Opening additional tabs, the text in the tabs goes to the Eastern charicters, why?

The opening of Fire Fox all's well until I opened an additional tab. Then the text in the tabs replaces, or is replaced by what appears to be the Oriental characters.

  • How can I change the web page by default when I open additional tabs?

    My home page is set to the default normal page but when I open additional tabs a Yahoo page opens and I don't use it and don't want to do anything with it. I used to get the search page Google/MOY. This only happens when I open additional tabs.

    So, how to set the page that opens when I open additional tabs?

    Thank you!

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste newtab and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference browser.newtab.url and enter your favorite page:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    Press Ctrl + t to open a new tab and check that it worked. Fixed?

    Some traps:

    If Firefox will not let you change this setting: you can have what is called SearchProtect on your system.

    Firefox if allows you to save your changes, but he doesn't know: one of your extensions may be the substitution of her. You can consult, disable and/or remove extensions on page modules. Either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then take a critical look at the list to the right. (It is possible, that you have a bunch of shit with something free that you recently downloaded).

    If the modification works during your session, but during the next startup is leads to: you could have a user.js file in your personal settings Firefox (your Firefox profile folder). This article describes how to track down and delete the file: How to fix preferences that will not save.

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that disables certain parameters, disables most Add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. Please follow the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem.

  • I can not open additional tabs

    I open Firefox and everything I am allowed to access this page. If I click on the tab to open that, nothing happens. I went to the page options to look at the configuration of the tab and everything seems fine. With what is happening, I am only able to look at a single page. I can't even open another internet page.

  • Additional tabs will not open when I click on the +.

    When I open Firefox I get a page initial, but cannot open additional tabs when I click on the '+' to open an additional tab. I have Firefox 30.

    You have all "Community Toolbar' extensions or other modules leads? These seem to be incompatible with Firefox 30 somehow.

    You can check and disable the extensions on page modules. Either:

    • Command + shift + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, when in doubt, turn off.

    Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    What helps with the button "+"? If so, you can name the specific extension that caused the problem?

    You can also see the Plugins page modules. You can never use 'activate' to disable plugins that you do not usually use.

  • is it possible to STOP firefox open a tab to perform a check of plugin, everytime I open the browser? I LIKE the version I have and find the additional delay caused by this to be quite frustrating

    as stated in my opening 'Summary' sentence/question...i'm becomes more and more annoyed by an additional tab (plug-in check) opening whenever I open firefox... I have plug-in versions that I WANT and I DON'T want or don't need to push me to update or to change them whenever I opened a window of browser... I've searched and searched and so far I have found no way to prevent this and was really hoping that someone could provide me with firefox a method to stop intrusive loading page again and again...

    I have uninstalled Viewpoint Media Player, that fixed my problem with tab plugincheck still of the opening. Viewpoint Media Player is responsible for the plugin called "MetaStream 3 Plugin r4", and I think this plugin is the outbreak of Firefox to open the plugincheck page. It is not enough to disable the plugin, it must be uninstalled.

    Since it seems that you do not have the "Plugin for MetaStream 3', it may be that some other plugin is at the origin tab plugincheck opened pop. Try to go to (menu) tools-> Add-ons-> Plugins. See the list of plugins and see if any of them have an icon of red warning next to them. If one of the plugins has a red warning icon, it may be responsible for the outbreak of the opening of the plugin tab. Try to uninstall this plugin, or upgrade to a newer version.
