Firefox not scrolling or scrolling very slowly when i open a new tab, this just started within the last few weeks. Ive tried reloading firefox but have the same problem.

when i am using firefox if i click on a link that opens a new tab the new page wont scroll or scrolls very slowly. this has never happened before and i have had many many tabs open at once without any problem, now if i have just two the second one gives me these problems while the first one continues to work fine.

  • New tabs are not updating the names of the sites they have loaded. When I open a new tab and load a site, the tab simply stays named "New Tab". When I open a link in a new window, it shows "Connecting..." even while its fully loaded.

    This issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

  • When I open a new tab I no longer get the search bar with all of my recent pages, how do I restore this back to the default?

    I was on demonoid and I accidentally installed some software that I didnt want to. Once this happened I noticed that on both of my browsers firefox and chrome that this search site named trovi.com has taken over as my homepage and over my new tab. I fixed the problem on chrome and I fixed the home page problem on Firefox, what I cant figure out is how to get rid of this bane when I open a new tab. All I have all of my useful sites pinned there and it is very annoying.
    I have been searching through all the options and cannot find a way to change this back to default without restoring the entire browser back to default. Which I really dont want to do. Thanks in advance
    THis is the problem
    "browser.newtab.url": "http://www.trovi.com/?gd=&ctid=CT3320418&octid=EB_ORIGINAL_CTID&ISID=M8DFF7074-5289-4613-BE92-D34E972485F9&SearchSource=69&CUI=&SSPV=&Lay=1&UM=6&UP=SP7898ACB3-917F-4B3E-99A5-29076F23E57D",

    hello, please install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

  • When I open a new tab, how can I get the curson to be on the URL line instead of in a search engine box?

    When I open a new tab I almost always I know the URL of where I want to go. Therefore I do not want my cursor to be placed in the box of a search engine upon opening the new tab. I want it to be on the address line.

    A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank).
    If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.

  • When you open a new tab, how do you change the site it goes to?

    My Daughter downloaded accidently a tool bar, Searchqu.com. I have removed the tool bar and application, and reset the homepage. However when I open a new tab it defaults to http://www.searchqu.com/, how do I change this? I have tried resetting it to default and it does not help.

    Did you try opening '''about:config''' and filtering on the url (or part of it) to see if there is a configuration variable involved.
    How did you remove the toolbar and application, did you have to go into the control panel or did an extension sim,ply uninstall..

  • When I open a new tab, an internet search option pops up that Idid not OK or install. I can't find where to get rid of it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    When I open a new tab, I just want it to be blank. I think it may be hijacked but I can't find how to delete/erase the internet search that pops up instead. It's called internet search and just has a magnifying glass as a logo.

    Clearing the cache fixed this for me. Before doing this though, I HIGHLY recommend booting into safe mode (assuming you are using Windows) and run the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware [http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php].
    UPDATE: Well...that worked for a while. That page is back. I still recommend scanning your machine if you have not yet done so.
    UPDATE 2: I've found that the application causing the issue is "Cartoonly", which you should see as an extension. You can't remove it from Firefox, you can only disable it. Search your entire computer for "Cartoonly" (even if you have ran MBAM as suggested above) and delete EVERYTHING having to do with that garbage. Your new tabs should be clean and the extension should be gone as well. :)

  • How can I set or reset the page that is loaded when I open a new tab using Ctrl t ?? by

    I recently downloaded a program that has, as an undesired additional action, apprently setup Yahoo as the page that opens by default when I open a new tab using <Ctrl> <t> (or the <+> symbol on the tab bar). This is aggravating to me, particularly as I have not been able to find a way to stop it occurring.
    I expect that it is buried somewhere in my profile, but I also have not found a way to explore or edit the contents of my profile.
    There is a JScript script file called "user" in ...\profiles\4g4vpust.default that I suspect is associated with the behaviour, but renaming it achieved nothing.
    Prior to this, my new tabs used to open as blank pages, i.e. did not load any URL and I was happy with that. How can I get back to that state?

