Initially, I did not request ask.com to become the default search engine and I did not ignore the box making the request. I have made the following efforts to return to google as default: Uninstalled ask.com and its automatic update, disabled all add-ons (including those that did not apply), checked extensions anything that pertained to ask.com (nothing was there), re-downloaded the latest version of Firefox, searched about:config for ask.com and reset it to default (google). On the Start Page the ask.com logo is still in the URL and a test search in the box under the logo yields ask.com results rather than google. Any additional recommendations would be helpful. At this point, I am considering the following: (1) restoring my computer to an earlier date; (2) reseting or removing firefox and reinstalling it; and (3) removing AVIRA.

This problem started earlier this week and occurs on websites I have used and trusted for years, including Weather.com. I am only experiencing this problem on my laptop. The Mozilla browser on my desktop does not give me this error message. I have browsed your help page and tried the listed solutions of checking the date and time of my computer, which is correct, as well as deleting the cert8db. file. Nothing has corrected this. What else can be causing this problem? It cannot be the websites otherwise I would be getting this message on my other computer. I am using Windows XP.

I'm running Windows 7-64 bit. Over the last 30 days or so, every time I check my plugins, I get the message that Shockwave Flash is vulnerable and that I need to update now to 11.4 r402.

I have downloaded and installed at least a dozen times. I close Firefox to install, and when I restart and/or reboot, I still get the message that Flash is vulnerable. GETTING OLD!

I've followed all the troubleshooting suggestions - I've completely uninstalled Flash and done the full re-install - same non-results.

Flash crashes repeatedly daily - obviously it has a problem, but I can't figure out how to fix it. I really don't want to switch to IE (UGH!)

Since the most recent Firefox-Update I am permanently kidnapped by the a "smartsuggestor" function, which takes me - without asking - EVERY TIME WHEN I CLICK A LINK IN ANY WEBSITE away from my target to SPONSORED LINKS, - and this happens even while I am password protected customer websites.This is more than annoying, but .... it doesn't happen when I'm using Opera. But I would love to stay with FIREFOX. Therefore I deactivated selectively (=set after set of) - finally - all of my addons. The same I did with my "Erweiterungen" (in English it probably is called "extensions" ) of Firefox. Nothing helped, nothing is protecting me from being taken away from the target of my "click". PLEASE help me out of this horrible problem. My German Firefox version is 15.0.1. - the XP-edition is most up-to-date.

I am on Firefox 15.0. I would prefer not to open multiple tabs to get multiple web sites up when Firefox is started. Instead, I prefer multiple windows. Some might have one tab, some might have several. For example, one window might have Gmail, another might have several different web pages related to weather, and another might simply have Google, and another Yahoo, and another, Orbitz. Since there may be five or six of these windows, with multiple web pages, perhaps 20 in toal, tabs get cluttered, and I don't prefer them anyway. I have plenty of memory and processing power.

Interestingly enough, if Firefox crashes, it allows you to restart with the pages it thinks you would want. It would be great to have a Start Firefox option similar to that!
