  • When i open firefox amazon appears in the search bar which i can't delete

    every time i open firefox amazon appears in the search window and i can't delete it.
    why this has happened i don't know but it means ican't use firefiox as my search engine

    Use the search bar to select Google as the search engine, it should then be used in all the searches including the location bar and the firefox start page.
    * Navigate to the start page by key into the location bar ''about:home'' an hitting the Return key.
    Thanks for including your troubleshooting information. You have SearchDial that is probably part of your problem, some users consider that unwanted software or even malware. You also have an Amazon addon installed. There is also a ''user.js'' file likely created by search dial to modify your preferences.
    '' Add to Amazon Wish List Button 1.10 ([email protected])
    MySearchDial 9.5.5.1 ({ad9a41d2-9a49-4fa6-a79e-71a0785364c8}) ''
    First uninstall what you can. <br />
    Use the addons page ''about:addons'' to uninstall unwanted addons, then also check your Windows Control Panel and uninstall any unwanted programs. Searching by date will help you find bundled software.
    Second scan with multiple and up to date tools <br />
    You need multiple tools because each finds some but not all problems.
    Thirdly use the Search reset tool & review how Firefox works. <br />
    You may also need to check for corrupted shortcuts and ''user.js'' file entries if the above reactions did not deal with them.
    Post back to say what you have done and how you got on.

    '''General Malware removal advice'''
    Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
    You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

    * [http://www.kaspersky.com/security-scan Kaspersky Free security scan]
    You need to use multiple and up-to-date tools as they will not all pick up the same things.
    [http://windows.microsoft.com/MSE Microsoft Security Essentials] is a good FREE permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
    Further information can be found in the [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware]] article. Note the suggestion to use the Search Reset addon after removing the malware.
    Hopefully any malware will be easily detected and removed. I would not suggest you try any manual hacks or edits of the Windows registry. (Once rogue files are removed any residual registry entry will not normally do any harm.)

  • When opening a new tab how do I set the cursor to appear in the search bar?

    New tab search

    You only get the cursor in the search bar if you open the built-in about:home page.<br />
    For other websites you need an extension.

  • I keep getting the "uTorrentcontrol V2 cutomized web search" appear in the search bar everytime I start a new page. How do I get rid of this message.

    '''bold text'''This only started to happen when I upgraded to Firefox Version 23.

    Use the search reset tool and delete a possible user.js file, to revert a possible hijacking of the browser.

  • I have all tabs set to open with Google search, but when I open a new tab and start typing, the letters appear in the address bar and not the Google search bar. It didn't used to be like this!

    Firefox 9.01; Windows 7 64 bit;
    One of my set of home pages is the basic Google search page. When I open this, I can immediately start typing and the words appear in the Google search box.
    If however I open a new tab (white cross far right of tab bar) and start typing, the words appear in the address bar, not in the Google search box. Of course once I click in the search box I can carry on: but I'd like to make it start there as it does with the homepage.

    If you want a specific webpage (like the Google page) to always open when you open a New Tab, you can use the following add-on to Open New Tabs with your Favorite Pages:
    -> NewTabURL 2.2.3
    * https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/newtaburl/
    * NewTabURL will not work until you set the page that you want to open in the Options for it.
    * click Add-ons > Extensions, click Options next to NewTabURL.
    Check and tell if its working.

    It is else it would not have been able to be selected to import.
    The simple fact that it shows up in iTunes Search means it is in the iTune library.
    It is a bug where some imports do not show up in the iTunes library (but they usually show up in Recently Imported playlist) until a restart of iTunes, which usually fixes it.

  • How do I get rid of the search bar that appeared at the top of my computer screen when I down loaded firefox?

    The search bar stays at the top of my computer screen at all times. It runs the full lengh of the screen, has the mozilla logo on the far left then the search bar and a facebook, Wikipedia, youtube and amazon icon.

    Can you post a screenshot?

  • Why do google search results reset to match the search bar terms when i use the back button?

    Since the update to FF 23, the list of Google search results clears and the on-page search box is reset to match the address bar search box when I hit the back button to re-view the results list after checking a result.
    To see this issue for yourself, set your search provider to Google and make sure Instant is on. Type a search term into the search bar and press enter. A google page appears with your results list. Now, change your search terms or conduct a new search directly from the google page (without using the FF search bar). Click on the first result in the search list, then click the back button to return to the search results so you can check a differest result. As FF goes back to the google page, it will reset the on-page search box to match the FF search bar (although you were no longer on this search) and all search results will disappear, replaced by the message "Press enter to search". Pressing enter reconducts your old search, not the one you were on.
    This is incredibly maddening since searching for something requires frequent use of the back button to check through the list of search results, and then frequently trying the search again with slightly different terms. Although it sounds like a Google issue, it did not occur on the old firefox and has me wanting to revert. I tried to revert to the old search function via the "keyword search" addon, but this did not fix my issue. Is there a way to force FF to go back to the actual google search page I was just on instead of conducting a new google search from the FF search box when I hit the back button?

