I downloaded some program from cnet, which used to be a reputable source, but now seems to be riddled with malware. The item I downloaded was not what I thought it was and I promptly removed it from my computer. I also managed to remove snap.do toolbar from all my browsers and my computer with little effort. HOWEVER, I cannot seem to get rid of snap.do. It seems as though it has hijacked the startpage of all my browsers, IE, Chrome,Safari, and Firefox all show snap.do whenever I open them. Of course I can click past this and go to a different page with no trouble. I can reset the homepage in tools-internet options and every time I hit the little house button, I can go back to that homepage. BUT if I turn my browser OFF, when I turn it back on, snap.do is the homepage once more. I have run anti-malware from Kaspersky and Webroot, neither finding anything. I have reset Firefox. I have done a flushDNS through config. I have checked all the settings for the LAN, Internet protocol, and HOSTS folder. I have even reset the router to factory settings. I am at a complete loss. All I want is for my homepage to come up when I open my browser, any browser. Since Firefox is my preferred browser, I am asking you. Please help Running: Windows XP SP3 with latest available Firefox

In previous versions of Firefox, like 19.0, it is a simply matter to disable graphics and/or java. Simply go to Firefox "Tools", "Options", "Content", unclick "Load images Automatically", unclick "Enable JavaScript".

With Firefox 23.0.1, I don't see that as a option. How do I easily disable and enable the graphics and javascript?

I am aware that "Adblock" has some capabilities to do some of this. Although I find Adblock more complicated and have not been able to achieve my goals with it.

This is very important to me.

How to always enable Java 6 with Firefox 18

I implemented Firefox 15 with Java 1.6.0.35-b10 to be used with a particular Vendor's website. The site has no internet except for accessing this vendor's website. Several weeks ago Firefox 15 updated itself to Firefox 18 and blocklisted Java 6. I was able to unblock it, but now each time the users log into the vendor's website, Firefox prompts the user to activate Java 6. My users are nagging me to turn this activate screen off but i cannot figure out how to permanently activate Java 6 on each of these machines. The vendor is not willing to upgrade to Java 7. I have tested Java 7 with the vendor's site and of course it doesn't load. Consequently, I cannot get this machine to roll back to Java 6. Once they activate Java 6 they can use the website. I could switch back to IE8 and use Java 6 with no problem, except that IE8 has a flaw in it. I have read that I cannot install IE9 on Windows XP pro, so I am stuck with Firefox. Windows XP Pro SP3, Firefox 18, and Java 6.

My firefox has been fine for years up until a couple of days ago..

Sometimes when typing into google the autocomplete changes what im typing and sends me to the wrong site.

Any site i visit randomly redirects to worldsocialsurvey.com, and then takes me to loads of shopping pages when i cancel it.

I have ran virus scans with, Trend,Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and used combofix yet all of these say i am clean and nothing is wrong.

I have looked in about:config, and looked for anything that may redirect me like Babylon has a habit of doing, but it all appears to be fine.

Any ideas?

I have the latest version of firefox

I don't know how to add a new website to the New Tab page in FF. All I have are a bunch of blank windows. The FF instructions page tells me to hit a Pin-icon in the top-left corner of a site to pin it to the New Tab window, except I don't see any pin. Any suggestions?

When the window opens to ask if I want to save or not comes up it does so for WORD documents just fine, however, for PDF documents it never asks (it used to). Now it just automatically saves them without asking. I need this changed. I went into applications and changed the setting to always ask but it still is just saving, them no window pops up asking what I want firefox to do with the file like it does with a WORD document. IF I cannot get this resolved I will not be able to continue using firefox. I teach and I have students submitting articles etc in pdf format, I cannot constantly save all pdf files. I just want to open them, review them and then move on. There must be a way to change this so that the window asking what I want firfox to do with the pdf files opens. thank you, kkwright

Hello!

We are FireFox users and seem to be having two issues with Yahoo.

1. No Yahoo webpage will display correctly. No images will show and the webpages seem to display in an un-formatted manner. Also, any Yahoo webpage is very slow to load.

2. Our Yahoo Mail account has recently become un-responsive while using Mozilla FireFox. For example, if we reply to an e-mail in Yahoo, the address does not show up and we cannot type the message. We cannot send mail in Yahoo while using Mozilla FireFox.

I have been talking with Yahoo and they are now saying that it is a Browser issue.

Can anyone assist with this please?

Thanks,
