Okay - for YEARS now I've used ONLY Firefox - it had the best extensions and add-ons of any other browser out there. Add to it, it was safe and very quick. So it was my default browser.

This week I logged into my DeviantArt site and odd advertisements started showing up in the lower left and right corners of the browser, unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Add to it, they were very inappropriate! So I assumed that something was wrong, and went through three, as in 3, programs to find out if I had any 'bugs' causing the problems. And of course, there was some kind of nasty bug in Firefox causing all kinds of issues.

So, following the suggestions of the fixer, plus the suggestions here, I deinstalled Firefox (21) then reinstalled the newer version, 23. At first, I thought, "Wow, that is really fast!". When I opened Firefox it didn't go to my home page, it went to the Firefox startup page, along with opening tabs for EVERY add-on and extension!

So, opened Tools, Options and reset the home page to my home page, https://www.google.com

Simple, and something I've done before. I'm a computer geek and have worked on my own additions. So, set up my home page, was working in Firefox, went to youtube to download a video and it wouldn't! So went to DLhelper, read their comments, changed one of the strings, and voila! No problems!

So I thought it was fixed and I was happy. That was last night. This morning I boot the puter and the first thing I do is open Firefox . And what happens? Oh, yes, that's right, NOTHING THAT I WOULD HAVE WANTED! It's back to the Firefox startup page, and it opens tabs for EVERY SINGLE ADD-ON!

Holy carp, getting tired now. So I research from 8 this morning until about an hour ago, so just over 5 hours I keep trying to fix it based on Firefox instructions. Go into about:config, work on the strings, change the home page info, etc. Save it. Go back to Tools, Options and there's my home page. Close Firefox and open it, and what the heck? Again, back to where it was, opening as if I just uploaded this browser. Now I've spent literally HOURS trying to fix this and I'm so frustrated that I'm just about ready to de-install it! My one complaint is that I searched all over to try and find this same problem and cannot find it. Is that true, I'm the only one with this bizarre problem???

Hello, recently I have noticed that when I type in my address bar, I get results that I have not seen before. When i type in "facebook", the facebook page comes up in my address bar, but also in bold black I see a mangifying glass like its a recent search i did, and it just says facebook. When I click on it it gives me a bing search for facebook. How do i remove these bing search suggestions from my address bar? Depending on what im trying to navigate to, i get anywhere from 3-10 searches and I can't see any of my history to navigate.

Hi there,


I have a major/minor pet peeve that's been bothering me for years now. Too bad that it's only now that the idea of asking for help online crossed my head today. I guess that says something about me.


Well, you see, I always check my mail (Gmail) everyday after entering "private browsing". After I enter my username & password, I always uncheck the 'Stay signed in' box, before I press ENTER.


Yes, yes, I know that 'cause I'm in private browsing mode, that there's really no need for me to do that. But you see, it bugs me for no reason. That is why I admitted beforehand that I had a PET PEEVE.


So is there anyway for me to play with my account settings so that the box is unchecked automatically for me by default from now on?

Thank You!


I've asked this same question in the Google Help Forum and they've suggested that it could be due to anyone of the firefox addons that I've installed

Well, atleast here's the link to that discussion... http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gmail/7m2LlSN6Aag/discussion

I was just working on an eBay listing and I pressed the "delete" key when the cursor was not in a field and it made my browser go back a page. In doing this, I lost an ENTIRE LISTING WORTH OF WORK! This is such an annoying feature! I don't want my delete key to do anything except delete text. How can I disable this feature that makes the delete key perform the same function as the "back arrow". For example, if the cursor was out of this box right now and I pressed "delete" by accident, I would have to re-type all of this text! This is a stupid feature. Please tell me, how do I disable it?

I've tried changing the preferences and I put in my preferred home page address under General, but even though it still has that listed as my home page, I always get Bing when I open a new tab. How do I lose Bing so new tabs bring up my own website? Thanks.
