I had a virus that redirected my web address thru something called Conduit when I entered the url in the address bar. Geek Squad was able to remove the virus (took two attempts). After that I noticed the Secure Search icon in the Search Engine bar when Secure Search is selected is a small light gray rectangle, containing a grid, with the upper right corner of the rectangle turned down and the center of the grid contains a darker gray square. However, when the Manage Search Engines option is clicked the list of available search engines shows Secure Search with the conventional icon: Red McAfee Shield emblazoned with white M. I am concerned this apparent discrepancy indicates that Geek Squad did not completely remove the virus. I must admit this apparent discrepancy could have been there all along, is “normal”, but I only noticed it after the virus was removed. If it really is a problem, how do I get it fixed? I appreciate any enlightenment available.

Hi, I am not IT savvy, so hope I can explain this well enough.

I use Firefox as my default web browser, but reluctantly feel I need to move away because I cannot resolve a problem I have with Adobe Flash crashing regularly every day.

I have restarted Firefox, but the problem is still there. Same when I restart my laptop.

I have even reset Firefox, following instructions in a thread I found on here. The problem went away for a few days, but is back again. This is so frustrating. Friends tell me to give up on Firefox, like they have, but I'd rather find a solution if I can.

I don't watch videos, so typical sites I have problems with are eBay, Facebook and 'Street View' on Google Maps.

Other info......I am in the UK and my laptop uses Windows 7. I have checked the Firefox Plug-In page, and all my plug-ins are showing as up to date.

Please help.

I switched browsers from Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox. I need to uninstall some unnecessary programs to increase space on my computer. Can I uninstall IE without losing important documents? All of my favorites seem to have been transferred over, however I'm not quite sure because it wasn't done manually. Is that possible?

I've been using Opera till now and I'm used to all the actions that this browser supports, so that's why my question - "How to get the tabs to minimise when I click on one?" Is there some add-on for that or can it be set up in the settings somewhere? If it's an add-on, I haven't found it, so can you point me in the right direction, and if it can be done in settings, please tell me how.

Hi!

HTML5 is great and I hope to get rid of Flash as soon as possible. That said, something is still bothering me when I play an HTML5 video (on youtube for instance): the screensaver is still on even though I'm full-screen.

Is there a config I missed or is it a bug within Firefox?

(I'm using Arch Linux with GNOME)

When I click on a .pdf link, Firefox downloads the file to my desktop. This is fine.

Sometimes, however, I would prefer that Firefox simply open the .pdf document in a new window. I know it used to work this way, but it stopped some time ago. How can I control this behavior?

I looked in Preferences > Applications and selected on "pdf". Two entries showed up under "Content Type":

 "Preview.app Document (application/po..." 

and

 "Portable Document Format (PDF)".  

Both entries have the same "Action": "Use PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 (in Firefox)"

Oops. I just figured it out. The PDF entry (only) has an extra pulldown option under Action: "Preview in Firefox". I tried it and it works!

I guess the old PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 must've quit working some time ago.

I restored my Windows yesterday. After reinstalling Firefox I am facing problems with my all google accounts. I am not able to login to Gmail, Blogger and others. Today, I even tried 'Reset Firefox.' But that also didn't help. I checked my accounts on other browsers installed viz IE 11 and Chrome, on which Gmail is working absolutely fine. Kindly help so that I don't have to switch to browsers I don't like.

I am new to Firefox. Before I used IE and I recorded a lot of Favorites with 24 folders each of them having one or more subfolders. At the same time I am migrating from XP to W7 on a different PC. I copied all my favorites into C:/USER/Jacques/Favoris (IE architecture) Then I attempted to import my favorites to the FF bookmark. The 13 first folders have been added, and the 11 other are not included. My understanding is that the maximum folders FF can import is 13. I have a screen shot where I show the side by side the bookmarks and my former IE favorites but cannot add it to this post... Thanks for a rapid solution to stay with FireFox. J. Bouchard

My location bar only shows "Bookmark this page" and the history drop-down on the right-hand side. It used to have a button that switched between Refresh and Stop depending on whether a page was currently loading, which is no longer there.

It happened after restarting FF to install an add-on. I'm not sure if FF updated at the same time; it might have. I'm now on 27.0.1 and I had installed HideMyAss, which installed its own toolbar button, and in addition the Refresh and Stop buttons were no longer in my URL bar, but now they were separate buttons in the Navigation Toolbar.

I cannot get them to go back into the URL bar. I have uninstalled the add-on, I have tried to drag-n-drop the buttons onto the URL bar, and I have tried "Restore default set" in the toolbar customization dialog. None of these work.

The program works fine while I am actively using it. When it is in the background while using another application, or when I wake the computer from sleep and bring up Firefox, the program has stalled/become unresponsive. This phenomenon started approximately two weeks ago. I have turned all add-ons acquired the past six months in an attempt to eliminate conflicts, but the program still freezes when not active at least once a day.

The NY Times Headlines daily email always has several links to videos. They used to play automatically when selected; but for the last couple of weeks they do not. I only get the Times video frame, but the area where the video should play just remains black. I have no problem seeing videos on YouTube, Facebook, etc. I also see the Times videos when I link to them in Internet Explorer; but they will not play in Firefox. As far as I know my Flash, Java, etc. are all up to date. Please advise! Thanks.
