Hi - I need to use Firefox because an online course only works with it. However, I will never use it for anything else unless I can get rid of Ask.com as my default address bar search. I have been through the support files and have tried everything. There is no Ask toolbar. There is no chromewebapp.sqlite file or user.js file (may be wrong on spelling as I'm doing this from memory). I reset keyword.url and changed it to http://www.google.com/search?q=. I reset that other file (something about stone...again, I'm doing this from memory!). I reset Firefox. I completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it.

I believe this is connected to Norton Safe Search. However, the Norton Toolbar is disabled and Safe Search is disabled. I did want to be able to use the Norton Toolbar and never had this problem with it in the past.

Can you help or should I just go back to using Chrome?

When I save a page to my bookmarks it doesnt show up in my bookmarks tab. They show up if I click show all bookmarks and scroll down to end, but they do not show up on my list of bookmarks in the regular bookmarks tab. How do I get them to start showing up again on the regular bookmarks area instead of only in the show all bookmarks area?

I'm finding it very confusing that for some reason I have all sorts of backup files for firefox backed up on my USB pen & desktop.

I have no idea if I need to keep all of them, or just one of them, as backup.

Which of the below do i need to keep, and which delete? Thanks.

bookmarks.html (on my USB pen)

My browser freezes then I get the error about adobe crashing. This has been happening for a few months now. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and adobe multiple times. I tried making a new profile for firefox also, but nothing has helped. This past week I have also been getting errors about the shockwave plugin crashing. I've tried malware removal, antivirus removal, but it's all coming back clean. I'm not sure what to do anymore.

First, I completely uninstalled firefox completely, including all reg entries I found. I am now still having the same issue pop up again. When I restart the computer my firefox 20.0.01 reverts to 20.0 for no reason. It will not open links from e-mail saying that I must restart to complete an installation or complete an installation. I need to fix this as some things will not work. I have at least one add-on that is no longer available and I would like to find a way to back up all of my add-ons so that I can format the hard drive if there is not a better solution. I am hoping that someone can help.

Image path displays instead of image

Firefox v20.0.1, Win7 32 bit. This web page ( http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/5336 ) does not display the "flowchart"image at the bottom of the page immediately following the text "The following is a map of other documents..." On a correctly working page, the image is a flowchart "navigation" image that opens new pages depending on where you click on it. In firefox only a box with an ftp path to the image is displayed in its place. I have seen the problem on other web pages as well.

Actions taken: The pages displays correctly in IE v10. This problem happens on one computer. Different computer, same firefox version displays correctly. Different computer older firefox version (v17?) displays correctly.

  • I have tried disabling all plug-ins and extensions.
  • I have created a new profile. Seems like the first time I did this, the page displayed correctly, but when I refreshed (F5) the image is gone and the ftp path box is displayed. Subsequently created new profiles do not display the page correctly.
  • I have tried resetting Firefox and the page still is not displayed correctly.

Troubleshooting: Ctrl-shif-K, opened the Web Console, cleared the console output, refreshed the page by pressing Ctrl-F5. The following is several lines following the first error on the console:

[09:12:29.360] Unknown property '-moz-border-radius'. Declaration dropped. @ http://zone.ni.com/widgets/share/addthis/1.0/css/share.css:11

I've upgraded to 20.0 from 19.0.2. Now the address bar is unresponsive. After typing in a valid URL and hitting enter (or clicking the arrow on the far right of the address bar), nothing happens. No error message or anything. If I open a new tab and click one of the tiles representing previously visited pages, everything works as expected. Bookmarks work too. I've tried resetting Firefox, to no avail. The only cure at this time is downgrading to 19.0.2 where everything works as expected.

Was very surprised by the new interface and process. Frankly, it's a step backward and really leaves alot to be desired.

Is there anyway to change the config back to the download process/interface model of v19.x?

Pages with web fonts, like http://google.com/fonts, are not rendered correctly. All text that should be web fonts is shown with the default font. This is Firefox 20.0 on Ubuntu 13.04 with Gnome 3.8. - Starting in safe mode does not help. - neither does starting with a new blank profile. - There are no error messages in the Error Console. - Javascript is enabled. - not allowing hardware acceleration does not help. - the "Allow sites to use their own fonts" option is checked. - I am not behind a proxy.

What else is there to check?

I seem to be stuck on a certain background theme/persona. Whenever I go to change themes, nothing changes. I can switch back to the original default theme but other than that, I'm stuck with a snowflake theme I used during winter. I've disabled all my extensions through safe mode to no avail. I've cleared cache and cookies, updated plugins, searched for the stuck theme in about:config and in my firefox folders, etc. So far, nothing has worked... Any ideas?!

Hi,

whenever i start a fresh Firefox Process and open Websites (example: g2play.net), Firefox will freeze for around 3 Minutes before the Website loads. This happens on a bunch of different Websites. Different browsers work fine (tried IE10).

What i have tried to fix this issue: - Disable all Addons - Disable Javascript - Start in Safe Mode - Clear all Files (Cache, Offline Data, everything) - Completely remove and install Firefox new - Create a new Windows user - Update all Drivers - Closing all the background programs i could close

Nothing fixed my Problem so far.

Computer Specs: Windows 7 64 bit SP1 updated to the newest versions AMD Phenom II x6 1100T - 6 core proccesor running at 3,30 GHZ noname 8 GB DDR 3 RAM ATI Radeon HD 5750 noname 2 TB Harddrive

Programs running in the background: Steam, Thunderbird, Avast, Winamp, Piclair, Brother ControlCenter3, Brother Status Monitor, Razer Lachesis 5600, AMD Vision Engine Control Center

I think (im not 100% sure on this) that the problem first appeared with Firefox 20.0.1. Also it only happens when loading that website for the first time, once its cached it doesn't hang anymore (i have my firefox set to clear the cache everytime the browser exits).

edit: it's not my connection, neither my DNS Server. I got a 100mbit connection running and i have tried to access the website directly over the IP but the problem still remains.
