  • How can I get rid of the Yahoo homepage? Changing the home page does not work.

    A week or two before Yahoo started coming as my home page. No matter how many times I change back to Bing, whenever I have rise of Firefox, there is Yahoo as homepage. Does not he back on Bing and clicking ok. I'm a little frustrated by that. How can I get rid of Yahoo to come as my home page when I have asked yet for her?

    Thank you for your time and your consideration.


    Change the home page when you check only in "Options > general > Startup" or is it a problem with the page that opens when you launch Firefox?
    For the latter, you can check the field target in the Firefox desktop shortcut.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem.

    • Put yourself in the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance
    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe

    If you do not keep the changes after a reboot or have problems with preferences, see:

    Make a check of malware with several malware scanning of programs on the Windows computer.
    Please scan with all programs, because each program detects a different malicious program.
    All of these programs have free versions.

    Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before scanning.

    Alternatively, you can write a check for an infection rootkit TDSSKiller.

  • How can I get rid of the security warning when viewing Web pages

    I recently received a security window pop-up asking if I want to view only Web pages delivered safely. How can I get rid of this and why I see this all of a sudden

    Hi Elizabeth,.

    I don't know why he suddenly began occurring - maybe it was an update or something you have installed.  It may be a corrupted system file or maybe even malware. It is very difficult to tell without extensive trials.  But let's focus on the most likely solutions.  Later, if you want to go back to the 'why', we can make some procedures to test potential causes (although if the problem is resolved, it can be very difficult to identify the cause because it can be fixed or repaired money) - but I'll be happy to go there with you, if you want to.

    In Internet Explorer, go to Internet Options / Security / Internet / Custom level / then highlight near the bottom in the section, until you get to "Display mixed content".  My guess is that it is defined at the command prompt (which is the window that you see).  You have three choices: you can leave things as they are on command prompt and decide in each case what you want to do (which is how I have mine set up - it really is not so common).  You can click on Enable and IE automatically displays pages with mixed content and no prompt.  You can click on disable and IE will display not these pages (and will probably give you a screen indicating the reason and you must then choose somewhere else to go or perehaps click on the back button to go to the page that brought you to this page to see if there is no indication to choose one type of content and avoid the problem (although I've honestly never seen such an option).)

    For what it's worth, I almost always approve unless I'm on an unknown site where I already feel uncomfortable for a reason-so I can choose to refuse to approve and give up everything I did and move on (but it happens so rarely I honestly don't remember not that last time who had held-) It has been several months at least.

    If this does not work (or it has not been set to prompt), do you know where this problem started?  Try a system restore to a point in time BEFORE the problem started.  Here is the procedure:  Don't forget to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points.  If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two.  NOTE: You will need to re-install any software and updates that you have installed and uninstall any software that you have removed between now and the point of restoration, but you can use Windows Update for updates.

    I hope this helps.  If this isn't the case, after return and, if you can provide me with some links to these sites (I don't remember those where it happened to me) so I can further research and to test the results.

    Thanks and good luck!

  • How can I get rid of the new toolbar that have been added by versions 20 and 21?

    I tried both versions 20 and 21, and both have the bugs below, so I ended up having to reinstall version 19:
    Versions 1.) 20 and 21 Add a new toolbar that has nothing more than a button "Firefox" on it--and no way to get rid of this toolbar is provided. It wastes far too much space on my laptop screen - button should be placed on an other toolbars, or simply part of the defined icon that users can use to customize their menus or other toolbars bar.
    2.) this new toolbar is not customizable. Therefore, I don't have the ability to recover space on the screen by the way all of my sidebar on the new toolbar, and then hide the MenuBar.
    (3.) the back, forward and stop. reload buttons in my menubar no longer work. Return to the navigation toolbar and display this toolbar do not solve the problem. Or I can right-click on a web page and select these functions in the context menu: they are disabled for life again.
    4.) I can no longer right-click on the menu bar or a toolbar and get a context menu you I can choose an option "Customize" - I can't ALL a context menu. In order to customize things for versions 20 or 21, I must first reinstall the version 19, make customizations, and then reinstall the version 20 or 21.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

  • How can I get rid of the ADOBE toolbar offer in the emails of people get from Adobe send

    I like to send files. I'm not thrilled to have a huge banner of Adobe in the upper part of the e-mail people receive from me. Adobe can do advertising in small print, thank you very much. It is not very professional for me to advertise for someone else's company. So, how can I remove it?

    For now, it is not possible to remove the banner if you send custom links, but we are actively working on customization feature (similar to that of SendNow) which will allow you to replace Adobe banner/logo with your own.

    In the meantime, your options are to send public links of your own email account or use SendNow (you can connect to SendNow will continue to work until we have custom to send Adobe branding.

    Hope that solves your problem.
