My home page is Google. However, whenever I open a new tab, the website opened isn't Google, it's something saying 'Results by Bing' in the upper right corner. How can I ensure that new tabs start at Google (or at any other page I set as my home page)?

This is extremely frustrating and has been happening for months now. Sometimes the sites load, but then stop working after a few minutes, and then it's nearly impossible to get them to load again. It just hangs at "connecting" for ever until it either times out or just goes to a blank tab. Other sites work, but anything Google related such as search, gmail, finance, etc or Facebook simply don't work.

It appears that this is a common problem recurring every 6 months or so according to this board. I've tried clearing cookies/cash and then even reset Firefox and it still happens. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Thank you very much!

I have on old MacMini that cannot support updates for Firefox, but I made the mistake of downloading 48.0.2 when it was offered today. Now my Video Download Helper is gone and so is my AdBlock and I cannot find versions that are compatible with this browser. How do I find the old versions of these add-ons and get back to where I was?

As of this past Thursday, I am unable to paste the vast majority of content copied from the internet into the body of emails composed in my Gmail account. This is not exclusive to, but seems consistently to be the case when attempting to copy Google-related content (search results, YouTube content, images, and so forth).

I am able to perform this function using Chrome, though for a variety of reasons Firefox is my preferred browser, and I would as soon not have to alternate between the two. To my knowledge, no updates have been made that would correspond to or be potentially responsible for this issue.

I've seen similar issues reported on other forums, but none more current than six month's past (either they have not been recently reported or this is an issue particular to me, it seems). In these forums there are suggestions made in the way of modifying scripts, but I would as soon avoid that if possible as it is clear that it my cause my computer to become vulnerable to security invasions.

Not that this issue isn't fairly direct in my reporting it, though the accompanying screenshots illustrate my (1.) copying search results from Google and (2.) a comparison between the results attempting to paste the same content in Chrome and Firefox.

[Amendment: The images appear to not be properly uploading, but may well not be essential...]

It should be noted that this is the case whether using the drop-down right-click menu, keyboard shortcuts (ctrl+C/ctrl+V), or the in-window menu...

I was just working on an eBay listing and I pressed the "delete" key when the cursor was not in a field and it made my browser go back a page. In doing this, I lost an ENTIRE LISTING WORTH OF WORK! This is such an annoying feature! I don't want my delete key to do anything except delete text. How can I disable this feature that makes the delete key perform the same function as the "back arrow". For example, if the cursor was out of this box right now and I pressed "delete" by accident, I would have to re-type all of this text! This is a stupid feature. Please tell me, how do I disable it?

I have a nearly-new Mac 10.7.5. Downloaded Firefox just fine. But many (not all) pages give me a popup saying that additional plugins are needed to display all the content. When I click the "Install missing plugins" button, I get a popup saying, "No suitable plugins were found." Does this mean the popup saying I am in need of a plugin is false, or what?

Mac OS 10.7.5 MacBook Pro Using Firefox 19.0.2 Cannot access any Las Vegas Hotel/Casino websites today (trying to book a room). Get a dark blank screen with a tiny white dot in the center. It shows as "aclk (GIF Image, 1x1 pixels)". I am able to see sites for example, expedia just not the actual hotel sites. I see answers for Windows but not for the Mac. I can't find any "Banner Ad Block". I don't have any problems with any other sites. This just started today. I didn't seem to have any problems yesterday accessing the hotel sites. I'm the only user on this laptop. Thanks

I have produced a web page which uses svg images. One of these is here: http://donwagner.dk/JZSS5.4.svg.

The svg's are produced by Adobe Illustrator, version CS5. Viewed in any browser the images look good at any magnification, but when I print the page in Firefox the image is seriously blurred, seemingly because the rasterization uses the wrong resolution.

The same happens in all browsers, not quite so bad in Chrome but still not perfect.

Do you have plans to fix this bug, or do you have a workaround?

Images spazzes and there's a lot of images being jumbled up as I click one tab to another. For eg. When i'm on youtube, then i click on another tab, say Facebook, the tab will change to facebook but the video player of youtube will be right smack in the centre. It remains there until I scroll up or down, which erases the video player.

I made the mistake of clicking "check for updates" because it instead downloaded the update. I have my settings set to "check for updates but let me choose whether to install them" but the "Check for Updates" button does not allow me to choose... they're downloaded immediately.

This is a serious violation of my trust in Firefox and I will not allow these updates to be installed. If I can't stop them... I will uninstall Firefox and wash my hands of Mozilla permanently.

I recently updated firefox and found that soundcloud wasn't working. It's loading songs but once I press play nothing happens. I received an alert in the top corner of the page suggesting I turn off adblocker or enable flash. I don't have an adblocker and I have the flash plugin and it is up to date. I can't figure out what else it could possibly be.

I don't have Java installed so clearing my cache isn't going to fix the issue. Please help ;__;

In the last 2 days firefox updated auromatically. Current version is 24.0

When I select conmand F on Mac OS X. Usually the find box appears on the bottom left of the page. Which it does. Usually once I select command F I can then type a search term in the area automatically this is broken in the latest update. Even when I type in a search manually the find is still broken.

I use this feature a lot every and would not like to be forced to use chrome.

If anyone can help with a fix that would be great.

Thank you.
