when i search something from google search (in a webpage) it goes to the yahoo search website and show the results!

1.) there is no extension on add-ons, anything to do with search or yahoo 2.) i have tried reset the keyword.url from configuration 3.) i also tried to remove yahoo search engine from searchbar (didn't help)

This article didn't help either (same as above though): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-toolbar-has-taken-over-your-firefox-search?esab=a&as=aaq

And i have avast and malware-program and those doesn't find anything.

No help. Everytime i search something in google, it goes to the yahoo search webpage! how to get rid of this yahoo rubbish?

I have no idea how it came. Maybe something to do with vlc codec pack? "Myfreecodec" that i tried to use when trying to play some mp4-file... i think i haven't installed anything else lately... And i always uncheck the "add this one on your browser..."

Two days ago I started getting the "server not found" error, off and on, daily. It is happening on both my desktop iMac 10.7, and my Windows 7 laptop. I keep having to hit the "Try Again" butting, and sometimes, several times, before a web site will finally launch. The only two extensions I have on both, are the Adblock Plus and the Last Tab Close Button, both of which, have been installed on said computers for months and months and months.

I went in and changed a setting to the "auto detect proxy setting", hoping that would work, and it did not.

I have Firefox version 21 on both computers, and it seems the problem started shortly after this latest Firefox update, and at the SAME TIME on both computers.

I do not have virus protection on my iMac, nor on my Windows 7 laptop, at the moment, but I have run online software to check for anything, and no issues, so I believe, it is not that which is the issue.

The firewalls on both computers are working fine and no issues there either, I have not changed any firewall settings, on either computer. It couldn't be the firewall, in my opinion, because this annoying error message started happening on BOTH of my computers, at the same time; I work on my iMac in the morning, then switch to my laptop in the afternoon, and same issue continues on both, and started at the same time, on both.

Is there something broken in Firefox from this last update of the browser?

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why both computers are having this issue, at the same time?

I have not tried using I.E. yet on my laptop, I rarely have ever needed to use that browser, and I hate it, so I don't use it.

Any help or suggestions, would be appreciated.

I have seen a lot of answers here that don't appear to understand the real problem. The key here at one time I chose to DISABLE the reminder on the pop up. The "Do you want Firefox to remember this password" box doesn't pop up anymore.

All history has been cleared, all sites and passwords have been cleared. Under "Security" tab "remember passwords for sites box" is checked and under "Privacy" tab "Always use private browsing mode" is disabled.

The last time this happened, I uninstalled/re-installed Firefox. Is that the only solution?

I've tried avast, spyhunter etc ... to remove ueep.com but when I restart my PC it returns as 4 entries in about:config.

browser.newtab.url; browser.startup.homepage; keyword.URL; search.ueep.com;


It hjijacks the address line search and the default search in the top right. Firefox no longer starts automatically from STARTUP, although it is the only entry in STARTUP.

Any suggestions?

And there is also another problem when browsing using Firefox have noticed that we get the crash & Warning Unresponsive script all the time? Causing freeze & hang of Firefox browser & system

I had a problem with a website and the stupid support person had me restore Firefox to its default settings. Stupider me, I did it without realizing what would happen. In the process I got a file called "Old Firefox Data." Is there a way I can use that to restore all my old add-ons, etc., so that Firefox looks like and works the way I am used to?

Any way to ENABLE hardware acceleration AND fix Firefox display issues?

I must have hardware acceleration (specifically the Direct3D acceleration) enabled for a CAD program I'm running but, when enabled, Firefox 20.1 has display problems. Green rectangles appear in column patterns and, occasionally, there will be horizontal lines of "dots" that distort the screen display.

- Installing the latest drivers (6.14.13.783) for my graphics card (nvidia GeForce 7300 LE) did not fix the problem - Disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox does not fix the problem - Resetting Firefox does not solve the problem.

Is Firefox aware of any issues as described? Is this a previously reported issue and, if so, is there a fix? or an update coming to fix it?

Are there any other suggestions or setting changes I can try?

For my current project, I absolutely need hardware acceleration enabled AND for Firefox to display properly.

(pre) Thanks for info and/or assistance.

I got a request to update Firefox to FireFox-22. The version I have now (FF21) is starting to cause me many problems, namely it is getting slow and not able to correctly show the images in places like facebook. I updated my java, but I am trying to update my system to 64-bit; for which this system was created. I know that 32 bit runs good on a 64, I just would love to put a stop to all the updating. I just installed firefox 21 and now there is a new version. It is so frustrating that I am going to get a MAC, it is a hassle to keep updating things when your an Artist and have deadlines to meet. When are you going to release a 64-bit version or do I have to use Internet explorer until then? I really don't want to use the 32-bit version of FF22 when I know there is going to be a new release within 6 months.

I've had this weired problem with Firefox. While i was browsing an error message come up saying cannot connect to the website... check proxy settings. In other tabs there were some chinese sentence saying basically the same thing. Other browsers worked fine. So i did a research and found this forum: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/715401#answer-121372 which suggested to set the proxy settings to no proxy. I did that and worked but when i closed and restarted firefox again the problem was still persisted. So i tried again but this time at the proxyx settings tab by clicking to the network tab the poping up window was not the same instead it was a window with some autoproxy setting window so i was not be able to set it to "no proxy" again. And also with the previous attempt i found out that there was some weired proxy set that i have never seen: 218.201.21.176:80. I went back to the forum for more research and i found that i should disable some add-ons so i did disable foxy proxy. The problem seems to be gone now however my question is: 1. What's changed my proxy settings? 2. Can it be a trojan, virus or malware? 3. If it is one of them How is it possible, when i'm using ubuntu (13.04)? 4. How can i comfirm this?

Thanks for the help

Hello.

I have a large JPG on my website that I am trying to view and I keep getting the same error message. It is a very wide panorama, but it's only 20MB at 72dpi, so it should easily display properly.

It displays properly in every other browser and even on my phone. It does NOT work in FireFox on any of the computers in my studio.

Please let me know what I can do to fix the error.

Thanks, Dustin

Hi,

we have 2 citrix servers in the same farm . We want to make firefox the default browser for all of our users.We also want to ignore the settings that they decide themselves influencing the default browser.
Now the citrix forum suggested that i made a gpo that edits the folowing register keys:

HKCR\http\shell\open\command Change the value in the default key to firefox.exe location.
HKCR\http\shell\open\ddeexec Change the value in the default key to Firefox HKCR\https\shell\open\command Change the value in the default key to firefox.exe location.
HKCR\https\shell\open\ddeexec Change the value in the default key to Firefox

so i did that , and all our links now open through firefox.
However we still get the question to make firefox our default browser while it already is defined as default browser since it opens links using firefox.

the 2nd strange thing we encountered is when we open pdf's using firefox , firefox opens but the pdf's won't open untill we make firefox default browser using the provided popup window when we start firefox
i have googled this for days now without a proper answer . i even tried to run the "firefox.exe -silent -setDefaultBrowser" command to fix it on my personal profile without any luck.that's why i am relying on your answer

NOTE: it works in google chrome and IE10 - I have cleared the cache and cookies using CCleaner, I have not blocked or denied any cookies as I see thats common fault

I only just installed Firefox last night as I thought I would give it a try to compare against chrome.

Ive tried making sure allow cookies is enabled...always was, nothing in the 'exceptions' box

Watching videos on youtube it happens that videos tend to stop somewhere while playing. Going to the end thumbnails, so its not buffering. It will play past the point if reloaded but is very likely to do the same thing again.

Any idea what could be causing this issue?