    Did it add the freeze net assistant add-on? That add-on is known to do this. If you have that add-on you can uninstall it Firefox should revert to the default behavior.
    If you do not have that add-on, another add-on will be causing this, you can use the procedure in the following link to identify what one - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

  • When i open a new tab i want the cursor to be at the beginning of the url (it was until this latest update, now the cursor is at the end of the url)

    I have just taken the latest update to 22.0 from the last version.
    In the past when i opened up a new tab the cursor would jump to the beginning of the URL and i could start typing. Now the cursor goes to the back of the URL and i have to double click the URL to type in a new one.
    Let me try to be as clear as i can. I have had firebox set for long time so when i open a new tab google.com comes up, and google is also my home page.
    I have not installed any options for a long time either. And nothing that has to do with tabs.
    What i remember is as i opened a new tab the URL of it would turn blue and i could start typing in a new URL. Now when i open a new tab i see google.com come up in blue, then the url turns to https://www.google.com/ and the blue goes away and the cursor is at the end of the URL. I now have to double click the URL to type.

    I switched to the "about blank" and then use my home icon to get to Google.com
    It is not quit as good as it was but usable.
    I think you should add two new check boxes in options under "tabs"
    1 - When opening any new tab, put the focus of the cursor on the URL.
    2 - When opening any new tab, put the focus of the cursor on the search box.
    This will take care of the majority of people.

  • When i open a new tab, it closes 3 seconds later automatically. how can I stop this?

    When I open a new tab, I cannot view it, the tab closes automatically. I then reload the tab and it closes again after 3 seconds. How can I stop this? I never had this problem before.
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == About two weeks ago, 2nd week in June 2010

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • I have started using Roboform Lite 2.0.0, after Roboform it takes to much time to open Firefox and when i open a new tab, until the tab is fully loaded, Firefox is not responding. Please help.

    After installing Roboform 2.0.0;
    Starting Firefox started to take too much time.
    When i open a new tab, until the tab is fully loaded and Roboform realizes which website it is, Firefox does not respond.
    When i tell Roboform to fill the username and password fields in a tab, until Roboform submits Firefox does not respond.
    I mean, as if Roboform is not working background and Firefox cannot work multithread because of it. When i navigate from one tab to another, Roboform is also checking the tab and meanwhile Firefox is waiting for Roboform to finish its work.
    Please help me about this problem.

  • How do I set a specific page to open when I open a new tab in Firefox? I can open the page when initially opening Firefox, but not for subsequent tabs/pages.

    How do I set a specific page to open when I open a new tab in Firefox? I can open the page when initially opening Firefox, but not for subsequent tabs/pages.

    You can use an extension to set which page to open in a new tab:
    *NewTabURL : https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/newtaburl/
    *My Homepage: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/my-homepage/

  • When I open a new tab it does not bring up my homepage. It brings up another sites search engine page.

    When I click on the new tab button, a small cross, it opens the new tab, but displays another sites search page, not my homepage. I cannot find where to tell it to open my homepage on all new tabs that are opened from the tab bar.

    The basic Firefox build has always opened a blank page when you open a new tab.
    Maybe some add-on you installed modified that feature of Firefox which now opens all tabs in a different page. Here's what you will need to do.
    Open Firefox -> go to Help Menu -> select "Restart with Add-ons Disabled"
    Firefox will close then it will open up with just basic Firefox. The tabs will now be opening in a blank page. You can Enable the add-ons again and check if its working properly.

  • When I open a new tab, my pins do not show up, and I cannot find the square with the 9 boxes to turn it on at the top, what do I do

    When I open a new tab, the page is blank, and I cannot view my pins. I tried searching for the box with the 9 squares in it at the top of the screen to turn it back on, but it does not show up. How do I get my pins back?

    Hello,
    First go to '''Tools''' >> '''Options''' >> '''Privacy''' >> '''Firefox will''' change to '''Remember history''', then go to '''about:config''' and search for '''browser.newtab.url''' change its value to '''about:newtab'''.
