolutely hate it. want to get rid of it. I downloaded the CenturyLink toolbar from CenturyLink. I installed the CenturyLink, had Firefox add them, but the toolbar isn't showing up any where. I even disabeled the Yahoo toolbar, which I still hate & want to remove. Beings how I'm still a newbie here at Firefox (love the security), hated Chrome, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong & why the toolbar isn't showing up ? oh, one other thing. when my mom got the last Firefox update, something happened. when she tries to get on Firefox there is an "xpsomething error" I've tried to uninstall firefox from the add/remove & it won't let me uninstall. Just got her started on Firefox & she loves it also. can anybody help me to somehow remove firefox & after restarting, get back on IE9 & get firefox back ? I thank you all for the help. Love Firefox !!!

This problem was raised 2 years ago but was never resolved to the user then and the problem they were having the same one I came looking for an answer to.

I need to be able to allow individual sites to "automatically redirect" while preventing other sites from having that privilege.

As it is now, I use Opera to access the problem site when Firefox won't allow it. I REALLY DON'T want to change this setting universally.

with hardware acceleration enabled in firefox, the youtube play icon is, well, i can only describe it as looking like the side profile of an jet fighter. when i disable hardware acceleration the icon appears like the normal triangle. i have tried updating my video drivers, no success. i have reset firefox, and reinstalled. cleared all cookies, and i am at a loss. its not preventing me from watching videos, it is just an eyesore, it looks wrong. this has been going on for a week now, where before it was fine. i have an Nvidia GTX 560 Ti. 314 driver set.

My Firefox won't make bookmarks for Wikipedia articles, even when use the bookmark menu and the right-click window. The bookmark creation box won't show up when I do either, but works fine for pretty much every other site. How can I fix this?

I am currently using firefox version 23.0.1 Before updating firefox I was able to save all my form data on a particular website. Now there are fields that do not save any and some that will save 2 of the same entries. No matter what I do I cannot get firefox to save more than 2 entries for each field. Previously there would be 20-30 saved entries for each field, not any more. Please let me know how to fix this problem.

I absolutely HATE IE, so I hope we can find a solution to my problem.

Pc info: Win 7 64 bit, 2.9 pentium with 4 gig ram video: radeon HD 3800

Three days ago I was infected by some malware. While i had it i could not watch videos on youtube in full screen unless i constantly moved my mouse. I uninstalled the malware and it didn't help. I reinstalled videos card drivers (even tried the new beta drivers), firefox, adobe flash, java 32 and 64 bit, and performed these steps: http://techlogon.com/2012/06/04/flash-player-crashes-in-all-web-browsers/

I've reset Firefox, emptied cache in Firefox, and manually deleted all program temp folders I could find. Also, I have disabled all add-ons and plugins, and even ran Firefox in safemode. Nothing seems to work. There may be a few things I've forgotten that I've tried.

Script: https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/yk/r/w50KHoJTfoZ.js:26

so, I have read the many other threads on this problem:

1. I just installed firefox for the first time - this happens on facebook and many other sites

2. I have reset firefox - did not fix the problem

3. I have checked all my extensions and plug ins for up to date

4. I turned off hardware acceleration

5. I tried disabling all my plug ins

6. I used to use firefox, but it started doing this and I was never able to resolve this and went to chrome.

I am using Win 7. No problem, ofr the most part, using IE or Chrome, I just wanted to try firefox again. Does it not work with win 7?

I have windows XP home edition. version 2002 serves pk 3. I use firefox browser 23.0. I checked add ons for up-dates and it said VLC need to be up-dated. So I went to add/remove progs and deleted VLC run atf and re-booted. then installed the new up-date "2.0.8." then looked in firefox again and done a rerun of the up-date. It was still saying it need to be up-dated. so I done it all again. same thing happened. It's 2.0.8 on My laptop and it's 2.0.6 in firefox. I've disabled it for now, because it said it was a threat. I can't delete it from firefox either. any help would be appreciated. Thank You.

Hi,

Since Updating to FireFox 23, 1) When I connect to the internet First it takes about 5mins for the google page to load and the green wheel Keeps spinning

2) when i click to open a website it takes ages to load aswell. sometimes they only half load with images missing and all.

3) When on FaceBook or Twitter, Images/Pictures are slow loading And Pages Freeze or continue loading when i Move between the tabs on Facebook and Twitter(e.g Home, Connect Buttons)

would these be problems with the Update or would they be my internet Connection (Even though i have a good connection)

Thanks
