next to the box for the search terms, i have been dizzied by a spinning object, sometimes a teddy bear. i want to avoid that. how do I do that?

now, after I started this process of asking how to stop the object from spinning, i opened a new start page and the object is not spinning.

now a new start page shows it spinning again. it may be a dog.

i hope you can help. this spinning thing is not good for my state of mind. i kind of blame it on radiorage, which I may or may not have been able to completely cleanse my computer of.

thanks

Within the last few days my regular firefox logo appearing on firefox start page changed on my desktop (windows xp), and two laptops (windows 8 & windows 8.1). The logos all changed around the same time. The normal logo (orange fox holding blue globe) is now an orange fox (holding globe) with a crazy out of control tail that wildly circles around the globe a couple of times. No longer cute & compact but instead takes up a lot of space & really bothers me. Firefox was one of the few browsers I allowed to do automatic updates, but I will modify those settings since I have had so much trouble trying to change the logo back. My update history shows update 32.0.3 was installed 9/24/14 & update 32.0.2 installed 10/30/14, which seems odd to me since 32.0.3 would seem to come after 32.0.2. (There is no cartoon character saying "click me" nor are there any snippets, and I do not wish to block the regular brand logo, just want to get rid of this crazy tail logo).

I appreciate your help on this as this crazy tail logo is driving me crazy!  Thank you very much.

I like blocking active pop ups everywhere else, so it is weird and distracting when I am sitting down to a search and trying to think where i want to go or how to ask for it, that FF now has all this cute action going on right where my eyes would like to rest while I focus. See it once, great, it's very nicely done, nice attitude enhancer, but then please get it out of my way, or give me the option to turn it off, please. I have used only FF as my browser since someone turned me on to it, years ago, and I love it in concept and in practice. But I am highly distractible, and this is a potential deal breaker for me. Snags my mind again and again... Please help!

Computer is iMac desktop with OSX 10.6.8. Recently FF's start screen showed a trapezoidal overlay with an amateurish rendering of the FF logo and a "CLICK ME" button. After a minute or so computer would completely freeze, necessitating a hard shutdown. Tried uninstalling then reinstalling FF to no avail - still the weird overlaid image, still the "CLICK ME" button, still the freezing of the entire system. FF's staying uninstalled until I can get an answer re what's going on...I'm certainly not going to click the "CLICK ME" button!

I was at least able to clear the new flashing message about simplifying buttons by clicking back to home or refreshing the page to get the stationary fox wrapped around the world back, now it will not do it. I have a medical condition that sometimes is aggravated when there is a flashing screen. Please help... Thank-you & have a nice day!  :)

I want to eliminate the animation that is on my Mozilla Firefox home page. It has been there since the latest update ( I do like the changes). I thought that once I opened it up and browsed through the new features it would go away and I would have my regular start page. I do not mind whats below the search box, I just dislike the animation above it. Thanks

When I first saw the bouncing star, it was interesting. From then on it has become increasingly irritating. Now I am leaving Firefox, after a decade of loyal use, replacing Google as my primary browser.

Create a "disable" feature for that obnoxious star and I'll return.

Whenever I start up Firefox, I'm taken to the Mozilla Firefox Start Page.

By default, the page shows the Firefox logo, a search bar, and the footer with the Downloads button, Bookmarks button, Restore Previous session button, etc. However, the Firefox logo will occasionally change to a "promotion" of sorts, for things like FoxYeah or most recently some video, and a line of text talking about the promotion appears underneath the search bar.

Is there a way to disable these promotions?

Thank you in advance to any kind responders.

I am not a web programmer and simply wish that the video that Firefox has overlaid in place of their usual logo on my browser homepage would go away. It appears every time I access the webpage, replacing the simple logo. I do not wish to keep seeing the image in place of the logo. Is there a way I can safely remove the video poster image overlay of two women from my homepage or have Firefox remove it? I haven't watched the video and don't intend to watch it, so there is no point to it being there. I'd like to keep my browser interface very simple and clean. My computer is an older Dell PC running Windows 7 Professional, I believe at 32 bits.

Thanks!
