I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

Firefox has begun opening very [very!] slowly, as well as crashing and freezing during use. This is happening on all of my three machines, two running Win 7 and one Win 8. I have tried refreshing and disabling hardware acceleration, but to no avail. Now it seems to freeze on opening and takes a minute or two even to become responsive, if at all. When I look at Task Manager during a freeze I see the Firefox process is using 35-50% of memory [i have 8GB, 12GB and 16GB] and up to 50% of processsor resources. All has been fine until the last couple of weeks. As an adjunct, in the last month I have noticed an almost permanent error message on the status bar - "Sync encountered an error while synchronising: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action."

Why won't FireFox save my log in for my home page?

Until the the most recent upgrade(s), Firefox would automatically save my log in information for my home page. It no longer does. When I start Firefox now, I have to click Sign In, choose my saved password (from Roboform), and I am logged in.

Sometimes I can close Firefox, reopen it and I am still logged in. Most of the time when I close Firefox and reopen it, I have to sign in again. I have the same settings in the current version as I had previously but still have issues.

I have tried all the standard 'stuff' (making sure passwords are saved, etc.) but nothing changes. I have uninstalled Firefox and started 'from scratch,' but it hasn't helped. I'm baffled.

B.T.W. if I use Internet Explorer, my Sign In settings are saved. I want to use Firefox but signing in every time is a pain.

Thanks.

Youtube videos glitching up

Every time I go onto Youtube to watch videos I can hardly even watch the videos. This glitchy mess usually happens with videos that aren't constantly in motion, like a very static slideshow. The glitch affects the video area only, and appears like 2/3 of the video has bee stretched like it's being smeared or is "raining pixels." In a few cases it's a lovely dithered effect that looks like a teenaged girl's first go with eyeshadow. For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE HELP. I am but a poor whelp that is being fed videos through an IV daily, and I cannot take my hits when the smack is so trashy.

Sorry, I took 3 screenshots but firefox isn't accepting them for some reason ...

We operate in a very restricted DNS environment and downloading sites with signed wildcard SSL is very slow so how do we disable all checks and keep HTTPS?

If we were using a self-signed certificate we could add an exception. But we use a DigiCert wildcard certificate. Our sites use a very restricted DNS with maybe a dozen URLs for which a name resolves to an IP. When Firefox is used to access our sites over HTTPS it is slow and often fails to load bu serving up error messages on the security of the site. I believe this is because it is looking to verify the certificate or revocation. We do not have this issue using HTTP. I have disabled "Query OCSP" but it has not helped.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks.
