Hello,

a year or two ago I spent hours trying to find an answer to this question and I did manage to do it, but sadly a couple weeks back I had an unplanned data loss, and I'm unable to find any solution to my problem anymore.

By 'search engine on my New Tabs page', I mean the dialogue box with search engine of choice that wasn't there in earlier version of FireFox. I want it gone. Not changed to Yahoo, Bing or anything else - just gone.

If I recall, the solution was to go to about:config and change some parameters to ones that would make the thing not appear at all (rather than remove it entirely), but if you know how to have it gone not only visually, but also formally, I'm obviously fine with this solution too.

I was working with pages in LibGuides and now they all show up as one long page, and, no matter what I try to do to reset it, it stays the same - I even uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it, but that didn't solve the problem, either.

Hi there,

When using Firefox, the developer tools box is constantly flashing up on the screen and disrupting my sessions

Shown here -> http://i.imgur.com/qqxmo89.png

Can someone please let me know how to permanently disable it? I have tried addons like Keyconfig, but they don't seem to be able to stop it from popping up every five minutes.

Scenario: I have a huge webpage which takes a minute or so to load. When I switch to another tty to do something else there, and then return to X after a while, Firefox has still not completed the task. Running "top" on the VT shows near 100 % CPU usage for the Firefox process for a few seconds, but after that, this figure drops to zero.

This seems not to be a problem with X --- I can happily do the same thing with, e.g., QGIS. So far, Firefox seems to be the only exception.

What can I do to prevent Firefox from stopping in this situation?

Regards, T.

Three days and counting. Access to Outlook.com email suddenly stopped. I get a 'looking for search conduit' and a blank page. I I try to go to any help site that contains outlook, it will not respond either. Questions in Mozilla support even got the same response. So I can't even access help. My email for this site is outlook and I won't even know if I get a response through email because I can't access it. Stuck between a rock and a hard place.

when trying to download material from a variety of sites such as novamov, vodlocker, videoweed etc, I notice they all call mightycdndelivery.com to retrieve the file, but the files retrieved are always corrupt and although I can start watching them, they cease up after 12-25 minutes of playing and just jump to the end.

I'm not sure whether this is a virus of some kind, or whether it's something used by firefox or actually by the sites in question, but I just want rid! Can anyone help me please? Thanks

I downloaded a video from my own myspace page using the Firefox Unplug Addon. It saved to my files, but when I try to open it, I get a message that says, "A license has not been issued for this computer". When I click "ok", it brings me to the Presonus Sudio One block asking me to purchase a license now. Actually, a license has been issued for this computer, and I understand this is an issue with Presonus customers not getting properly established with the licensing of their product. But it should not stop me from playing my own videos on my own computer.

I had no problem of this sort before today. I installed CCleaner few days back to remove cookies and things. I didn't made back-up of anything and today I tried to download a Youtube file, but I couldn't. I paused the file and when I resumed it, it failed. I tried this many times but nothing is helping me out. My Firefox version is 32.0.3. I have noticed one thing. Whenever I was able to resume a file, I saw that Firefox creates two files in the download directory: A part file and the original file(size is always 0 KB). But this time, only the part file is being created, and I think this is the cause of the problem. I just can not resume any file. No Add-ons, no antivirus problem or anything. tried Resetting Firefox, launching in safe-mode, Uninstalled CCleaner, Reinstalled Firefox, but nothing seems to help me. Please help me out guys :/

I get many ads, like TremendousSale, De Compras, LinkBucks. I wrote this message while ago and i wrote WHOLE PAGE. It disappeared because of one of THIS ads.... I wrote so much, and its gone now. Please forgive me but I'll write it again but very shortly :'( SHORT VERSION: Ads, many ads. I tried AdBlock, it only makes these pages white. I tried AdwCleaner, they install again by themselves. I tried manually removing them from program files, addons, and stuff. NONE WORKED FOR LONGER THAT 1 MINUTE. I cant write more, im tired. Forgive me again and accept these screenshots as a gift. I suppose they wont appear because ads keep appearing and the browser keeps redirecting me so I have to COPY ALL THIS MESSAGE in every minute (like right now). Thenk you and may the internet bless you.

When I have many tabs open in a window and use the < and > buttons at the ends of the tab bar to scroll left and right, if I click slowly enough one click scrolls one step, but if I click too fast it starts to jump by full window width usually overshooting the target by far.

Currently is is kind of impossible to move say 6 steps to left as clicking 6 times slow enough to not cause that annoying jump just takes a very long time

How do I make it so that one click on the button always moves the tab bar by one step and never does that jump?

When I close firefox and open it again the allowed list is empty.

I've marked it as don't notify me when a site tries to redirect and I've turned off add-ons but still when I reopen firefox the list is empty.

I've tried adding to the list manually and then via the drop down allow this site that option that's at the top of the page that's still blocked.

I can find others with problems but they don't lose the list when firefox shuts down.

Any ideas?

Having the need to open a browser html page without menus, button bars, ..., but only with the window frame, I found a solution using the command-line argument [chrome].

So in Windows 7 using the system option RUN I ran the following command: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe-chrome http://localhost/Pgina1.html

Actually the html page opens with only frame of the browser window and the links in it work. Unfortunately it does not work anymore is resizing page content through the combined action CTRL + [mouse wheel]. It is possible to restore it, even by exploiting other command-line arguments?

Thanks.
