Just last couple of days starting to get the yellow band with the message about a web page slowing down browser, Can stop it by clicking on button and all returns to normal though sometimes it does show an "odd" web address when I do that I don't recognise. Tried doing a full system virus check but nothing found. When using Microsoft Edge the issue disappears. Any thoughts Am running Windows 10

These have happened within the last few weeks. 1. When I do a search, Google automatically switches to Yahoo Search, How do I stop yahoo search? 2. In Options, When I click on extensions, add on, the page flashes for a second then reverts to a blank new tab?? 3. The 'help tab' on the 'menu bar', when i try to open 'Troubleshooting Information", the page flashes then reverts to a blank new tab??

I tried starting in slow mode, but that didn't change anything. Is there something I can do to restore these problems, I'm 67 and not that savvy with computer language, so please simplify any solutions you may recommend.

Thank you, JP

PS: I don't understand what I am suppose to do in the following section below ? Add images?? Troubleshoot Information; Share Data????

On Friday,30th. i've installed "MajorAV". They promise within 24 hrs u'll get the Installation Key but no 4 days later there is still no key been sended. Next problem: "MajorAV" can not be reached, there is no possibility to write a (short) message: what's happening with my key I payed for ! It would be helpfully if i could send just this short msg and askin "What's on with my keyI've been paying for !" Always if I try to open "MajorAV" a page will open with "Invalid Page" or "Page cannot be opened" or others. I tried the so called "Support@majorav.com.com." Do you think this "MajorAV" could be a fake ?? (Question by Rüdiger Dresler, <syasgaard@gmx.de>)

Am not computer savvy, but know just enough to get by with performing most routine desktop usage tasks .. I am running Windows 8 on a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop which uses Intel's built in HD graphics 2500.

Up until Firefox update 82.0.2, I had no issues with Firefox whatsoever. Applying the update to 83.0 resulted in numerous error messages along the lines that my display driver had stopped responding (but successfully recovered).

While glancing through some of the event error logs, as best I recall having seen, at least one made a reference that Firefox could not access the graphics card (or something to that effect).

I then opted to perform a system restore and rolled back my system to where I was once again using Firefox update 82.0.2 successfully and without issues. FYI, I am using the last intel display driver available for my Dell, so updating my display driver isn't an option.

Unless and until others report a similar issue, guess I will continue using Firefox as updated to 82.0.2 and not downloading any further updates. Any comments would be appreciated.

after discovering the windows sysinternalssuite,.. i've noticed google is keeping like 50 or so pipes running in the background, AFTER i've closed chrome,.. but interestingly, WHILE having firefox open - is there any kind of software i can install in firefox to prevent google from doing whatever it is they're doing,.. presumably sending to themselves illegally, what i'm searching for when using firefox!!

this is a quick cut&paste of the pipes active well after chrome's closure,.. i checked in task manager,..

as a result of the pipelist64.exe command's result (the 1st number is the number of instances, the 2nd max-instances)

Not sure why this page deleted my question while trying to share data but I'll start again.

I'm getting Malwarebyte alerts from something in firefox.exe, it's called restoro. It's not a program that's in my control panel so I can't delete it. It was quarantined but seconds later it was trying again. I included an image of the last scan done Nov. 28. I've deleted firefox before but it came back when I installed again. Is it something that firefox is supposed to have or is it some trojan that's latched onto firefox?

Whenever I launch Firefox my Graphics Drivers temporarily stop working. I get a balloon message on the taskbar, saying they are not working, then screen reloads and after third prompt all is then good to go and I can start browsing.

This has just recently started. I have uninstalled and then re installed, no difference.

It is rather annoying. I have version 83.0

Thanks
