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

The dreaded "an error occurred" message shows on *every* YouTube video

For the past ... I really don't know how long now, most of the time I just gave up, but I'm finally fed up with it ... YouTube has been displaying "An error occurred, please try again later" on any video I try to play; embedded or on YouTube, it doesn't matter.

Safe mode does not resolve the problem.

The only way I can get it to work is by (1) using a separate, clean Firefox profile (-no-remote -profile "x:\path\to\clean\profile"), (2) trying a different browser or (3) completely resetting Firefox (I manually backed up my main profile directory before doing this).

But: copy pasting the URL into a different profile or browser for every video is a pain in the arse and resetting Firefox is not an acceptable solution. I have a ton of customized extensions that would take hours to reconfigure. And, as I mentioned, safe mode (ie.: disabling the extensions) does not fix the problem.

Has anyone actually got to the root cause of this ridiculous error?

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?

Where's a 64-bit Firefox?

This question was probably asked before, but I guess it's important to keep asking so that the developers will realize that this is actually important.

I'm running a 64-bit Windows 7 for a few years now. I'm not sure if they even make 32-bit processors anymore. Any new PC you see advertised comes with Windows 8 64-bit. Both versions of Windows come with 64-bit IE. To be honest, the 32-bit IE is not only included, but is also default, but this is for the sake of backward compatibility. Opera is available in 64 bit, and so is Firefox, but only for Linux and Mac OS.

So where's the 64-bit Firefox for Windows? For years we've been hearing about plugins. Now, both Flash and Java are available in 64-bit. 64-bit Nightly works perfectly, I run it for years without any problem. Third-party builds also exist and work fine. So why not make an effort and promote the 64-bit Nightly higher up the production chain?

Sometimes we hear about "other priorities". But let's be honest here - what other priorities? I'm not sure why would I care about HTML5 - YouTube already works, and I don't see why should I care if it's in Flash or HTML5. Same about most other "cutting edge" features. I don't think I notice them. But I do notice that I have to run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit machine. Some people ask - what's the advantage of using 64-bit Firefox? I ask, why should I run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit machine? Just because it works? That's just not good enough.

So, enough with the excuses, just do it! That's what people are waiting for, not the "Firefox OS" (now why would I buy anything from a "proudly non-profit" company?)!

I got this message yesterday. I got this message on one of my other PCs quite a while back, and it was a date/time issue, but on this pc that is not the case my date and time are correct. Any help would be very appreciated.


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.


Technical Details

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Firefox used to remember my bank password, but it does not any longer. After downloading the update to version 23.0.1 today, the remember password feature appeared broken.

I tried many things and eventually got passwords working on other sites, but not my bank. I deleted the saved password from the password manager in an attempt to try and get the Remember Password prompt to show up again, but it didn't work. I checked in Exceptions and it's completely empty, so that's not it. I also tried using the bookmarklet for fixing autocomplete on sites that it's disabled and my bank doesn't appear to disable it.

I've spent an hour and a half researching this and trying everything I could but I am at a loss. This computers main user is an elderly man so having the bank remember the password is a MUST.

I always use Google as my firefox search engine. However i must have accidentally downloaded a file that has now set up search-gol as my search engine and i want to get rid of it. Info to do this strangely doesn't appear anywhere on google searches. Mozilla says to go into addons/extensions etc but the search engine isn't listed anywhere. I have also unistalled any programmes that i have recently downloaded but this search-gol think won't go. I am worried about uninstalling firefox and reinstalling it as i have about 500 favourites and i don't want to lose them and my current browsing session. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this annoying search engine rubbish? Thanks

Hi, I have recently noticed I have an unwanted addon called gophoto.it.

I have tried to remove the addon but am so far having no luck.

When on the addons page in firefox there is no option to remove, just to disable. I have tried restarting in safemode to remove it but am still unable to.

I tried to remove it manually, I searched about:config and have come up with one result, I have tried to find this in the directory under extensions and the corresponding file doesnt show up.

The preference name for the file is: extensions.a2ea36bf108774aaa882cff78f7d9d95cdfb1672d116a4eb48be044786bd1d3ddcom34068.34068.internaldb.Resources_resource_175513.value

If anyone has any ideas I would be really greatful! Thanks.

I recently upgraded to Firefox 24.0. I use Windows 7

It used to be that any time I clicked on a link to download anything, I would be given the chance to choose where I wanted to save whatever I was downloading. The item would also be saved in the download file or directory.

But now, when I click a link to download anything, it just automatically saves to the download directory without giving me the chance to save it somewhere else. So if I want the file somewhere else, I have to open the download directory and move it where to where I want it.

How do I set Firefox so it is like it was before, so that it gives me a choice of where I want to save a download before it starts downloading it? Thanks.
