I need to access temorary Intenet files from Firefox like I can using Internet Explorer. When I watch a video online (not streaming), the file is downloaded to my computer and I can usually access this file using IE from Tools < Internet options < Browser history < Settings < View files - to access the folder containing the "Temporary Internet files" and the video. Firefox doesn't appear to have this option.

I would like to do a TOTAL RESET TO DEFAULT of all settings in FF20. I have had nothing but horrible problems with the new built-in PDF viewer, and despite ALL my efforts, all I can do is download the PDF instead of view it in either FF or Adobe. I am tired of fighting, the program did not need a built in PDF viewer, Acrobat was fine. You have really ruined a great product adding in stuff that duplicates other products, especially when yours in inferior to the standard. I just want my program to work right, using Acrobat 9.x as my viewer. It is set for it, buyt it will only Download the file, not open it.

Hi - I need to use Firefox because an online course only works with it. However, I will never use it for anything else unless I can get rid of Ask.com as my default address bar search. I have been through the support files and have tried everything. There is no Ask toolbar. There is no chromewebapp.sqlite file or user.js file (may be wrong on spelling as I'm doing this from memory). I reset keyword.url and changed it to http://www.google.com/search?q=. I reset that other file (something about stone...again, I'm doing this from memory!). I reset Firefox. I completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it.

I believe this is connected to Norton Safe Search. However, the Norton Toolbar is disabled and Safe Search is disabled. I did want to be able to use the Norton Toolbar and never had this problem with it in the past.

Can you help or should I just go back to using Chrome?

In the last day or two I have noticed a pop up saying " Firefox Plug-in HD Video Player is missing: " with an icon to install the plugin.

I searched around the net and found only one sight saying, " this is malware or a phishing program so do not download and just ignore. I am still able to watch movies and what not online but the message is just so damn annoying.

I am using adblock but it is not blocking that message. I am not really sure what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :-)

I had already bought a registered version of IDM cc 7.3.49 before I upgraded my Firefox to 25.0.1. After the upgrade Firefox disabled IDM integration, and so I can not download flash videos or anything using IDM. I neither know if upgrading my IDM will solve the problem or not, nor I am not willing to pay for a new IDM upgrade. Please guide me if there is a way to solve the issue, or a way to restore my Firefox to its previous version or versions listed in my upgrade history.

Best Regards,

Alex

Realplayer download feature (cursor over a youtube video, "download this video" pops up) has recently quit working for me (I've been using it for months). I've searched knowledge bases and forums extensively and tried all the suggestions., such as rolling back from Flash Player 11.5 to 10.3 (no luck), disabling/enabling RealPlayer Download plugin in Firefox (no luck), etc. The one suggestion I'd like to try but can't is going into RealPlayer preferences and enabling/disabling the "Download and Record" function. I can't because all I have in my preferences is "Recording" and the options have nothing to do with downloading. None of the RealNetworks/RealPlayer support sites are helpful at all...

However, the download feature works just fine in Internet Explorer

Despite having spent several hours searching fruitlessly on the internet, I still cannot find a quick and simple fix for removing Yahoo as the default Firefox search engine. I do not want rubbishy Yahoo search results. I want to use Google, and if Mozilla Firefox won't let me remove the Yahoo default and nominate Google, then I will walk away and use a different web browser.

There is no simple way to dump Yahoo as the default searcher on Firefox 25.0.1. There is no 'search engine preference' tab in the Firefox drop-down tab, and Yahoo does not show up in the add-ons or extensions list. Nor can I change settings in about:config in the browser.newtab.url line. It is almost as if Mozilla is making it impossibly hard for users to chose which search engine they want.

If Mozilla want to make users use Yahoo then they should clearly state that this when they install Firefox software. I do not like being manipulated in such a cynical way.

If anyone can show me how to easily change my settings so that Google becomes my default search engine then I will be grateful. Thanks in advance.

Suddenly Yahoo Toolbar appears in my Firefox, I didnt install anything on my computer, firefox did it herself.

When I search how to delete it, not hide or disable with possibility to show up again, I get no doable answers.

Of course I can hide it, but I want it to be out of my machine forever, its my choice.

Many answers say, go to "Add-Ons" or "Extensions" or even "Plug-ins", but there are no Yahoo Toolbars to find.

I found the toolbars in my Firefox Installation folder, try to delete it...and when Firefox starts it makes a new toolbar for Yahoo Instantly.

I tried different versions of firefox, I actually tried everything, thats why Im writing you.
