I let my kid play around with the computer, now when I click a tab it shows "(*)", the mouse wheel zooms in and out , and not scrol. I don't know how to fix it.

I let the kid play with the computer. Now when I click a tab it shows (*) rather than commute to the tab, the mouse wheel zooms rather than scroll, and all the links open a new window. How can I reset the settings, at least to the default ones? Thanks.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
