Every time I run Firefox in addition to my homy page Firefox also loads welcome to Firefox tabs, a Thank you for Installing Yahoo toolbar tab and pop-up, and for the last week or so a tab for the Blur tracking blocker (which, incidentally, tells me you're tracking me). In addition to that, ever subsequent web page I load after firefox runs taxes forever - sometimes minutes to load. I usually have to click stop loading and reload in the address bat at least once.

For the particulars, this is Firefox 34 running on an HP Pavillion tower. I'm pretty sure the following should tell you the rest of what you need:

I have used the nifty little thing in firfox's about:config called keyword.URL to search for things on google's 'I'm feeling lucky' feature. Recently, instead of going to the usual search results, it takes me to this thing called 'Google custom search' which reminds me more of Bing than Google.. I hate Bing.. At the beginning when I first started using keyword.URL I got it to take me to the top result of a google search. After a while that stopped working and I had to click on it myself, which was fine, I guess. But now, it literally sucks ass with this custom search! I realize it's not a fault at your end but I still need help with it and I am lazy and I am desperate. PLEASE HELP ME FIX THIS!!!!!

My husband installed firefox on his computer, like I have done on my laptop (my son and daughter also), but on my husband's computer, the home page looks different than mine. I have the globe on mine with the search engine in the middle. My husband has some Tviza or something like that show up on his, and when he puts in say weather.com to open when he opens his browser, it never shows up. I am not sure what went wrong. His computer is a desk top from Dell. All of our laptops are Dell also. Thank you! Kelly

I'm setting up my Mac OS firewall, the most current version, to maximize my Firefox security.

I've enabled Stealth Mode and Automatic Updates with certifications.

But I'm wondering about what other stuff to block. I don't want to cripple myself with stuff like automatic updates to software, etc., but I don't want to leave a backdoor for anyone to come snooping around either.

Or should I get some other firewall software that gives me more control?

Opinions?

This relates to my Macbook Air (2010) running on OSX10.10.2.T Three days ago, I ok'd a Firefox refresh and when I did - my Yahoo Mail! account dropped all of its icons on the mail pages. There are programming symbols there and when I place the cursor over them, the function is defined and works but this is really slowing me down. Is this a Firefox issue or a Yahoo issue? I have been trying to get Yahoo help through their answer community but no luck there. I am at best an advanced novice - I do not program at all and primarily reolved my problems through help desks or community help.

I had the amazon logo on my homepage which gave me a direct link to their website. I have had many many problems with firefox. On one occasion I got a prompt to improve the situation by refreshing firefox. This I did as a result I lost the link to amazon on my home page. The refresh did nothing to alleviate the many many problems I am having with firefox. How do I get the link to amazon back?

How can I change the options on the start page? 10 out of 15 spaces show Firefox promotions or info, leaving only 5 for recent webpages. I really would like to rely on this to open recent pages, and I typically have far more than 5! and have little if any need for the continued promotions of other Firefox features. thank you!

I checked the boxes to remove browser history,cookies,cache and other things when the browser closes.However, for some reason Firefox doesn't delete cache completely when I close and reopen it.There is a privacy test at https://lucb1e.com/randomprojects/cookielesscookies/ that stores a tracking ETag code in cache and identifies you when you return.When I relaunch Firefox, the code is still in cache so the privacy test fails. The solution was to use an addon called "Empty Cache Button" and manually click the clear cache button. Is there any way to somehow "trigger" that addon to clear the cache automatically when the browser closes,starts or at a specific time interval ? I don't mind the performance impact of clearing the cache.Thank you.

EDIT: I've tested it on 2 different profiles.
