Close Firefox Open Firefox, it will go to F**$*n babylon Type About:Config in address bar, hit enter In the search bar type browser. Scroll down At > browser.newtab.url you will see listed a long string, this is what loads F**$*n babylon... Right Click on that line and select Modify Delete the string and leave http:// at the start Type in www.google.co.nz (if in New Zealand) or www.google.com or whatever page you want when you open a new tab! Go OK Close Firefox Open Firefox, and hopefully google is your home page anyway, but... when you click a new tab, you will get google, now F**$*n babylon Cheers from Ted in NZ

I get an annoying ad at the bottom of my screen. When I hit "disable", it shows up as a sidebar. How do I get rid of these annoying ads?

I have looked and haven't found anything on this subject. I'm using Firefox 16.0.2. on a Windows 7 system. I get these ads in a banner covering the bottom of my screen. If I click the "X" button, it will disappear for a little bit and reappear. If I click the "disable" button, it'll appear as a side bar and it doesn't have a "disable" button on it, just an "about this ad" button.

If I click it's "X" button, it reappears as a banner at the bottom of the screen. While the ad is in the side bar position, I get this annoying banner at the bottom saying "related: ".

How do I disable this? It's annoying and I get enough ads on the websites I search.

My machine is Top of the range (my Company builds them so it had better be :) ) Amd 1100t , 8gb ram , Windows 7 64 bit etc, etc... The is not a hardware problem , but a software problem with FF...Any help would be appreciated as I hate using IE 8 for anything at all :( but I have to keep it on my machines just to run my remote security cameras at my Computer shop ???

Original question...as question length is limited ...not very bright that limit by the way :(

As I own a Computer company I am fairly computer literate but cannot find a plugin that allows this to work in Firefox.... but I would have expected it to work in the new Firefox :( All the best, Brett :)

Firefox only solution seems to be to disable the warning and wait 45 seconds for it to be acknowledged. that isn't a solution! Fix the DAMN PROBLEM ALREADY, from what I see in the forums, it's been going on for about a year without any solution!

I keep getting this message on Firefox: Unable to connect

        ' Firefox can't establish a connection to the server www.examplewebsite.com
            
         The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
   moments.
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
   that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.'

my other browsers (IE and Chrome) work fine. I want to use firefox as this has some useful add-ons which are not available on the other browsers.

I've checked my firewall and deleted firefox from the list of programs allowed and then added it again but this did not work. I've disabled by firewall, but firefox is still unable to connect. I've uninstalled and re-installed firefox but this also did not work. I've reset firefox to default settings and this did not work. I've also clicked the 'no proxy' in tools/options/ etc but this did not work.

Please could someone help!

I had Firefox running with probably 8 windows. I closed them all, plus other programs and rebooted the machine. After that Firefox wouldn't start. I have uninstalled and re-installed twice. The Profile manager won't run ... so I manually removed the preferences. I have tried clicking on the desktop icon, right clicking, right-clicking the firefox.exe entry in the file manager. And nothing happens. The firefox.exe *32 process appears in the task manager ... but the program isn't running. Absolutely nothing happens.

I am running Win 7 on a ACER laptop with an I5 processor and 4Gb of memory.

For a few weeks now, when I am browsing the internet all of a sudden a new tab will open, and it is either something from "wartune" which I have NEVER played, or the one where it tells you your current firefox is outdated.

I have ran a malwarebytes and AVG scan on my computer and the problem still persists. I have went into my add-ons to see if I saw anything suspicious in there and even went through my programs and uninstalled anything I think should not be there, with the problem still there and beginning to become very annoying!

Can anyone help please?

I use mozilla to open internet and suddenly in the search engine box at top it brings me to Babylon.com which I have never seen before. I uninstalled the program through the control panel but it still appears when I open mozilla. I do not trust it and I think it is affecting my hotmail as when I sign in it will not allow mw to delete messages or signout using the signout button which I always wish to do. I do not like to just close page. The sign in page keeps flashing as connecting at the top left of the computer, rather than just saying connected.

I updated Firefox to the latest version 7 rev 25. I've lost my menu, can't see anything but black and a few icons. cannot see bookmarks, menus, etc. I've had to switch to an alternate browser, which works fine.

I think you are going to lose many users over this problem. It is aggravating to say the least. Please help.
