Ever since I updated to firefox 20.0 I've been having a problem with firefox. Every time I start up firefox I get a message saying that this is so embarrassing for trying but failing to restore my previous session and it gives me the option to either close the page and go to the welcome screen, or to restore my previous session. My preferences has the show my home page selected, and every time that I close out of firefox, I close the page by hitting the red x, and then I highlight either the firefox icon or the firefox tab at the top of my screen and select quit. I reset firefox twice and that didn't work either.

Hello, I have Firefox sync on several devices and they all tell me that Firefox Sync does not work because of server maintenance. But the Status page says the servers are up. From the log files I can see that it is just bookmark synching that fails, tabs, history etc... work fine. Here is an extract from my log:

I already tried reseting my profile (well, making a new one), nothing works.

Unbelievably, I haven't seen this posted on a legitimate forum anywhere, nor can I find answers unless I want to pay for a removal tool from sites that I don't trust. My computer is infected with "Starburn" browser hijacker. No Antivirus tool detects it nor removes it. I've tried Malware Bytes, Ad Aware, and AVG antivirus. I cannot find anything in add-ons or extensions indicating that it's there at all but my computer is 50% slower and my CPU usage is outrageously high even with only one tab open. I've allowed upload of my add-on information below.

I've checked Task Manager and, admittedly, normally have many windows open. There are numerous processes running but when I search the web for what they are, they all seem to be legitimate. I've also used Rootkit Revealer looking for a couple of registry files I've seen commonly posted that people "SAY" are associated with Starburn, but they don't appear in my registry that I can see. There is nothing to uninstall in Control Panel "Add and Remove". There are no visible add-ons or extensions relating to this browser hijacker.

If anyone has ANY help or suggestions please post them. This hijacker affects ALL browsers. So if I switch to IE or Chrome, it's the same thing, which tells me it's not a Firefox problem but possible something deeply imbedded in the system. So resetting Firefox to its defaults (which I have not done) would almost certainly not resolve the problem. Thanks for your time.

I've looked at all the old topics where opening a site by entering a URL into the Windows Run box or clicking a shortcut invariably results in "Go to a website" greyed-out appearing in the address bar instead of the actual URL.

Again, disabling anything does... not... work.

And, for example, griping to a plugin provider such as Real also does... not... work.

Look over my troubleshooting list and tell me if I'm missing something here.

How can I stop FF accessing the network long after a page has been downloaded? I tried toggling network.dns.disablePrefetch boolean false to true, and network.prefetch-next boolean true to false using about:config, but it did not help. I am concerned that there might be some malware running, though I have a fully updated Windows 7 Professional x64 system with Microsoft Security Essentials. I also ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which found no problems. I am basing my observation on my Network Activity Indicator icon in the Taskbar.

I've tried other ways to search that website like navigating to the file I need, to no avail. I had to install a plugin in chrome too, but now that one works. It seems like interoplabs has a website problem, but it's been this way for a couple of days.

I have both 32 bit firefox and 64 bit waterfox installed on this computer and they share a profile, but I don't think that's the problem here.

Thanks

My computer had a system restore after a storm shut my computer off after being frozen. No other issues are going on other than when I try to use the search bar, nothing happens. If I use the drop down box in the search bar, the only options I get are Add "Firefox Help", and Manage search engines. If I click on manage search engines, usually I get a list of options, google, yahoo, etc, but it is completely empty and restore defaults is grayed out.

Per other suggestions on this forum, I have upgraded to the latest firefox version, I have also downloaded the serachreset addon which didn't help. Also, there was another post on deleting the formhistory.sqlite file under my profiles, however, when I went to try this, there was no such file for me. (from this website's instructions http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_search_or_add_new_engines)

Please help as I don't want to have to delete the entire program just to find that upon reinstall, I don't have a fix.

Hi folks,

I've got the feeling that I've been here before!! I logged on this morning, and my Roboform toolbar was missing (again)!

Eventually, I discovered that Firefox had updated from V21 to V22 overnight. A quick Google search has led me to discover that V22 does not work with Roboform. Therefore I need to get back to V21. I cannot find anywhere how to get back to V21.

I have found in my downloads folder the V20 link, so I now have V20 reinstalled (= Roboform is working again), but I would rather have V21.

Anyone got any ideas about how to to this???

Thanks

I have noticed that on some websites the navigation buttons do not appear. In particular the TomTom shop would not work in Firefox because instead of the buttons I get a moving icon of bars, like a progress meter, but no button to click. Works fine on the old Explorer I have still on the PC. Also noticed that the Google "paid for" search results do not do anything, (but this may be down to the fact I have blocked doubleclick). Currently running Firefox version 20.0.1 on Windows 7 32 bit. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Regards

Regarding old Firefox folder that strangely appeared on my desktop---may I delete it? I like a clean house. Did not read where anyone asked that question and got a specific answer. It has been there since March 10th, according to the properties button. I just noticed it. But I do not want to delete anything where I may lose extensions or something else. If it is just a backup, can't I just get rid of it. I would not know what to do with it anyway.
