How do I disable the "Text Enhance" affiliate platform that is present on all my web surfing

When I use the Firefox browser to surf the web, on nearly every web page I visit an invasive advertising platform creates anchor links on the web pages (anchor keywords with two hyperlinks under the anchor word) which when clicked takes the viewer to an advertisement. Most of the links seem to be part of an advertising platform owned by "Text Enhance," which I have contacted to complain about. They sort of played dumb. I said I thought it was the result of some malware from which they were the sole beneficiary and they assured me they didn't instigate it. I went to the Warrior Forum and some members suggested it sounded like it came from one of your extensions or plugins. My security and technology consultant scrubbed my computer and they deleted some of your extensions and plugins and the problem went away. But two weeks later, it's back and it's pervasive. Even words in my online banking accounts are showing these text links.

Aside from security concerns, my biggest fear is that they are stealing traffic from the websites I publish--websites where I'm trying to sell either my own or affiliate products. And that upsets me greatly.

I'm sure I'm not the only web user experiencing this problem. If other web publishers are also getting their traffic stolen and directed to a competing site, you can bet that there will be a class action lawsuit on the horizon for Mozilla. So I suggest you get to the bottom of this situation and rectify it, because a lawsuit will be the inevitable result.

I don't mean to alarm you because I use Firefox as my primary browser. However, I checked IE and Chrome and Chrome is exhibiting the same situation. So I'm not really sure how this is happening, and that's why I'm contacting you about it.

Please let me know if you know how to de-activate this invasive pest.

'Save Image As' keeps changing the location it's saving the file. As I'm going through various pages and saving certain images, I notice that sometimes it saves where I'm expecting it to, (the location I most recently selected while saving an image), but very often, in the same session (meaning I haven't closed and restarted FF), it decides to change the location to a directory I've used earlier, instead of where it just saved the previous file.

I thought it might be a scenario something like, I open tabs 1 - 5, save images to location A. Then I save a file to location B, open up pages 6 - 10, save a file to location A again. At this point I expect that my files will default to location A, but maybe pages 6 - 10 now have location B associated with them and they will default there instead. I just tested that and that's not it.

It's also not extension (ie .jpg, .gif) that forces the change of location. I can't figure out what triggers it.

Does anyone know if there is another about:config setting that we can change, (which the next FF upgrade in 5 minutes will undoubtedly override) to restore proper behavior?

This behavior started with the upgrade to FF 7.

During normal usage Firefox will suddenly stop loading all pages in all tabs/windows. Every currently loading page remains blank, with the usual 'Connecting to ____' message. Any new tabs or windows opened, or any new page requests, get stuck in the same loop. The program itself does not hang and, other than failing to load pages, performs normally. No change in behaviour with all add-ons disabled. Seems to happen with any website, but seems to happen more often on pages with any elements that take excessively long to load. Only current solution is to close program and restart.

This is not a router/connectivity issue, IE and other programs can connect fine while the issue is occurring. Full system virus scan came up empty (Sophos/Ad-Aware/WinDefender). I believe I first starting having the problem with FF6, feels like it has become more frequent with FF7.

When I was using Firefox 3.x, I configured it to clear the list of downloaded files at exit. Now, I've "upgraded" to Firefox 7.0.1 and it's stopped doing it. Not only that, there doesn't seem to be a way to get that functionality back. Is there some setting I've missed, or have the Firefox devs decided that users don't need/want to have Firefox do this any more?

I have just installed Firefox 7 on my new iMac that is running on Lion OS 10.7.2 and found that all hover states (rollovers) do not work here at all, i dun get dropdown menus or css colour change on any of my own websites or on other websites. I did move some of my profile files from the old iMac into the new one and everything else works fine. it also works on my old iMac which is running on Snow Leopard OS. but i have notice that its really slow on my Snow Leopard iMac and often just hangs on random pages for no reason.

Can someone tell me what i should do? I have tried moving the whole profile folder for the old iMac, when that did work, i started a new profile and move the recommended files only as shown on here http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox. and it still doesn't work. Help please.

At home, this is not an issue. I don't know why it's different here at work--same installation, same settings (as far as I can tell). Windows Vista Firefox 7.0.1 Status-4-Evar installed to turn add-on bar into a status bar

I have a NoScript add-on icon in the corner, which works fine. If I add a GreaseMonkey icon from the Customize menu, the "Icon and Text" appears for that icon, like the Icon and Text from the browser controls (Home, stop, etc). Other add-on icons also show Icon and Text (S4E, for instance). NoScript is the only one I've found so far which collapses down to just an Icon.

This leads to the status (add-on) bar having a much larger height than I like. Essentially what I want is for only the Icon to appear in the Status bar (Add-on toolbar), while keeping Icons and Text in the Browser controls. My current workaround is simply removing the other add-on icons from the status (add-on) toolbar, but that takes away the ease of toggling and setting options.

Please tell me if I can provide you with anything else, and thanks for your help.

Edit: I've got some screenshots to show what I mean. desired behavior problem when icon is added

After upgrade to FF7.0.1 (on Win7 Pro-64) I sometimes see a strange behaviour: while downloading a couple of files to the same folder, FF does occasionally change to another download folder - without request. I.e. I save files to folder A, suddenly FF offers me folder B. After choosing back to A, a couple of files later FF offers folder G, and so on. While working 10 - 12 hours with my PC, this happens once or twice a day. It doesn't depend on the file's format, happens with docs, videos, pics, pdfs, zips and other formats.

I have Firefox 7 and I'm using it in my netbook. The screen is very small so I want to have as less UI as possible. I'd like to know if it's possible to remove or disable the vertical scrbollbar. Thanks

There isn't really too much more to say. The screen resolution is 1024 x 600. And most of the sites don't fit, so even 20 px more would be great.

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 7, I've experienced an intermittent issue where, upon trying to load a site, the status bar says "Connecting...", and sits there without loading anything for several minutes. This typically happens after several minutes of normal use. During this time, Firefox is unable to connect to any site. It is also unable to check for updates. There are no error messages; it simply displays the "spinning wheel" icon and provides no further feedback.

Closing the tab where the problem initially occurred doesn't help, but completely closing down and restarting Firefox does. However, the problem typically reoccurs after several minutes of normal use following a restart.

No other application is affected. Internet Explorer, MSN Live Messenger, Thunderbird, and other network applications continue to operate normally during the period that Firefox is unable to load sites.

I do not believe that it's a firewall issue. The problem occurs even when all firewall software - including the built-in Windows Firewall - has been disabled.

Additionally, if I just let Firefox "spin" for several minutes, the problem abruptly clears up on its own, and the site I'd originally requested loads normally. As with a restart, when the problem has cleared up in this fashion, it typically reoccurs after several minutes of normal use.

I'm wondering what you guys are playing at, why the need to update so often? this is crazy. only 11 months ago, we were in version 3, now we are in version 7?? what is going on? the software is not that different, to warrant a major version update. I'm merely expressing my shock here at how you have changed it, but on to a more serious concern. that is add-ons. it seems to me that by making a major release, you are making it very difficult for the add-on makers. I have noticed that there is becoming less useful add-ons for firefox and the good ones are getting abandoned because they can't keep up. don't you think you should slow it down a notch? sure, I think development goes on at a normal rate, but see if you can find a way to impliment important security updates without messing up all the add-on codes? and without making a major version update! we went from 6 to 7 and what changed in terms of functionality? I honestly don't know because i saw no real big difference.
