Q: Solved: Firefox AutoComplete quit working

I'm not sure this is the right forum for this.

Well, that's the problem. It had been working fine. I have Windows xp Home. In Firefox Options>Security I have a check for Remember passwords for sites. In the Privacy tab I have a check for Ask me before clearing private data. Is there some place else I should check? How can I get it to work again? Thanks, grandpaw

Preferred Solution: Solved: Firefox AutoComplete quit working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I closed Firefox and re-opened I get a blank page and no response except if I type about:config, that I can get to. Anyone else ever have this happen? Anyone know what might be causing it?

I was enjoying Firefox because when I used it SpyBot and AdAware had little to worry about, as did my antivirus.

But now when I click the Firefox icon on my desktop I get the Firefox Window, and it shows at the top right that it is searching, and at the bottom left that it is looking for start.mozilla.org, but it never finds it.

I have, more than once, tried to remove Firefox through Add and Remove, and then install Firefox again. But Firefox still won't work. I have installed using the online installer and also using my Firefox CD.

I may have installed Firefox over Firefox without first removing the first Firefox. Anyhow, after I use Add/Remove to remove Firefox, and it accordingly leaves the Add/Remove list, and I search for files having the word Firefox in them, I get about the same list that I get before I "removed" Firefox, as though there was no removal. However, when I click my Firefox desktop icon, I get the message that Firefox.exe has been changed or removed. When I search for firefox.exe, I get:
UninstallFirefox.exe in Windows
Firefox.exe-28641590.pf in Windows Prefetch
UninstallFirefox.exe-12AAD7CD.pf in Windows/Prefetch

I also used System Restore to go back to a time when Firefox was working, but that did no good. I have had Norton to a full scan, and have used Spybot and AdAware, and use SpyBlaster. I disabled Norton and SpyWareBlaster before uninstalling and reinstalling.

Hello,
  I'm ashamed that with my experience I have just continued to dig myself into a deeper hole for four days. I'll try to be as succinct as I can here in describing what's wrong, what led up to it, and what I have already done in an effort to correct things.
   My system is:
             Dell desktop XP Studio 9100 with Intel 7 processor 64 bit and 8gb of RAM  
             Windows 7 Pro
             I had been Using Firefox 28 (26 & 27 before it) Yahoo edition 1.28
             Java 7 update 51
             I regularly use CCleaner(including registry), Malwarebytes AM and Spybot S&D, all free editions.
             My firewall is Emsisoft Online Armor.
             I have been guilty of occasionally using SlimCleaner (in Autoclean mode), despite having been counseled in the past to avoid any cleaning product.  Mea culpa.
        Overall functioning has been cruising along without a hiccup for months.

A:Firefox quit, IE is the only browser working

You are new here, so you probably aren't aware that Bleeping Computer does not support or endorse the use of registry cleaners or optimizers.   To the extent that the following gets posted for those who are unaware of our stance on this issue.
 
The following was originally posted by Animal, one of our Site Administrators.
 
Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:
 
• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.
--------------------------------------------------------------
• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
 
• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
 
• Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and ma... Read more

Randomly Firefox quit working on my laptop...
I have not had internet explorer on my laptop for quite a while now, so i have absolutely no internet access at all.

I am in college so this poses a problem for me, considering online homework.

I few weeks ago my hotmail account quit working properly. I was able to see the e-mails in my inbox, but could not open them.

A few days ago I went to open Firefox and nothing happened. No hour glass icon.. nothing to let me know its even thinking about it.
I thouhgt it was because I accidently left the laptop on for 3 days while I was gone and maybe it was just slow.. but that did not solve anything.

Virus scans come back clear and everything else works just fine.

Okay, this is a pretty wierd problem. I noticed a problem with my sound while playing Half-life, it didn't sound right. I checked it out and found that only one speaker was connected. The first speaker is hooked up to the computer and then the second speaker is connected to the first by two bare wires (Negative, positive) only one of these wires was connected.

So I thought this was a pretty obvious problem with a pretty obvious solution. I put the second wire in the slot and clamped it in. Right after I did that I have absolutely no sound at all! I made sure the volume was up on windows and on the speakers and I tried the speakers on my other computer and they work there. I then plugged my headphones into the computer in question and I get no sound there either.

Did I fry something connecting that one wire while it was plugged in? This is a pretty wierd problem....

I've got a strange printer problem. Printer has been installed and working fine for at least six months. All the sudden it stopped working and does not print. I can see jobs in the queue and it says that it is printing whichever job is at the top of the list but the printer is sitting there doing nothing.

