Firefox wont display search results on certain engines (Google, yahoo). IE works fine and Bing also displays

For the past 2 days, Firefox wont display search results on Google or Yahoo. Tried Bing it worked fine, tried Internet Explorer and it worked fine. All that gets displayed is a blank page, no errors or anything like that.

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Tried your advice with no avail. Also Bing stopped searching as well???? I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled with no resolution.

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
