I use Firefox as default browser with start page "about:blank". When I start Firefox, Process Explorer (Sysinternal Suite program replacing Windows explorer) shows directly a process tree consisting of one parent- and four to five children-processes, though just one Firefox-window with one tab is opened. I cannot remember that it has been this way earlier. Symantecs Internet Security does not show any notice concerning this fact. Thankful for explanation and/or suggestion for action to be taken.

Google's rainbow G icon displays as my favicon for all YouTube pages and videos that I bookmark. But in the tab, YouTube's red rectangle with a white play arrow still appears.

This issue first appeared in my bookmarks several weeks ago. I do not have this issue in my Chrome browser. I've already tried the Forget About This Site option in History, but to no avail. I've also tried clearing cached web content and site data in Firefox's Options, again to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.

Whenever I want to print something and change the settings, that means I click the button settings on the printer menu, firefox crashes. My printer is a Samsung SCX-4200R. My printer also started printing in the wrong size, that means only half of the pages are printed because the size chosen is bigger than the printer paper.

Hi, I installed ubuntu on this computer, and Bookmarks toolbar option is - as said in the title - not available (there is no option when I click on "Barres d'outils" (toolbars), not even the menu bar option.) I tried with the menu ("alt" key) options too, and there only was a link to the personalisation page. :/ I did had the option a few days ago on a VM on another computer, and when I looked it up today, the options disappeared too. I don't know what kind of magic it is, and google sensei does not seem to want to show me another way to activate this toolbar. ^^' Thanks for any help ! :D

My normal home page doesn't come up any more. I tried to change it back to the normal page by right clicking on the FireFox icon on my desk top. then selecting Properties. When I did this, the address in the Target field was for FireFox, not for the page that displays. The page I don't want is for tracking packages shipped by UPS, USPS, Fed Ex, etc. The page I want is att.my.yahoo.com.

Under Options -> Privacy & Security -> Certificates:

You can choose "Select one automatically" or "Ask you every time". How do I change the default certificate or change the order of the certificate list when you click "View Certificates". I need multiple certificates to access different services so I can't just delete the others. Is there a place in about:config where I can change this?

Very recently, I am forced to use Internet Explorer or Chrome to load myuhc.com. I have no problem with any other website, including another UnitedHealthcare site. The tech personnel at this website told me to switch to Chrome. I had an old IE loaded, so I use that. Do you know of something I can tell them if I call them back?

I found that when I go to youtube and play videos which are 1080p 60 fps they don't buffer all the way. What's weird is that when the videos are playing they don't buffer and when it catches up that's when it will try and buffer. I play the same videos on chrome and no buffering problems.
