How do I disable the plugin check at Firefox startup?

Starting in the last day or two, every time I start Firefox, in addition to my homepage, I get a nuisance tab that is checking my plugins. I need to disable this stupid function or I will have to discontinue using Mozilla Firefox after 20 years as a faithful Mozilla user. I am happy with, and have no intentions of upgrading, my version of Firefox (3.6.17). I also have no intentions of upgrading my Flash plugin as newer versions are incompatible with an online activity in which I engage.

I have followed instructions in the user forum for changing the status of plugins.update.notifyUser from true to false in "about:config", but it apparently resets itself to true. None of the user forum suggestions correct this problem. If this unwanted, stupid tab cannot be disabled, I guess I will have to abandon Mozilla, both for Firefox and Thunderbird, and pursue options that do not force unwanted content on the user.

In addition, it seems impossible to actually speak to anyone at Mozilla about the problem. So hopefully someone will answer this question with a solution to the problem.

Is there anyway to disable the 'PluginCheck' website on firefox? It automatically opens up every time I open firefox. My home page also opens up as a separate tab so it's not the fact that my home page was changed (I also made sure in the settings). All my plugins are up to date so it's not that as well. It's extremely annoying. Help would greatly be appreciated.

Firefox sometimes loses all my previous tabs even though I have configured it to restore them and it also loses my preferred search engine (google) in favour of babylon

I like to have a number of tabs open each time I use Firefox and have configured it accordingly. I have also configured the toolbar to use Google.

From time to time Firefox terminates abnormally (e.g. if the PC crashes) and then I lose all my tabs plus the toolbar has an extra line to use babylon search.

Is it possible for me to save information about all of my tabs in a backup file of my choosing so that I can restore the settings manually? What file does it have to be copied into to restore?

The babylon problem is less pressing as it is easy to lose that line - but it is still annoying.

How to get Coupons.com printer software to work with Firefox 3.6.17 on my Mac-Dual 2 GHz IBM Processors IB PowerPc G5 OSX Tiger 10.4.11; ; I've tried many things w/o sucess per coupons.com tech support; Safari 4.1.3 works-Firefox 3.6.17 doesn't work???

I have tried the following suggestions below, including trying to make sure there is no third party software that might cause problems etc., w/o sucess per the coupons.com tech support email below that I received from them on 4-22-2011. Any help-advice-insight on this MacOSX Firefox Coupon-Extreme Coupon Printing Software problem break through would greatly be appreciated by me and I am sure many others in this situation; Thanks very much-God Bless Always-Godspeed Ahead!!!

Dear valued customer,

We are sorry you had trouble installing our coupon printing software. An installation issue occurs when you have successfully completed the installation, but our server is unable to communicate with your Coupon Printer. You might be running third-party software that is blocking communication with our servers, or disabling the browser plugin, or both. When this happens our site cannot detect your installation and you are prompted to download the installer every time you try to print coupons. To diagnose and fix this problem, check these possibilities...

For Mac OS X:

1) Have your browser plugins been disabled?

Check to see that your Coupons, Inc browser plug-in is enabled.

In Safari, click the Safari menu and select "Preferences". Under the "Security" icon, make sure "Enable plug-ins" is checked.

In Firefox, click "Tools" and select "Add-ons". Under the "Plugins" category, make sure "Coupons, Inc. Plugin" is enabled. If it has been disabled, you will be prompted to install continuously until it is.

- To test your printing ability (without hitting print limits on offers you want), visit: http://b.coupons.com/z.asp

2) If your browser plugins were already enabled, then try doing a fresh install of the Coupon Printer.

First uninstall the Coupon Printer by opening the Applications folder in your Macintosh HD. Locate the "Coupons" folder and run the uninstaller within. Once the uninstaller has completed, re-download the installer from the link provided below and run the installation again.

- To re-download the Coupon Printer installer, visit: http://help.coupons.com and click on "Help Me Install"

3) Is this a browser-specific issue?

If neither of the above possibilities fixes the issue in your current browser, try using an alternative web browser. The Coupon Printer is compatible with Firefox and Safari on Mac; however, an environment-specific issue may cause one of these to stop working on your machine. If your problem is occurring on Firefox, then try printing from Safari.

Please address the possibilities described above and let us know if you were able to identify and solve the issue.

Thank you,

Technical Services Coupons.com Incorporated

Hello, pop up ads coming up on my mac -

For the first time in 4 years, My mac is getting ads (looking like mac windows) for 'anti'malware' and ads (looking like mac) saying that I have viruses and to download to erase them. I have seen this twice this week. It is NOT from mac protection (although it looks like your computer and HD). This is happening in firefox - what can I do to block this??? (i already have blocked suspicious sites, etc)?

I called Mac - they said this is malicious software and has been happening in the last 2 weeks - to not download anything (which I hadn't) and that they ask for a credit card number and download possible viruses.

I changed something in my system preferences in safari - but use firefox usually - is there anything I can do in safari to not get these??

It started couple of months ago. In the beginning it crashed only on some Youtube channels. Like if I clicked o a video that was on a proper channel like "BBC", the page loaded but in the middle it suddenly crashed with the error "Firefox has encountered a problem and needs to close". Then when I use to restart firefox it would say that it probably happened because of a new tab. Now I am fed up. The problem has grown from certain youtube channels now to Yahoo mail, some other news websites today even Facebook! It logs me in to Fb but if I open a Fb page in a new tab it crashes. Now I even can't use Fb. I don't know whats wrong. I've tried the Firefox help and got my Crash Signature and now am posting the most recent one along with this Q. Crash Signature: hang | mozilla::plugins::PPluginInstanceParent::CallPBrowserStreamConstructor(mozilla::plugins::PBrowserStreamParent*, nsCString const&, unsigned int const&, unsigned int const&, mozilla::plugins::PStreamNotifyParent*, nsCString const&, nsCString const...

My computer running XP crashed, so I bought a new one (Win 7). Not a big deal, because I keep my data in an outboard drive and backup regularly.

I want to restore my Firefox bookmarks, which ought to be somewhere in my backup sets. Problem is, I don't know what to look for.

I've found a couple of files named Bookmarks.html, but when I look at them they contain only the basic bookmarks contained in a fresh Firefox installation.

I know my bookmarks are somewhere in my backup sets, but where?

What filenames do I need to look for?

Thanks!

I have changed the homepage to www/startingpage.com several times, and every time Firefox changes it back to www.searchqu.com/405. These are not the same web pages. Maybe I should get rid of the Web Search bar that is occupying the right hand side of the tool bar, and maybe the problem would cease. How can I get rid of that Web Search? How can I stop Firefox from changing my home page?