I tried updating the drivers and it did nothing for me. Next I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer. This is where it gets strange. When I reinstall the printer everything seems fine and I can successfully print the test page. But then nothing else will print. I tried skipping the test page after reinstalling the printer and then nothing prints. It all ends up in the queue but nothing prints. If I uninstall and reinstall the printer I can print the test page but nothing else after that. I've been through this about a dozen times and the behavior is consistent.

I was thinking maybe the printer has died but it will print the test page the installation program suggests printing just fine. I'm lost, can anyone help?

So here's my issue I recently installed Arkham City on my computer played it for a while, tried google chrome, gave me a corrupt profile error or something (internet still worked and was connected at the time) restarted my computer and now it's telling me there isn't an ethernet cable connected to my computer.

Here's what I tried so far:
-Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver
-Updating the driver
-Using the network troubleshooting for windows 7
-Doing a system restore before I installed the game (gave me an error saying could not complete restore)
-Currently scanning my computer in safe mode with networking (seeing if that might work, doesn't) with malewarebytes
-Unplugged and replugged the router and modem
-Checked the router on another computer to see if there's a connection (there is none)
-Checked the router to see if there is a light in the port connected to the ethernet, it's blinking at a very slow a steady pace, unlike the ones around it which are solid green lights
-Tried the ethernet cable on another computer, works fine.

So I'm at a loss, I feel like it's a software or router issue, but I'm unsure of what to try.

I have XP professional and have been using the desktop remote to remote in to my work computer for about six months from my home laptop. No problem. Worked fine. We are networked at work. I can use any printer in my building.

Last week for some unknown reason, I could not print to our "big copier" at work. I called our tech guy and he said somehow the IP address on the copier changed and we would have to change the IP address on our computer to match. Well, sometime that same week I tried to connect to my work computer from home and had an error message - the client could not establish a connection to the remote computer - the most likely causes for this error are: 1) remote connections might not be enabled at the remote computer; 2) the maximum connections at the remote computer are exceeded; 3) a network error occured. I check the IP addresses for my work computer and made sure it had not changed......it hadn't.

I can use any other computer (like my mother's) and it remotes fine. I took my laptop to work and tried it, it worked fine. Used my daughter's laptop at home and it would not remote - same error. It seems it has something to do with my internet connection at home, but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Our tech guy is dumbfounded!

I posted this, along with other posts on google forum and I never get any replies. I guess no one ever uses it??

Thanks, Joe

Hi,
we need more info. Links means which links? Links of your OWN SITES STORED IN YOUR LOCAL MACHINE? Links on REAL web pages? or shortcuts to other sites added to your browser?

Several days ago I noticed three of the icons on my desktop had changed from pictures to generic blue boxes.
A few days later I noticed the mouse wheel didn't scroll anymore. Then the right click button quit working. This is a wired, optical mouse. So I tried 2 different wireless optical mice with no change.
I've read 15, maybe 20 previous post with "right click" problems in the title and of the questions asked in those post, here are the ones I've gotten answers to..... so far:
Yes, I did a System Restore back to a time well before the problem.

Yes, I checked the Device Manager, says "working properly"

Yep, checked for updated driver, says driver up to date.

Yes, I switched right and left button functions.
(BIG MISTAKE!!! Not only did the RIGHT button still not work, but then the LEFT BUTTON didn't work
either!! Had to hit the reset button and rebooted in safe mode. Used keyboard to click on "system
restore". After that system restore the three icons came back on the desktop!! But no help for the
mouse.)

Yes, I set up a new account with Admin authority. Opened the account and tried the mouse, No change.

YES!! A RAY OF HOPE!! I tried the keyboard CONTEXT BUTTON and the MENU CAME UP!!! But when I used it on the "My Computer" icon and on the desktop, only two options showed: "Properties" and "Open Windows Explorer". And they appeared, NOT where the cursor arrow was pointing, but just above t... Read more

I am trying to help I guy that really did alot to his computer and doesn't remember all he did and when he did it, anyway.
He wanted me to help with his cdrom it would not play he has not got a burner just the cdrom.

