How can I get WebAdvisor to work for a Google search in Windows 7?

On both my Windows 10 machine and my Windows 7 machine, I am using Firefox Quantum 62.0.2 and the information at Tools>Add-on>Extensions says that McAfee WebAdvisor 6.0.0.136 is enabled.

I get the McAfee WebAdvisor green icons to show up for a Google search on my Windows 10 machine. However, I cannot get them to show up for a Google search on my Windows 7 machine.

Why do I get the green icons in a Firefox Google search on the Windows 10 machine, but I do not get them on the same search on the Windows 7 machine??? Google is a default search engine for Firefox on both machines.

I might add that I get the green icons for a Bing search on both the Windows 7 and the Windows 10 machine. Bing is also a default search engine on both machines. But, only Windows 10, and not Windows 7, will show the green icons in a Google search. This is strange!! What can I do to get them to show up in the Firefox browser Google search on Windows 7??

I read a post there dated 9/21/2018 that said Firefox 62 doesn’t support WebAdvisor. But that doesn’t seem to be true, 1) McAfee WebAdvisor is listed as an add-on; 2) I get the green icons when I do a Bing Search on my Windows 7, and I get the green icons when I do a Bing search AND a Google search on my Windows 10. It’s only a Google search on Windows 7 that does not produce them. What can I do to get them to show up for a Google search in Windows 7?

Firefox 63.0 (64-bit Windows 7) won't complete Restart after Update

I'm posting this from my XP machine since I don't want to do anything more on my Windows 7 laptop (where the issue exists) that might cause me untold grief. I had seen the message to "Restart Firefox to Update" for several days but was busy doing 'stuff' so I held off. Was also getting messages that Adobe Acrobat Reader had been updated successfully and that I should restart for the update to take effect. Finally, since I wanted to replace my AVG Free AV with ZoneAlarm Internet Security, I decided it was time to close all my active programs, including Firefox, remove AVG Free AV, download and install ZoneAlarm Internet Security and then shut down my laptop in order to install any Windows 7 updates. In order to shut down Firefox while maintaining all my Windows and Tabs, I typically just pull-down the Menu and select 'Exit'. When I open Firefox again, I select 'Restore previous session", my Windows all come up and my tabs are all there and I'm off to the races! However, when I tried that this time, I received a warning that I had 8 Windows open and 441??? tabs (I have a lot but it is nowhere near that number [150 maybe]) in use and they would all be closed if I chose to exit. Since this is my way of remembering all of the things that I am working on at any given time, I DEFINITELY DIDN'T WANT TO DO THAT!! So, the only choice I had seemed to be to click on the "Restart Firefox to Update" button in the "Help" --> "About Firefox" dialog box. However, I did that about 6 hours ago and the little blue 'circle' just keeps 'spinning' and the hard drive access light flashes periodically (more so, within the first 30 minutes or so after clicking on the 'Restart' button) but the 'Restart' has not completed. I guess I will have to abort the update somehow but I don't want to do that part way through a 'Restart' and I DEFINITELY DON'T WANT TO LOSE MY OPEN TABS!!! What should I do to be able to get back to productive work using Firefox?!

browser search hijack

Current situation: My Firefox brower search default is Google. But it has settled into a pattern of being is hijacked to a site named primeinfospot.com. Initially, the search redirection was to several different sites, but now it is just one site. This might be a result of my attempts to remove the hijacker. Chrome and Safari browsers are not hijacked.

Cause: Attempting to get a better corded connection between my Galaxy and MacBook, I downloaded a file named Android.zip from http://d-h.st/nl5l#!/ This included an install of ADB and Fastbooks. This led to an attempted auto-download of Flash, which I rejected. My browser search then was hijacked first to a number of different sites: readysoft, ikolag, ncontentdelivery, everydayconsumers, primeinfospot, search-switch.

Attempts to remove: Looked through plug-ins and extensions in Firefox, but couldn't find anything that looked like the hijacker. Uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox. Scanned with Malwarebytes (report= clear), Went to Mac hard drive > Applications > Library and uninstalled any files installed on Ocotber 24th (when the problem started).

Only in FIREFOX, my TITTER safety settings are changed & locked automatically. If I try to change the settings as I desire, I may not be able to do it as it can NOT be changed. I am using FIREFOX for years. I am only encountering this problem recently after I installed a fresh version of FIREFOX.

I have just been forced to use Google Chrome instead of FIREFOX just for this problem. I can NOT change * uncheck either: -Hide sensitive content -Remove blocked and muted accounts Please see the photo & inform me if I could correct this problem so I can use FIREFOX back again. In previous version or via CHROME, I can change these 2 setting as I want, but not the most current version of FIREFOX

Hi !

Suddenly I can't download any smaller file on firefox. It started to happen probably from last firefox update. Every file is - failed. Only files that i can download are bigger files (+100mb) but these files are also interrupted so you must always "retry" them. Smaller files simply fail to download.

I tried many things from troubleshooting tutorial but nothing works. I have many tabs, sessions, bookmarks etc that I don't want to disappear so I don't want to delete profile.

Thanks

Chugging along just fine as usual, in the early part of today(using Firefox several times). With Firefox closed, I went to open it and it took ages to open fully. When it did open, the familiar toolbars were there, including my Bookmarks toolbar. The Bookmarks toolbar is showing the icons of sites that I have put there, and it is showing my self-created folders on it (containing various website shortcuts etc). The only difference is that the folders are grey instead of yellow. However, nothing is actually HAPPENING. No matter what I click on, I am not reaching any website whatsoever. I cannot actually go anywhere at all with Firefox. My internet connection is working just fine. I can open email software and I can open (and use) Internet Explorer. Why has my Firefox just stopped functioning on my Windows 7 PC? It is Firefox Quantum ESR 60.2.0esr. I am typing this support request on my Windows 10 laptop where Firefox Quantum 62.0 is working ok!

open itself as the first page when I open Firefox. (And no it hasn't made itself my automatic home page)

After I closed my browser yesterday, every time I reopened it, it did not open this page, but again this morning upon my first time opening the browser, it opened this page.

Trouble is, I cannot seem to find a way in Firefox to block this page from opening anymore. Is there really no way in Firefox to block a specific page from opening?

Additionally, how is it opening this? I use Norton safe web and it doesn't recognize this page as a phishing site. Not sure where I picked it up but I do a lot of online research for work.

Thanks Tracy

Hello- ever since computer was updated to Firefox 60.2.0 esr, I have not been able to find but about 5-total add-ons and extensions. I had about 15- or so before updating Firefox. Where would I find them?

 I just received a message from my Avast Free Anti-Virus that said I should remove a bad reputation add-on I never heard of & I surely could not find it using the 4- horizontal bars at the top right of the Browser.  

Thanks!
