There is a ton of info on how to get this FBI ransomware off Safari but none about how to get it off Firefox. I have uninstalled and re-installed, cleared history and tried to reset all to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When entering a partial name in the URL box of Firefox, I get a search results page from Softonic. How do I get rid of Softonic?

I have read the top four results (see URL list below) from a Google search and none of them begin to answer by question. (1) There is NO program listed as "Softonic" in the Windows 7, TaskManager, Processes tab. (2) There is no "Softonic" program listed in the Windows 7-Start-ControlPanel-Programs-UninstallPrograms. (3) There is no Softonic program listed in Firefox Extensions; Plugins; nor Services. (4) Softronic is not my Firefox home page. (5) When I type an incomplete URL into the URL box (upper left box, below the tabs) an hit return, I get a Softonic search results page that NEVER has anything I want to go to. It all looks like scam pages to me.

I want to get rid of Softonic. Clearly this is hard because I do not find any real solution on the web. Most of what I find are patronizing answers saying "Read the previous answer" but I have done that and they helped not at all.

Any new information or instructions would be gratefully appreciated.

Please bear in mind that I do not know how to do this, and this is a computer, which means it will do nothing unless I give it exact instructions. If you think you can help me and want to, be sure to give detailed complete instructions.

Thanks so much.

Firefox has been slowing down, and using a high amount of Memory. I have tried all of the steps described in the various main support articles about too much memory.

I am running V 22 on Windows 7. Both Firefox & the OS are completely up to date. I have NO extensions & NO plug ins enabled now. I disabled all that are installed. I have never used themes. I have cleared my cache, and then created a completely new blank profile. I have restarted into Safe Mode (Add ons disabled) and seen the same behavior. I tried both a clean install (deleted the install folder) & an uninstall followed by a reboot & fresh install. I have turned off my Ad Blocker, and checked my firewall & antivirus (MS Forefront) to ensure everything is clean & unblocked.

Even is safe mode, or under my empty profile, if I open Firefox and 4 total tabs. They are not uncommon ones; Gmail, Google Plus, Facebook, and Twitter. Memory use, under the best case, hovers between 350-500 MB, with 400-450 being most typical. Firefox has now become the slowest browser on my computer.

I don't feel like it should require this much effort to just work well. I've used several threads & diagnostics on the site, and am comfortable following instructions. None of them have gotten me closer to a solution.

WebEx Meeting Center has stopped working since FF updated to v.22. I had this problem when FF updated to v.21 and I added a change to the plug-in load options in about:config called "plugins.load_appdir_plugins" and set that to TRUE and that corrected the issue under FF v.21.

Now that 22 loaded the other day, I cannot get the Meeting Center to run. I get the Java security warning asking if it is ok for this Java app to run and I allow it and then, instead of running, I get taken to the Meeting Center download screen even though the Meeting Center app is installed. This appears to be default behavior if the app doesn't start.

If I reinstall Meeting Center, it says would I like to Modify, Repair, or Uninstall and I've tried all options with removing and reinstalling and that has not helped. I've even removed and reinstalled Java and that has not helped.

Any suggestions, anyone?

I want to revert from Firefox 22 to Firefox 21. Firefox 22 does not support Selenium properly so it is very important to get back to a version that does. Having found out where to get older versions I looked in the mac section. Many languages. Downloaded UK version. Turned out to be Russian. Same with French version. I could manage fine in French too. Russian no. Can anyone tell me the solution please? Thanks. Gerry

Since the last update (version 22) my browser seems to be randomly resizing websites to show much larger than their native resolution. I have two websites of my own and they look dreadful when re-sized. I spent hours refining them and getting them just the way I want them so my concern is that the viewing public aren't seeing them the way that I intended if this is a common issue.

I can zoom back out so they look as they should but as soon as I restart the browser the problem re-appears. This never happened with the previous version, why is it doing it now?

I just created a new gmail account and firefox is not giving me an option to save the password (the pop-up does not appear). I have several other gmail passwords saved already on this computer and have not changed any settings. I accept cookies. When I go to another site (facebook) and put in a new login info, the option to save that password pops up like normal.

I use a mac running snow leopard. Firefox 22.0.

Please advise why gmail specifically is not allowing me to save my password.

Also: there really should be a method to manually enter passwords for sites rather than just being able to delete them in "preferences".

I have done all the recommended things on the blog. I have tried to remove any Adobe Flash that was in the machine(I wonder!). The processes are very complexed so I do wonder. My system is XP 3. I choose to run FireFox. I went through My Juno to no avail also, that uses Explorer. I don't find Adobe Flash in plug-ins but Shockwave Flash is there. I do have three out of date plug-ins, Adobe 8, Java Deployment Toolkit, and Java(TM) Platform. Most sights presume that all will be well after above has been done, but Oh No! Help would be appreciated.
