At least half the time when I click on a bookmark or on a link in facebook or any web page , i get redirected to a totally different web page then what I was seeking. I have searched for help with this but can't find an answer. I scanned for malware, started in firefox safemode but it still happens. Also my internet speed through any browser is half as fast as it tested on the technicians computer who came to the house to check my internet speed. Why is that?

My default search setting keeps reverting back to Yahoo after I reset my computer. Closing Firefox keeps the one I change it to but restarting the computer changes it.

I can't open the history sidebar. The "Show your History" option opens it's tab fine (the drop-down that says "Show History Sidebar", "Clear Recent History..." ect.). But, when clicking on the "Show History Sidebar", nothing comes up. I can use the "Show All History" option but the sidebar doesn't open for some reason.

duplicate of /questions/1038370

The latest update of Firefox installed Foxydeal without my permission!!! Please inform me immediately how to remove this program. It is unwanted, intrusive, bothersome and slows down my computer! Up until now, I have loved using Firefox, if this is the way they are going to operate, I will use some other program.

I have tried all the 'fixes' that I found in the forum and nothing works. I must change browsers when I have to do anything that involves copy/paste. How can I permanently allow copy/paste on any web site/ any form/ anything I choose to copy/paste anywhere any time? I thank you for your safety concerns, but I am over 21 and own this computer.

Once or more every day (typically overnight) I receive a text saying, "Recientemente se inici sesi n en tu cuenta desde Firefox on Windows." Ignoring the grammatical errors/misspellings, it roughly translates to your Firefox account was recently logged into/a session was started. Each time the message is from short code 792273. Is this message legitimately from Firefox? If so, how do I get my number removed from whatever account it's been applied to in error?

Some how I stepped in it. I tried Control Panel, TaskManager & RegEdit and it is still there. I had FireFox as my default browser & IE as a back up. Thiis only attacked FireFox. I uninstalled FireFox and it attacked IE. There is an option where you can run IR with no add-ons & that is what I'm using now. How do I get rid of blockandsurf so that I can re-install FireFox?