    In Firefox 23 versions and later the keyword.URL pref is no longer supported and it is no longer possible to specify the search engine for the location bar via the keyword.URL pref.<br />
    The search engine that is used on the location bar and on the about:home page is the search engine that is selected in the search Bar on the Navigation Toolbar.<br />
    Current Firefox versions do not update the about:home home page until you refresh the page (future versions will do this automatically without a refresh) and that is what happens if you use the Back key.
    You can install the Keyword Search extension to specify with search engine to use for the location bar and which search engine to use for the about:home page via the Options/Preferences windows of this extension, accessible via the about:addons page.

  • When i type into the search bar on safari, it comes up with a yahoo or bing search instead of google like it normally would do

    I've had my macbook pro for about 2 years and any time i would type into the search bar of safari it would always come up with a google search. recently it is coming up with a yahoo or bing search and not google. my settings for safari have it set to google as the default search engine so I'm not sure why this is happening. Can anyone help me fix this?

    When you go to search something in your search bar , and you click in the search bar at the top , a drop down menu should appear when it gives you suggestions on smart search right ? , well within those list of suggestions in the search bar their should be a little magnifying glass icon in the corner , click on that and another drop down box will appear, then you can choose your search engine preference e.g. bing , google , yahoo etc. click on your preference and it will use that search engine when you search in your search bar. Hope this helped.

  • How do I remove the search bar that continues to reappear no matter how many times I manually remove it?

    For a short while now the search bar has been appearing on my Firefox browser. I don't want it there and removing it using the 'custom' settings when I click in a blank area in my browser does not work, it keeps coming back along with the 'bookmarks' button.
    No, there is nothing in my Add/Remove programs that resembles the search bar in any way, shape or form. I've already checked again and again, it's simply not there and not an option.
    Yes, I've checked if perhaps it were one of the plugins I use and that is not the case. I've removed all the plugins to check and it still appears.
    I don't want this bar there, it's annoying and I want it gone. No there are no options to remove it in its options. I don't care about how useful other people say it is, I find it annoying. Every time I open Firefox it's there...I want it gone.
    Refer to screenshot: http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t254/MasakoTomoe/untitled-2.jpg
    So, how do I get rid of it?

    Seems that may have worked and that's great, thank you. But now I have another problem which seems to be as persistent as the search bar has been.
    Now when I edit the bar and position of the buttons some of those buttons disappear when I click Ok in the customization, but reappear when I reopen the customization settings.
    Why is that? When I put a space in between some of the buttons the buttons near the space will disappear and leave a blank space where it should be.
    I'm beginning to be rather annoyed with this Firefox Beta to say the least and am considering returning to the version before it. Whatever I do now as far as customizing is concerned of the toolbar is reset every time I reopen Firefox. The buttons are no longer where I had set them up, the address bar is stretched to it's maximum, the Menu Bar is back the far left edge, buttons are missing that I had put there, and buttons I had removed are returned.
    :| I know it may seem insignificant to some people but it annoys the crap out of me. I understand this is a beta and if there is no solution then I perhaps will use the earlier version for a while.
    Thanks for your input by they way, it's much appreciated.

  • How do I add a search engine to the search bar from a hard disk file?

    I want to add a search engine to the search bar from an XML file on my hard disk. "Manage Search Engines" from the search bar drop down list only appears to allow adding search engines from web sites.
    Thanks.

    Hmmm. This didn't work. I even re-booted, and Firefox still doesn't show the search engine.
    It was actually an update to an earlier engine, and I foolishly removed the old version rather than just updating it.
    Is there anything elsewhere (eg. the registry) that might be preventing this?

  • How can I get the search bar for mp3 downloader pro

    I have the mp3 downloader pro but the search bar is not their, someone told me that I had to type something in the URL to get it but don't know what it is. Can anyone help me?

    In Firefox 3.6 on Windows you can hide the menu bar via "View > Toolbars" or via the right click context menu on a toolbar.
    Press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the menu bar.
    Go to "View > Toolbars" or right-click the menu bar or press Alt+V T to select which toolbars to show or hide.
    See also [[Menu bar is missing]]
    * If the menu bar is hidden then press and hold the Alt key down, that should make the Menu bar appear (Firefox 3.6 on Windows) (see [[Menu bar is missing]]).
    * Make sure that you have the ''Navigation Toolbar'' and other toolbars visible: View > Toolbars .
    * If items are missing then see if you can find them in the View > Toolbars > Customize window.
    * If you see the item in the Customize window then drag it back from the Customize window to the Navigation toolbar.
    * If you do not see that item then click the Restore Default Set button in the View > Toolbars > Customize window.

  • Hi - When I go into Contacts and type a letter in the search bar to get to last names that begin with that letter I get a list of random names that don't correlate to the letter. My settings are fine.  Help ?

    Hi. When I go into my contacts and type a letter in the saerch bar to get to a list of last names that begin with that letter I get a list of random names that don't begin or end with the letter.  My Settings appear fine.  Any insights would be greatly appreciated.  Cheers Bill

    The search bar is not designed to take you to names beginning with the letter you put in. If you want to do that, use the letters down the side. In the search bar, the device will return results for all contacts that have that have that letter in them. If you type a couple of letters of the name, you'll find what you want faster. Once you get used to how it works, it's quite efficient.
    Best of luck.
