I'm able to save and update passwords on other sites, but not on Blackboard Learn for my university. They require us to change our pw's every so often and I think I noticed this after Blackboard had done a few updates to their site. It will still load autofill with my old account and password, but not update it. I deleted the stored password and tried to get FF to remember it again on my laptop, but it didn't even ask to save it. I'm guessing there's a new code or script for the log in procedure? Is there a manual way to enter and update stored credentials?

My Mozilla firefox home page appears to have been cannibalized by this web site:

http://www.searchnu.com/406

Norton security software is installed. That triggers the following alert message on my desktop:

"An attempt to change your default page (Mozilla) has been successfully blocked."

Unfortunately, it appears that message is incorrect because the default page comes up as searchnu and not Mozilla Firefox.

I have also gone into the Mozilla settings, to ensure the default page is Mozilla, again without success.

Any help, advice, and/or assistance on this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks. Tom.

I have no idea what could have happened to my admin password on my new Windows 8,( Gateway NV ) but this is not good! I have MONTHS of research on it that I can't access, & don't know how it could have changed, I'm the only one who had it. I don't even know if that button was touched, I'm just looking at all the possible things that might have affected a password setting, It happened when I had several windows open, mostly to different legal sites, like ILCS & heritage.org, sites I would not think would be compromised. I have Norton installed. Also Malwarebites, both have been effective & will work together. I was starting to set up the Voice program, & was programming the microphone. That's the last thing I was doing. The speakers squelched, then a reverb was echoing ..that still is, & it picks up every tiny sound to echo.my dogs are losing their mind, it's a little freaky for me too. But the more I tried to figure out how to stop it, the more I didn'y know what I was doing, of course. The next thing that happened was every time I click to access ANYTHING, the Admin Password screen pops up, but the password I have on all three of my computers no longer works on that one, & that's the one where all the picutes are I NEED for my research. They are originl & cannot be replaced, I don't even have that camera or anything now. So they aren't saved anywhere else. I DID network the PCs together, so I can access the photos from all of them, for different portions of the work the computer is designated for. But I can't access them on those other PCs either, without Admin PW....What the heck happened??

I downloaded Firefox earlier this year because I was advised it contained an 'add on' which enabled me to watch BBC & ITV iplayer sites where I live in Spain. I forget the name of the 'add on' but it began with X......... It worked very well, I could stream the catchup sites without problems, but today when I logged on the 'add on' was no longer there.

What has happened?

Please can I have the 'add on' back

In the past I have used http://www.google.co.nz as my home page. Once firefox has opened but I want to go to a different site I just edit the start line and change it to whatever I need eg www.fred.co.nz. Now my home page opens to https://www.google.co.nz - when edited it changes to https://www.fred.co.nz which doesn't exist. I could edit out the "s" as well but like everything that is changing on the internet it always seems to require extra keystrokes or mouse clicks and I am getting annoyed with it. Why can't I still have http://www etc as my home page. In other words how do I STOP https: being inserted into my home page as the default ? Quite happy in Options to have the choice to make either available and who knows maybe in the future I might want to change to encrypted (but I doubt it).

I clicked this link from an email - https://www.lmsvc.com/jobs - and got the message "Untrusted connection"
When I went to research the site (searched it using my secure search) and clicked on the link from that page, it went right to the site with no warning.

I don't understand why i got the message only once, from the email link.
