My problem lies with the about:home page.

when I click home, it goes to the firefox start page. I can't search anything there.

When I type something in, and press "Search" (the blue button), it doesn't do anything. If I use the address bar or the search beside it, it works, but it won't work on the about:home.

Any suggestions? I've added the troubleshooting information as well using the plugin

Hi,

I've been using Firefox for man years, on all my devices.

But since yesterday, on my main PC, Firefox crashes constantly.

It appears to be random, on various sites, at various times (ie 10 seconds after restarting, or 10 minutes after restarting).

I have tried:

- Resetting Firefox. - Reinstalling Firefox. - Disabling/re-enabling extensions or plugins (though I don't believe I updates any since yesterday when the crashing started).

It's really annoying, and I've had to use Chrome (gulp) today. :-(

Hi, all :)

Lately, I've been having a problem with some links: they become unclickable when zooming in(Ctrl + Mouse Wheel), but when doing some mild zooming out, it becomes clickable again.

Here are some screenshots I've taken, to make my problem clearer:

http://i.imgbox.com/adlB9NtJ.png As you can see, when zoomed in so it would fill the screen, the mouse cursor isn't detecting any hyperlink and clicking on it won't link me to the desired page.

http://i.imgbox.com/adyPwwFh.png In here, as you can see from the mouse cursor, after zooming out a little, it becomes clickable again.

I would really appreciate if anyone could offer any solution to this. Thanks.

PROBLEM SOLVED! This is so embarrassing, but here's what fixed it. I'll leave the question here in case others download the add-on and can't figure out why it's doing what it's doing, but if a mod wants to delete the question I won't mind.

Anyhow, I right clicked on exactly the right spot on the bar and chose Delete, which brought up the add-on tab, which showed an add-on called "Default Tab," restarted Firefox, and now both behaviors are gone--no more search window in the tab bar, and no more search box in new tabs. I must have thought Default Tabs sounded cool, but didn't expect it to do what it did.

********************************************************************************

Sometime between Friday and this morning a new search box¬ appeared in Firefox that called itself the “Updated Search Bar” until I tried it the first time. I’d like to avoid resetting Firefox, but if that’s the only way to fix this I guess I’ll have to. All suggestions are welcome.

The box looks much like the default search box except that it has a big orange button on the right saying "Search." It’s located in the tab bar, next to the last tab, taking up valuable real estate if I have more than 4 or 5 tabs open, which I often do. The default “search” is Bing, the other options are things like Facebook and Twitter, and it has no option to manage search engines. It doesn’t appear in my extensions or plugins, and I can’t find information about it anywhere.

BTW, my old search box is still in the navigation bar, and although I haven’t been able to get rid of Bing for the “search” search, I’ve made DuckDuckGo the default by moving it to the top of the list.

Thanks for reading!

I can provide a screenshot to help illustrate my problem. Every page I load has numerous ad boxes embedded into the page from "Ads by Browse to Save". Does anyone else have this problem? Is this something that firefox added to their browser or do I have a malware problem? (I see no option to post a screenshot of the problem, as is advised on the community help homepage. Maybe I will have that option once my question is posted.)

This has been going on for years. When I have 3 or 4 tabs, especially facebook open, and am watching a youtube video Firefox freezes up a lot. I just dealt with it but I'm starting to get sick of it. The only addons I use are DownloadHelper and AdBlock Plus. I have a lot of plugins disabled. I don't know what is causing this but I just checked on my CPU Usage and Firefox was using 266,000+ K and that's not counting Flash, which was using 70,000+ K. Someone please help me fix this extremely irritating issue.

For the last two days since upgrading to FF20.0.1 I've had nothing but problems with both my AOL and Yahoo homepage freezing. The only way out of this is to use the task manager to close the application. Thinking it was something to do with FP I downgraded to 10.3 and it still was happening. So I did the following: reset FF-twice, restart in safe mode, but, I disabled what extensions I had anyway. In AOL I reset mailbox settings. Disabled hdw acceleration in FF. This all started when FF disabled my FP11.3 which was working fine. I updated to FP11.7 and then I had all kinds of problems with the home pages. I've sent an email to AOL to see if they know anything. It's making me crazy. If this is not fixed pretty soon I'm going to have to use IE9. Not something I really want to do. Can anybody help??!

So in every advertisement link, and email link i press/get I get this massage.......

                                                        Problem loading page.
                                                    The connection was reset.
                        The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

1) First there are times the advertisement itself shows the massage, at that point I don't even know whats there. 2) Then there are time when the advertisement shows but when I go to press the link I deal with #1 again . 3) When I go to type the advertisement in a search engine (If I saw what it was) it comes up just find. 4) This being the worst is when I go to press a links I get in any email even college emails, which can get very troublesome.

I have looked at the forums the site had suggested but have already tried most all they have mentioned with no prevail. And the error is the same even with Internet Explorer. If anyone has any suggestions please tell me and I will try them all even if its ones I have already heard of. Also just to mention I keep my history, cookies and what not where it will never remember anything that way I keep it clean.

I've been having trouble due, apparently, to a file named popuptransparent[dot]xul, of which I have 3 instances on my computer (running Win XP/Firefox latest v.). Using my AVG home-page window, I search for "popuptransparent" (to try to fix it) and the results appear OK. But then when I click, for a new tab, on the link "popup transparent" in the query, "Did you mean: popup transparent", NO RESULTS appear in that new tab. Further, when I then reload the AVG panel that searched for "popuptransparent" in the first place, it, too, now shows no results. Nor does a Google panel now show any results. They show the quantity of results but just white screens for the results themselves.

The links https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/948804?esab=a&as=aaq and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/952141?esab=a&as=aaq don't help me. I have re-installed Firefox v. 20.0.1 to no avail. How to fix it?

Should I delete from my computer all 3 of those [dot]xul instances?

Whenever I visit a page that contains even the smallest of Flash objects, Firefox stops responding briefly and then a dialogue pops up to say that Shockwave Flash has crashed. I have tried all of the fixes I have found on other questions: I have reset Firefox, run it in Safe Mode, disabled all extensions, reinstalled both Firefox and Flash, downgraded both Firefox and Flash and turned off Flash's "Protective Mode" etc. The problem only seems to have come about after I upgraded to Firefox 20 yesterday if that is of any help. Flash also crashes on IE and doesn't work properly on Chrome (YouTube does not play sound for example). I have run out of ideas and I was wondering if anyone has anything that I could try. Thanks in advance for any answers!
