I have to turn this feature OFF but FF updated itself to 38.01 and I've had MULTIPLE problems. I see there are solutions however I do NOT have the time to even manipulate hardware acceleration.

BTW, I sent for my user name (which I'd forgotten) 45 minutes ago and it still has not arrived...

I do not even KNOW the version prior to 38.01 but it was stable.

Dell vostra LAPTOP (wireless) XP pro sp3 AVAST! free version (2014.9.0.2021) EPSON WF 545 printer (on the network).

MAIN PROBLEM IS TRYING TO PRINT: (Other programs do print) Printer's s/w U-T-D (Symptom => crashing....)

PLEASE ADVISE on how to obtain older ff versions. Thank you so much!

P.S. I have now spent another 15 minutes looping to try and ask this question.

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

OS is Windows 7 HP. Running Firefox 54.0.1. After a refresh of FF I now get a pop-up when closing it calling for me to delete elements of my browsing session. We have two machines with the same OS and FF and have never seen this pop-up before. Both machines have Click n Clean which takes care of deleting history, etc., and shows as active in the extensions list. Note that the pop-up has the FF icon. I don't need this and have tried various menu settings but it remains. Would appreciate advice on how to cancel it, thanks in advance!

The other day I had an update for a program I already have. Like always it asked me if I wanted to install some toolbar and whatnot. And like always I clicked all the "No" boxes and updated like normal thinking it would honor my request.

It didn't.

Thinking I had just missed something I went to my Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, uninstalled it and thought that was that.

It wasn't.

I get on this morning and it's still trolling my search engines and pages. I went to the Firefox help page to find any solutions but everything I've tried has failed! I've tried the "about:config" method where I reset all the Babylon stuff (they just come back when I restart) and I tried replacing it in the "keyword" section (it didn't even notice apparently).

I then ran Spybot four times and even ran a new program called Malwarebytes and it didn't change a thing. I even tried System Restore. Twice. Now I'm stuck with this program taking over my FF by adding advertisements in dumb places like all over Youtube and even in my typed text!

I'm at my wits end! There HAS to be some foolproof way of getting rid of it! PLEASE HELP!!

How Do You Stop New Links/Tabs Stacking On Top of Each Other in one 'pile' on far left above address bar?

Whenever I open a new link/website tab FF stacks each site (tab, that is) on top of each other rather than having all the tabs displayed across the top. I want to have all NEW website tabs not stacked on top of each other. Presently, I have to 'X' out of each open tab that is in a stack to get to the one buried to the one I want below. I also do not want to hover over the FF icon on taskbar to display all open windows/tabs (that I can barely make out) to try to find what I am looking for .

I can't get each new link/tab to open next to the one to the left. I want the tabs to look like first photo. All the tabs -websites are stacked on top of each other to the far right (second photo). I want my FF pages/tabs to properly look like the first screen shot on left (this shot is from my laptop....issue is with desktop computer), and not the screen shot on right that shows one tab/windows but has several more websites/tabs under it.

I do not have any tab extensions installed and all my tab options are unchecked in Options. I think this issue is somewhere in the preferences (about:config). No clue where..

Also, is there a way to have all newly open tabs open first on the far LEFT rather the far right.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, Somehow, Babylon toolbar and search provider got installed. And now I want to get rid of it. So, 1) I uninstalled it from "add or remove programs" in the control panel 2) cleared out the "add-ons" from all the browsers and even 3) searched the registry for "Babylon" and deleted all the traces of it 4) searched C: drive for the keyword "Babylon" and deleted all the folders

But still to my surprise, the search results of about:home in Firefox 11.0 came out of "Babylon"

Firefox Homepage Hijacked by Claro-Search

    • RESETTING DOES NOT WORK**

Hello, I can recently acquired the Search Engine Malware? (I think it is a Malware)

http://isearch.claro-search.com/?affID=114169&tt=120812_bandext_3312_4&babsrc=HP_iclro&mntrId=907087e4000000000000002185985c90

I can not for the life of me take back the "HOMEPAGE" I have searched around everywhere and found how to take over the "NEW TAB" issue and it is back to Google.ca.

But I have yet to find a single issue with the Homepage being automatically hijacked and sending me straight back to the website no matter what I do to change the URL.

I have done the following things.

1: Removed the Toolbar from Add-ons

2: Removed the Toolbar from Control Panel

3: Shut down my computer and rebooted into Safe Mode - Networking to run Malware and other virus scanners.

4: Changed my Hosts File

5: Turned on Firefox in Safe-Mode resetting all defaults.

6: Changed the URL several times. ____________________________________________________

I can set the homepage to "Blank" which solves the issue. BUT I want Claro off my computer for good not just covered up with settings.


NOTE: I do not have expert knowledge in computerized configuration so I am at a lose into doing something like Manually checking my systems files and such to remove this issue.

If you know how to fix this, Please be detailed and simple.

Also! If i type anything into the search bar incorrectly it automatically uses iSearch-Claro to search for results.

My OS is Windows 7 Pro 64 bit; using Firefox ver 15.0. I downloaded Babylon tool bar and related apps because they were associated with a tool manual that I wanted to review. I then discovered how invasive these apps are. Successfully removed Babylon downloader and Tool bar via Start | Control Panel | program menu. However I notice that "Search the web (Babylon)" is still listed in the drop down menu of search engine options. I have defaulted my search engine to Google, and I can delete the Babylon option, but it returns every time when I close my browser and then return to my FF Mozilla home page. How can I permanently remove Babylon as a search engine option?

I recently refreshed Firefox browser & found it had been taken over by Speedbit Search. When I have been using Google and then pressed the Home button to return to the Firefox homepage this was when I found Speedbit Search homepage. So I have been unable to access my Firefox bookmarks, passwords, history. I refreshed again and got back the Firefox homepage without the bookmarks and saved passwords, but I think Speedbit is still on the computer. Thank you, nick8000

The Messenger page cycles and then goes blank, but with the full top-menu items showing.

When I try the Notifications pull-down it just cycles, and never shows the notifications.

These two FB features work perfectly on Safari.

Is this a Firefox problem, or a FB problem?
