I've uninstalled the program. I've deleted all registry entries. I've deleted babylon from the top right search engine.

I've gone into about:config and reset every line with babylon. I've also tried replacing babylon with google and then resetting the babylon entries.

But the babylon entries still appear when I close firefox and reopen about:config.

I'm stuck with Babylon as a homepage. I used REVO to remove the toolbar but something in the process must have gone wrong because the homepage keeps coming back. I cleaned the About:config as stated in earlier posts (mstone, homepage and new tab) and when I restart Firefox the first tab is firefox and the second babylon. When I close and startup firefox again then the first tab is babylon and I'm back to square one. The removal of the browser manager seemd too technical to me and I didn't dare to do it. Any suggestions?

I purchased a new computer about a month ago, and I've noticed pretty consistently when I try to reload the current page, I have to hit the reload button numerous times for the page to reload. Eventually the page does reload, but in the past with my old computer this was never a problem, just hit the reload button and the page very quickly was reloaded. Any reason as to why this is happening now with firefox 15, the version I'm now using with my new computer? Thank you.

when trying to load the content created by the url below, firefox uses a lot of memory and becomes unresponsive, so that I have to close (and kill) it.

The same happens if I save the content to a file with another browser (i.e. opera) and just try to open this file.

I've tried other machines. It works under windows but not under my SuSE and Ubuntu (precise) Linux. I've tried without plugins and with hardware acceleration disabled and with firefox being reset.

Smaller graphs like http://pollux.informatik.uni-bremen.de:8000/Basic/Numbers.casl are no problem.

Not only have I lost ALL bookmarks from last 5 days, Something has happened where ALL of the old bookmarks-and ones that I have added today are ALL missing icons.

The old ones were in a json file that was a backup. When put back on FF-no more icons! I tried making an HTML version of the JSON file but it has a MOZILLA icon on it and it doesn't work when I try to use it.

All they have is a white square with dotted lines around.

ALL NEW bookmarks have NO icons...I don't understand.

I have WIN XP and have Firefox 15.

I am NO techie so any solution PLEASE be simple and step-by-step.

PLEASE-is there ANY way to fix this???

Some web sites such as www.chron.com and www.pddnet.com create a new directory on the hard drive and write to it. This is absolutely unacceptable. After each internet session I delete them. It seems the Firefox developers would be concerned enough about security not to have allowed this "feature" or at least make the site ask permission to create the directory. Web sites should not have arbitrary write access. (Debian Linux 6.0).

Cannot put item in Cart on Amazon site

In Firefox (15), Safari, but not Opera I cannot put an item in the shopping cart on the Amazon website. This problem occurs ONLY when buying an item in Clothing and Accessories, where it is necessary to specify a size. If I search and select such an item, like a pair of trousers, the section where the item is put into the cart is dimmed, and there is an instruction to select a size. I select a size and then move the cursor to the point where I can Add to Cart. But this section remains dim instead of turning bright. I cannot add the item to the cart. EXCEPT if I order a belt! A belt has a size, you must specify it, and you can put it in the cart. I DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM UNTIL ABOUT A WEEK AGO, after downloading a Software Update that contained an HP printer driver. That issue got fixed by an HP tech working remotely. I have talked to Apple several times, they cannot figure out what is wrong with the Amazon site. I do NOT have this problem on a MacBookPro running 10.6.8. I only have it on a MacPro desktop machine also running 10.6.8. I reinstalled 10.6.3 on the desktop Mac from the Snow Leopard DVD and updated that to 10.6.8 (not including the HP driver on the chance that that might have triggered all of this. The inability to move "sized" items to the cart still persists, as described. Note again, I have the same problem in Safari, but no problem in Opera. I am allowing cookies and third party cookies. I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled. I have deleted Amazon's cookies and then allowed Amazon to re-install them. There is no firewall up. The desktop machine is around 6-8 years old. There are no apparent hardware problems although I only have 1GB of RAM. Could this be a firmware problem? Of course I have the workaround of using Opera or the laptop if I want to buy some socks, but it's annoying to have this inconsistency. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Gene

In FF14 I could 1) Open new tab and see the new tab page with 9 page thumbnails. 2) Click one thumbnail and go to that page. 3) Click the FF back button, which took me back to the new tab page so I could click some other thumbnail.

In FF15 that doesn't seem to work. In step 3 above, the back button isn't active/enabled and thus, I can't easily go back to the new page tab. How do I get back in an easy way?

Recently upgraded from Firefox 3.x to 15 (I know, but 4+ is terrible IMO). Anyway - I want to remove the favicons next to bookmarks in the bookmarks tab AND the toolbar and it doesn't seem to be possible. Currently they are all showing an empty dotted box instead of the icons themselves. It seems doing this fix for old versions (http://www.ghacks.net/2009/05/11/how-to-remove-favicons-in-firefox-bookmarks/) will remove the icon, and stop new ones from being added but will NOT remove this annoying box.

http://i45.tinypic.com/6sck08.jpg http://i47.tinypic.com/30lm1ow.jpg

I looked into the .css fix but my .css files are completely blank for some reason. How can I remove all of these boxes completely without an addon?
