PROBLEM SOLVED! This is so embarrassing, but here's what fixed it. I'll leave the question here in case others download the add-on and can't figure out why it's doing what it's doing, but if a mod wants to delete the question I won't mind.

Anyhow, I right clicked on exactly the right spot on the bar and chose Delete, which brought up the add-on tab, which showed an add-on called "Default Tab," restarted Firefox, and now both behaviors are gone--no more search window in the tab bar, and no more search box in new tabs. I must have thought Default Tabs sounded cool, but didn't expect it to do what it did.

********************************************************************************

Sometime between Friday and this morning a new search box¬ appeared in Firefox that called itself the “Updated Search Bar” until I tried it the first time. I’d like to avoid resetting Firefox, but if that’s the only way to fix this I guess I’ll have to. All suggestions are welcome.

The box looks much like the default search box except that it has a big orange button on the right saying "Search." It’s located in the tab bar, next to the last tab, taking up valuable real estate if I have more than 4 or 5 tabs open, which I often do. The default “search” is Bing, the other options are things like Facebook and Twitter, and it has no option to manage search engines. It doesn’t appear in my extensions or plugins, and I can’t find information about it anywhere.

BTW, my old search box is still in the navigation bar, and although I haven’t been able to get rid of Bing for the “search” search, I’ve made DuckDuckGo the default by moving it to the top of the list.

Thanks for reading!

I can provide a screenshot to help illustrate my problem. Every page I load has numerous ad boxes embedded into the page from "Ads by Browse to Save". Does anyone else have this problem? Is this something that firefox added to their browser or do I have a malware problem? (I see no option to post a screenshot of the problem, as is advised on the community help homepage. Maybe I will have that option once my question is posted.)

My yahoo toolbar cannot be modified and is essentially useless. The refresh button doesn't work, and none of the icons (apps) are the ones I used to have. The yahoo instructions suggest using the plus sign, which also doesn't appear. I have seen others having similar problems, but mine is with Firefox version 20.0 and Windows 7. My computer is new, and I used the sync feature to maintain my Firefox settings, bookmarks, etc, which may or may not be related to the problem. Yahoo help used to be better and more personalized. Now I can't even find a way to contact them. Someone elsewhere on this site gave a phone number, but I was on hold forever. Any ideas?

Just upgraded from version 17 to 20 to find, somehow, Firefox has taken a step backward in how the download window is displayed.

This is the old one: http://limi.net/media/copy_of_Downloadspopulated.png

Look at all that useful information, File name, file size, URL of site, and time/date completed.

Who thought it would be a good idea to take all that info away when "upgrading" to Firefox 20?

Why can't people just do their job right :-s

This has been going on for years. When I have 3 or 4 tabs, especially facebook open, and am watching a youtube video Firefox freezes up a lot. I just dealt with it but I'm starting to get sick of it. The only addons I use are DownloadHelper and AdBlock Plus. I have a lot of plugins disabled. I don't know what is causing this but I just checked on my CPU Usage and Firefox was using 266,000+ K and that's not counting Flash, which was using 70,000+ K. Someone please help me fix this extremely irritating issue.

I had my bookmarks toolbar enabled (View - Toolbars - Bookmarks Toolbar). Yesterday, the toolbar disappeared. On the View-Toolbars menu, Bookmarks Toolbar was still selected. I unselected it and the toolbar appeared. Although now, Bookmarks Toolbar on the menu was unselected. Next time I started Firefox, the toolbar was gone again. I selected it from the menu and it reappeared. But next time I started it, it was gone again and Bookmarks Toolbar on the menu was showing as selected.

I've been having trouble due, apparently, to a file named popuptransparent[dot]xul, of which I have 3 instances on my computer (running Win XP/Firefox latest v.). Using my AVG home-page window, I search for "popuptransparent" (to try to fix it) and the results appear OK. But then when I click, for a new tab, on the link "popup transparent" in the query, "Did you mean: popup transparent", NO RESULTS appear in that new tab. Further, when I then reload the AVG panel that searched for "popuptransparent" in the first place, it, too, now shows no results. Nor does a Google panel now show any results. They show the quantity of results but just white screens for the results themselves.

The links https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/948804?esab=a&as=aaq and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/952141?esab=a&as=aaq don't help me. I have re-installed Firefox v. 20.0.1 to no avail. How to fix it?

Should I delete from my computer all 3 of those [dot]xul instances?
