Hi,

It started last night, corrected itself the next morning, and by afternoon it was permanent.

It shows up on the Google Search engine as Google espanol.

I have decided I want Google out anyway. I am fed up with them.

So, how do I replace Google Search with Bing Search?

In English please.

Thanks for the help. I might could do it myself but I don't read Spanish. Help.

I just updated to the latest version FF 12. After the update I can't open tabs anymore. There isn't even a button to open a new tab. The "Open link in New Tab ..." command opens the link in a new window instead.

It doesn't seem like a configuration problem. I was just wondering if a patch or fix update will be coming out soon?

In the meantime I have to use Chrome as a backup, and it's kind of a drag. :(

Windows 7 - I can no longer click and drag anything anymore. Attempting to click and move a tab simply selects the tab. Doing the same thing to a bookmark just selects the bookmark. In addition, Firefox is now hanging every few minutes for anywhere from a few seconds to a minute.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no effect.

Against my better judgment I upgraded to Firefox 12. Immediately all the bookmarks were gone. Every time I started Firefox, I got a "New Tab" with nothing else. No bookmarks. No remembering of the previous tabs. I did a restore and thought I had fixed it since everything came back, however once I shut down Firefox and started it again it was back to the blank Firefox with nothing and "New Tab". I was previously on Firefox 10 and very reluctantly ever upgrade, but I had updated another computer to version 12 with no issues so I said "what the heck, worked once should work again." Wrong. Unfortunately this is my main computer. Please help.

I have noticed after updating Firefox 12.0 the Downloadhelper's 4.9.9 icon is not showing on the top left such as around menu bar.

However, after doing some settings it appeared in the status bar which is painful. I wonder how could I show animated moving icon in the Menu bar or anywhere but on top left side?

PS* I had taken some screen shots but could not attach here.

I'm using Firefox 12 on Windows XP. Things worked fine until just this evening. Now when I choose Print/Selection in my email, it spits out multiple (like, maybe 10 or more) blank pages with just a header/footer on them. I've followed the instructions for reseting the Firefox printer setting AND Reseting all Firefox printer settings and it still does it. Everything prints fine in Internet Explorer. This printing issue is getting REALLY tedious. I don't want a complicated workaround, I just want to print a selection. NOW why isn't it working?

I request a site, even one I frequently go to and I am sent somewhere else. I go back and try again, but it may take 3 or 4 tries, then I am informed that the session has expired. I close Firefox and start over, but I am not always successful and may have the same problem. It does not happen every single time, but often enough too be very frustrating.
