I dont have a toolbar, it does not hijack my homepage. But everytime I open a new tab (which was always blank) I get a stupid bing search bar. That is the only place it shows up, but it is sooo annoying because I always go straight to typing whatever url I a going to, and this bar changes my cursors postion to it. How do I get rid of it?

I have looked in plugins/extensions. It is not there. I have looked in program files, and in control panel -> programs. Nothing there either. I even went into about:config and reset everything that had a bing value. Still having the problem. What else is there to try?

The Microsoft Silverlight plugin download page only offers a x64 plugin version, when accessed using Windows 7 x64, even though Firefox 8.0.1 is a 32 bit app .. how do I get the correct version of this plugin?

While doing a routine plugin check for latest versions here, I got the message that a newer version of the Microsoft Silverlight plugin was available from Microsoft. When I tried to download the installation executable from Microsoft, the download managed to lock up Firefox each time I attempted it (about 5 times or so) -- in the process, the file I was automatically given to download was identified as a 64 bit executable, despite the fact that Firefox 8.0.1 is a 32-bit application (I do have the 64 bit version of Windows 7 Professional). At this point, I don't know which version of the newer plugin I need, nor how to get it. Help!

Is autocomplete data editable? These days you have to fill out everything down to your inside leg measurement just to ask a simple question and it has gone from a nice to an essential feature. There is a lot of old data that could be deleted or updated.

I use mozilla to open internet and suddenly in the search engine box at top it brings me to Babylon.com which I have never seen before. I uninstalled the program through the control panel but it still appears when I open mozilla. I do not trust it and I think it is affecting my hotmail as when I sign in it will not allow mw to delete messages or signout using the signout button which I always wish to do. I do not like to just close page. The sign in page keeps flashing as connecting at the top left of the computer, rather than just saying connected.

I've successfully updated latest Java plug-in to latest version but Mozilla plugin page shows it's still outdated

Mozilla Plug-in page showed Java was outdated and needed updating. I did do that but the plug-in page still shows Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.90.5 10.9.2.5 & Java (TM) Platform SE 7U9 10.9.25 as being outdated. But when I go to my add-on page and check my plug-ins, those are both showing up as being installed and enabled and the date I updated them on which was today 12/12/12. Also I went to www.java.com to check what the latest version was and when you click on downloads it automatically checks to see if you are running the current version and it says I am running the latest version. I even went and uninstalled some old java updates that I forgot to remove in my programs. Should I just ignore the *outdated* plug-in reminders for those two on Mozilla's plug-in page since everything else is telling me I did it correctly? Thing is, how do I know when there is a new update if those two never update and consistently show they are outdated? Thanks to anyone that may be able to answer this question.
