Crime Watch which puts ads in Firefox seems to have installed itself somewhere, it does not show up in my programmes and I have used a recommended removal but it is still showing ads. Even turning off add ons doesn't stop it. The last suggestion of the list of ways to get rid of it was to uninstall firefox and reinstall, but of course the site just tells me firefox is up to date when I try to download it and I need to download it before taking it off. The recommendations were to use Adwcleaner, then Malawarebytes and then HitmanPro. Can you help me please Margaret/gencat

How can I override server mime types, to always get mp3/rar/sid/bin files directly to the 'where do you want to save this file' dialog?

I used to be able to click MP3 files, way back when, and Firefox would ask where I wanted to save them. Nowadays it opens a new tab with a flash player. Clicking on 'unknown' files, like .sid, .prg, .zip, .rar pops up 'This is a BIN file. [Cancel] [Save]'. It does not give me a checkbox for 'always do this'. I would like the option to edit so that some file types, such as PDF, regardless of mimetype, always get opened in a new tab if clicked. Also some file types, based on extension, always go directly to 'Where do you want to save the file?' dialog box, regardless if there's a builtin player or viewer or not. In my Firefox (41.0.1 Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32-bit) I never get the 'do this for these files always' choice anymore. Googling led me to delete my mimeTypes.rdf file, and since then even 'well known' file extensions, like .zip, are treated as BIN files and I get the Cancel-or-Save box for those, too - again without the choice to 'always save BIN files'.

I have Firefox set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time" on startup. Since upgrading to Firefox 41, I've noticed that it doesn't always remember where I've scrolled to in all of the tabs, which it did perfectly before. Typically not every single tab is affected, but usually a decent portion are. Firefox 41.0.1 did not fix the issue.

Since I've updated, Firefox crashes on startup. I've followed all the different scenarios like re-installing, deleting certain files etc. but still end up with Firefox crashing. It does in fact run in Safe Mode and I took that opportunity to turn off all my add-ons. Didn't help. My guess is that Firefox is allergic to something on my laptop.

I have been running firefox on 'old' format when suddenly it updated (without my prompting) to 41.0.1. I had been listening to music on www.live365.com/genres/classical and suddenly there was no audio. I shut down firefox, my computer and restarted the computer again. No audio at www.live365.com. I have audio with other formats. Went into 'block' and un-blocked all ads. Still no music coming thru from this station. What's up? Does new format 41.0.1 block audio?

So I have to go back to Chrome, where it works just fine.

I have tried all of the fixes in past threads, but FF new update 41 refuses to open new tabs in Google.ca. I have been to about:config and through newtab, adjusted columns and rows to 1 each, tried about:home for the URL, as well as the full URL for Google.ca. I am not using Chrome. No add-ons, no extensions, no profile.js file, no recent programs added without my knowledge. My new tabs come up with Google.ca as a thumbnail, so I have to click on it. This is madness! Google is shooting itself in the foot. Can anyone help me solve this, please?! Thank you.

Starting about two weeks ago, when I try to access www.steepandcheap.com/current-steal with the current version of Firefox on Windows 10, I cannot. It's not that I get an error message, it's just as though the page no longer exists, and I get redirected to the main site. I tried it in safe mode, and the same thing happens. This just started right now on El Capitan, which I have been using since yesterday. This page has been in a tab constantly for years with no problems. Also, it still works in Chrome, so I know it's still there. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have found these instructions: In case you need more of a step-by-step:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and enter your preferred page:

   Page thumbnails (default) => about:newtab
   Blank tab => about:blank
   Built-in Firefox home page => about:home
   Any other page => full URL to the page 

Press Ctrl+t to open a new tab and verify that it worked.

 However as per the attached screen shot, I do not have a preference "browser.newtab.url"
