On startup FF shows standard screen but then switches to a global map and sstuff relating to "What one wants" in the system. There is a global map etc.

When FF starts up it comes on with the standard screen but quickly switches to a screen showing a global map and a short video of children stating what they want in their experiences in a system. This programming for this is embedded in the start up sequence ( I looked already) and is clearly from Firefox - not mal-wear or other "bad" thing.

I cannot get rid of it, it is distracting and a pain besides since it often by random movement of the courser hits the spot where the video is activated.

I need to remove the programming sequence which initiates this.

I posed the question already and did not get a responsive return which helped.

I still have not been able to resolve this issue. Below are the 3 comments I made and the 1 answer I received, which did not solve the issue:

A few days ago, Yahoo decided to put up a vertical section on the right side of the game window that takes up 30% of the screen in the game. I have not been able to get rid of it. I asked the Yahoo Customer Care rep and she said that it is not supposed to happen as the game should not be stopped by the ads and that I should try with another Browser. I tried it with Chrome and that ad section was not there with Chrome. I was told that it was probably a browser issue and I did disable most of the add-ons and plug-ins but it did not work. Any suggestions as to how I can get rid of that vertical ad section?

"the one answer I received":

There are add-ons available from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/ to help prevent ad pop-ups and ads to show plainly.

This problem is not a pop-up. First of all the problem did not start until Yahoo changed their set up for ads in Yahoo Games. Once it did start, the ads do not "pop-up", it is a vertical bar that is there all the time. You cannot get rid of it. By the same token, it is not a Yahoo Problem since the problem does not exist using another server. Yahoo says it has to do with some add-ons or plug-ins in Firefox that is causing the problem. As you can see by the screen picture, one third of the game screen has a vertical ad area. I want to get rid of it.


I did add the "Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel" add-on but it did not help, at least not with the game section where the vertical ad panel is presently located. Any other suggestions?

Prior to Firefox 29, using status 4 evar, I was able to mouse over a link, and I could see where that link would point. This allowed decide whether I should avoid clicking on the link. Unfortunately, this no longer seems to be working in the new Firefox. I have downloaded the Classic Theme Restorer, and it doesn't seem to be helping.

Any ideas?

I now have a grey menu line at the top and I had chosen to have an orange one I can't find out how to get it back. Also there used to be a Firefox button on the extreme top left of the menu bar and in this I could choose to print preview before I printed off a page - sometimes the orientation needed to be adjusted - and I can't find this. This button used to also allow me to send a link to the page by email - where is this? I really hate it when useful features like this are just taken away just because somebody thinks that it will be more "modern". I also play some Facebook games and there can be a delay in these. My husband keeps telling me to change over to Chrome as this works faster on his PC which is right next to mine. I have resisted so far but I must admit that this latest "update" has left me wondering if I should stay with Firefox!!!!
