When I search I get a Bing page with the search results (for example try "wrecking crew"), but when I click on the first result (wreckingcrew.tv), FF takes me to the correct page for a second and then that page disappears and I am on a Yahoo search page. When I click on the top entry, which is wreckingcrew.tv, I get a new tab which is once again a Yahoo search page, now labelled "DNS Solution Yahoo Error Handler". Also the search term has been changed to "wrecking crew bio images". This new page has lots of other links for wrecking crew, but no longer has a direct link to the correct website. This just started happening today (March 24) on my MacBook Air since I started running 36.0.4. I changed the home page to Bing and removed Yahoo from the search engine list but no help. Some other sites do not have this behavior. The other thing is sometimes when this happens, the default FF search engine gets changed to Yahoo even though I have explicitly REMOVED Yahoo from the list of search engines.

This is driving me NUTS! There is no problem in Safari, but I hate Safari.

When I load multiple PDFs in Firefox to check their content for errors one by one, closing one PDF tab to reveal another PDF tab very often causes plugin-container.exe to crash, which means I have to reload each remaining PDF tab to view the remaining files. This of course defeats the purpose of opening more than one at a time, and actually adds about 5 times as many clicks to the whole process because I have to clear the error and reload each page, then it might happen again or might not. It doesn't happen every time I close a PDF, but about 1 in 4 times.

I realize I have two versions of Acrobat installed (Acrobat 9.5.5 and Reader 11.0.10), and thus two Firefox plugins, but for the record this same thing happens on other computers that just have Reader or just have Acrobat, so it's not an issue of conflicting plugins. Though I did notice you aren't allowed to disable just one or the other -- deactivating one deactivates both. At first it seems not to, but if you reload the plugins page, you'll see both are actually off.

Windows coughs up the following error report when plugin-container.exe crashes, but Firefox says nothing, I guess because the plugin-container is a standalone app:

Problem signature:

Hi Folks. Once again Firefox is making me mad, I woke up this morning, turned on the old computer, started Firefox, and I have no URL bar. I've been trying to restore it, but no luck. Been searching the Firefox forums for a few hours, found similar questions, but ...no cigar. I have version 36.0.4 of Firefox. Can someone please explain how it disappeared and how to get it back?

I uninstalled FF, fully. And re-installed it. URL bar still gone. Also, I signed in to my SYNC, but my add-ons aren't coming back either.

I would appreciate your help.

A new problem a few weeks old. When I print from Firefox, the result is a very tiny image printed at the top part of the page. If I change the settings, it chops each page up into 4 pages and prints a quarter on each page. I do not have this problem if I print from IE, so not a printer problem. I have been through every single step in the help topic on printing problems and any step suggested in answer to a forum question. No joy.

Really appreciate all the hard work creating updates but every time I update I lose my about:config settings, especially the browser.tab ones that I rely on. Specifically I use non-default settings on InsertRelatedAfterCurrent and all the warning ones. (I never want to be warned). I also use the Tabs on Bottom plugin which also has to be reinstalled after major updates. I run Firefox on at least 4 separate machines so it is a rather huge headache to have to reconfigure after each update. Is there a way to tell Firefox to update but don't change my settings back to defaults?

Thanks for a great browser.

i try to keep my thumb palms off the mouse pad when i am typing but every now and then my screen resizes larger or smaller until i take my left palm off the keyboard base its only when my left palm is resting on the base next to the touch pad. i type pretty fast so it gets annoying and yes it also jumps screens or reverts back to previous message and i have to choose ctrl z to undo and get back to my message i was typing... it also switches tabs on me as well... not sure why my palm being on the left of the keypad on the base should effect anything but it does after a while. and i have to stop what i am doing...and go to the firefox menu and change the screen size back down to 100% sometimes it goes up to 200-300 other times it goes down to 70-80% i find it annoying i i wish there was a way to turn off the screen resize in the setup panel. if its just left to be 100% i am happy with that... i don't need it to be bigger or smaller... there should be a way to LOCK it down... i understand that there are people out there with eye problems and needs to have the screen size increase using the + or - but there should be a lock so it just stays no matter what is happening on my keypad or touch pad or base of the pad... that screen size will not increase or decrease. unless i turn off the lock... perhaps this is something they can implement in the next version or do a quick update of the browser

I have the latest Firefox for Windows on my computer. The default font sizes when opening the browser were too large, so I zoomed in twice (using 'view', then 'zoom-in'). It worked for the session. But once I close and re-open the browser, that change didn't 'stick'. I have to zoom-in every time I re-start Firefox. Tried just about everything that I can think of, but nothing seems to work (even changing the 'tools', 'options', 'fonts and colors'...because that messed up some websites that I use).

Any advice would be most appreciated.

After updating to FF 36.0.4, I did some routine maintenance; cleared the cache, history and cookies. Went to reboot FF afterward and unfortunately it would not open. I followed the FF support instructions to locate my profile folder, trashed the prefs.js file and rebooted FF, after which time it opened and worked perfectly. During this process I discovered that I have 2 profile folders; one was completely empty but the other has many files in it.

How did I end up with an empty profile folder, and is it okay to delete it? I assume this folder is not necessary, but none of the support articles cover an "empty" profile folder. If it is okay to remove it, do I just move it to the trash, or is there a more complicated means by which to remove an empty profile folder? By complicated, I'm referring to the support article at "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles#w_removing-a-profile" which had my head spinning and now I'm afraid to do anything. I'm wondering if the empty folder is really empty, or if it just appears to be empty but in reality there are hidden files associated with it that are stored elsewhere on the computer. Good heavens. Thank you.
