Computer Browser Issues
« on: January 22, 2013, 03:37:06 pm »
Suddenly... and I mean 'today', I am noticing some things about my desktop activities are different. Maybe it's just the browser window.

I use Firefox. I notice an extra 'search' tab that always exists. A tab that has search capabilities. Is this new to Firefox? How do I turn it off? I don't like it all especially if I already have a google search box to the side of the web address.

Next, my web browser is starting to open up an ad to the right side of the screen. About a 1 inch wide full height of the browser. That's starting to get irritating. How do I turn that off?

Finally my mouse is different. I now seem to have to left click to get it to move. It sometimes becomes stagnate in the window I'm typing in or hovered over. How do I change that to the way it was before? I just want control whenever I start to move the mouse. Not click and then move.

Arghhhhhh

Phucking piece of bastige iceholes.

I gave up on FF a couple of years ago for the very same reasons you are describing. There is something under the hood that automatically updates and adds new tool bars and other junk and this is after I set Update to manual only. So, can't really give you any tips as FF went the way of the Dinosaur for me. Also, FF was and most likely still is....a CPU hog. It would get sluggish very fast. Pages would take for ever to load.

Chrome isn't perfect, but for me it's doing the job and I really haven't had many issues with it since switching over to them.
