I have an issue with one of my Firefox extensions/plugins, it's called MyStart: Incredibar, and I basically installed unintentionally when I installed a program with a Brothersoft downloader/launcher. I tried uninstalling Mystart and I tried permanently stopping the service that updates the MyStart incredibar plugin. What it basically does is, when I open a new tab in Firefox, it opens some sort of website, I don't have a problem with it loading a search engine, the only problem I have regarding the search engine is that every time I open a new tab, it actually loads a new page. I even tried resetting the certain figures in about:config which helped temporarily, but after I restart Firefox then it still runs the search engine when I open a new tab. I use Eset Nod32 and Anti-Malmwarebytes as my system's defense, and I've tried scanning with both of them but they don't help at all, does anyone have information that will permanently remove this plugin from my PC?

Screenshot of this problem can be found HERE

My About:Config settings looks like THIS

I installed the jdk 1.6u7, and then I open firefox, I see there is a java console 6.0.07 in extension, but in plugins, there is no java. and I can't open java website, it shows I don't install java in my machine, but actually, I have installed jdk 1.6u7. I think only if the java exists in plugins, the website can get the jvm and run.

it seems it is ok if I install a jdk which will create a plugin in plugins, and the extension can't be used.

Since about a week ago firefox in my laptop cannot play videos from youtube (only from youtube, videos from other sites and flash games work fine), both on the site or embedded on other site. It just shows "an error occured. Please try again later" I'm using firefox 13.0.1 and the latest flash plugin. My laptop is i5 with win7 64 bit and it's clean, no virus or malware.

I've tried all the solution posted here but nothing works. I've tried uninstall-reinstall both firefox and flash, disabled add-ons, safe mode, downgrade to earlier flash, uninstall realplayer, changed dns, reconfigured my modem, called my good-for-nothing ISP (perhaps connection related?), still cannot play videos from youtube.

I've tried using different computer, I used my old winxp pc with older version of firefox (with same configuration as the firefox I'm using in my laptop) and my ipad, they can play videos but the playback is stuttering which never happened before. Strangely enough, I tried chrome (on the same laptop) and it works well, no stutters. Does this problem has something to do with firefox updates, flash updates, both, or something else?

Please help me, I don't want to go back and forth between browsers just to see video in youtube and I really don't want to change browser. Thanks!

This problem has been ongoing, on every computer I own (6 total) and all have different settings and such - so no, this is not my issue.

From this unanswered link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/767320

You can see that the problem has been around for OVER A YEAR and still not address by Firefox.

The problem is as the title says, EVERY link I click will bring up a Server not found error message and I must click "Try again" repeatedly to get the page to load.

It becomes really annoying after typing a long response and clicking the Send button only to have to re-type everything because of "Server Not Found" BS. I will try to bump this post daily until action is taken. I must learn to copy everything I type in case the page does not load.

Can anyone point me to the firefox version 28 exe file fore windows?

I can find this link " https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ " but it lists a number for version 28s (28.0, .0b1/2/3.../9) and the sub-directories there are a mess of stuff that I have no idea where to go and what to get.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I updated to 29 and the GUI change is too much for me, so I installed a really old version of ff and am looking to update back to 28 until I feel like I want to adjust to 29.

This started happening for no reason that I can find. Every few minutes a pop-up window appears that says: Browser startup change

    An unknown change was detected on your browser's search settings

(button) Keep my current settings (button) I am aware of the change and approve it

                                                 (button)YES

None of the buttons do anything. The close button doesn't work. The window sits on top.

I've been plagued with unwanted programs trying to change my browser setting and adding toolbars I don't want.. I've been able to delete / disable these manually.

The window doesn't show up with all extensions turned off. I can only turn it off by selecting it on the task bar and closing it there. I've been turning extensions on or off but it only goes away with all extensions off.

I've done some research. I know about (about:config) and (about:cache). Maybe the weirdest thing is that (about:cache) shows nothing about where the temporary files cache is located. List Cache Entries shows all of the temporary files, but still no clue about where those files are located? [since "List Cache Entries" is under "Memory cache device", that's not helpful.]

my cache settings

I'm trying to move the temporary files cache to drive F. Finding their current location might help.

Please advise. Thanks.
