Somehow I got the search.conduit.com problem it was on my home page and I get it when I open a new tab. I have tried about:config changing the URL and I followed the steps for deleting User.JS and I found a User file (did not specify if it was a .JS ) but when I tried opening it I got and error. I also ran the SearchReset Addon but no luck. Well the only other option I see is reinstalling FireFox but I'm affraid I will loose all my bookmarks. Can you pleas help me?

Last week, I downloaded Mumble, a voice chat program. I was playing World of Warcraft at the time, and needed to download Mumble on the fly, so I was insufficiently careful and downloaded an extension, Websteroids, at the same time. Websteroids highlights words in text documents which, when scrolled over, lead to advertisements. The claim of the Websteroids website is that it turns a webpage into a meteoroids game.

I have repeatedly disabled and removed it from my extensions list, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, deleted files with the Websteroids name on it, uninstalled it and Mumble, and any other files/programs that I could find from that date.
I've run my antivirus program (AVG), spybot s&d, and lavasoft ad aware and followed the advice from their scans. Nevertheless, Websteriods keeps reinstalling itself without warning.
I have restarted Mozilla in safe mode and I've also deleted anything I could find from the publisher, Creative Island Media, LLC.
The next step that I can think of is a system restore. Before I do that, is there any other less drastic step that might work? 

Thank you

Hi,

In previous versions of Firefox, I used to move all the navigation bar items to the menu bar.

But now that the tabs can be at the very top of the window, which saves some useless space (great work there guys), I have to hide the menu bar to use it (and use the Firefox button).

Since I cannot find all options that I used to find in the menus in the Firefox button (it has less details and I have an additional module - ScrapBook - adding a menu to the traditional menus), I tried to move the menus to the navigation bar so I can use both at the same time. It seems that I cannot move the menus anywhere else than in the menu bar... Why? I don't see any reason for the menus not to be moveable as other items.

It would give a possibility to use both old (and extensive) menus and the new button at the same time.

Thanks.

Many addons hangs and high CPU/RAM usage (/questions/976131)

I have an issue thats been plaguing me so far for a month in Firefox; after Firefox has been in use for quite awhile (open for many days with hundreds of pages throughout those days being opened and closed) it never releases the RAM it has used, ive seen it go from being initially around 400MB at start in the first 30 minutes of being opened then after an hour it goes to around 600MB-900MB, that number is somewhat normal for me i guess (in the days of using Firefox 4 id get that usage alot on my old netbook) and then it goes to the point of insanity at random and uses a whole 2GB and once its done that its almost unusably slow and at times must be killed with the system's Task Manager.

This isnt normal. Especially because this happens when i have nothing but Firefox's homepage opened and everything else closed. Its as if all the content on the pages ive visited gets hoarded by Firefox over time and it never gets released, its almost as if Firefox is like how Windows 98 was if you kept it running for days without shutting it down.

Ive done practically everything to try and remedy this as was suggested by the kind helpful people in the linked thread.

  • Ive disabled all addons i dont need
  • Ive gotten rid of addons i dont need
  • Ive started a completely new Firefox profile and in it use nothing but the addons i need for my day to day browsing (so nothing else beyond what i need is enabled or in Firefox in the first place)
  • Ive updated flash player and most of the other plugins firefox lists
  • Ive updated all of my computer's drivers and updates from Windows Update
  • Ive cleared the cache and cookies and persistent data repeatedly to try and empty Firefox's used RAM
  • Ive used about:memory's "reduce memory usage" option to clear out Firefox's RAM but it did nothing, if anything at times it made it go up a few megabytes or two
  • As suggested i disabled 3 "jetpack" addons that i needed because they supposedly were the cause of this
  • Ive enabled addons one by one to see which is the problematic one, in each time that i did that when i found the culprit and disabled the addon that i thought was the one at fault the problem would only return in a matter of time making all that effort go down the drain
  • Did a crapton of virus scans
  • Ive read most of Firefox's help articles on fixing it, ive done it all
  • A portable install of Firefox runs just perfect, and even a fresh new profile without a single addon is perfect, its when i need addons the problems arise.
  • I have run memtest, memtest86, and even the memtest that comes with Windows, all show nothing is wrong with my machine


Ever since i created a new profile my previous problem of Firefox's context menu being as slow as molasses is gone, but the rest lingers on still (albeit less i admit).

