An email address is automatically displayed in gmail's google search-box. This occurs only when starting Firefox, and clicking anywhere clears the box content. This anomaly only occurs on one machine, not on my laptop, which is sync to the machine in concerns. It doesn't occur in Google Chrome, etc. Small problem, but annoying, nevertheless... one is never careful enough with virus and the likes. Thanks, Pierre

When I try to open the site extratorrent.cc , it just connects to facebook.com for no reason. I tried to connect to the correct address in 3 different ways: 1. From bookmark 2. By typing the address 3. From search engines

But no matter what, it redirects me to facebook or say directly connects to facebook.com It happened with another website but I changed its address in the bookmark and it solved. But this one is not solving. My cache was cleared. I did not try again to clear the cache and check. IE and Chrome are working fine.

EDIT: Problem solved. Reset firefox and it solved the issue.

In addition to messages about Flash Player possibly being unsafe, when I click on the message I'm taken to the page regarding Java. I do have the latest Java add-on installed & activated as well. I've not checked to see if this affects content, but I'll be testing extensively in the next 24 hours by streaming sports events. I've made no changes to any Firefox options (other than add-ons), and I've tried all the suggestions available on your forum - downloading/installing add-ons produce no error messages.

This is neither urgent nor important, so if this is the only report, low priority.

Title pretty mutch sums it up. At youtube's html5 page Media source extensions and MSE & H.264 are not checked even though they were prior to this day(or atleast one of them was. My short term memory sucks). Now its back to having only 360p and 720p as the aviable resolutions. So i tried to search if mozilla changed something in the latest 36 beta 8 patch (which updated for me today), but didn't find anything. I Also tried to install 36 beta 7 but it didnt have any effect on the problem. So is the problem at Mozilla side (they changed something that i dont know?), or is just me? It all just seems so weird to me...

Duplicate (i.e.2) Firefox icons have appeared on my i-Mac toolbar. How do I remove one of these icons, please? Don't want to remove Firefox!! Have tried the "recommended" Apple method, i.e. dragging one of these icons and holding on to it ....then the duplicate icon should disappear. But it doesn't disappear ....the duplicate icon then just "jumps" back on to my tool bar at the bottom of the screen.

Have also tried holding the "command " key and then dragging the unwanted icon and holding on to it ...... but the same thing happens ......instead of disappearing, the icon just "jumps" back to my tool bar. Would be so grateful for any help and advice re the above. Thank you in anticipation of your kind help.

I was browsing when I got a pop up saying someone was sending data into my computer (or something similar) with the choice of allow; allow once or block. It was not clear to me that it was Mozilla trying to access so I said block and quickly discovered I could no longer use Firefox as my browser, A couple of hours snooping around McAfee, Windows Action centre (on Windows 8) have not found a solution.

I am hoping there is a simpler solution that deleting the existing files and re-installing. Cheers Mitch

How do I restore my tabs and tab groups after an update to version 36.0?

I work with many tabs when I use Firefox. I keep them ordered in Tab Groups, which helps separate the different kids of work I do and interests I have. I have been using this environment for years. When I started my work today, Firefox updated to v36.0, and the following behaviour was noticed:

1. There is only one tab group when attempting to show Tab Groups in Panorama, as opposed to around a dozen;

2. Normally though the hidden tabs (the tabs in the same group as the startup group and not the default page) don't download content until clicked, the name of the page and icon, if available, will show on the tab. Presently, the tabs show "New Tab" and no icon. There appears, however, to be the number of tabs that exist across all Tab Groups but now are ghosts this one, default Tab Group. I'd have to add, though, I don't count the number of tabs, so I can't be exactly sure. When clicked, there is just a blank page. So it is odd that Firefox knows they are there but cannot simply attach the address to it.

I have tried to restore the following files from my Windows Home Server backup to the AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<gobbletygook>.default folder:

1. In the sessionstore-backups folder, I replaced the previous.js, recovery.bak and recovery.js files (not any of the upgrade~) with files from yesterday and from two days before.

When that didn't do anything, I replaced

2. sessionCheckpoints.json

I didn't see any file with a recent date that appeared to be one that I should restore. I should add that I do see hidden files. I thought about restoring the whole lot, but wasn't sure how this would affect the program on v36.0 and the profile files on 35.0.1.

I have deadlines this week and need to immediately restore my environment in order to make those deadlines. I have no list of addresses to my Web pages to work in IE or other. Any help would be very much appreciated.

On a second note, I had been wondering recently whether this tab group environment is a suitable way to maintain my work environment. Occasionally, when opening Panorama, I would get an error saying a script is taking too long, but if I clicked Continue, it would display the groups in a few seconds. I had considered putting all of it in Bookmarks though it would be tedious and more difficult to access and open multiple tabs. In the beginning, I tried Tab Groups thinking it was a simple matter of maintaining a table of addresses (in tabs) with a tab group ID or name. How could that go wrong? Well, it has, so it is obviously more complicated than that, and I didn't realise that upgrades would affect personal data. Should I abondon using tab groups?

Hello, I have something called "freshy" or "tightrope" that causes my firefox to always open to this web page:

http://search.yahoo.com/?ei=utf-8&fr=tightropetb&type=11059_022115

I can change the homepage back to anything I want, and as long as I stay in the same session, it will work. If I close firefox and re-open it, then it returns back to this page. I think it is a redirect virus. I have ran a full boot scan and used Microsoft's scanner and this shows up in none of them. I even uninstalled firefox and re-installed it, and it is still there. I uninstalled a program called "freshy toolbar" that showed up one day. Nothing helps. Please, I want rid of this! Thanks
