Name your price to play eight awesome indie games right in your Firefox browser. Get the Humble Mozilla Bundle, and play on! My start page has changed. I did a screen shot to show you but haven't figured out to send it, or post it on here.

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

Since this new feature "click me" appeared on my Firefox start page, it has slowed my computer to a crawl. I had instantaneous response when searching the web for anything prior to this thing. Now I have to sit and wait upwards of 30 seconds for each action to engage and appear . . . there are enough ongoing computer problems without this nonsense . . . blank windows popping up etc. . . . as it is, I always start Firefox in Safe Mode to avoid all the annoying popups . . . now this new whatever, prevents me from successfully starting up in Safe Mode. How do you get rid of this?

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.

When browser opens a large square box with a shaded fox appears and a small image at the left says "Click me" as it keeps flashing. The screen itself keeps flickering and when I try the help section it too keeps jumping. I scanned for malware but this did not make a difference. I deleted then replaced Firefox but got the same results.

I'm a new Firefox user. I liked it until the game appeared on the home page. I understand Mozilla will eventually remove the game. In the meantime, I feel visually disturbed.

Please tell me how to remove this.

Apparently it will happen again.

I don't want to use a browser which uses animations on the home page.

I loved the user control of iGoogle. I quit Google due to animations during the International Soccer tournament. Firefox is cleaner and easier to read than Google Chrome.

Please tell me if I need to give up and return to Safari.

thank you, lilyplants
