Hi, running FF 42.01b on 64 bit Windows 10

Each time I load FF, the options page opens as well as my home page.

I have changed a few settings and thought maybe I need to save the settings, but can't see a save setting option. Not sure why this is happening. Have uninstalled, cleaned settings and re-installed, same thing.

Advice appreciated.

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.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1091977]

When I search for something on Google using the search bar it says Untrusted Connection, and it doesn't let me "Understand the Risks" and go through. I'm able to get to Google.com but when I search for something it comes up glitched looking (Shows the old Google Logo, etc.) it doesn't let me use the features such as Images, News, Search tools. It automatically goes to Untrusted connection.

Also when I go to Google.com it says Not Secure Connection.

I'm not certain, however once I allowed the update to install (yesterday), Version 42.0, some of my incoming e-mails are showing the ORANGE warning triangle. I did not have this problem until yesterday after doing the auto update. What steps can I take to ensure that my version is not the problem? I use Yahoo, and have had it for about 10 years or more without ever having this problem occur. The only method I can use to get rid of the orange triangle is to reload using the "In" box. Otherwise the orange warning stays there for everything, even those which I know are safe (e.g. from Mozilla). The orange warning triangle continues to stay with many of the incoming e-mails, primarily those with images.

ANY AND ALL ADVICE WILL BE MOST APPRECIATED.

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.
