Logo of Firefox missing on the desktop, another coming from the reboot took his place

Firefoxlogo missing and I could use not all Forefox.
Initially I not could find and tried to reinnstall.
He says I did, I would choose the old or new. New.
The exe was innstalled and clicking that it restarted the series - twice.
I tried to uninnstall Firefox.
After that, I could see her, or a long series of object unimpossible to uninnstall.
Once a Ponte 8 - symbol was there on innstallingpage who disappeared, I never clicked it.
The symbol of the exe was on my desk.
It took me a veil to remove.
Your instructions are all of this and, as I had the possibility using Firefox, I don't have.
I can't use it at all.

Hi datauspesialist. I'll have following disorder in the description of your problem, so I'm really not sure what the problem is that you need help with. You say that a Firefox logo is missing on the desktop - that sounds to me like Firefox is not installed on your computer.

You are using Windows XP? Vista? Mac OS? Did you follow the instructions step by step to install Firefox (for example https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-mac or https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-windows)?

BTW, feel free to react in Norwegian. I noticed in the other information you have submitted you're probably from the Norway. (I'm Swedish, so I'll be able to understand better this way.)

  • Search engine continues to change the logo of firefox with 'Search The Web' and takes me to different search engines, Bing or Google so far. I don't want to. It used to be always on the Google, and I want to again permanently on Google. Help?

    Just like the States mentioned above. This refers to the search bar on the right. I don't want to remove it, I like to use. I want to get back the Google value permanently. Even if I turn it on to Google in the drop-down menu, when I restart Firefox, it changes back. Once again, instead of any other logo of search engine, it has a small logo of Firefox, saying 'Web search' next to him in grey if no text is entered. He often gives Bing search results, even if I deleted Bing in search engines installed.

    I also checked the default search engine in topic: config, and despite what I describe above, the default value is still on Google.

    Why this is happening and how to fix it? It didn't happen until the other day here, so it would be after the update to Firefox 6.

    Go to your add-ons Manager and disable extensions test pilot.

    Fixed a problem. Someone should pay me now!

  • I installed windows vista home basic 32-bit on my desktop pc coming from my laptop

How can I get my activation key code to exit the mode limited functions?

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s XP set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    Save all your data because it will be lost during the installation of XP.

    Then follow the steps below to do a clean install.


    Once installed, reload ALL your other programs of original media, or download again.

    Reload all drivers and utilities for your motherboard.

  • Firefox asked a "refresh", computer locked up before finished, created a "old data FireFox file on the desktop.

    Firefox asked a 'refresh', I pressed the button refresh and process running, computer then locked up to complete before. He has created a "old data file FireFox" on the desktop. I need to understand how trasfer the data in the old file of data in my FureFox 'new' to allow me to access my bookmarks and other. Thank you!

    Hi Ken, Firefox will not start now, complaining that it cannot find its profile, or it starts up, but data are incomplete?

    Here is a procedure to return to your prior to refresh the data. It takes 5 minutes, but it's probably faster than the recovery of individual data files and those in a new profile from loading.

    Check inside the folder 'Old data Firefox' update adds on your desktop in a folder with a name random semi. If there is only one, that probably has your old settings and Add-ons. If there is more than one, you'll want to work with one who has been updated recently.

    Once you have identified the profile folder, that you want to restore, here is my "old profile resurrection suggested procedure:


    Here are the steps described in more detail below:

    1. Create a new Firefox profile
    2. Delete all of this profile folder
    3. Copy in all of the old profile folder

    Create a new profile for Firefox (Windows)

    Out of Firefox and start in the Profile Manager by pasting the following text in the search box of the start menu, or the start > Run dialog box and pressing ENTER:

    firefox.exe -P

    Note: any time want to switch profiles, exit Firefox and return to this dialog box.

    Click on the button create a profile, give it a name like OldSettings and skip the option to change the location of the folder. Select the new profile from the dialog box, and then start Firefox.

    Open the new profile folder in Windows Explorer

    Firefox in the new profile should look like a new installation of the plant. Open the troubleshooting information page by using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • Menu help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    In the first table, click on the view file"" button. Firefox will launch your new profile folder in Windows Explorer.

    This folder open, switch back to Firefox and get out by using either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    Firefox is closed, the profile folder must be front and Center, or you can activate it by using the taskbar.

    Copy old data instead of new

    In this new profile folder you just popped open - NOT the one on your desktop - select all content (you can use Ctrl + a) and delete (you can press Delete on the keyboard).

    Leave this window open, open or switch to your folder of old data of Firefox. Consult your old profile folder. At this level, you should see a folder named bookmarkbackups among other things.

    Select all (Ctrl + a) and copy (or right-click > copy or Ctrl + c).

    Switch to the empty profile folder in another window and paste (or right-click > paste or Ctrl + v). This may take a few minutes because some files are large.

    Launch Firefox

    Firefox should start in this 'new' profile with the old resurrected profile data. Success?

  • Audio plays more when Firefox is not the 'active' application on the desktop

    Just updated to the latest version (10.0.1). Audio plays now is more if Firefox is not the 'active' application on the desktop. In the past, I was able to open the Firefox browser, go to a site to listen to the audio, then go to another application on my computer and the audio would play again through my speakers from the firefox website. Now if I do that I lose audio, unless firefox is the 'active' application, which means that if the bar blue top on the browser is blue and not dimmed. I tried the Add on "Always on top" and this does not solve the problem I have. I looked through the various settings and did not see a solution. Can someone tell me if it's change-able or if it will be is no longer possible through browsers firefox?

