Need help with removal of Brand Thunder remnants from about:config.

I unknowingly installed what I had thought been a persona from another site, but was actually the Brand Thunder extension Personas Interactive, which changed the new tab page and added other unwanted malware/adware and a virus. I have removed the persona and the add-on, but I think I should have disabled them first and done so in safe mode, not sure. The new tab page is now back to how I had it, but there seems to be some remnants in the about:config. Some are obvious, others I'm not so sure what they are and if they are even part of the leftovers. I'd like to know which ones are the remnants and if they are safe to remove from about:config.

These are the entries I found:

extensions.brandthunder.btpersonas.currentPersona user set string 437428

extensions.brandthunder.btpersonas.firstrun user set boolean false

extensions.brandthunder.btpersonas.installedTheme user set string 0b40d759-9986-49cb-ad76-389a3f8fb425@brandthunder.com

extensions.brandthunder.btpersonas.installedVersion user set string 1.6.2.8

extensions.brandthunder.keywordSearch user set boolean true

extensions.btMetricsLite.bid user set string ec4bda537a757075a580afa1ed8d3647

extensions.btpersonas@brandthunder.com.install-event-fired user set boolean true

browser.search.selectedEngine user set string WebSearch+ (this is in bold)


When I typed BrandThunder.com in the filter, there was three results, two of which are listed above. The third one:

extensions.register@pgport.com.data user set string {ef522540-89f5-46b9-b6fe-1829e2b572c6},0,9999,999.999.999,9999,|{c50ca3c4-5656-43c2-a061-13e717f73fc8},5300,5300,4.0.1,5300,fvd|fvd@kallout.com,5200,5200,4.0.1,5200,fvd|fbg@pgport.com,0,5100,1.6.2.8,4600,|kosa@kallout.com,5000,5000,2.0.1,5000,sm|ytvdh@pgport.com,0,4800,1.1.3,4800,|ytvdw@pgport.com,0,4700,1.1.3,4700,|btpersonas@brandthunder.com,0,4600,1.6.2.8.,4600,


What are these?

app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory user set boolean false (bold)

app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer user set integer 1352818742 (bold)

app.update.lastUpdateTime.background-update-timer user set integer 1352818982 (bold)

(bold)

app.update.lastUpdateTime.search-engine-update-timer user set integer 1352818622

(bold)

extensions.bootstrappedAddons user set string {}

browser.search.order.1 default string Google browser.search.order.2 default string Yahoo browser.search.order.3 default string Bing

browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateURL default string https://snippets.mozilla.com/%STARTPAGE_VERSION%/%NAME%/%VERSION%/%APPBUILDID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/%CHANNEL%/%OS_VERSION%/%DISTRIBUTION%/%DISTRIBUTION_VERSION%/

extensions.databaseSchema user set integer 5

urlclassifier.gethashtables default string goog-phish-shavar,goog-malware-shavar

urlclassifier.keyupdatetime.https://sb-ssl.google.com/safebrowsing/newkey user set integer 1353632794

browser.search.useDBForOrder user set boolean true (bold)

I used to be able to logon with my username and password in firefox (used it daily for ages)

However now when I enter the username and password and click log in. It just sits there and does not sign on (this is a diasaster for me since my job depends on this access)

The reason I am looking for firefox support is that if I load up internet explorer I can sign on and it works fine ??

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop and use firefox as my main browser. I have a very strange experience when browsing video sites like Youtube.com or Bumperhit.com Some videos are playing all right. But some others, show an error message "Please install Flash Player" etc etc. I am unable to understand, why this is happening only for some videos?

Also when I try to install the flash Player from Adobe's site, there is no option to save the program. I would like to save the program, so that I have to download the installable multiple times.

Thank you in advance for your valuable guidance.

For months I have been battling with slow internet connection speeds with my Wi-Fi router at home. I have changed everything and tested every alternative configuration. I have even changed the router. In the end I have worked out it is not the router, or the OS, or the windows user account that are the problem. It is using Mozilla Firefox. I really want to carry on using Firefox but I cannot. Using Fiirefox I might get a connection speed of about 500Kbs; using IE I get the full 10 Mbs that my ISP (cable) gives. It is not consistent: the problem comes and goes. But when the problem is there, it can be fixed by stopping using Firefox and using IE instead. Why could this be?

Helly, my problem started with FF 6. It keeps freezing the whole browser after a few minutes. I think every 15 minutes it's freezing. Now I went to the helpforum and somebody gave the advice to deinstall FF. Run CC Cleaner. And then reinstall FF. I did that, and seems to work. It wasn't hanging anymore. BUT it came back!!! I don't have a clue why. I changed nothing to my pc. Now I have upgraded to 7.0.1 and the problem of freezing is still here. When it freezes, my whole pc freezes. I can do nothing else. please fix it!

I recently was prompted to update my Flash player and did so. Afterwards, Flash no longer worked. I get an error message saying "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. No report available." Reloading the page over and over, it never works. Does not work on any website I try with Flash.

OSX 10.7.2 Firefox 7.0.1 Using whatever is the most up to date version of Flash right now (can't figure out the version number).

I tried uninstalling Flash and re-installing, didn't help. Disabled all add-ons, restarting, no go. Tried restarting the entire system, still no go.

Works perfectly fine in Safari.
