The update just disabled my lavasoft/grisoft registery tuner & malware protection search plug & my AVG toolbar that scans all web pages for viruses before it lets me on them. Sorry it was only 2 security programs, the other was the ebates tab where I could automatically log in through ebates to do my shopping on their accepted sites

How do I unblock an Add-On that Firefox has blocked?

I need to unblock a Java add on that Firefox has blocked but there is no 'Enable' setting or option for me to choose whether to block or unblock it. Java is used by my company and blocking it is not an option.

Honestly I'm not that happy with Mozilla/Firefox about this in general, It's MY computer I get to decide what I run and don't run. Firefox not having the option for me to say 'Okay, you don't like it but I do so we're going to do it' is a major failure.

Why does Firefox make a sound (like a short organ chord) every time there is some activity? This is very annoying.

When Firefox is open (we have 4 browsers to choose from), a sound like someone hitting a chord on an organ comes out whenever a page updates or a button is selected on a … (read more)

When Firefox is open (we have 4 browsers to choose from), a sound like someone hitting a chord on an organ comes out whenever a page updates or a button is selected on a site. I find NOTHING about sounds in the settings for Firefox. This noise does not happen when Firefox is off and another browser is open. It does sound when Firefox is the only browser open, as well as when we are using multiple browsers, so it's not a competition attention getter.

So what is it? How can it be stopped without muting all sounds?

Just today the 'Home' button has changed. It is now a tiny little house icon tucked away at side of screen and difficult to click easily, whereas before it was a larger button with HOME written on it.

How do I get this back as the buttons are too close together and too small now.

The add-ons "Safe Money," "Virtual Keyboard," which are both by kaspersky will not stay disabled in firefox. I go to my add-ons to disable them and then restart firefox to have the disable take effect only to find out that they re-enabled themselves. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

FF refuses to open at homepage (google) but opens last session, turned off history - lost all logins and passwpasswords - Not Happy

I am trying to get firefox to simply open at my home page (google.com.au) It used to always do this then suddenly, with out me touching any settings, it has suddenly decided that every time I open FireFox, it was going to restore previous sessions.

I have been into the Windows Control Panel options, It i has home page set as google.

I have been into Firefox options, same thing, google is set as home page.

I went online to the Mozilla Help section, read all the FAQ's, went to the forums and read all the questions about it and the answers. Mozilla said 'delete the 'user.js' file, Even logged in as an administrator, with show all system and hidden files selected, and using the Windows TaskBar 'Find Files and Folders' option, even to the point of manually looking in every sub-folder in the Mozilla directory, there is NO user.js file I can find anywhere.

So, I returned to the Mozilla help section, it says 'turn off browser history'. I did not want to loose the history (ctrl H) but I am fed up with the restore sessions so much, I decided, I could live with cutting and pasting the sites I visited from the address bar to a text file, even if it was a nuisance. It gave no warnings about any loss of information in the system that would result, So I trusted Mozilla's advice would be safe to do so and turned it off.

Now all my many and various log in's and passwords are gone, nothing has been remembered and apart from the huge amount of trouble that is going to create for me, attempting to contact dozens and dozens of websites and recovering new passwords, then changing them back to my passwords, we are talking possibly weeks lost, not to mention the time and effort to do so.

AND, guess what? Firefox STILL opens at last session so all Mozilla has managed to do is create a vastly huge work load for me and blown my frustration and stress levels to an all-time high.

I am trying to stay pleasant and remain calm, but seriously.... I AM NOT HAPPY>

Surely the developers can put a simple 'On/OFF' 'open previous sessions' button in the options menu or at least a warning what will result if you do.
