I have been using Firefox for many years now and it uses Google, but for the past week or so when I have typed in my search it automatically switches it to BING search. I have checked all my settings and programs but BING is not listed, so why the automatic change over, and how can I fix the problem?

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

Firefox update 84.0.1 blocked bookmarks and folders

1. Have you tried to move bookmarks from a folder to another or tried to create new folders since the update 84.0.1?

I can't move bookmarks for example from "Other Bookmarks" to "Bookmarks Menu" and I can't create new folders since the update 84.0.1. Nothing happens. Occasionally something happens, but when I restart Firefox, every changes have gone! This is weird. New folders are gone and bookmarks are where they use to be!

2. The "Other Bookmarks" folder is really annoying. What other bookmarks? Why you people decided behalf of me what folders do I need? If I wanted a folder "Other bookmarks", I would created it myself. That's also why I tried to move bookmarks from "Other Bookmarks" to "Bookmarks Menu" but nothing happens.

3. Now some people have decided that they put the Other Bookmarks folder to the Bookmarks Toolbar! Now the Other Bookmarks folder is in two places at the same time! Are you crazy? And I can't even move bookmarks from the Other Bookmarks folder.

4. I did this:

"Try to set browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 = false + restart."

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1311062#question-reply

That will remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Menu but I still can't move bookmarks or create new folders because of the update 84.0.1?


(edited to fix Firefox version from 80.0.1 to 84.0.1 - c)

Why has Firefox stopped streaming CBS all access? It works using Microsoft Edge, or on the App on a tablet. I've changed all the recommended settings, but no luck for over a month now. I've tried on two separate laptops, and it will work on neither. What is it I should be doing? I'm using an updated version. I like to stream through a certain laptop that I have to use Firefox on or I wouldn't mind so much as I can stream through other servers so I know it's not the internet speed as the CBS tech guys implied it was. I just get a continuous white circle when I try to stream. I think that's all the pertinent information I can think of. I hope you can help.

Firefox blocks a bank account. Bank says it is not their fault. Bank account can be accessed using a different browser. Bank account can also be accessed using Firefox on another computer. Tried to refresh Firefox and gained access to the bank account but it worked only once or twice before Firefox went back to blocking it.

Not sure why this page deleted my question while trying to share data but I'll start again.

I'm getting Malwarebyte alerts from something in firefox.exe, it's called restoro. It's not a program that's in my control panel so I can't delete it. It was quarantined but seconds later it was trying again. I included an image of the last scan done Nov. 28. I've deleted firefox before but it came back when I installed again. Is it something that firefox is supposed to have or is it some trojan that's latched onto firefox?
