I have an issue with one of my Firefox extensions/plugins, it's called MyStart: Incredibar, and I basically installed unintentionally when I installed a program with a Brothersoft downloader/launcher. I tried uninstalling Mystart and I tried permanently stopping the service that updates the MyStart incredibar plugin. What it basically does is, when I open a new tab in Firefox, it opens some sort of website, I don't have a problem with it loading a search engine, the only problem I have regarding the search engine is that every time I open a new tab, it actually loads a new page. I even tried resetting the certain figures in about:config which helped temporarily, but after I restart Firefox then it still runs the search engine when I open a new tab. I use Eset Nod32 and Anti-Malmwarebytes as my system's defense, and I've tried scanning with both of them but they don't help at all, does anyone have information that will permanently remove this plugin from my PC?

Screenshot of this problem can be found HERE

My About:Config settings looks like THIS

Whenever I open my Firefox browser (7.0.1) and no matter which website I wish to visit, I see that during the open page process that (in the bottom left corner of my screen) a number of URL's start to load - before my desired website page opens. Depending on the number of such URL's, my desired website can take a long time to open. One of these URL's is "www.superfish.com" - I want to remove this permanently ... such that "www.superfish.com" never ever runs. When I look into my Firefox Add On's and my Firefox Plug In's, I find that "Superfish" does not list as installed on my computer. When I look into my Start/Programs, I also find that Superfish is not listed. When I go into Add/Remove Programs, I also find that Superfish is not listed.

HOW DO I REMOVE "SUPERFISH" ... PERMANENTLY?

(My computer is running on WINDOWS XP Professional ... fully Updated).

(NOTE: I originally posted my question some 2 weeks ago. To date, it would seem that no one in the Firefox Community has got the answer to my problem. Surely this cannot be so - when I Google on the subject, it would seem that many other Firefoxers have encountered this problem; but - NOBODY SEEMS TO HAVE THE SIMPLE SOLUTION!!! Who can help me (and all the others???)

I often view a map from a government mapping service that requires a plugin (from Autodesk). On my older computer running Win XP and FF12 the plugin was installed in the plugins folder of Firefox.

I now have a new computer running Win7 and FF12 but there is no plugins folder. Where do I install the plugin so it appears in the plugins list under Tools>Addons>Plugins?

Thanks in advance.

By the way, I am using a gaming laptop so I am not sure why I am having these problems. My Flash plug-in and firefox are updated to the latest versions, too.

I installed the jdk 1.6u7, and then I open firefox, I see there is a java console 6.0.07 in extension, but in plugins, there is no java. and I can't open java website, it shows I don't install java in my machine, but actually, I have installed jdk 1.6u7. I think only if the java exists in plugins, the website can get the jvm and run.

it seems it is ok if I install a jdk which will create a plugin in plugins, and the extension can't be used.

I'm fine with running 7.1; the risk is very small, and I'm willing to accept it. Or does someone have another solution?

I have tried reinstalling the Java Plugin for Firefox over and over and over again, but it says that I still need to install it when I go to a website that requires it. I made sure that the plugins page for Firefox says that it is enabled (which it is). Java works fine in IE for me, and Chrome. Firefox is the only browser where Java is not working.

Please help me, or I will be switching to a different browser. Thank you.

First, let me explain. I work in a support role for a company that utilizes certain element management systems to monitor and troubleshoot network faults. Due to our company's security and application support policies we are forced to use a dated version of Firefox and Java to access the EMS's webserver.

The problem: With the recent update to Mozilla's blocking policies the Java version we utilize is being blocked and access to the site no longer functions properly. We need some method of workaround that will enable us to circumvent the block.

Disclaimers ahoy: we actively and willingly acknowledge the risks that are inherent in actions such as I request. I would ask that discussion pertains to the topic as we need an immediate workaround to access our tool and a long-term -safe- solution will be cooked up with the help of our company's processes.

I am happy to provide any details that may be needed.

Thanks! EDIT: I resolved the issue myself: see reply below.
