I downloaded the Ad-Aware Security toolbar about a year ago. Firefox accepted it. It showed. And it functioned, correctly. Then, suddenly, it disappeared. It did not show on my homepage or any page. It disappeared also from the list of extensions.

I uninstalled it and re-loaded it. Firefox accepted it. But again it did not show, though Firefox said it showed. I repeated the process twice more. Still the same problem recurred.

Then I uninstalled Ad-Aware itself and the Ad-Aware toolbar and reloaded a newer version and also loaded the Ad-Aware toolbar again. And again Firefox accepted the toolbar and said it was active, but the toolbar did not show. Where I say Firefox said the toolbar was active or that Firefox said it showed, I mean this: When I right-click on the toolbar area at the top of my home page or any page, I see Ad-Aware toolbar checked, just as I see checked my AVG safe search toolbar. The AVG toolbars actually shows as a working toolbar. The Ad-Aware does not show.

This is the second time I have reported this problem. Firefox did not respond the first time.

When using Firefox, Yahoo often cuts in, usually with a DNS complaint, and won't let me connect. I don't use Yahoo. I continually strip it from the list of possible browser search choices, but it keeps coming back to the list, and makes itself my browser of choice. I keep correcting this, and it keeps coming back. It is causing me to have to use another browser most of the time, though I would prefer not to. Please tell me what I can do to prevent Yahoo from trying to control my computer!!!

My Firefox is 39.0, and my Mac 10.7.5. I believe Flash Player may be involved (maybe not) and that is version 18.0 r0, which is not allowed to act unless I tell it to.

Unlike with Internet Explorer, evey web page that opens has links to what I call 'trash' sites which automatically opens instead of the page you are requesting; you have to delete the page before you work the page you requested. If your lucky that is and you do not accidently hit a hyperlink that takes you somewhere else.

I want to use firefox, however, every time I open a page, any page, I get "Crazy Score" ads. They pop up all over my screen, blocking the web page. I have deleted "crazy score" from my computer but it didn't help. I uninstalled Firefox and the ad went away. I then re-downloaded Firefox and opened a web page and there it was "crazy score" So I uninstalled Firefox again. It doesn't happen with any other search engine or program.

After every update I have to re setup my setting/homepage/how it works & Visual shopper popups I can not remove = me done with Firefox. Most time my add ons do not work with new version. All this + the large memory allocation Firefox needs does not make it worth my time. I was going to use Firefox on my phone & laptop OS, not now!

Starting this afternoon I used a site that I should have been more careful of to download a document. I spent several hours deleating sites that I did not want and then I found that whenever I opened firefox I no longer saw my home page, but instead a strange site that started "http://cdn.loneforce.com/os/eh/sffb-sweeps/...". This site wanted to offer me prizes and things like that. At the time I was using an older version of firefox. I updated to the current version and nothing changed. How do I recover from my stupidity?
