How do I stop firefox from sending a message or note that " do I want this program to change my computer?" It changes some of the settings in my computer; like the color of my task bar changed and other settings too.

Before nothing happened until just recently when box messages would appear and tell me to click "yes or no" if I want the program to change my laptop. I clicked "No", but sometimes it didn't work, and when it didn't work. When it failed, fire fox changed some of the settings in my laptop. For example, the task bar's color would be changed. Also, it seemed as if fire fox had changed some of the settings into an old version. Yesterday I restarted my laptop, and it just went back to normal like nothing happened. But, for a few minutes later, the box will appear and you have to click yes or no. I clicked the "x" button, and it just changed automatically.

Check that you do not run Firefox as Administrator.<br />
Right-click the Firefox desktop shortcut and choose "Properties".<br />
In the Compatibility tab, make sure that Privilege Level: "Run this program as Administrator" is not selected.<br />
You also need to check the Properties of the firefox.exe program in the Firefox program directory.<br />

    Sometimes when I click on a link on Google or Yahoo search results I end up on some stupid tazinga page. how do I block this page from appearing?

    Do a malware check with some malware scan programs.<br />
    You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.<br />
    Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.<br />

  • How do I stop Firefox from thinking it crashed and doing a recovery when forced to use Windows Task manager to close a bad URL that I never want to go back to?

    Long question, I know :~) There are web sites that I may visit that will not allow me to exit the site, so I use Alt-Ctrl-Del in Windows to start the Task Manager and force the site to close by ending the program. The new version of Firefox (31.0) thinks that Firefox crashed and send me right back to the source of my problem.
    Your documentation for this process is as follows:
    After a crash
    Due to unexpected issues such as problems with a website, software errors, or an accidental loss of power, Firefox may unexpectedly close. In these situations, Firefox can restore the pages that you were visiting when it is restarted. Firefox will automatically restore your previous session, the first time you launch it after a crash.
    If Firefox crashes a second time, the Restore Session (i.e. "Well, this is embarrassing") page will appear when you next launch Firefox.
    ...and this is what I found trying to stop this process. Next, when I am forced to use Task Manager to close Firefox a second time to stop a badware site, then the 'Well this is embarrassing' dialog appears and I am finally safely away from the URL.
    I do not want Firefox automatically sending me back to a problem site.
    Thank you for any procedure you can suggest to stop Firefox from restoring problem web pages, Art Clapton

    I am unwilling to attempt navigation away from these sites. The pop-ups that occur on the attempt to leave a site or to close the browser are exit traps offering incentive to stay.
    Once upon a time, when the internet was less dangerous, I would be willing to close the exit pop-ups. Now, after twice being infected with malware trying to close the pop-ups, I now force close whichever browser I am using.
    Recently, I clicked on the red X to close one pop-up, and it installed a trojan that I had to pay to be removed. When I clicked on 'Leave' in another exit pop, it didn't exit and it turned out I was giving permission to run a script file. Now that criminals have learned these exit pop-ups can be used to force a click action, the sites using them have become dangerous.
    If I force the browser to close using Task manager, Please tell me how to stop FireFox from sending me directly back to the same site because it mistakenly believes it crashed when it did not. I forced it to close because I was on a site that had taken control of my browser and was not allowing me to leave the site.
    No other browser sends me back to the potentially dangerous sites. I prefer Firefox, but the new version must have a setting that allows me to get safely away from a problem site?

  • I do not want to upgrade to 7.0, I am attending online college and the upgraded version does not work with my school. How can I stop Firefox from upgrading? I have to keep uninstalling the upgrade and installing the old one.

    It's not a good idea to allow websites to redirect to another site until you know for sure the original site is trustworthy.
    But if you still want to do it (again not a good idea).
    Tools>Options>Advanced>General - In Accessibility, uncheck "warn me when web sites try to redirect..." option.

    Sounds like a dose of search redirect malware or a redirect virus.

  • How do I stop Firefox from grabbing my saved images and coverting them to Firefox?

    I am working on images in Dreamweaver and Adobe Photoshop, and when I try to save them, Firefox coverts them into Firefox images with a Firefox icon and then I can't edit them properly in Photoshop or Dreamweaver. How do I stop Firefox from grabbing my saved images? in English

    I will try that, but it's pretty time consuming to have to check that for each of my images. I am a web designer and I work with a lot of images.
    Is there any way to set that globally for all of my saved images?

  • How do I stop firefox from automatically placing the cursor in a textbox?

