Really appreciate all the hard work creating updates but every time I update I lose my about:config settings, especially the browser.tab ones that I rely on. Specifically I use non-default settings on InsertRelatedAfterCurrent and all the warning ones. (I never want to be warned). I also use the Tabs on Bottom plugin which also has to be reinstalled after major updates. I run Firefox on at least 4 separate machines so it is a rather huge headache to have to reconfigure after each update. Is there a way to tell Firefox to update but don't change my settings back to defaults?

Thanks for a great browser.

Mozilla firefox help database instructed us to access option-sync tab as follow to reset password 1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose Options. 2. On the Sync tab, click Sign in to open the Sign in page. 3. On the Sign in page, click Forgot password? Firefox will send you a reset email. 4. Follow the instructions in your reset email to change your password.

When I search I get a Bing page with the search results (for example try "wrecking crew"), but when I click on the first result (wreckingcrew.tv), FF takes me to the correct page for a second and then that page disappears and I am on a Yahoo search page. When I click on the top entry, which is wreckingcrew.tv, I get a new tab which is once again a Yahoo search page, now labelled "DNS Solution Yahoo Error Handler". Also the search term has been changed to "wrecking crew bio images". This new page has lots of other links for wrecking crew, but no longer has a direct link to the correct website. This just started happening today (March 24) on my MacBook Air since I started running 36.0.4. I changed the home page to Bing and removed Yahoo from the search engine list but no help. Some other sites do not have this behavior. The other thing is sometimes when this happens, the default FF search engine gets changed to Yahoo even though I have explicitly REMOVED Yahoo from the list of search engines.

This is driving me NUTS! There is no problem in Safari, but I hate Safari.

First let me thank anyone who can help me solve this problem.

Last night I upgraded to Firefox 36.0.4, updated my flash to Adobe Flash 17 NPAPI, and shockwave to Adobe Shockwave Player 12.1

The system automatically installs a plugin called Shockwave for Director.

My system crashes anytime there is any Flash content on the screen from any page in Firefox (regular and safe mode), and I get the message

"Shockwave Flash may be busy or have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete."

There is no issue with Chrome, I am about to test IE.

Does anyone think unstalling Firefox, Adobe Flash, and Adobe Shockwave, then re-installng all three problems will help?

Also, I don't know if this is important, but I am not able to get to the Adobe Flash settings page because when I right click just on Flash Motion, the system freezes.

I appreciate the help very much.

Dear Mozilla community,

I have just finished creating information website www.darimulutkemulut.com (DMM) which provides opportunity to post short classified ads free of charge. The site is mainly focused on Indonesia visitors, but can be used by everyone.

What should be done so that the website become visible to others in Mozilla search engine results? At the moment Mozilla search doesn't provide any search results for my site. The only opportunity to open the site - if to put its name in the address bar. But normally people just use search engine.

Please advise, thank you

Regards Alex

I've tried repeatedly going to the forums at texags.com as I have in the past but keep getting the following message-

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Other people on the forum use firefox without problems and I have done so in the past. I'm trying to switch back from Chrome but this is a huge block for me. I have checked for updates and cleared the history and cache as suggested in the FAQs. ANy advice?

Hello, When I open a new tab on firefox, it is redirecting to "homepage-web.com/?s=hp&m=tab"... which my McAfee SiteAdvisor is flagging as a "suspcious site". I've searched on the firefox help forums and looked at my add ons to see if there was anything dodgy in there... all I have are the one's I installed (i think): 1 click YouTube Video downloader 2.3.8 (I've had this over a month before this tab issue started).

Yesterday, I had to reinstall Firefox after accidentally downloading a hijacker (Binkiland.) In order to clear it, I had to uninstall then re-install Firefox. The problem now is that with Adblock Plus turned on, ALL my visuals disappear. I can see only text. (I was also using AdNauseam, piggy-backing on Adblock Plus, before the re-install.)

I noted an Alert telling me AdNauseam would not work without first having AdBlock Plus operating. But in order to see anything at all, I was forced to disable AdBlock Plus. This was never a problem, previously. I have confirmed that the version of Firefox I'm using is the latest edition. I'd be very glad if you can fix this! Thank you.
