Download Yahoo out of my Firefox
I admit it. I downloaded a free program and held hostage by Yahoo.
I tried a lot of typical solutions found on the web, and I think that the doers of evil with Yahoo have also read and wrote a better more obnoxious malware.
I downloaded the new Firefox and installed, I tried to update and so on. I re-set my browser by default and what happens is I get two tabs at startup, a flaw and it is the silt of Yahoo.
Please help me get this disease out of my browser!
Thanks for the attempt to help.
So here's what solved 'accidentally '. I wrote this at the bottom and then forgot to save when I close my computer off last night, so I'll do my best to remember.
This problem persisted until I clicked on a SECURED link someone sent me in an email. I clicked it and it went straight to the page and this page in a new window opens.
I thought, "eh, it was strange." Better, I remember now, instinctively, I opened a NEW browser window, and there is still... this disease of Yahoo and my open home page tabs simultaneously.
I went back to the window that has opened in the page web of the link, is go to options, changed my home page back to the default in Firefox, and then click value on another TAB and it opens up Firefox by default.
I then selected Duck Duck Go in the search engine drop-down in the research cell (same tab), then returned to the options and changed the default home page for "use current pages".
Closed from the other window with two legs that open with Yahoo and Firefox home pages and then closed the window with two legs of the link I clicked and the tab I used to set my home page... then opens a new browser window and BAM... back to normal.
It's the best of my recollection.
Now when I followed your instructions, it has the right URL. This gets fixed as I wrote above, until I could try your solution.
Thank you for your help.
For anyone who has found this solved the problem because they had the same problem. Now, you know that the real solution is to take it slow when you download a free program. In fact, be careful when you download and install programs even you pay because even those who understand often insidious modules of the sponsors who want to take control of your computer or at least your browser.
When we are looking for a solution, we are often in a hurry to get this solution of software free to work very quickly, and we tend to click all the "Thanks" and "Okay" very fast... we just want the danged program and the rest to shut up and make the road.
BUT... buried in a large number of them is this toxic junk preying on your desire for a cheap or free 'something' and they rely on the fact that most of the people will live with all malicious software has been installed as the computer still works well. But, you are now being watched by more people than you were before if you let this junk out there.
Patience and make attention is the preventive solution. ALWAYS be wary of any programs that install. Even those you pay maybe junk you don't want and could have deselected you just slowed down and thought about all the steps of the installation procedure.
Thanks to the Firefox community.
FAFSA is the form to fill out for financial aid for College. I need to fill out the form later for the spring semester of next year. Until I'm able to fill it in online and save and send to school. When I'm on the site and click on fill out a form, a message came that I didn't have the right version of my browser, so I downloaded the latest version of Firefox, and then restarted the computer and is returned to the site to try again and got the same message. Then I had two shortcut icons on my desktop and I can't say that one is for the latest version of Firefox.
When you download the latest version, it removes the last version that you had previously downloaded?
Fafsa.gov site can't stand no more recent than the version of Firefox 3.6.x. It's their choice.

You can install the version of Firefox Portable for use only on this site and use your current version of Firefox for all the rest. Firefox Portable is not produced by Mozilla (but it is based on the versions of Firefox released) and only is not supported on this site - has its own support forum (see below). Firefox Portable installs in a separate folder on your hard disk so that it does not interfere with your currently installed version configuration Firefox or personal information (bookmarks, passwords, etc.). You can also install Firefox Portable on a USB/thumb/pin/jump drive.

