On a similar though not the same theme as another questioner: I just updated firefox to version 126.96.36.199 having received an automatic prompt to do so. It installed correctly, but is trying to find google.co.uk (my previous Firefox start), but unsuccessfully. I can't even use the address bar to insert another web address. It just goes on searching for google. I then tried removing Firefox, re-installing and rebooting, but still the same has happened..so back to Internet Explorer, which I didn't want to use as my default browser where "vulnerability detected" messages appear every time I use it (despite Panda 2008 Antivirus and automatic up-dates). Can anyone solve the Firefox mystery? Thanks in advance, since I will be away till next Tuesday.