He has 3 harddrives in his computer, why I don't no but he has windows Pro on a 5 gig drive and the he has I think a 20 gig harddrive and a 40 gig harddrive. Trying to make this short he told me that everytime he put in a disk in the cdrom an error comes up and say put a disk in or no current disk in drive, he has his cdrom on a drive G, He had the 40 gig harddrive hooked up and on the same ide line he had his cdrom. he had the harddrive as slave and the cdrom as master I told him he should change them that the cdrom should be slave (I am right on that I hope) anyway the lite comes on when you put a cd in the tray you can hear it trying to start the whirring noise and in device manager every thing is ok. I uninstalled in device manager and then rebooted thinking it might be a corrupted driver but did not help it says it is working properly. Then he said after that ,, that the cdrom quit working right when he hooked up the new 40 gig hard drive. He unplugged the new harddrive and we just kept the cdrom on that ide (by this time we had already changed the cdrom to slave) but even with just that on and the harddrive unhooked you get the same error. should we leave the 40 gig harddrive out and now try the uninstall and reboot to see if that helps or any id...

Hello, I bought the Belkin F5D5230 Cable/DSL Router yesturday cheap. Got everything up and working fine yesurday and it was great for a while. I have two computers and both were working fine. After a while though connection slowed, then slowed some more, then got below 56k lvl, and then got even worse. Going on the net became a joke and then impossible. Oddly enough I could still get on Counter-Strike and have my usual 20 ping on a chicago server. I think there is a setting some where thats clogging the router some how making it hard for it to send the speed through till it finally quit sending. I didnt try counter strike again but the router says its connected, but it has basically stopped sending data. I read in another thread someone had problems with a second comp and changed the media type on the network card to 10Base so imma try that on both computers in a second here. My computer specs are below.

1st Computer:
OS: Windows XP
2.4 Ghz Pentium 4
80gig hd

2nd computer:
OS: Windows 2000
500mhz Pentium 2
20gig hd and 40gig hd

Wouldnt be such a pain if it didnt work at all, but it actually worked for a few hours. Imma try this 10base thing and then try the reset button on the back of the router. If those dont work I will just do the direct thing on this new computer and pray one of you has ideas. I will post an edit on what happens.
 

A:[SOLVED] Belkin F5D5230 Cable/DSL Router Quit Working....

Well, I found the problem. Nets blazing again. And the little 10Base thing didnt do it.

If anyone else has had similar problems, try this out:

Go into the webbased control panel, login, then click Initial Setup, then click on Lan Services(under services), then disable DHCP Service and walla.

It started working immediately for me after that. ON both computers. I hope it helps someone out there......and I also hope it doesnt mess up on me again. I will post here again later if it does.

My wife's computer was working fine. Two nights ago, a Windows update was automatically installed. Now, it will not connect to the internet. The map shows it connected to the network. We have several other devices on our network both wired and wireless and all of them are working fine.

I was able to use system restore yesterday to roll back the update. It still did not work. However, I tried connecting to a neighbor's wireless. It said something about refreshing the adapter and then it connected to our network and was working fine. Unfortunately, when she shut down last night, the windows update was reapplied. I turned off automatic updates and tried using system restore. It did not work this time. I removed every update that was applied in the last 48 hours but I still cannot get the computer to connect to the internet. However, it does connect to the internet when I bring it up in Safe Mode.

I’m having a problem with Firefox’s autocomplete function in Google.

For Google I use Google.com//webhp?complete=0&hl=en.
This turns off Google’s automatic query & fill function, and then lets me use the autocomplete of searches I've done before.

But it stopped working yesterday for no apparent reason. Maybe I accidentally hit a certain key, I don’t know. And it will not remember any new search words that I enter either.

But if I use Firefox’s Help > Firefox Help and start entering a word in it’s search box, my previous searches show up. And it will remember new search words that I enter. IOW my data is still on the PC, just not accessible via Google like it was.

When previously transferring programs & files to a new computer I found the autocomplete form data stored in a Firefox profile file named Formhistory.sqlite. And this file is still there.

All the settings in Firefox appear to be correct. Again, autocomplete still works in Firefox Help but stopped working in Google.

Any idea how to get it working again?

A:Firefox Autocomplete

I'm having the same problem on chrome. The only thing I can imagine is that Google changed something again. I hope there's a workaround again though as that's how I get to most of the sites I go to.

(Yes I know it'd probably be easier to bookmark everything or start typing the url, but I'm more comfortable with typing in the first few letters of my favorite sites, clicking the autocomplete and hitting "I'm feeling lucky")

I have a firefox autocomplete ? it can remember what you've entered in forms on web pages, also known as text fields. After you've entered something into a form on a web page (such as a search box), the next time you visit that page, your previous entry will be available to re-use

Where do I delete everything in forms on web pages, also known as text fields. dose this inclue save passwords will be deleted also ? get back to me please
