downloaded latest update now find I cannot use google as search engine, tried to reset in options but will not accept. keeps shunting into yahoo. Understand that there is some form of agreement to embed yahoo in firefox? I really do not want yahoo prefer google as search engine. so what are you doing to put right this, frankly have always liked very much firefox as browser, but do not like being "dictated to" (assuming that is what is occurring.) I am running windows 10 advice please

When first logging on to a site, I'm prompted for the master password. That's fine. But when I want to log in to an already remembered site, I want to be able to enter the master password only once in a given time period, say 12 hours. Then I won't have to enter the master password for every remembered site I open. I previously used Roboform and it had this feature, which was nice. Or it could be 12 hours or when I leave Firefox, whichever is first.

This has happen to me, I have a verified clean website but google disagrees. This has also happen to a ever growing number of clean websites, surely it's time to stop using google's blacklist as a guide, instead use a list provided by professional's in this field, i.e. most anti-virus companies, google can not be trusted, just look at google's chrome, a definite badware/malware and key logger, where one's personal info is given to google then handed over to the NSA and CIA.

Adobe Flash keeps causing Firefox to freeze

It will work for a short while but eventually causes firefox to completely freeze until I end the "plugin-container.exe" process in the task manager (which causes it to stop working obviously). I have uninstalled and reinstalled, I have attempted the deactivate hardware acceleration option, the option under plugins that firefox also suggested isn't even an option anymore (maybe it was for an older version of flash?) but either way this is getting old since practically every website uses flash either for ads or actual desired video and I'd like to be able to browse the web. Any help would be much appreciated!

Windows 7 Adobe Flash 18.0 r0 Firefox v41.0 Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0

Firefox has been my prefered browser for many years and has worked well for me. I do watch a lot ofvideos - YouTube, Yahoo news, etc. Until a few days ago, everything was fine. For some reason, many videos (not all) started appearing choppy...skipping. The audio was fine and unaffected, but the video feed was not smooth. I tried trouble-shooting this on FireFox today. One of the suggestions was to add the YouTube player for FireFox. I did that and it appears to have helped with YouTube. But other videos (Yahoo, Advertisements, etc.) are still appearing choppy.

Help? Thanks!

I have firefox set to re-show my tabs from last time when I restart it. However, when I close and restart, the first tab is always empty. If I choose 'view source', the file is empty. Refreshing or shift-refreshing the tab does not cause it to load. I can copy the url and paste it into a new tab and that will load fine.

This wouldn't be too annoying, except it also happens with about:sessionrestore, and when I open it in a new tab, it doesn't show any tabs to restore.

Firefox was running fine before it automatically updated today. Now it is almost unusable! pop up ads galore (I have ticked block pop ups in options) ... various ad things (previous 1 of 13 next) will not go away - covering about 1/4 of the lower right side of my screen. When I click off the various popups ... firefox stops responding. Very frustrating. I'm almost 80 ... not a computer whiz by any stretch of the imagination - don't understand a lot of computerize either ... so I find it hard to use info on various forums ' cause I don't know what it means ... could be French, German, Swiss, Russian, Italian, Greek or even a mix of them all, and I would understand just about as much. Do not want to use IE ... but need a browser and now firefox not working. I have not downloaded anything for more than a week - firefox was running fine last evening ... now today ... not responding ... restart ... not responding as soon as I leave my home page and reuse to take part in the popup requests.

since V 41 very often the standard firefox start window is replaced by a crude yahoo one. I can reset it by ordering "stadard window", this is not kept always!?

If resetted manually to 'standard' Start Window, but this option is not securely kept. After a few starts the goofy yahoo starting screen is coming again. In 'about:config' several new yahoo entries are then built - removing them is no help... Also all my Adware cleaners did not help. I'm convinced that it's not Mozilla-fault. So Somebody is sneaking in since V41 (!?) Since i want to decide freely which search enginge i want to use in a session, there is no use of a specified yahoo page for me without any coice.

how can I get rid of the yahoo StartWindow?

PS

Same thing happens at my several Win 7 64 installations, and also at my Win 8.1.
