    • RESETTING DOES NOT WORK**

Hello, I can recently acquired the Search Engine Malware? (I think it is a Malware)

http://isearch.claro-search.com/?affID=114169&tt=120812_bandext_3312_4&babsrc=HP_iclro&mntrId=907087e4000000000000002185985c90

I can not for the life of me take back the "HOMEPAGE" I have searched around everywhere and found how to take over the "NEW TAB" issue and it is back to Google.ca.

But I have yet to find a single issue with the Homepage being automatically hijacked and sending me straight back to the website no matter what I do to change the URL.

I have done the following things.

1: Removed the Toolbar from Add-ons

2: Removed the Toolbar from Control Panel

3: Shut down my computer and rebooted into Safe Mode - Networking to run Malware and other virus scanners.

4: Changed my Hosts File

5: Turned on Firefox in Safe-Mode resetting all defaults.

6: Changed the URL several times. ____________________________________________________

I can set the homepage to "Blank" which solves the issue. BUT I want Claro off my computer for good not just covered up with settings.


NOTE: I do not have expert knowledge in computerized configuration so I am at a lose into doing something like Manually checking my systems files and such to remove this issue.

If you know how to fix this, Please be detailed and simple.

Also! If i type anything into the search bar incorrectly it automatically uses iSearch-Claro to search for results.

Since yesterday, Youtube hasn't been working on Firefox. The page loads, but then the video itself just won't play. The black screen comes up and then a circle, saying it's loading but it just never does. I've tried:

- Using Firefox in safemode, which caused YouTube to work again. I then re-entered the normal mode an disabled my only add-on (AdBlock Plus), but YouTube still didn't work. - Deleting my cache/history - Doing the windows+r thing, and deleting temporary files, which someone else on the website suggested - Refreshing Firefox

None of these solutions have worked. On my 'plugins' section, Widevine something and OpenH264 something will be installed shortly, but I don't know if that'll change anything, and it's been saying that since yesterday.

The mail program on Yahoo has been frozen in Firefox, no other browser. Yesterday, I opened it, and i was unable to delete mail because the whole toolbar with delete, reply, forward, spam, etc. was no longer on my mail window. I tried to send an email, but this function was also disabled.

Basically, the only thing that Firefox enables in Yahoo mail is loading new emails. I had to use Safari and Chrome to perform these functions on the toolbar that is still missing in Firefox.

What happened? How to restore these functions?

I suddenly can no longer view PDF files in Firefox. I get the message, "It appears you don't have a pdf plugin for this browser. Please use the link below to download this pdf." Firefox's troubleshooting info about disabling extensions did not help. I have no extensions enabled now. I changed my security settings on Firefox a few days ago to prevent sites from tracking me, and today I went back and reversed that, but I still can't open or view PDF files in Firefox. Thank you for any suggestions you can offer.

I have two yahoo search engines appearing in the search box menu. One is Yahoo and the other is Yahoo! (with the explanation mark). It appears the Yahoo! has hijacked my browser as I am unable to remove it by using the manage search engine option. While it appears to be removed, when I close Firefox I get a message that says a program blocked its removal. Please tell me what I need to do to remove this bogus search engine as it redirects me to what appear to be legit Yahoo pages saying words that I never typed could not be found. Interestingly, the redirects do not occur for all websites I visit.

Thanks, Tony

I have Ubuntu 10.1 and want to install a new version of Firefox. I have downloaded the tar bz2 file from their website. I have it in my Downloads folder along with an extracted file folder Firefox. I guess I can remove the old version in Terminal with: sudo apt-get remove firefox. My question is, what Terminal command string do I use to install the new tar file? I guess it will have to point to the extracted folder or the tar file in my download folder.

I can run the new Firefox from the download firefox folder but it will not save any of my bookmarks when closed.

btw none of the older links work for install.
