Hi there! For whatever reason, my stumbleupon toolbar will not show up in firefox. When I right-click to see if it is enabled, it isn't listed. My addons say it is installed. Any ideas?

If you are using Firefox this is the way to fix it. A manifest will embed itself in your firefox folder for reasons I don’t know. But go to C:/program files/mozilla firefox/chrome. if you see a file called m3ffxtbr.manifest go ahead and delete it. It does no damage to the functionality of firefox and completely restores your stumble toolbar"

m3ffxtbr.manifest is apparently an installer for MyWebSearch toolbar for Firefox, and seems to cause a lot of problems with different addons.

If it still doesn't show, or that file isn't there, uninstall all addons, then reinstall SU, making sure you use the latest addon at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/138?id=138

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Turn off pop up blocker


Surfing the Internet and constantly being bombarded with pop-up ads can be extremely annoying. For this reason, most computer users enable a pop-up blocker.
Occasionally, however, you run across a website that offers information that you need and it is blocked by the pop-up blocker.
When this happens you need to disable the pop-up blocker. You can disable the pop-up blocker for all websites or just for specific ones.

Launch Internet Explorer.
Click on the "Tools" drop-down menu.

Scroll down, click "Pop-up Blocker" and choose "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker."


Turn off pop-ups for specific sites by completing steps 1 and 2.
Then, instead of choosing to turn off pop-ups, choose "Pop-Up Blocker Settings."
Add sites to block or remove sites from the list that are being blocked.

Turn Off Pop-Ups Blocker in Toolbars

Even though you may have your pop-ups turned off in Internet Explorer, if you have a toolbar installed on your computer it can still block pop-ups.
The most commonly installed toolbars are the Yahoo toolbar and Google toolbar.


Click on the drop-down menu next to the pop-up blocker button to disable the pop-up blocker in the Yahoo toolbar. Select "Disable pop-up blocker."


Click the "Options" button on the Google toolbar. In "Accessories," clear the box next to the pop-up blocker option.

Can not download yahoo toolbar "Internet Explorer


Internet Explorer's Add-on Management feature lets you view, enable and disable the list of add-ons which can be loaded by Internet Explorer. Add-ons include browser helper objects, ActiveX controls, toolbar extensions and browser extensions.
To view or modify the add-ons on your computer by launching Manage Add-ons:
1. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, click Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons. 2. To disable an add-on, select it in the list in the Manage Add-ons dialog box and select the Disable radio button. 3. To enable an add-on, select it in the list in the Manage Add-ons dialog box and select the Enable radio button. 4. Click OK to confirm. Note: Disabling an add-on does not remove it from your computer. It simply prevents Internet Explorer from executing the add-on's code-it does not prevent other software from executing the add-on. If an add-on is disabled, website pages that rely on that add-on may not work as expected. For more information on Add-ons, click the "Learn more about add-ons" help link in the Manage Add-ons dialog box.

I can't remove sweetim toolbar


Yes. It's spyware, so if you had decent anti-malware protection, you wouldn't've been able to install it in the first place, but that's another story.

Please download a programme called Revo Uninstaller from:--

http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/3000-2096_4-10687648.html

Then use the "Advanced" uninstall mode. Follow the instructions and this wretched toolbar and all its hidden components will disappear.
