Lost all my Firefox bookmarks after using MacKeeper to remove an "old" version of Firefox


Honestly I'm not sure they are retrievable if they've been deleted but hopefully someone else might be able to offer something. Here is what I can offer though, in the future save your bookmarks as a json file and they'll always be safe. Just continue to save as you update them. This is how I was able to transfer mine between laptops when I bought my Acer 5 years ago and I still have it on my flash disc.

Runs slow,23000error to many downloads and a lot more


what's the 23000 error and when and where are you getting it?

Sounds like you might have a virus or infection. Try booting up into Safe Mode then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Open your internet browser then download and install MalwareBytes then run a Quick Scan.


Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.



If after the above steps Mozilla Firefox is not working correctly then download and reinstall it. Don't delete or uninstall the current one yourself or you'll lose your bookmarks and settings. Let the system take care of downloading and uninstalling it so it will preserve your settings and bookmarks. Also try some of the other browsers.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

Google ghrome keeps freezing on face book why?


Try another browser or go download and reinstall Google Chrome. Don't delete the chrome you already have installed otherwise you will lose your bookmarks and settings. Just download and install it again and let the system handle upgrading and saving your settings.

Error 324


Which browser are you using when you get this error? Internet Explorer? Mozilla Firefox? Opera? Google Chrome?

Maybe you should just go download and install the browser again. If you go the the browser's site and download and install you will not lose any of your settings, bookmarks, history, etc. If you uninstall it yourself then you will lose everything associated with the browser.

How do I reinstall Mozilla toolbar, please ?


well a tool bar isn't somethign that you just reinstall. most likely you just have if turned off.

Try going to view, then toolbars, and check which ones have a check mark next to them. you almost always want the navigation, and most people like having their bookmarks there also.

I've had my pc rebooted,and when i want to go on a specific site,i can't open internet explorer.how do i reinstal internet explorer?


dear friend if you are using internet explorer just give a try to mozilla firefox once.
and if you still need internet explorer i think you might be using windows XP.
Click Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > then click on Add remove windows components > search for "Internet Explorer" it will have a tick mark in front of it. now "Untick" (unselect) it and press Next this will uninstall your internet explorer from your windows. now reboot your Computer.

now you have to install the internet explorer for that you have to do the process again

Click Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > then click on Add remove windows components > search for "Internet Explorer" it will have a no tick mark in front of it. now "Tick" (select) it and press Next this will install your internet explorer to your windows. now reboot your Computer.

now your internet explorer will work as a new one but with older bookmarks and settings.
try using Firefox once
and dont forget to rate my suggestion

Thanks

With the new IE8 and the newest version of yahoo toolbar IM un-able to save new pages to bookmarks. when i try to save a new page my computer freezes/locks and I must shut the computer down to closes tabs....


There must be a bug in their new toolbar...  until they fix the bug, try delicious bookmarks, an free online bookmarking service that stores and protects your bookmarks online so you can access and organize them from any computer (and it has a toolbar):
