I will detail the steps when attempting to install Firefox. Screen prints attached. 1. Go to the "New Firefox" webpage 2. Run is not an option, so exe file is saved to "Downloads" 3. FFox installer indicates "Now Installing" 4. This process runs, and runs, and runs until the blue bownload arrow is clicked (top right hand corner) 5. This closes the Now Installing Window and a box appears indicating "Completed". I presume the installer has fully downloaded... ? 6. Clicking the exe file in downloads folder starts the installation process. 7. After 2 or 3 minutes an installer message appears indicating "Hmm, for some reason we could not install Firefox". The suggestion is try again, which I have done 3 times with no success.

My default search from the address bar has been hijacked by Wikipedia somehow. Yes, I know. Of all things, this hijacking directs my searches to Wikipedia. Only sometimes, though, not all searches are sent there, and I don't know why. I would expect ask.com maybe, but wikipedia. No lies.

I've tried starting in safemode, and I've run malwarebytes several times. I've gotten rid of all of my addons, and nothings changed. Uninstall and reinstall firefox, delete the appdata files, nothing works. I'm even trying a portable version of firefox, and after a short while, I got hijacked again. I'm at a loss.

Is there any known malware that would redirect searches to wikipedia? What steps should I follow to fix this? Does anybody have any idea what could cause this?

I was downloading LogMeIn Hamachi. I did a custom install, removed everything I didn't want, and I thought all was good.

Until I wanted to search something.

DEFAULTED TO YAHOO. I used to type something in the URL Address bar and have it redirect me to Google search, as it should. Now it goes to yahoo. Here's an example: What it used to be like: http://i.imgur.com/Lb9vrXK.png What it is now: http://i.imgur.com/kYMa3ha.png

Can anyone help me fix this? I tried: Starting Firefox in Safe mode without addons Resetting Firefox Uninstalling it from Control Panel (couldn't find it under anywhere) Am I doing something wrong, or is Yahoo forever defaulted into Firefox?

I have a windows 8 64bit laptop with Firefox 21.0. At night I turn my computer off (not restart), I have it in fastboot or whatever, and when I login I launch firefox and nothing happens. I then open task manager and find firefox and it says it's using 178k or some really small number of memory, then for the status instead of saying "running" it says "suspended" I then end that firefox and start a new one and it works fine. Why is it not working the first time I start it though?

  • Update* -See screenshots-

Screenshots: http://oi39.tinypic.com/33comrn.jpg this is what happens when I first try to start firefox after turning my laptop on.

http://oi43.tinypic.com/kn9dc.jpg this is what happens when I close out firefox that isn't responding in screenshot 1.

I know how to set homepage correctly. I am an experienced user. My issue is when I start up Firefox 20.0.1 it always starts up two tabs. The first is the correct homepage. The second is a blank tab which it switches to. I only want the first tab which is the homepage. How do I stop the second tab from opening. The homepage is set only with one URL and is correct.

I just updated Firefox to 22.0 and now when I type something in the address bar, the drop down menu displays search suggestions. I used to be able to type a letter or two of the website I wanted to go to and just hit enter and Firefox would automatically take me there if it was the first thing in the list. However, now, it's more of a hassle because search suggestions show up along with items in my history. Is there a way to remove these suggested searches?

I can't access certain sites from my laptop anymore due to a Content Encoding Error message. I've contacted the site owner in question and it's running fine. I can also access it on my other desktop computer using Firefox.

No other browsers are able to access the site, either, from my laptop. My laptop is a Windows 8. I have Avast Antivirus and Malwarebytes installed, if that makes any difference. I tried allowing the app through Windows Firewall and it didn't help.

I've tried refreshing Firefox, restoring my laptop to an earlier date, and going into the about:config menu and following steps from other articles concerning this problem. I've cleared my Cache and my Cookies. Nothing fixes it.

Does anyone have any advice? I figure it's a problem with my laptop, but I've never run across it before. Help?

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

I'm going through hell to just get the URL for the Firefox browser/start page. I just did a factory image recovery and all I get after downloading and installing the Firefox browser is a tab that says "about blank." I'm not getting the URL in the address bar so that I can put that URL into my home page protection (I'm using Advanced System Care Ultimate). Once I get that URL and place it in the home page protection box of my security software, I will be good to go, because I want to use Firefox as my default browser. I've searched the FAQs and asked the question in every way that I know, in English, and there seems to be nobody out there who can just tell me the URL for this start page. While I don't understand why this is so difficult to get, I certainly need and would be grateful for a fix to this problem.

Control key (ctrl) zooms window, can't copy, paste, etc. using the control key without the window zooming in, this does not happen using other browsers, it started about 1 week ago, possibly after the last firefix upgrade, windows 8

When I scroll down a page, it automatically goes back to the top. Not sure this is related strictly to Firefox.

Win8 + FF 59.0.2 (x64) I can play HTML5-Videos I can play Non-HTML5-Videos But I can not play "H.264" and "MSE & H.264" videos with FireFox. When I'm downloading the MP4 Video (i.e.) I can play it within Windows with the media player. I.e. this videos does not play: https://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Azure-Friday/Get-started-with-Azure-for-NET-developers https://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Azure-Friday/Deploy-Bitnami-Nodejs-HA-Cluster-with-Azure-Cosmos-DB You can check this also on the youtube site: https://www.youtube.com/html5

With Google Chrome its possible to play all videos but I would like to further use FF. When will come a repair for that - thank you.
