Hi,

When I try to go to www.google.com(from the address bar or a bookmark) or try to use the thing that's besides the address bar to llok something it just wont load, instead a message saying: "The connection has timed out. The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond." appears. Other web pages such as: youtube.com , mail.google.com , facebook.com , yahoo.com...work just fine. If I try google at other browsers (IE9), it wont work either. I've tried clearing the cache and cookies...ran ccleaner...nothing works; the only time it worked, for a while, was when i uninstalled Firefox tried to go to google.com, cleared the cache and cookies, and it worked, i thought it was fixed...but then I closed Firefox, after a while re-opened it and nothing. Also did a ping test, non responsive all 4 packages lost.

I use: Windows 7 Ultimate (updated) Firefox v. 20


Thank you :(

It might be a little gift left me after I uninstalled another toolbar which installed itself when I downloaded a media player. On most regular sites, unless they have good security, a new tab pops open whenever I click on a link or function. The tab has the name of the site I am on followed by trustedoffer.com. When I return to the page I was on, I can then click that link normally. I have been always closing these tabs before going back to the page. I have tried to find info about it, but have found nothing. I've tried blocking it, but it only works briefly. Avast doesn't seem to notice it either. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. My concern is that it might be putting me at risk since I have done some online shopping recently. That, and it takes longer to do everything. It is intrusive, and I can't imagine it doesn't serve more than to annoy.

Thank you for any assistance,

K. Higginbottom

I don't have any "out of the norm" add-ons...

I recently experienced Firefox continuously crashing whenever I try to attach a PDF to an e-mail in Yahoo (not a large file size - about 300kb). I checked my add-ons to see if there was an issue there, and noticed there was a message stating "Adobe Acrobat is known to be vulnerable and should be updated message", even though I thought I had already updated it.

I went ahead and re-downloaded anyhow... it successfully installs, and then I still get the same error message.

Furthermore, this issue was recently added on top of my Firefox already running slow and crashing... I often clear my cache and have tried running in safe-mode as well, although this doesn't allow me full capabilities...

The only thing that seems to be different is the issue with the Adobe Add-on and a recent Java update. Are there instabilities in these?

How do I fix the issue with Adobe? I need to be able to upload, download, and view PDFs...

Simply I want the option to control how many tiles are there. Nine is ok, but 16, 25, and maybe 36 would be great for options. With the choice of smaller thumbnails or a scrolling screen. Personally I'd like a 16 (4 by 4) That i could scroll down if I wanted to add more rows. Also the auto populate could get you in trouble with naughty pop-ups. Being able to turn off auto-populate would be nice as well. If that is already an option I haven't found it yet.

Any video player I play will randomly lose sound and a few seconds later stop playing. I've noticed that this happens when I have two or more tabs with video players on them. Having only one tab with a player, be it youtube, jw player, or veever, does not cause any problems. Having two of them out at the same time causes the problem to occur.

I believe this happened around the time I installed winzip and Windows XP Mode onto my computer, but I have since uninstalled XP Mode.

I use an Acer computer, Aspier 4830T-6841, windows 7.

Hello one and all! Here is my scenario:

I like to have Internet pages zoomed in as much as possible all the time. That is, zoomed in to the extent just before a scroll bar appears. So thus, I "Ctrl" and "+", or "Ctrl" and mouse-wheel in, until I reach the maximum point. I eliminate all the unnecessary dead space on the left and right sides of the screen.

My question is, within Firefox, (or any other browsers if you wish to share), is there a way to make the browser window zoom in automatically to a optimum level? I wish I didn't have to do the manual keystrokes to apply my desired zoomed-in view.

Thank you in advance to everybody who has any input on this.

Until then....
