I am desperate to remove Delta Search from my new tab page. What do I do after I open about:config? I have done at least a dozen resets, have removed DS via add/remove, am running a virus scan at present...this is TERRIBLE, and there HAS to be a way to get rid of it. When I do a reset, the new tab page is what I WANT...my previously saved pages. However, when I CLOSE FF and reopen, the new page is, once again, Delta. Can you hear me SCREAM? Can you see my TEARS? I am really fed up. Thanks for getting back to me with a solution that WORKS. jo

When I open a new tab, instead of my home page (google.com) I get a bing search page. I do not get the "top sites" as I do on my other computers. I have checked them to see if I could mimic, but no luck. In the article about removing unwanted pages, the article shows a screen shot of a button in the shape of a square with little dots making the square shape. The article says to click that button and then reset my tab. My new tab pages do not have that button. It shows the down arrow for downloads and the home button for home page. I've looked in the add-on manager and the bing toolbar is not there. I've also gone through the Tools/Options and can find nothing there to get rid of the bing toolbar. My homepage is set to google.com in the options. Also followed the steps for about:config and after making the change, new tabs still come up with bing (and its ads). What do I do to get my home page to display? Thanks

we have firefox esr version which we use in kiosk mode. we want to disable navigation bar but should be able to open multiple tabs and access them.

Now problem is : once i enable tabs and navbar is hidden. then we are not able to access next/previous tabs. key shortcut (Ctrl+tab or Ctrl+shift+tab) doesn't work. so we can not see another tab.

once i show navbar/tabs then address bar/search bar is also visible which we don't want.

Our requirement is to see multiple tabs with no address/search bar. Please provide help on how we can go to solve this.

Thanks

Whenever I click a link, it opens in a new tab. This just started almost a week ago, but I didn't change any settings or click anything--it just started doing it by itself. It is extremely irritating, because it just increases the number of tabs I have.

I have my browser set to restore the previous session when I open Firefox, and new tabs to open blank. With these settings, I used to be able to open new windows and have my homepage load, while keeping the behaviors previously mentioned intact, but when I open a new window now, I get a blank page.

Is there any way to restore the previous behavior, or are all tabs now seen as the same now, whether they're opened as part of new windows or existing windows?

Now I have an issue that every time I open a new tab it defaults to bing.com.

I have uninstalled divx, started firefox in fail safe mode (no plugins or extensions), and I have changed about:config values: browser.newtab.url = about:newtab browser.startup.homepage;about:newtab = about:newtab and the problem still persists!

HI, I've been struggling the last few days to get back all the opened tabs I had in my Firefox window. My deault setting was to resume the Firefox session from where it was when I last exited Firefox. But some weird toolbar got somehow installed in my PC and when I uninstalled it all my browsing history was deleted (from all my browsers, IE, FF and chrome) and my precious Firefox tabs were gone.

These tabs are really priceless, I collected them through some months of research and it would be impossible to redo all my work. Although I managed to find some of these sites in my browing history when I restored all of it via the "restore" function in places.sqlite file properties (in the "previous versions" tab), it's impossible to find the other sites I need by checking every visited site in my browsing history, there are thousands of them and it would be the same as starting all over from scratch.

I know too that it was unbelievably stupid of me to not bookmark these sites before, but please, isn't there any way of retrieving those lost tabs? What irks me the most is the fact that the tabs weren't loaded when I opened Firefox, but only when I clicked on them, which means that I have no clue on which dates to find the tabs, since they were only visited at the time I found them, and never loaded again.

I'd be most grateful to any hint that might solve this problem. Thank you for your attention.

PS: I should mention I've already tried Window's "System Restore" but to no avail; when I open Firefox, after having a previous session restored, it will display the same tabs I left recently (as opposed to my previous tabs, that remain lost). My OS is a win7 64 bit Ultimate

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!

Hello !

So I have seen this question posted before but the author decided to just switch version, which is not exactly a future proof solution

So Firefox changed the way ctrl-tab works to display the last tab used, and while I don't think this is a bad idea, I'm just very used to quick switching by mashing ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab, and I don't really want to try and remember the exact order I used my many tabs to navigate between them.

Isn't there somewhere where I could toggle this ?

Thanks !

When I open Firefox in a new tab, I would like to have it open to a page of my choice. Right now, it seems there is no way to change that, but previous versions had this feature, and I put my computer to "google.com" for example, so I could be ready to search, whenever I pressed "command-T" (for new tab.) Are we stuck on Yahoo, now, or whatever Firefox chooses for new tabs, or is there a way to change this?

I updated to the latest version of firefox a few days ago (25.0.1). I had to reset my homepage - no problem. I then tried to reset the new tab page to show the history. This is proving impossible! I have gone to the same place - Options>General & Tab - to find where I can do it and nothing. More importantly the when the new tab opens it shows this horrible link: http://www.google.es/firefox?gws_rd=cr&ei=o5WOUq23LsqO0AXrhoCYCw which I don't trust. It's the firefox homepage for Spain. When I click in the address bar I have to click and drag the cursor to highlight all the the text before I can change the address. Before you just had to click once and type the first letter before your history options appeared. On top of all this there is a message "you're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web!" I have checked and reinstalled and everything else seems to tell me that I have the latest version.

Really really annoying. Please help
