Yesterday the + tab would open a new tab when clicked. Today it doesn't. File New Tab doesn't work either. I am using OS X El Capitan. I really want to use FireFox as my browser -- it's much faster than Chrome. But I am not going to open a new window each time I want to start something new.

Hello,

Installed some crapware today and got trovi.com as the default page when I open a new tab. This makes me insanely angry. What's even worse, it changed the browser.newtab.url and when I removed it's config it STILL is loading the same page.

I tried to enter a new config, it doesn't work.

I tried to install this addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/developers - doesn't work.

Please help me. Do I have to reinstall the browser? Why can't I change the value?!

I am on firefox version 42.

I keep getting a request to update my firefox program even tho if I go directly to firefox I get a notice that says my program is up to date. Here is a link to the website that keeps coming up: http://alwaysnewsoft.search2updatevideo.org/?trsad=YEcLfPwZm7d8iximhLH_I_BWpDVvzylfgn5SbJcIghc.&cid=P23P4469342215690252513&offerid=2999&v_id=yCvhx2P7Ril8PGG5lM1qgq_S1dRO_5Mg6N9dmq7navU.

I appears to be the real firefox but because I have had a lot of adware lately I am very suspicious.

Is this a legitimate firefox update site?

Latest version 42.0 of Firefox broke this. Inside disqus comments people link to twitter posts. The image from those posts no longer show up. There is just an empty space. I found that I could make it work again by going into the Firefox Privacy settings and turning "remember history" back on. When I use "never remember history" the twitter "image" doesn't shot up. Here is an example"

http://www.17-seconds.com/2015/11/2015-11-08-quizas.html#comment-2348980476

It used to display the twitter box even with "never remember history" selected.
