I accidentally downloaded Babylon unknown to what a truly horrible search engine this is! I have tried to get rid of it, by un-installing, I did manage to get rid of the search engine to the right of the URL bar bu doing the whole plug-in thing. I tried what everyone said about doing the about:config thing, and when I search keyword.URL, that is blank, but I changed it to google anyways, then I searched Babylon and modifed, and reset everything marked with Babylon. However, when I close out Firefox and re-start, my homepage STILL goes to babylon even after I changed all those setting and then also set google as my homepage in the options and add-ons tab. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Was infested with Babylon so I was really ticked off wrote a nasty note to the makers of this software.. They sent me this response.. And yes I did try a number of things before I did the following

For Firefox: Write in the adress line "about:config" and enter. Confirm the message. Look for "Babylon". Right-click the entries and click "Reset".

Nothing worked till I did this.. I went tru and reset every item in the list.. and now no longer have to deal with it redirecting me. I did try removing the program from the program list, I did remove all from my registry, I did remove from my search engine list.. nothing worked until I got this information from the manufacturer of this software with a giant apology

Thank you for taking the time to write us.

Please accept my apology for any inconvenience.

In order to uninstall Babylon and all its features completely, follow the 4 steps below : 1) Uninstall Babylon Software: http://support.babylon.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/177/0/uninstall-babylon-software

2) Change Babylon Home Page (Internet Explorer \ Firefox \ Google Chrome): http://support.babylon.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/175/0/change-babylon-home-page

3) Remove Babylon search provider http://support.babylon.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/174/0/change--babylon-search-engine


4) Tab issue: In case you open a new tab, and Babylon Search still appears, please do the following:

For Internet Explorer: Open your Internet Explorer browser, click on "Tools", then "Internet Options" and in the section "Tabs" click on "Settings". It will open a new window, on the option "When a new tab is opened, open:" in the drop-down menu please choose "Your first homepage". Then click OK, Apply and OK.

I have some demo pages for a plugin on github. Oddly, I can't get the favicon to show up in Firefox (try the simple demo page). They show up in webkit browsers and IE without any problems. The effected pages are "Main", "Simple", "Expand", "Video" and "FX".

Even more strange is that only one demo page ("CSS3") shows the favicon on the tab and when saved as a bookmark, but none of the other pages will.

At least once a day on my work PC Desktop I will type in Yahoo.com or Amazon.com or any other valid popular website and all of a sudden I get the "Security Exception" error message and when I select to confirm it I then get:

"Invalid URL The requested URL "/", is invalid.

Reference #9.a2fc54b8.1345130184.5cbbba6 "

At that point I cannot access that website at all. Then I have to clear all history and restart my computer, at least once a day and hope it works. I've scanned the support forum and I have done everything they suggest: disabled all add-ons (not that I even have any), reset Firefox, restart in safe-mode. Nothing works, it's very frustrating. It completely interrupts my workday. HELP!!

The way this got in (though gen crawler isn't enabled) was media finder and I've already uninstalled it and everything that it came with. Please help because it's still appearing.

Hi. I'm using Firefox 14.0.1, and recently developed an issue that is extremely frustrating. Two particular websites which I visit often are behaving irregularly. In the first case, on Facebook, when I login and my main page loads, the icons in the top left (friends, messages, and notifications) are not "clickable," that is to say that clicking on them no longer brings up the windowpane that corresponds with them. On another website, Battlelog.com, certain images do not load and instead are replaced with oversized text. I have tried clearing my cache and history in Firefox, turning on and off extensions one by one, running in safe mode, etc. but none of these solutions have helped.

I finally tried running Firefox in private browsing mode. These websites now work perfectly. I cannot explain it, as the URLs for each are identical. If there is anyone who could offer advice on settings or changes I could make so that Firefox will work properly with these sites in default browsing mode, it would be most greatly appreciated.

I am using Firefox 14. I have a lot of bookmark files I want to sort into the correct folders. I select All Bookmarks from the Bookmark drop down and I get a separate window with my bookmark folders displayed but I don't get the bookmark files I want to put in the folders. Can someone tell me how to get them. I've been using Firefox bookmarks for a lot of Firefox versions and it seems to me the more versions we advance to the more confusing Bookmarks become. In earlier versions it was easy to manage them.

There are many times when i want to go back to an article I read, but I don't know if it was three weeks or three months ago. I may remember the website, but I don't remember the specific URL.

There must be some way I can search my entire history, to find the interview on the Corbert Report that I'm looking for, but I can't find it.

I don't see any add-on to help, either.

Is there something already in Firefox I can use, or is there an add-on I can download to do a boolean search of the Title, the URL, with date-range options?

Thanks in advance.

This issue I have been dealing with for about 2 months. I have read the questions and comments regarding this problem with other users, and I think perhaps I need to create a new Firefox profile. My computer knowledge is very limited but I can follow instructions fairly well. I just wonder if I will know what to do once I have clicked the Start>Run, then type in (fiefox.exe -P once the menu drops down. I don,t know what fiefox version I have, and I don,t recall creating a new profile when I swithced to the firefox browser. I do know my OS is Windows XP and I have Yahoo as my home page (that has been my email program for 5 years). I noticed Vyper has done a lot of research on this particular problem. I believe my add-ons are all up-dated and I have 2 disabled. I just don,t know what to type if firefox ask me if I want to disable this or that once I start the process of creating a new profile. Is there any help for me? I loved Firexox when I first sarted using the browser, but now it is a pain, It stalls about every 12 minuets. Thank you so much, Jeanette Gonzales
