I've seen quite a few threads about this on here, and I'm now wondering if this actually ought to be reported as a bug...

I've always liked Firefox's better privacy options compared to other browsers, but this particular issue kind of renders them useless.

If I go to Tools>Clear Recent History>Everything (with ALL boxes checked) this does not have any effect whatsoever on the list of recently closed tabs & windows.

ie, If I then go to History>Recently Closed Tabs> all the previous sites I have visited are still there, despite having cleared "everything" from history.

Other threads I've seen on this topic, replies often suggest fiddling with settings in about:config or deleting/renaming sessionstore files...

Does anyone know of a more straightforward way to *actually* clear all browsing history?

Having an option to clear everything from the history is pretty useless if the next person using the computer can simply look at the 'recently closed windows' list and immediately see the sites you've been reading..

After upgrading Firefox to version 14.0.1 i noticed when i typed in my company's website address that firefox went to the https:// version of the site when it never did that before.

Example, if you type in amazon.com in the URL bar, you briefly see that firefox turns the url to https://www.amazon.com before being auto directed to the normal www.amazon.com site.

My website did not have a secure index page and people were getting a server generated message until I found this issue out.

Is there a setting in Firefox to prevent the URL bar from selecting a secure connection first? This behavior does not occur in the most recent versions of I.E. or Chrome browsers on a desktop.

Any help would be greatly apprecaited

It is hard to believe no one has ever asked this question before because I see all sorts of unworkable solutions when I google it. Nonetheless, I am finding the pc system in general extremely unintuitive in this matter which should be quite simple. I want to return to bing as my default browser after ask.com installed itself when I inadvertently used it to search for something. Help! Mercury retrograde proves that Murphy was right!

Currently using FF 14 (release channel) with Flash Player 11 (updated today, 7/21/12). Flash objects, such as Facebook games, run slow/choppy to the point where it looks like a collection of tiles updating over the course of a few seconds. I have deleted temp files, compacted databases, uninstalled and reinstalled FF, updated display drivers, ran the flash objects in full-screen mode, and tested the same flash objects in other browsers. Running in full-screen mode alleviates the slowness, but there is a delay when loading content that is normally not noticed when viewing on a normal page; however, the action plays as it should. Viewing the flash content from other browsers, such as IE, allows the content to play fluidly as it should. Flash hardware acceleration (Settings) toggle does not seem to alter performance, and the Global Settings are allowing websites to store sufficient data. Rebooting also does not resolve the issue.

The PC in question is running Win 7 32bit; 2 GB RAM; Dual Core 1.8 GHz processor; ATI Radeon HD 2400 graphics @ 1280x1024 resolution.

Task Manager shows that the Flash Player uses up to 60% of the CPU time, Firefox uses less than 15% at peak, and the plugin container typically runs below 10% when viewing the flash object on a page normally. Full-screen viewing of the flash object can have Flash Player take up to 70% of the CPU time, but playback is fluid.

I have ads from a http://clkads.com this seem to be a browser hijacker. I see this ads either or facebook on the side banners, in between search box and categories on ebay. I've notice that if you disable flash it does not show anymore, but well, I need flash. I have checked my pc for virus and it is clean. I have the latest Norton 360 6.0 version I have a fast HP Envy17 3D laptop, with and I7 and solid HD running on Win 7 64b. I have not noticed my pc slowing down, but I am sick of the ads and adobe flash is constantly crashing, something I never happen before.

I have found some websites claiming to clean it, but I do not feel confident downloading software I don't know, also installed add-ons to block but still they filter.

There is no information either here or on the Norton DB.

Hope some one can help me and or some one else to remove this annoying ads.

When typing a response etc in Yahoo Mail the font size automatically increases after hitting enter and or backspace. font size continues to get bigger each time enter is used. This seems to have started after updating Firefox. On Yahoo mail boards some are saying this does not happen on IE.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit,

I have been running Firefox without any problems, however, today when using it it suddenly crashed and I was unable to start again.

It would display a menu with choices whether to run in safe-mode and some other options, but I would not be able to start in safe mode, because, while displaying the options, "windows is trying to solve the problem" message appears freezing firefox and the only way out is to end the program.

However, If I choose to launch firefox in compatibility mode with XP sp3, I can use it without any visible problems.

The only changes I've done is updating Java yesterday, but there weren't any issues right after the update.

How could I fix this?

/I need the latest Java to run some applications (chess in particular) that requires the latest version/

I don't have anything in the crash log from today

I've cleared my history, cookies and cache. I've restarted my computer. I've uninstalled then reinstalled Firefox. I've changed my proxy settings to "No Proxy". Still it shows up with this message for every website. My other browsers work fine, and it's not an internet issure. What can I do now?
