I installed something and it changed my home page to bing AND whenever I click the button to open a new tab it goes to a site http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3281675&octid=CT3281675&SearchSource=15&CU Instead of the normal options for new tabs, like recent pages visited. I uninstalled the stupid entrusted add-on and I reset my home page to what I wanted, but I can't get rid of the new tab opening option to that site instead of the default. Can someone please help me fix it.

Whenever I click a link, it opens in a new tab. This just started almost a week ago, but I didn't change any settings or click anything--it just started doing it by itself. It is extremely irritating, because it just increases the number of tabs I have.

HI, I've been struggling the last few days to get back all the opened tabs I had in my Firefox window. My deault setting was to resume the Firefox session from where it was when I last exited Firefox. But some weird toolbar got somehow installed in my PC and when I uninstalled it all my browsing history was deleted (from all my browsers, IE, FF and chrome) and my precious Firefox tabs were gone.

These tabs are really priceless, I collected them through some months of research and it would be impossible to redo all my work. Although I managed to find some of these sites in my browing history when I restored all of it via the "restore" function in places.sqlite file properties (in the "previous versions" tab), it's impossible to find the other sites I need by checking every visited site in my browsing history, there are thousands of them and it would be the same as starting all over from scratch.

I know too that it was unbelievably stupid of me to not bookmark these sites before, but please, isn't there any way of retrieving those lost tabs? What irks me the most is the fact that the tabs weren't loaded when I opened Firefox, but only when I clicked on them, which means that I have no clue on which dates to find the tabs, since they were only visited at the time I found them, and never loaded again.

I'd be most grateful to any hint that might solve this problem. Thank you for your attention.

PS: I should mention I've already tried Window's "System Restore" but to no avail; when I open Firefox, after having a previous session restored, it will display the same tabs I left recently (as opposed to my previous tabs, that remain lost). My OS is a win7 64 bit Ultimate

I have Windows XP. I keep a lot of tabs open in Firefox on a regular basis for easy access. I have it set so that they automatically reopen when I reopen Firefox. Tonight I didn't realize that when I clicked a link in an Amazon email, it actually opened a new Firefox window and that that window stayed open when I closed my other tabs. Firefox now thinks that one Amazon window is the tab to be recovered. It shows nothing in recently closed tabs either! I tried opening Firefox about 3 times before I realized what was going on; now I am panicked and don't know what to do for recovery. i am over in internet explorer right now typing this because I don't want to disturb things anymore. what can I do. Thank you.

I update BitTorrent to the latest version today and after that my search bar on the top right changed from Google to "Conduit Search" That was easily fixed with two clicks but for some reason it also changed what happens when I open a new tab from the default new tab page with the pinned book marks to this: http://i.imgur.com/dmU463W.png

I looked up some stuff to help and found the information on "about:config" to change the "browser.newtab.url" value to "about:newtab" however when I attempt to do that I get the window that is supposed to come up prompting me to input the new value, I put in the value and nothing changes, it remains with this Conduit Search stuff. Closing Firefox afterwards does not fix the problem and I have tried the process several times to make sure it was not just a one time bug. It also does not work for any value as leaving it blank or changing it to "about:blank" did not solve the issue.

It seems like every time I click a link in a search page, whatever the provider, it opens a new tab. I've gone into "about:config" changed the browser.search.tab to "true" without any change. What is with this? The earlier versions of FF allowed me to click a link in Google or where ever and it opened in the same tab. I need help with this issue. Is there a bug no one knows about? I've followed all suggestions on the forums and nothing seems to change. I did find however that "Youtube" links do open in the same tab. Strange!

Please help, getting overloaded with too many tabs.

I have been using Firefox with no problems for over a year. Now, yesterday, for the first time, when I turned my computer on and started Firefox, it did not save my multiple tabs! I lost them all! So, after rebuilding and starting all over (including my 3 pinned tabs), I shut down my computer.

This morning, again, same thing. The 11 tabs I had opened did not re-open (just one main tab) and my 3 pinned tabs are again - GONE!

Why is this happening all of a sudden? This is very discouraging. Please provide step-by-step instructions on how to make sure this does not keep happening. I want to save multiple tabs (and pinned tabs) and have them all open whenever I go online please!

Thanks, Cass

Got hijacked by Delta Search. Successfully removed all Delta extensions, add-ons, deleted user.js file that Delta created, and probably a couple other things done, too. Still left with the about:config not saving the reset to default (about:newtab) that I make to browser.newtab.url. Works fine while Firefox is still open, but reverts back to "userset" and then empty value when Firefox is restarted. It originally had Delta settings there, so I don't get why it got rid of Delta in the value for browser.newtab.url but won't permanently save back to the default so that I can have the quick tabs on each new page.

Whenever I click a link in firefox, whether I option-click it or right-click it and choose "Open in new Tab." Firefox lately always opens a new window, not a tab. For the life of me, I cannot get it to open a page in a new tab.

There was a time when I had one window open, and every time I would choose to create a new tab, it would create it in that window instead of the window I was currently in, but I have since closed that window, and now I cannot get a link to open in a new tab no matter what I do.

I have tried both selecting and deselecting "Open new windows in a new tab instead" In Firefox preferences, restarting Firefox in "Safe" mode, etc. to no avail.

How do I fix this?

I've seen several threads that describe the same issue - the cursor appears in the address bar by default on a new tab. I have not seen a single solution. Mozilla needs to sort this out because it's very annoying.

This started happening only after I updated to FF 17. Until that point the cursor was in the google search box. It was just a FF update, no new extensions or add-ons. The only workaround I have is the Custom New Tab extension.

I just don't want to have to install new extensions to add functionality every time they update to a new version that creates new issues. FF already lacks some basic tab management functionality which forces me to use extensions s.a Tab Utilities. It's been 17 versions already and FF still doesn't let me set up new tabs from Bookmarks, Address bar, etc, or multi-row tabs / bookmarks, new tab position / focus, right-click menu options, etc etc etc. Just don't make it worse guys.
