We used to get, when clicking on Mozilla, a simple box (Google) with a space to put the subject you wanted searched. Simple and uncluttered. I went to Mozilla because of this, as Internet Explorer was messy and cluttered. Imagine my dismay when I find Mozilla has gone the same way!!! I do not want 'Alot' as the homepage for searches, nor do I want all the crazy advertising, etc. - I just want the simple, uncluttered box back but do not know how to achieve this.

I have Firefox installed in a linux-system, everything was working fine, then i moved all extensions to the global extensions folder, now the problem is, Firefox will not start unless i remove extensions.rdf in the profile-folder, no errormessage is shown, as soon as it starts it recreates extensions.rdf and then won't start the next time. I've already tried cleaning out the complete profile, which will work the first time firefox starts, but as soon as it has created extensions.rdf it will not start again.
