My keyboard changes what characters are mapped to what keys in Firefox.

For example, when I try to use a question mark I get É instead. When I try to use an apostrophe or quotation marks I get nothing after I hit the key once, and I get `` a… (read more)

For example, when I try to use a question mark I get É instead. When I try to use an apostrophe or quotation marks I get nothing after I hit the key once, and I get `` after I hit the key twice. It seems to start at random. I will be using firefox for a while and not have this problem, then at random it will start doing this until I restart my computer.

I have two Facebook accounts. My main one is usually opened in FireFox and the secondary one in IE8. I have had IE hanging so access the secondary account in FF. I had a series of error messages although I am able to access the account by stopping the script. The error messages were all in this format:

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: http://www.facebook.com/help/?ref=drop:4

All have :4 at the end. I have no idea what script is running as the remainder of the script line is just the Facebook URL. Although it appears that I am running GreaseMonkey it is actually disabled.

This happens when I first start Firefox, but it might happen later in the session as well. As far as I can tell, it is a Popup in a new window, and it appears not long after I start a Firefox session. I will notice a second window indicated in the task bar, and it is always an ad, but not from the same place or company. Just some random advertisement that comes up when I start the session. I have Tools/Options/Content/Block Popup Windows checked, and the only exceptions are my bank. These ads do not come from my bank.

I accidentally installed (or not) MySearch Toolbar from third party software (FreeRIP). Upon installation, it was detected by AVG as spyware and terminated.

Now my Firefox browser has a bar that only display a binocular. This bar cannot be clicked or dragged. On the View->Toolbars menu, it identify itself as MySearch Bar.

I have checked on Control Panel->Remove Programs and also the extension of Firefox. Both don't list MySearch Bar as an installed program so I cannot removed it.

I know how to hide the bar, but I want to completely remove it. Any idea??

I am running Windows 7, 64 Bit with Firefox Mozilla 3.6.12. Have problems downloading Videos (*.flv) and save them after Re-namimg the file before download starts. The Download simply hangs and Mozilla goes Unresponsive and does NOT do anything. I see that I have DownloadHelper and it has lots of Options in its context-sensitive Menu, but not the option like "Save Target As" while downloading from IE Browser. So, I thought I should try UNINSTALLING this DownloadHelper and see if it improves the links and options. But when I search for this, I do find one KB article that points me to Article http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_add-ons , but when I click on this link, it just hangs. I can use your help in solving this nagging problem.

I have an add-on that has been fine and working in Firefox for a long time. I had been getting updates to the add-on and updates to Firefox. The last time I updated Firefox the little icon for the add-on disappeared from the toolbar. I thought that maybe in the last update that maybe it wasn't compatible and got disabled, but when I looked at the add-on list, there it was plain as day. So, I went to the website of the makers of the add-on and they said that if it wasn't working to uninstall it, but that's the problem I can't uninstall it. When I press the "uninstall" button, I get the "Do you want to uninstall XXXXX? and when I click "Uninstall" to continue the removal it just does nothing. So now I'm thinking, does this mean that I have to completely uninstall Firefox or can I go into the user profile directory and remove a file and manually force a removal.

Firefox will only run if launched as an administrator, through the administrator's account or by launching "run as administrator", thus requiring an administrative password. Otherwise, double-clicking the icon results in no apparent action.

I have completely uninstalled the application, removed the program folder, and reinstalled but the problem remains. I do not have the same problem with other applications.

Can Firefox be configured so that it does not require administrative-level permission to run?
