Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

I am using the latest updated version of Firefox on my MacBook. The MacBook has Snow Leopard OS with all updates installed. Recently I have been using a website to watch TV shows on the computer (http://http://streamallthis.me/). It has the nasty habit of opening tabs in the background while I watch the show. The site it always opens is http://http://www.putlocker.com/file/B119FD2BAC80777D . I have the prevent pop-up option checked but that doesn't stop it. Once it opened 61 tabs in the background. Sometimes it opens so many tabs so quickly that Firefox hangs. It even has frozen the computer while doing it's thing. I have checked and have no viruses or malware installed. I tested Safari also and it does the same thing there. Does anyone know a solution for this problem?

Firefox Problem with Youtube: "An error occurred. Please try again later."

Dear Everyone:

I use Firefox (V11.0) on a Mac OS X (V10.6.8). I have a persistent problem with Youtube. When I view a video, I may get the message: "An error occurred. Please try again later".

The frequency of this problem varies from day to day. Sometimes, it happens to almost every video, and sometimes, it rarely happens; sometimes, "reloading" it once or twice, the video begins to play, and sometimes, it never plays no matter how many times I reload it.

I also have Safari (V5.1.4) on my machine, and it does not have the above problem.

Could you let me know how to resolve the problem with Firefox?

Thank you! qquito

EVERY time I try to access my e-mail through Firefox I instantly get this message: "Your session has expired. Please log in again". My provider is Time/Warner, and my internet access is working fine. Firefox is also working well except for this e-mail issue; I can access my stored bookmarks, etc., no problem. I can even access my Time Warner e-mail through another browser (Safari), so I know there is currently nothing wrong with the Time/Warner site's built-in e-mail engine. I have already tried reinstalling Firefox, including several different versions, to no avail. I've also tried "resetting" per your troubleshooting instructions, and restarting in Safe Mode. No success. This issue began suddenly a couple days ago—no warning. To my knowledge I have received no viruses or malware in recent months. Tech Support at Time/Warner tells me other customers are having this same problem lately. Suggestions? Thanks, Jeff

Given that v. 47.0.1 is the last one to be supported on 10.6.8, the answer given here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-osx#firefox:mac:fx45

doesn't make it clear whether if it is preferable, IN TERMS OF BEST POSSIBLE FUNCTIONALITY (not necessarily security), to use v. 48 and later ones, or v. 45.x.x.ESR until it runs out in 2017.

This in particular: "Note: Some Firefox features might not be available on ESR." has caught my attention. Is there a way to know which are those features that are not available?

Thanks,

Over the weekend, Yahoo has somehow been made my default homepage. When I go to Preferences and change it to my desired homepage, it only works for the next launch - then it reverts back to Yahoo. So I uninstalled Firefox and downloaded a new copy. Same thing, so apparently it's a moderation you have made to your browser.

I do not like this. If you don't tell me how to permanently remove Yahoo as my default page, and allow me to PERMANENTLY decide for myself what my default homepage is, I will stop using Firefox altogether, even if it until now has been my favorite browser.

I am on an iMac running OS X 10.6.8

I have my browser set to restore the previous session when I open Firefox, and new tabs to open blank. With these settings, I used to be able to open new windows and have my homepage load, while keeping the behaviors previously mentioned intact, but when I open a new window now, I get a blank page.

Is there any way to restore the previous behavior, or are all tabs now seen as the same now, whether they're opened as part of new windows or existing windows?

Why doesn't the esc key work the way it works when I'm viewing videos in full screen mode?

When I open Firefox in a new tab, I would like to have it open to a page of my choice. Right now, it seems there is no way to change that, but previous versions had this feature, and I put my computer to "google.com" for example, so I could be ready to search, whenever I pressed "command-T" (for new tab.) Are we stuck on Yahoo, now, or whatever Firefox chooses for new tabs, or is there a way to change this?

Youtube is still working with Safari and Chrome but for some reason it stopped working with Firefox. This happened the night before it updated to Firefox 25. I thought the update was the issue but it's not. I've tried everything that I've read about to fix this issue. I've tried playing vids in safe mode, updated to the latest version of flash, disabled hardware acceleration, I've cleared all cookies and cache, I've reset firefox, I've deleted all my add-ons, I've deleted and re-installed firefox. Nothing is working. Anyone got a clue what to do?
