firefox will not work with google
Hi, When I open up Firefox it goes immediately to Google, with "Search" selected in the toolbar. For the past few days, it is not working properly. If I write in a name, Joe Bloggs for example, and click search, nothing comes up. It may say there are "31,000" results, but none appear. If I set the search for "Images" on the toolbar and click search, a lot of pictures of Joe Bloggs will appear for a split second, but then it will revert to the same for Search, saying simply the number of results, but nothing shows on screen. This also happens if I select "News" from the toolbar. This problem does not occur if I use Internet Explorer or Chrome to get to Google. Does anybody have an idea what is happening, and how to solve it?
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.
