I was on the internet, things going fine, left for a couple minutes, when I came back had a blue screen. Nothing worked but the cursor. Turned computer off/on with power switch, restarted FF but my settings had been changed. Put them back to what I want except for the search bar. It is now beside the address bar not where I want it - below the address bar and all the way across the window. How do I get the search bar under the address bar? I have already looked through all of the Options and Customize, maybe I missed it, so be specific. Thank you, Bernadine

I set the default search engine as Google but it's being redirected to Yahoo. Fix I read states to use: help, troubleshooting information, refresh Firefox (in a pop up window). Pop up window never shows. What's the fix? This is supposedly a virus. Not Yahoo's fault. thanks

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

Firefox opens homepage yahoo.com but another tab opens with FF color and logo stating to download this Firefox Update. https://oophig-tools.com/3571824514203/0a3f0fb3b55733687efd3c163838392c/b65d0c99f71438740adbe2e913464f86.html I have checked the startup page which is only Yahoo.com and I checked addons and plugins which has only the correct plugins listed. I am using Avast with Avast FF addon and Avast states the website is legitimate (LOL). The download file is a JS file and I did not download it. What is funny is the web address I listed does not load if I enter the web address manually. I cannot find anything about this web page.

Hello Everyone, For awhile now little video boxes appear in the lower right hand corner of the page I'm reading. Sometimes it's a video that I may be watching on the main page itself and sometimes it's the video of the next story on the website? I read a lot of articles on MSN and I believe that's where the majority of the problem appears? Has anyone else experience this and if so, how did you fix it? Thanks

Booking a cruise on this site requires several pages of entry items. The site hangs-up with the first pop-up window that says "Relax while we process your request. Please do not refresh this page or use the back button during this operation." Internet Explorer does not have the same issue - works fine. Norton 360 and Firewall have been eliminated as causing the issue.

Is any one else experiencing an inability to log in to wellsfargo.com. I have latest version of firefox and have no new add-ons or changes in security/anti-virus or malware programs.

Their tech support said "sounds like a browser issue" . I switched to ie and logged right in. I use to log in a dozen times a week and have not ever been denied. When I try to log in the screen re-freshens and is blank. No bad log in script or any other prompts, just a waiting log in screen.

Thanks for any thoughts or similar experiences.
