I have tried about:config changing the URL and I followed the steps for deleting User.JS and I found a User file (did not specify if it was a .JS ) but when I tried opening it I got and error. I also ran the SearchReset Addon but no luck. Well the only other option I see is reinstalling FireFox but I'm affraid I will loose all my bookmarks. Can you pleas help me?

Just recently gotten back into using Firefox. Have been using Chrome. Firefox has one thing that Chrome doesn't have. So I see a number of old Plugs Ins from back when. How do I delete them. I've set to Never Activate. After each Plug In shows RESEARCH. But I don't want to research...I want to delete the old ones. So where do I go from here?

Like others I am tearing my hair out over repeated Flash crashes (FF25.0, win 8.1).No matter what updates etc - you get the idea....

One solution deep in help is 'Re-initializing the plugins database'. This really works but I wonder is there some way I could run this each time I start up Firefox to pre-empt the problem with Flash?

I received a notification to update an Adobe product that is commonly used by internet users daily. After installing, the actual product download failed but now when I open Firefox and Internet Explorer it directs and goes to NationZoom. I go into options and type in yahoo to open program or a new tab and it goes to NationZoom. How do I get rid of it? I found that NationZoom's parent company is Violeter Technology Limited when I did a Google search. NationZoom has it taken over my browsers and the URL I get every time I open up a browser is http://www.nationzoom.com/?type=sc&ts=1386393134&from=tugs&uid= FUJITSUXMHZ2320BHXG1_K61ET8C2A5LUT8C2A5LUX

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I still get the same problem.

Please help, thanks Raymond

Solution to: CPU slows after playing Flash video in Firefox

This is a follow-up to the discussion in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/956602 entitled: "Since upgrade, FIrefox 20 and Adobe flash player 11 eat up all my CPU wieh playing streaming video." I would post it there, but since that thread is "archived" I cannot. I wish there was a way that I could get readers of that thread to see this solution.

On September 3, 2013, I posted that this problem had been affecting my Windows 7 64 bit system as well: After playing a Flash video with the latest Firefox and Flash player, my CPU usage was 100% consumed by an unknown process. The only fix was to reboot, and its effects were only temporary, until playing the next flash video.

Yesterday, a routine scan by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) discovered, and recommended removal of, an application called Link Swift, which according to my Control Panel / Programs and Features, had been installed on 9/1/2013. I have no memory of deliberately installing it, and so I let MBAM uninstall it. Since then my system seems to behave normally again.

For more information see http://malwarefixes.com/remove-pup-optional-linkswift/

I hope this is helpful.

The message comes often some seconds after a new site or adress was opened but not everytime. In earlier versions it was quite rare but now it comes almost with every change. The solution I have found in the web

    1- In the Firefox Address Bar, type in "About:config"
   2 - Click on button to continue
   3 - In search bar, type in "Websocket"
   4 - Set network.websocket.enabled to false 

worked just for the first day. The parameter is still set to false, but it does not help any more. I have the german message but the problem seems to be general and was not solved up to now.

I had already bought a registered version of IDM cc 7.3.49 before I upgraded my Firefox to 25.0.1. After the upgrade Firefox disabled IDM integration, and so I can not download flash videos or anything using IDM. I neither know if upgrading my IDM will solve the problem or not, nor I am not willing to pay for a new IDM upgrade. Please guide me if there is a way to solve the issue, or a way to restore my Firefox to its previous version or versions listed in my upgrade history.

Best Regards,

Alex

Last week, I downloaded Mumble, a voice chat program. I was playing World of Warcraft at the time, and needed to download Mumble on the fly, so I was insufficiently careful and downloaded an extension, Websteroids, at the same time. Websteroids highlights words in text documents which, when scrolled over, lead to advertisements. The claim of the Websteroids website is that it turns a webpage into a meteoroids game.

I have repeatedly disabled and removed it from my extensions list, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, deleted files with the Websteroids name on it, uninstalled it and Mumble, and any other files/programs that I could find from that date.
I've run my antivirus program (AVG), spybot s&d, and lavasoft ad aware and followed the advice from their scans. Nevertheless, Websteriods keeps reinstalling itself without warning.
I have restarted Mozilla in safe mode and I've also deleted anything I could find from the publisher, Creative Island Media, LLC.
The next step that I can think of is a system restore. Before I do that, is there any other less drastic step that might work? 

Thank you

Perhaps this is two issues. Both pooped up with a recent update. I have no yahoo extensions nor add-ons installed.

a) I type a URL into the navigation bar (NOT the search box) and all these 'helpful' suggestions pop up. Make them stop.

b) I type a bad address in the navigation bar (NOT the search box) and I get a Yahoo page of 'helpful' links. Make them stop.

Thanks. I have screenshots I can post too.

Despite having spent several hours searching fruitlessly on the internet, I still cannot find a quick and simple fix for removing Yahoo as the default Firefox search engine. I do not want rubbishy Yahoo search results. I want to use Google, and if Mozilla Firefox won't let me remove the Yahoo default and nominate Google, then I will walk away and use a different web browser.

There is no simple way to dump Yahoo as the default searcher on Firefox 25.0.1. There is no 'search engine preference' tab in the Firefox drop-down tab, and Yahoo does not show up in the add-ons or extensions list. Nor can I change settings in about:config in the browser.newtab.url line. It is almost as if Mozilla is making it impossibly hard for users to chose which search engine they want.

If Mozilla want to make users use Yahoo then they should clearly state that this when they install Firefox software. I do not like being manipulated in such a cynical way.

If anyone can show me how to easily change my settings so that Google becomes my default search engine then I will be grateful. Thanks in advance.

Everything except the web page disappears, which I do not want to happen. I can get the address bar and tabs back by hovering at the top of the page, but they disappear again really quickly and it takes some care to reach the back and forward buttons, or to click on the address bar and type in a new URL, or to click to open a new tab. It is driving me nuts. I haven't reset preferences or anything so I can't imagine why this would happen. There is no menu bar, so I can't find a way to look at and change my preferences. The bar along the bottom, which tells me what else is going on in the computer and the time, is also gone, which is annoying. That doesn't come back when I hover at the bottom of the page. So I have to alt+tab to get around. I only installed Firefox on this machine a couple of weeks ago. I'd be grateful for advice, thanks!
