When I open a webpage which is in French, how can I get Firefox to askme if I want the webpage translated into English? Firefox used to open a strip at the top of the webpage which allowed me to click yes to translate the page. Firefox 3.6.13 does not do this now. I have found that Translation Add-On's do not do the trick easily. Any ideas please?

I have a Google redirect virus which redirects every hit I click on in every search engine, in every browser, to a completely unrelated website. No anti-virus software I've tried can get rid of it. Help.

Locked due to age. If you still have a problem, please start a new thread

Basically the Google redirect virus is caused by a trojan with rootkit capability, and so whenever I click on a link on Google, it redirects me to a completely unrelated site. I think I got it on there because of downloading pirated software (patches, cracks, keygens) to avoid paying: so stealing software didn't pay off :(

I know you guys aren't specialised in internet security, but can you help?

Whenever I download something, especially smaller files such as a .jpg or .torrent, Firefox scans the download for viruses. In theory this is a good thing. In practice, at least for me, it means my browser is locked up for as long as 2 minutes (average is closer to about 10 seconds) while it scans the file that I have ZERO concern over a virus in the first place. Now, it's entirely possible that because I'm not a gaming nerd my computer is "slow" by elitist standards (2gHz is slow?! 2mB RAM is slow?!), but that is neither here nor there; I want this "service" gone and I want it gone now.

I am trying to run the firefox from firefox-4.0.tar.bz2 on CentOS 5.6 and get the error message,

./firefox-bin: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by firefox/libxul.so)

Firefox does not start.

I thought having a copy of the library in the local directory would help, so I made a link:

ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.8 libstdc++.so.6

then I got the error message,

./firefox-bin: /firefox/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by firefox/libxul.so)

My version of glibc is:

$ rpm -q glibc glibc-2.5-58.el5_6.2 glibc-2.5-58.el5_6.2

I landed on hxxp://getsecure.cz.cc/firefox-updates

The page opens a dialog requesting to download an update. The dialog blocks all other interaction with ff.

I can kill ff from the Windows Task Manager, but when I restart, the offending page opens as one of the tabs. ff Safe Mode would allow me to delete bookmarks but I don't want to do that.

I often need to duplicate a tab but I cannot do so quickly in Firefox. I can copy the link, open a new tab and paste the link, but a simple shortcut in the 'right click' menu of the tabs would be nice. IE8 has this feature (Ctrl+K).

My Mac HD software got damaged and I have to do a complete system reinstall. I have a complete backup using Time Machine and want to restore all my Firefox bookmarks and prefs, especially all the stored usernames and passwords. Where do I find the right files? I assume when I have the files, I just copy them into the new software, right?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