    DOH! Feel like a jerk! Understand my problem! Sorry! Uh, I (or probably any other) had put the audio for the other app I was using (Avid editing software) on mute, causing the audio does not sink when the firefox browser was not "active".
    Someone else has a similar problem should check to see if the other application you use has the sound 'on '.

    Hi CairoS22,
    Follow the steps listed in the articles given below to resolve this issue:
  • When I click on the Firefox Start Page it goes to a full screen with the logo of Firefox... full page... nothing else showing... Help, please.

    Something went wrong when I was trying to figure out how to get my regular size rather than the full screen display. Cannot get any tools, options, etc. Only the logo of Firefox with the search bar... That's happened.?

    Normally the F11 key will pass you to the normal display mode (or in the display full-screen function of the current screen). Does it work?

    Mode full screen, drag your mouse point to the top must cause the toolbar area to slide down. Does it work?

    If Firefox is 'stuck' in the view full screen, the file that contains the dimensions of the window may become corrupted. You can rename the file to fix this problem, but it may also affect what bars are displayed (for example, if you are using the classic menu bar, you may need to which restart). Here's how:

    Open the settings folder (AKA Firefox profile) current Firefox help

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • (menu bar) Help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    To open the page without having access to all the foregoing, either:

    • Hold down the ALT key and press H to activate the Help menu, release the ALT key and press T to display the troubleshooting information page
    • type or paste the following text in the search box of the start menu, and press ENTER:
      firefox.exe "about:support"

    In the first table of the page, click on the view file"" button. This should launch a new window that lists the various files and folders in Windows Explorer.

    Leave this window open, switch back to Firefox and output, either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    To exit Firefox do not have access to the foregoing:

    • Hold down the ALT key and press F to activate the menu file, release the ALT key and press x to trigger an exit

    Pause while Firefox finishing its cleanup, then rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

  • I would like to know how to remove a video that replaces the logo of firefox on my site because I don't want to see it.

    I'm not a web programmer and just wish that the video that Firefox has superimposed instead of their usual logo on my homepage of the browser would leave. It seems that every time I access the Web page, replacing the simple logo. I don't want to continue to see the image in place of the logo. Is it possible that I can safely remove the overlay of video image shows two women of my homepage or have Firefox remove? I haven't watched the video and do not want to look at it, there is no point to make here. I like to keep my navigation very simple and clean interface. My computer is an old Dell PC running Windows 7 Professional, I think 32-bit.

    Thank you!

    The best way to get around that is just to create your own home page and do not use the 'default' on: homepage.
    See - How to set the home page

    You can use this UserStyle - https://userstyles.org/styles/104673/about-home-hide-snippets-and-hide-brand-logo - to hide the two sections of the about: home page House that Mozilla sends messages and videos when they feel the "need".

    Many of us have disabled the changes made to the top [brandLogo part] of the Start Page of Firefox and off advertising "excerpts" [under the reservoir of research] that Mozilla uses all the time now, so we don't see this "thing".

    If you feel adventurous, here's how to 'fix '.
    Type of topic: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Accept the message of 'dragons' to see the Advanced preferences screen. Use the search box at the top to enter the below pref.

    You can assign an empty string to stop your Firefox to retrieve "extracts" and brandLogo changes the browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateUrl pref. Right-click this pref and select Edit then clear the value as pref in the box that appears, and then click OK. Who will also disable "snippets" that appear under the container of the research on the default home page.

    Then you must open the folder of your profile, via help > Troubleshooting Information > profile folder > > folder view button. Then close Firefox.
    Your profile file open with Firefox closed (Firefox '3-bar' menu key > exit/Quit), wait two minutes, then remove the storage\moz-safe-about + House folder in the profile folder of Firefox to remove the brandLogo and stored in IndexedDB code snippets to make Firefox use the default brandLogo and a defined default code snippet.

    Restart Firefox for these changes to take effect.

    If you later change your mind about these changes, you can reset the pref browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateUrl via the context menu and Reset to retrieve the default to start to use the storage\moz-chest-fort-about + House record once again.

    Typing a wrong URL in the URL from Firefox 31.0 bar redirects me to us.yhs4 yahoo com search that displays the LAVASOFT logo. It is not the case with any of my other browsers (IE, Chrome, Opera, Safari). So this cannot be a problem ISP as shown in all current references to Firefox.
    This problem started after I uninstalled adaware from LAVASOFT. It itself instead of uninstall. Thus, it is malware behavior while LAVASOFT is pretending to protect against malware.
    Nevertheless, I would like to know how to get rid of this annoying 404 redirect hijack. My home page is about to startpage com, my default search engine is startpage com, all references to Lavasoft and adaware have been removed by subject: config and Windows registry...
    How to get rid of this spam redirect, please?

  • After putting the profile folder in the trash and delete, I reinstall Firefox and get the 'missing or inaccessible profile' and cannot use firefox.

    I started having the "it's embarrassing, impossible to find the website of your last" whenever I started Firefox. This happens even my preferences always says go to the home page. I deleted the folder of Firefox and re-installed application part. It did not work. Then, I deleted the folder 'profile' for firefox and then emptied the trash, so I can't get it back.
    Now when I try to reinstall Firefox, I can't access the new installation of Firefox because I always 'no profile folder exists or is inaccessible.

    If you return to the location of your previous profile folder (I hope that you back up your bookmarks at least?) and navigate to a level to the Firefox folder, you can find a text file called profiles.ini which always points to the folder that is now gone. To help Firefox to forget the old profile, you can try to rename or delete this file and restart Firefox. Does it work?

    Also, I read in another thread that the error you received is caused by a bug where you exit Firefox, when there is no more open pages. The solution is to quit smoking at least a page open.