After several years of success with Yahoo mail and Firefox, I can longer open mail of Yahoo (jpg, bmp) images. I can open them in gmail with Firefox or IE. I can open them in Yahoo mail using IE. I am running Firefox 7.0.1 and I think, but am not sure, all my trouble started after the update to this version of Firefox.
RESOLVED: Here is the solution to "I can't open the images in Yahoo mail with 7 Firefox, but IE works." Just before I log on my E-mail Yahoo site I turn on cookies, but I never enable third-party cookies. That has always worked very well until October 2011. Just after I installed the new Firefox 7 this problem started. Now I just found out that the problem is solved, if I enable cookies from third party. Users should not have to enable cookies from third party read the Yahoo mail via Firefox!
I was prompted to download the latest version of firefox and I selected restart later... I don't want to download this version... you can cancel it for me?
The last time that I downloaded the latest version of firefox that all my favorites have been removed. I don't want to download the latest version - please help
No, you protect your personal data when you update Firefox.
Firefox stored the personal data in the profile folder.
If you are concerned then make sure to back up your data regularly.
I can't get my password box or my java tool correctly load or work on the update for firefox java tool is something that I have to complete my work in my cisco course. So I would like to know if there is a way to download and install an older version of firefox, so I have something I can do my job without having to use a browser that I don't have confidence.
If you decide to try the version Extended Support Release (ESR) of Firefox, here is how I suggest to install:
Clean reinstall it
We use this name, but it isn't about deleting your settings, this is to ensure that the program, files are clean (not incompatible, corrupt or exotic code files). As described below, this process does not disrupt your existing settings. Don't uninstall NOT Firefox, that does not need.
(A) download a fresh Installer for Firefox 38.2.0esr of https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/organizations/all/ in an ideal location. (Scroll down your preferred language).
(B) the release of Firefox (if any).
(C) to rename the program folder, either:
(Windows 64-bit folder names)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
C:\Program Files (x86)\Fx40
(Windows 32-bit folder names)
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
(D) run the installer downloaded to (A). It should automatically connect to your existing settings.
Install and run?
Note: Some plugins can only exist in the old folder. If it is missing something essential, present in these files:
I'm using mac os x version 10.7.4 and I try to update Firefox 3.5.5 version to the latest version. The Firefox icon in my doc still persists and leads me to the old version of Firefox. If it's supposed to happen?
Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox program files, and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
Note: You can print these steps or consult them in another browser.
- Download the latest version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org office and save the installer to your computer.
- Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (click on quit in the file menu or Firefox).
- Remove the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
- C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
- C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
- Mac: Delete Firefox in the Applications folder.
- Linux: If you have installed Firefox with the distribution-based package manager, you must use the same way to uninstall: see Install Firefox on Linux. If you have downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
- Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
- Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
- Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.

It is possible that there is a problem with the files that store the registry extensions.
Delete the files (extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini, extensions.cache) extensions.* and compatibility.ini in the profile folder of Firefox to reset the extensions registry.
New files will be created if necessary.
See "extension corrupted files:
If you see disabled extensions, is not compatible, in "tools > Modules > Extensions ' and then click the Tools button, on the left side of the search bar (or click on the"Find updates"button in older versions of Firefox) to check if there is an available update compatibility.
If that didn't help then also try to delete the file addons.sqlite.

I downloaded the latest version of Firefox 13 after having quickly that I didn't have the latest version of Firefox. No Web page seems correct, including this one. All Web pages are displayed "plain." For example when I type in retail right now it takes a box or something to show me where to put space details - no box - only. I use Google as my home page. The Firefox logo was on the Google home page, but it is absent. When I go to Google Mail there is no checkboxes delete mail etc... when I go to the same pages using Internet Explorer pages display correctly if something's not on Firefox. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox without deleting my personal settings etc, but this made no difference. If my only option is to delete all my info I should do, but have been on Firefox and really don't want to lose this info. I checked all the settings when I looked not all Web pages display correctly in HELP and all settings are correct. What should I do? I don't want to go back to using IE, but that's basically what I have to do right now to the function to make banking operations etc...

Where can I download 64-bit version of firefox?
for windows 7.
There is still no official release of Firefox 64-bit (x 64). While we plan to release it in the future, it probably won't be for at least 6 months or more. However, you can use the 32-bit (x 86) version of Firefox on Windows x 64. You can download from www.getfirefox.com.

If he has problems with the update or the permissions then simpler is to download the full version and trash the version currently installed to do a clean install of the new version.
Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the file on the desktop disk image (dmg)

- Trash the present application Firefox to do a clean (re-) install
