Hi, Somehow, Babylon toolbar and search provider got installed. And now I want to get rid of it. So, 1) I uninstalled it from "add or remove programs" in the control panel 2) cleared out the "add-ons" from all the browsers and even 3) searched the registry for "Babylon" and deleted all the traces of it 4) searched C: drive for the keyword "Babylon" and deleted all the folders

But still to my surprise, the search results of about:home in Firefox 11.0 came out of "Babylon"

For the past month, maybe longer, Firefox has been extremely slow. The videos are also delayed. I have used firefox for many years and now I am disappointed with this browser. I cleared the cache and cookies, twice within a week. No improvement. I've been using Safari for my videos, but all my bookmarks are on firefox. How can we fix this problem? Whats going on ??

I checked my plug-in and was told the Google Earth Plugin was outdated. I clicked on the "Update" option but nothing happened. Usually when I clicked on that option, it'll open the developer's website so I can proceed the update. But this one just sat there and nothing happened. So how could I update this plug-in?

Thank you.

Several times over the last couple weeks, I type up a very well thought out response on Facebook in political conversations with friends. An hour or two into my work, I hit backspace with the intent of editing what I wrote (maybe after I scrolled or something, so maybe I unintentionally took the edit window out of focus). The navigator takes me back a page and I lose my two hours of work. Infuriating! Shortcuts with the ability to wipe out two hours of works should be disable-able. Not only that, I feel that is an unsafe shortcut for this very reason, and would have added a SHIFT modifier key or something like that. I think I invented a cool word: disable-able.

Receiving browser setting change error message about every ten minutes.

"An unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings" There are two options to check. 1- Keep your current settings. 2-I am aware of the changes & approve it.

I can select either option and then click on the yes button, but the system does not respond. It will not let me close the window by clicking on the X in the right-hand corner. The only way to delete it is to close the window on the task bar

Hi FireFox support, We are developing a web application with javascript, we use firefox as our default browser for our users.

Now we met a problem when we use window.open in our application.

In our application, we need to open new page in a new browser tab, we used code : window.open('http://ourUrl.com', '_blank');

The action of the browser is different according when this line of code is executed.

situation1: user clicked a button, the click event will trigger our js function, in this function, execute this line of code directly, then the browser may open the page in a new browser tab. (this is what we wanted.)

situation2: user clicked a button, we firstly submit the data on page to our server, and in the callback function, we execute this line of code, it may pop an independent new window without tool bar.(this is not what we wanted).

I don't understand why the action of browser is different, can you help to explain? Thanks.

For example, On a particular software, only the version 7 of firefox is marked as "certified" and I need this specific version for support reason.

I've found this website : http://www.oldapps.com/firefox.php but I would prefer downloading the file from mozilla servers for legal reason, and the only version available is 3.6.28 here :

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

(I've tryed to change the version in the download url without luck ;))

Any idea where I can get older version from mozilla servers? Thanks.

When I play flash games on facebook, I notice after a few minutes that my computer seems to get slow and continues to be. When I looked at the Task Manager, plugin-container.exe is using up to 1.2gb of my memory. For example, the moment I no longer have Castleville running, it drops to about 40mb, which is alot more acceptable.

Before in version 10 of Firefox I could disable the plugin-container but now the option seems to disappear in version 11. Please help, I wish to disable it so my computer can run normally. It's crazy that I can't just have only one tab open, to play Castleville for 5 minutes before it gets a little bogged down.

I've tried the suggestions for [[High memory usage|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/High%20memory%20usage]] , but it hasn't helped or already done that before reading. My Flash is up to date (11.2.202.233), Firefox is 11.0.

Any help would be appreciated to disable/ limit the plugin-container.
