How do I make it so that when I search with my address bar it ALWAYS uses Google, regardless of what search engine is selected in the search bar? It used to be like this, but a recent Firefox update altered it. Now, when I search with my address bar it uses the search engine selected in the search bar...if I wanted to do that, I would just use the search bar! Any suggestions?

My question is similar to "Java Plug-in for JRE7u21?" but all the suggestions there that worked are for Windows, and I'm on a Mac, and I don't want to hijack that thread. For the record, that thread is /questions/958847. aw

I have Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, Firefox 24.0, which says it's up to date, and Java 7 update 45, also up to date. I only want answers for Mac OS X, not Windows, not Linux.

The online Java test works OK in Safari but not in Firefox. Firefox thinks Java is not installed. There's no "Java Applet Plug-in" in the plug-ins list.

Since Safari is OK, I assume there's a bug in Firefox. Can we narrow it down by identifying which combinations of versions (of Mac OS X, Firefox and Java) have the Java plug-in and which don't?

I'm running FF 20.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.3. I recently found that item in drop-down menu cannot be selected by clicking, although it can be selected by hitting "enter" on keyboard. I have no add-ons installed so that shouldn't be the problem. Like go to http://www.newegg.com/ and click search menu, I can't select any options. Thanks for your help in advance.

I have been having issues with certain pages loading correctly but have not been able to resolve the issues. I also tried to create a screen shot to no avail apparently. It's is not with every website only some here and there. Sometimes if I navigate aware and come back to that page it can resolve the issues but more times than not it does not fix the problem. I can also use another web browser such as google chrome or firefox and not run into the same issue. The exact same page will load correctly and as expected. I appreciate your assistance in this matter and I have done some of the trouble shooting steps noted in the frequently asked questions and what you all have suggested to resolve the issue such as clearing the cache, etc but it does not seem to resolve the problem long term

I installed Divx and accidentally clicked "please make Bing.com my default browser".

Now I have an issue that every time I open a new tab it defaults to bing.com.

I have uninstalled divx, started firefox in fail safe mode (no plugins or extensions), and I have changed about:config values: browser.newtab.url = about:newtab browser.startup.homepage;about:newtab = about:newtab and the problem still persists!

How do I get back to my normal newtab format?

I am operating OSX 10.8.5 and Firefox 26

Recently (without having installed new software or extensions) my homepage setting in firefox default to yahoo. Yahoo also showed up as one of my search engines w/o me having installed it. I deleted it and everything was fine for a while. But now instead of showing my windows and tabs from last time, it just shows yahoo instead.

This is very annoying, because I keep loosing all my pinned tabs. None of the solution discussed above are helpful and the problem persists even in the safe mode.

Below is the troubleshooting info from "Firefox about:support"

Hi! I use your awesome browser as my #1 browser. Since the most recent update, however, I can not see content on Facebook that was available (and works on all other browsers).

Here is a link where you can see it working on all other broswers but not FF:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Gables-Inn/91848818163?id=91848818163&sk=app_243138959111822

It in an iFrame FYI.

I have developed over 3000 FB pages and now they only work in the other browsers. I have gotten most of my clients to instal FF so this is an even bigger issue. I am out of ideas. Please let me know if its me or what to do to make it work.

Thank you so much!!!!

"Firefox support is a relatively recent addition to Adobe Reader, since version 10.1.4. Therefore, even though you may have had Adobe Reader installed for a long time, you may need to install a new version to gain the Firefox support. You may also find that you need to enable the Adobe add-on within Firefox. To enable the Adobe add-on in Firefox, select Tools->Add-ons->Plugins, then in plug-ins list, find the item beginning Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in and click the Enable button."

When I go to Firefox, select Tools->Add-ons->Plugins, this plugin is not there. So, where can I get it?
