My desktop shortcuts are plain white and do not show the correct icon which most websites provide. The shortcuts have been produced by dragging the (typical) Globe icon from the address bar whilst using Firefox. Icons produced the same way whilst using IE do show the icons correctly. I have tried the following: Ensure that FireFox is the default browser. Right click shortcut and try "Change Icon" but the only icons listed are generic MS ones. Delete iconcache.db FireFox / Options / Content / Advanced / Allow pages to choose their own fonts YES Reset FireFox to default, and then checked all of the above again. Changed screen resolution from default then back to default. Re-named GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT which was automatically replaced by iconcache.db by the system. OS is MS Windows 7 Professional. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Inbetween each check I have closed FireFox, re-booted and re-opened FireFox.

By allowing the wrong download to happen (my error), I ended up with Cloud Scout and Movie Wizard malware running in Firefox. Movie Wizard was the only one of the two programs showing up on the program list in Control Panel, but after many tries, it would not uninstall. I finally found the program folder for it and simply deleted the folder.

So I now get no ads, BUT an empty CloudScout frame is still in almost every Firefox tab. The biggest problem is that after about 30 seconds, every tab starts reloading again and says "connecting" it seems to just be trying to open a new ad and it cannot, so the empty frame remains.

I have tried to "recover" windows to an earlier date, but the only one available would not "complete". I reset Firefox, which made no difference. I deleted, restarted the computer and then re-downloaded Firefox, these actions changed nothing related to this problem.

I asked this last week but maybe I didn't explain properly. When I open Firefox on my desktop, the webpage itself does not appear, only the shortcut in the taskbar. If I click that, it looks like the page opens in a smaller version and then flies off to the right. I have no way of reaching menu items that were recommended to fix this because I have no access to the page, thus no menu.

Also, now that I've been fiddling with some other suggestions, I can no open any of my files. Again, if I click on the shortcut, the page appears to fly off the screen and now I have no access to anything.

I thought of reinstalling Firefox -- is this a possible solution? If I do reinstall, will I lose my bookmarks, or would I still be able to access them from "Favorites"? I'm doing research and my bookmarks are extensive.

After a Vista reinstall FF36 started to hang at start up. After a couple of days it would take 1 to 2 min. to start, after that it would be ok. However this wait is not acceptable. I think I tried all the listed troubleshooting including a complete uninstall twice. The only thing of FF that I retained was my bookmarks. Also used Revo uninstaller and deleted all traces of FF that I could find in all profiles. None of this solved the problem. I installed FF34.0.5 and it worked fine. Forgot to uncheck automatic update, so after it updated the problem returned and had to reinstall FF 34.0.5

I lost all my bookmarks and history after updating my firefox browser. I have tried locating the old profile, but there doesn't appear to be one. I have also tried restoring an old session, but that doesn't work either.

Is there really no trace of six years worth of bookmarks anywhere?

What's odd is the only thing left in my history is from the very rare occasion I ever used google chrome... how does it save my google chrome history and not the history from the browser I use all the time?

Hello

Having a strange issue with firefox - single mouse click will not open links - always needs a double click (even one with a long delay between first and second clicks) to navigate. This problem started about a month ago. I have used firefox for years without encountering this issue.

Outside of firefox (including in Windows, IE...) this problem does not occur. Interestingly, the problem also does not occur in firefox toolbars, menus, etc. It seems to be only for links...

I would really rather not reset firefox as it will be a right pain to recustomize lost settings etc.

All help appreciated

I recently received a browser highjack due to a sketchy program recommended by a friend. (Last time I listen to them.) I uninstalled the program but and restored my search engine, homepage, newtab page, and all that. (Some through the options, some through about:config) I uninstalled the program, removed all traces I could find through the registry. I even ran a anti-malware program.

However, when I go into the Options menu in Firefox, my "General" tab does not load at all. All of the other work fine, but this one does not. I assume this was a thing the malware did to avoid me changing my preferences, but since I changed them all already through other means, I am mostly annoyed. (At least I think I changed everything back. I would check, but... y'know.)

So is there any way to abilitate this option? Or will I be forced to always wonder if I got everything back to normal?

Hello everyone, here is my problem:

Also, I have looked around a few topics related to this and a few related solutions such as clearing cookies and cache, and editing the about:config option that I forgot the name of.
