I have uninstalled and reinstalled the current (as of 6/22/13) flash plugin for Firefox. I also have turned off hardware acceleration but my flash player keeps crashing on every youtube video I try.

Crash reports With Hardware Acceleration: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/929ae2cc-b007-4dee-900f-a66fc2130623

Without: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/ca2d2983-77b4-4ccf-a271-9e48c2130623

Also Firefox just stopped responding when I allowed the troubleshooter, but it did give information after restoring my previous session.

http://start.search.us.com/v/2/?guid={57D051C3-199E-4DE4-9AC7-5694B9254CC9}&serpv=5

When I open Firefox it reverts to the above linked search engine.

That link is to the search engine that has infected my firefox. I have tried several methods to get rid of it. I have gone into extensions and deleted anything that looked like it. I have gone into 'uninstall programs' and un-installed anything that was to do with it. I have ran my Norton 360 scan which has detected nothing. I downloaded Malware Bytes free anti-malware software scanner which detected nothing. I have reset the home page to default but this does nothing. I have tried re setting firefox, no result. Please can you help me remove this search engine off firefox, nothing seems to work and it is very irritating. Thanks

This problem was raised 2 years ago but was never resolved to the user then and the problem they were having the same one I came looking for an answer to.

I need to be able to allow individual sites to "automatically redirect" while preventing other sites from having that privilege.

As it is now, I use Opera to access the problem site when Firefox won't allow it. I REALLY DON'T want to change this setting universally.

How to stop Firefox from hanging and lagging?

I have tried nearly everything I have seen suggested so far, but nothing seems to work. Firefox started hanging and lagging randomly a few days ago. When scrolling, hovering over buttons, clicking and typing, there tends to be a half-second or 1 second delay. Youtube videos and other video websites are basically unwatchable because they lag so much.

So far I have tried:

- starting firefox in safemode - resetting firefox - using hardware accelleration and not using hardware acceleration to see if there was any changes. - disabling all plugins and extensions and disabling each one-by-one to see if any took up a lot of memory usage. (Firefox memory usage was sometimes over 400 Mb) - downloading a freeware program called "Firemin" which apparently stops memory leaks when used to launch firefox. (Memory usage went from 350-400 Mb to 4-8 Mb !) This helped slightly when watching youtube videos but not with any other hanging and lagging problems.

I'm currently using Firefox 22.0.

Please if you have any suggestions respond because I do not want to have to resort to using Chrome. I am too used to using firefox and don't want to lose my bookmarks.

this has been going on for a while and i am considering the previously unthinkable and switching to Chrome, i don't want to but waiting five minutes for firefox to open is getting on my last never. the thing is, it only is this slow the first time. after that it is fast as usual. i have tried disabling all addons and plug ins, nothing works. as i said, it only does this when i try to open it up first thing in the morning after booting up the computer. i have a fast computer too, an intel i7 3770 processor and 16 gigs of ram so that is not an issue. i am running windows 8 by the way. i click on the firefox icon and it does nothing for at least a few minutes, then opens. very frustrating. also, i have disabled prefetch as well, no good. attached are screenshots of my addons and plug ins. yes, i have uninstalled it completely and reinstalled, no luck.

When I go thru the directions to install the plugin it only shows up to Windows 7. I have Windows 8. The media player works fine thru Internet Explorer, but I'd rather use Firefox.

Problem - I have an important viewing of my daughter's 3d/4d ultrasound this Saturday and I don't want to mess up my laptop by installing the wrong version and not being able to view it at all.

Thanks.

I use Gmail and occasionally receive emails which contain embedded images rather than attachments. These images do not appear when I use Gmail from Firefox, but they do appear when I use Gmail from Chrome or IE. If I forward the mail then the images appear in the forward mail window. Have tried all of the recommended actions but with no success.

When is Firefox going to fix this damn problem? everyday about 2 or 3 times I get this on my windows 8! Firefox only solution seems to be to disable the warning and wait 45 seconds for it to be acknowledged. that isn't a solution! Fix the DAMN PROBLEM ALREADY, from what I see in the forums, it's been going on for about a year without any solution!

when i search something from google search (in a webpage) it goes to the yahoo search website and show the results!

1.) there is no extension on add-ons, anything to do with search or yahoo 2.) i have tried reset the keyword.url from configuration 3.) i also tried to remove yahoo search engine from searchbar (didn't help)

This article didn't help either (same as above though): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-toolbar-has-taken-over-your-firefox-search?esab=a&as=aaq

And i have avast and malware-program and those doesn't find anything.

No help. Everytime i search something in google, it goes to the yahoo search webpage! how to get rid of this yahoo rubbish?

I have no idea how it came. Maybe something to do with vlc codec pack? "Myfreecodec" that i tried to use when trying to play some mp4-file... i think i haven't installed anything else lately... And i always uncheck the "add this one on your browser..."
