I've been away from my desktop for a week and now the searches in the address bar are not working. For example, I used to just type 'test' into the search bar and the tab would show a list of Google searches. Two words work though. Any and all help would be deeply appreciated. I've tried Search Reset, changing the keyword and fixup in about:config.

Our site is lsracers.com, as soon as you open the site,an audio file is supposed to play, (lower left hand corner an icon is displayed) It says, a plugin is needed to play this content, this is on a win 7 Ltop. If I use an XP pc, it gave me the option of activating the plugin, Windows Media Player plugin dll3.0.2.629 and it plays the 2:40 second file. Why can't I get the plugin to work with FF in win7?

Only My Default Profile user Cannot Add a Permanent Exception

Hello All,

Running Firefox 31.8.0 for OpenSUSE 11.4 (*which is the highest version available for my OS)

A few months back I had updated Firefox (*I installed a patch that was available this morning to go to version 31.8), but I can't remember from what version to what version, or if that was even the root cause of the issue when I updated it sometime in 2015. But, ever since that I have been having issues adding a "Permanent" Exception for any of our Internal https sites/servers that have an expired certificate.

So for example, I go to this one server https://55.55.55.55/ and when I do, I get a warning that: "This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to 55.55.55.55:8443, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure...."

So I click "Add Exception" and then in the Pop-up I leave "Permanently store this exception" checkbox checked, and I click "Confirm Security Exception" and when I do nothing happens at all... If I were to then uncheck the "Permanently store this exception" checkbox and click on "Confirm Security Exception" again, this time it works. But, it's only storing a temporary exception, the permanent checkbox used to work at some point a while back but now its not...

However, if I re-open Firefox and choose my secondary profile called "temp" and load that instead of my regular profile "default", and I naviagte to the same page and Confirm Security Exception with the Permanent checkbox checked, it works perfectly.

Is there something wrong with my Profile? I have some much under this Profile I really don't want to loose it.

If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to respond. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in Advance, Matt

WHY IS GOOGLE NOW SHOWING UP IN MY NEW TABS AFTER THE UPDATE?? I AM FURIOUS

As a default, the new tabs screen should be blank, just like it always was.

I do not want a work around, or to have to mess with this.

I DO NOT want to see google, or any other product, showing up by default when i open a new tab.

This feels like the Microsoft strong arm tactics of the late 1990s. If I want to use google I will...BUT I DO NOT WANT IT FORCED ON ME!!! I trusted Firefox and allowed their updates and today they abused my trust by trying to shove products down my throat. I am furious.

Google seems to be the new evil empire, just like Microsoft used to be....

"MEET THE NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS".

It looks like it is time to find a new browser, it looks like Firefox has sold out to Google, this is sad day.

I do not want a work around, I want new tabs and windows blank by default.

I hope this is fixed in the next day or so, otherwise I switch to the new browser my friend told me I should be using anyway.... JUST LIKE WHEN I LEFT INTERNET EXPLORER LONG AGO.... AND I NEVER LOOKED BACK and I have never opened IE again.

Please don't make me reboot my whole system and clean it all out.... I would rather stick with Firefox, but you need to fix this. I need to be able to trust you.

I am grateful for the fact of Mozilla and I use Twitter a lot.

Although I am not technically competent, I do have experience of using Mozilla and Thunderbird for quite some years and am willing to share my experience.

I obviously do not want to make matters worse for questioners and need some advice about how to begin.

Is there a Forum where Folk such as me can share experiences of answering Tweets and also just be given examples how the system works, please, or might it be better for me to resign before I start rather than cause complications for anyone?
