Trying to download Monthly Statements from Merrill Lynch website. Firefox used to download them as .PDFs (and MS IE 8 still does). Now Firefox downloads an .ASPX instead. Or maybe not -- If I change the extension of the downloaded file to .PDF. it loads correctly in Acrobat Reader. Why does Firefox use the wrong extension??

Bing Hijacking of Firefox

My browser was hijacked by Bing when I downloaded a recent update. After the hijacking I could no longer enter a plain-text website name (Like "Amazon" or "Home Depot") into the navigation window, hit enter, and get taken to the website in question. INSTEAD, I was directed to a Bing search page.

Here's the fix:

1. Type "about:config" in Firefox’s address bar (without the quotes), hit ENTER, and if you get a cute little warning box pop up telling you that you're going to void your warranty, tell it to trust you.

2. You get a page full of intimidating looking computer stuff. Near the top, in the Filter box, type "keyword". That will bring you to the keyword section.

3. You should find at least a couple of keyword entries. Make sure that "keyword.enabled" is set to "true".

4. Look for "keyword.url" and double-click on it. When the box pops up to let you edit it, clear out the contents and paste the following string into the box.

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

5. Click OK.


6. Clear "keyword" from the filter window, and type in "B I N G", one letter at a time. Slowly. Wherever you see "Bing", change it to "Google". ([i]or whatever/i)


When you're all done, restart Firefox, test your browser function by typing "Amazon" into the address window and seeing if it works.

Then face West and say: BITE ME, BILL!!

I check my plug-ins almost daily. Adobe Acrobat needed to update. I have never had trouble before with this. It's Adobe PDF Plug-in for Firefox and Netscape 10.0.1 that won't update. Thing is the Adobe Manger came on and it looked like it was done and in my Add-ons box it's there but the plug-in on my Firefox plug-in page says it's outdated. I tried to install it several times and the Adobe Manger downloads but site still says it's outdated. My Adobe Reader X works fine though. Maybe this is something I don't have to worry about but I don't know. So, I'm asking for some help. Also, even though this didn't update correctly, when I did update the first time it brought along a new plug-in called getPlusPlus for Adobe 162103, at first I disabled it in my add-0n/plug-in box but I read that this helps Adobe Reader and I enabled it. But the Plug-in box remains grey and says unknown. So, should I disable it? Thanks for any help you can give me. Sincerely, Debbie

Hello all!

Almost every time when I use my usb barcode scanner (Champtek WAND barcode reader) to scan a barcode on an online banking site, Firefox opens up the Downloads-window. So I figure that somehow Firefox thinks that I have pressed CTRL+J - how could I change this behaviour, eg. to completely disable that CTRL+J keyboard shortcut or change it to something else?
