Firefox used to have a screen full of my most visited sites open when I opened a new tab. Now, after installing and uninstalling Incredibar software (malware is more like it), I cannot seem to get the MyStart page to stop opening when I create a new tab. Is there any way to restore the original New Tab page that I had before?

    • RESETTING DOES NOT WORK**

Hello, I can recently acquired the Search Engine Malware? (I think it is a Malware)

http://isearch.claro-search.com/?affID=114169&tt=120812_bandext_3312_4&babsrc=HP_iclro&mntrId=907087e4000000000000002185985c90

I can not for the life of me take back the "HOMEPAGE" I have searched around everywhere and found how to take over the "NEW TAB" issue and it is back to Google.ca.

But I have yet to find a single issue with the Homepage being automatically hijacked and sending me straight back to the website no matter what I do to change the URL.

I have done the following things.

1: Removed the Toolbar from Add-ons

2: Removed the Toolbar from Control Panel

3: Shut down my computer and rebooted into Safe Mode - Networking to run Malware and other virus scanners.

4: Changed my Hosts File

5: Turned on Firefox in Safe-Mode resetting all defaults.

6: Changed the URL several times. ____________________________________________________

I can set the homepage to "Blank" which solves the issue. BUT I want Claro off my computer for good not just covered up with settings.


NOTE: I do not have expert knowledge in computerized configuration so I am at a lose into doing something like Manually checking my systems files and such to remove this issue.

If you know how to fix this, Please be detailed and simple.

Also! If i type anything into the search bar incorrectly it automatically uses iSearch-Claro to search for results.

I had tried to change my default search engine to no avail. Had read a lot from the help file but it seems none of the recommendations had work. The problem is in the upper right hand corner search box where the default as of now (the search engine when I open firefox for the first time) is Yahoo. I had tried to change this to goggle by clicking the drop down arrow and select a new search engine but does not take effect. Yahoo is still in effect as the search engine in spite of making the change. I had also followed the advise of some to change the default engine by typing "about:config" in the address bar and reset some values but yet after closing and opening firefox again, Yahoo is still the default search and could not be change by selecting in the drop down list of the search.

Hi. Every time I open Firefox it stays on the homepage for two seconds, then it exits and shows the "Firefox has crashed" window. Usually, I can restart the program in Safe Mode and then it works just fine, but I can't be on Safe Mode forever! I've tried restarting my computer, resetting Firefox, searching the Support site for answers, but nothing works. My version is 14.0.1 and it's up to date.

This is getting really annoying, help please?

Since I got up Wednesday evening, I have been getting "This video is currently unavailable" when I try to view Youtube videos, both embedded and on the Youtube page for said video.

This happens more often than not. It only happens in Firefox, Chrome and MSIE do just fine. When I got up Thursday evening and started my system, I got a message from Adobe that Flash needed to update, I updated, no effect.

Here's three vids where the problem is happening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6phrXDGHIo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ4ffqXg6RA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-6SmnvMbGk

Apparently, the problem is with Firefox. What can I do to fix this?

At least once a day on my work PC Desktop I will type in Yahoo.com or Amazon.com or any other valid popular website and all of a sudden I get the "Security Exception" error message and when I select to confirm it I then get:

"Invalid URL The requested URL "/", is invalid.

Reference #9.a2fc54b8.1345130184.5cbbba6 "

At that point I cannot access that website at all. Then I have to clear all history and restart my computer, at least once a day and hope it works. I've scanned the support forum and I have done everything they suggest: disabled all add-ons (not that I even have any), reset Firefox, restart in safe-mode. Nothing works, it's very frustrating. It completely interrupts my workday. HELP!!

Hi, I am having the worst time trying to remove Babylon homepage from Firefox, this is what I've already tried:

- Disable and Remove Babylon add on - Uninstall Babylon toolbar from Control Panel - Remove Babylon search engine from Manage Search Engines - Reset all lines that contain something about Babylon on about:config page - Change homepage from Tools > Options > General tab - Clean all registry keys, values and data with Babylon in it - Reset all registry keys to their default values - Uninstalling Mozilla Firefox - Deleting every file about Babylon - Reinstalling Mozilla Firefox - Resetting Firefox to factory defaults from about:support page - Resetting Firefox from Help > Restart with Add ons Disabled... - I have even tried to restore my system to a point before it started happening.

I have already read every forum in mozilla support, but nothing seems to work, I just can't get rid of it and it is absolutely annoying. There is nothing in babylon web page that has helped me.

Do you have any other ideas to remove completely this annoying issue?

I have an old XP machine and have just built a brand new windows 7 machine. I need to move my history information over to the new PC. I have found the instructions for moving my bookmarks, but not for moving my browsing history. I rely on my history for finding quite a few of the sites I visit regularly rather than cluttering up my system with more bookmarks and icons.

How do I save my history and get it onto my new machine. I have and external HD and cds I can use for this.

I have some demo pages for a plugin on github. Oddly, I can't get the favicon to show up in Firefox (try the simple demo page). They show up in webkit browsers and IE without any problems. The effected pages are "Main", "Simple", "Expand", "Video" and "FX".

Even more strange is that only one demo page ("CSS3") shows the favicon on the tab and when saved as a bookmark, but none of the other pages will.