    How do I stop Firefox from automatically placing the cursor in a text box? On certain pages such as Google.com the cursor will be moved to the search text box automatically after a couple seconds from the page loading. So I'll be typing in the address bar or something and then half of what I am typing in the address bar becomes cut off and starts being entered in the Google.com text box for search. The same happens on Facebook.com and the cursor is automatically moved to the Status Update text box. I assume this is a built in "feature" of the web page, but it's damn annoying. Especially when I start typing in my status update box on Facebook before the page completely loads and then halfway through typing (once the page is done loading) my cursor is moved to the starting position of the text area and my text is cut off.
    Just the be clear the actual mouse pointer isn't being moved, just the prompt for entering text.
    How can this be stopped?
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == Started since I can remember

    This problem has grown worse over the last couple of years. I use Firefox on Mac and Windows. I consider this problem to be a bug. Here's why: Event Driven interfaces, e.g., OSX and Windows, are never supposed to change typing-cursor focus WHILE SOMEONE'S TYPING!!!
    Firefox allows websites to change focus WHILE USERS TYPE!
    Hey, sorry for the caps, but I haven't used those for awhile and that's kind of fun. But really, more and more websites steal typing-cursor focus WHILE USERS TYPE.
    Efff them, but really, Eff Firefox for allowing this.
    It's almost like a symptom of our hyper scattered age where our attention jumps here and there.
    But really... I love Firefox, some of my best friends are Firefox, they're good people, don't get me wrong, but damn it, WHEN SOMEONE IS TYPING THE UNASSAILABLE RULE OF EVENT DRIVEN DESIGN IS NOTHING ELSE SHOULD CHANGE FOCUS WHILE SOMEONE IS TYPING!!!!
    FIX THIS PLEASE.
    Oh, I just ran out of capital letters. :) :) :)

  • How do I stop Firefox from crashing? It crashes at various times, not when loading any specific pages.

    My crash problem has been going on for week, now. I tried uninstalling FF and reinstalling it. I hoped that would fix the problem, but it didn't. Crashes occur randomly, when loading or reloading pages but they are NOT specific pages. The Report ID listed below is just 1 of several reports from the past week.

    I am unwilling to attempt navigation away from these sites. The pop-ups that occur on the attempt to leave a site or to close the browser are exit traps offering incentive to stay.

  • How do I stop Firefox from auto-focusing on text boxes?

    How do I stop Firefox from auto-focusing on text boxes? Sometimes as a page is loading, I scroll down the page...only to have the page jump back to where there is a text box, with a blinking cursor, after the page is finished loading. It is an annoying feature and I want to turn it off.

    Some pages use an onload event to set the focus to a text area or search field.
    You can try NoScript to see if that blocks it.

  • How do I stop Firefox from playing video after I navigate from the page or leave Firefox?

    Simple and annoying. . Extremely frustrating issue with Firefox for Android. ..
    I watch a YouTube video or any flash video. . And after I hit play, the ONLY way to stop it is to hit pause or let it play to the end or close the tab. .
    It will NOT automatically stop if I open another tab. or if I navigate from Firefox. .
    I feel this is a very basic feature. Did I set something up that was wrong?
    Can I ask two questions?
    I have another extremely annoying and frustrating problem with Firefox for Android.
    The "top" (if you pull down the tabs) search bar DOES NOT allow my stock Samsung keyboard to auto space. . Thus instead of typing
    "How do I stop Firefox from playing video after I navigate from the page or leave Firefox?"
    I'll type in
    "HowdoIstopFirefoxfromplayingvideoafterInavigatefromthepageorleaveFirefox?"
    Unless I manually got the space bar.
    Using a recently factory data reset Samsung Galaxy s4 active.. android 4.2.2 and stock Samsung keyboard ... Firefox 34.0.1
    Thanks in advanced.
    Ps
    I was a hardcore xscope user for years and just recently gave in to Firefox when i lost all my bookmarks due to a forced factory data reset. .

    I'm using a different keyboard which works fine in the most top search bar...
    I cannot believe that it's not a feature.
    What if I was watching a video and wanted to shut it off quickly? I'll have to hit back? Wait for the previous screen to load then hit the power button?
    Please tell me that feature ids soon to come

  • How do I stop Firefox from coming to the front automatically?

    This happens when Firefox is open in the back ground to a web site and I am working in another program in the foreground. If the web site that is open sends me a message (eg., a new email or message from someone), Firefox automatically comes to the front, interrupting whatever I am doing in the other program (eg., Word).

    Did you remove iTunes Helper from your Login Items?
    If not, you need to remove it from the Login iTunes. Checking an item in your Login Items list hides the item during startup, it doesn't turn it off or not checking the item doesn't turn it off. You need to remove it from your Login Items list if not removed.
