An ad "popup" has injected itself into Foxfire. Bottom left corner of browser window is populated with an ad window. It floats the screen. With Google it seems to work but under Bing it stalls and scripts crash. Often the crashing browser. It's not an addon or extension but the net does have info on how to remove a similar addon. Perhaps their first version of this more malicious item. McAfee and ClamXAV don't see it. The only way to actually even identify it's source is to look at the Page Info, Media and look at the image locations. This article seems to describe the identical problem I've experience but no posted solution. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18540776/shopping-guide-onlines-com-superfish-com-injected-script-into-firefox

I am using dreamweaver to create a new website. When testing it the home page (named index.html) does render properly in firefox but looks fine in other browsers. I found out that if I name it default.html or index.htm it look normal. Just the file index.html looks wrong.

Hello!I have a little problem with managing my bookmarks on my several computers. I suppose, there is more comfortable solution of this problem, but I dont know it. What I do: 1. I add some bookmarks on my computer 1. 2. On my computer 2 I have already saved some bookmarks. 3. Make a copy of my bookmarks on computer 1 and install it on my computer 2. But I want only to add bookmarks from c1 to c2, that c2 doesnt have.

What I want: To have all bookmarks from each computer on both of them.

The most simple solution is to have cloud database of bookmarks. Is there any opportunity to do this?

Hi,

I know I have found this solution before, but can't find it again. Please help?

In FF 27.0.1, when I put the cursor in the search bar, type words and hit enter, it starts the search in the current tab. How do I make FF always start the search in a new tab when I hit enter from the search bar?

Thanks!

Today for the first time, I am getting two promotion ads that regularly change, on the left side of my screen when I am in email, right where my expanded folders normally appear. I tried "expand" and just get a tiny line at the top of these ads with one or two expanded folders named. How can I get rid of these promotion ads?