So far Im left with two seemingly related problems in forefox, in short: Firefox's RAM usage at random stays very high even if there is nothing but one tab open, heck there could only be the homepage of Firefox open and itd still do that even if i leave it like that for hours without touching it. Heres an example from earlier today https://app.box.com/s/sc7xpmsjnmf18q3rx12t

And heres after i used about:memory's reduce memory usage command https://app.box.com/s/whbay8b4l2z89grdphzd

And if Firefox is not doing that, then i get the other problem of the CPU usage having a spike every so often that freezes up Firefox for a while, when it does that Window's Task Manager lists Firefox as using around 10% CPU usage, which is alot considering ive never seen Firefox use more than 5% at worst before. It even at times simply stays like that while its idle using that CPU figure. I dont have a screenshot at the moment of Firefox at it since its not doing it but heres a screenshot of another process doing it http://vvcap.net/db/aSXmdVEsoZ-9tQj4TnH6.htp

At this point i dont know what to do anymore to be honest, i love Firefox and its addons, its what makes it unique, without them i just cant browse, i could just as well use IE (ew). Part of the reason i got a beefy computer was so that i could use Firefox instead of Opera without having to worry about its infamous memory usage (at the time i recall it being a memory hog it was in the days of Firefox 4 -14, after i used Firefox 21 things had dramatically improved since) Ive gone down to using nothing but what i ONLY need for daily browsing in the new profile and kept all other kinds of use of Firefox's addons strictly to usage inside a virtual machine (VMWare to be preice). But still the problem lingers on. Im sorry that this is long, but i just want to be detailed as possible so that this can be solved

Finally, my specs; as i have no idea if the attached troubleshooting contains it or not.

Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2.00GHz (with Turbo Boost 2.9GHz) Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz Radeon HD 6770M (HP) (theres integrated graphics too i guess) 112GB ATA KINGSTON SH103S3 SCSI Disk Device (the SSD i have Firefox installed on)

In addition to the question below, another problem is not only are my email responses erased when the browser refreshes, the message itself is no longer available. I have to start from the beginning point in my email list, rather than remain on the once-opened email.

By the way, I have reset and restored my Firefox as a solution, which didn't help. I did this twice, following instructions. The process was tedious and I had to recover quite a bit of information, not to mention a problem with merged bookmarks. I'd like to avoid this solution, at all costs. Here's what I said earlier. Again, thanks for any/all help you can provide.

For the past several weeks, now, I've noticed that my browser "refreshes" the feed more frequently, so frequently, in fact, that any emails, forms, or survey questions that I am answering get wiped clean. This started happening with the latest update. I am unable to locate any setting in my preferences that will stop the constant refreshment (reload? page update?). This is also frustrating when trying to make purchases on line, and as I said, write emails, complete forms, complete surveys, etc.

Thank you in advance for quickly resolving this most frustrating problem? I use a Mac, and am running Mavericks. This problem was present with the previous OS, too. Thanks again!

I own elbertkarsten.com and run non-SSL http servers on ports 80 and 8080. I also run a SSL http server on port 443.

If I exactly type "http://elbertkarsten.com/" Firefox changes the protocol to https and issues an SSL request to my webserver over port 443.

If I specify a port (80 or 8080), Firefox will change the protocol to https and issue an SSL request over that port.

My server logs no redirects. This is entirely Firefox's behavior. I am able to use the same URL with wget and there is no protocol changing problems.

If I specify a protocol I would expect it to be used.

I updated from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 and ever since Firefox has run somewhat strangely. In particular when on sites with a lot of images like Facebook. It is like there is some kind of Flikr effect between the desktop and the images and between the images and the browser (almost like old 16 bit video games flikering). It is not too bad but it is an issue. I have tried resetting firefox and restarting the computer. I haven't tried a repair, and I haven't done an uninstall yet.

The new window is "http://block.policehunt.org/?id=d04201572567089f9b464bbb1b065531". It says in very broken english that they recorded me accessing child porn and in order to unblock my browser, I must pay $300 via some payment outlet. When I try to close the window, a pop up asks, "do you want to leave this page?" IF you click on yes, it blinks and repeats the same pop up over and over.

The English used in the message indicates it is clearly a fraud.....it appears as though it may be a virus, although I have an internet virus scanner.

Any suggestions how to "selectively" remove this "blocking" window without having to reset firefox entirely?

I use a parts look up program called Microcat , the service is used with either a local database or a server database. I use the local database option , when the application starts it uses my default browser which is firefox. That part of the application works fine, but when I go to print within the application all I get is either blank tab, or a pop up with a print button that doesn't print. All these features work fine in IE 10 or 11 I have read through and followed several troubleshooting tips from the Mozilla website. I can send screen shots if required . Another thing if I try to print within the browser , all I get is a blank page.

I have a new laptop that I'm trying to move my booksmarks etc from my old laptop. I used sync once before on a laptop that I returned to the store because of repair issues. So, I know I've used it before. After I enter my email address, I didn't know my password so I reset it. When I went to use sync, I got the12 digits that were given to me on the new laptop and entered them into my old laptop. Then it would go to the next page and ask me to enter my username and password again and asked me for a recovery key. I have no recovery key. It says for me to go to options then sync and then recovery key. Well, I go to options but there is no selection for sync. It just lists the menu bar and tool bars and add-on bar. Under the Firefox button there is a set up sync option but when I tried that it said my username was already used. I would then select I've already got an account and the same thing would happen again! It asks for the 12 digits again and the cycle starts all over again. Now I've also tried my main Firefox password and it says there's no such password. So I have been sitting here for hours trying to figure this out. The first time I used it I had no problem at all! I put in the 12 characters and it synced. I don't understand why it's not working now. I really need an answer on this.
