I'm trying to fix a problem viewing Yahoo and when I went to disable all plugins and clear everything stored I noticed a few surprising things
1) All pages still appear the same even with add-ons such as Adblock plus disabled. Are they disabled? I restarted Firefox after disabling them.
They can't possibly be disabled because on this very page Ghostery is blocking things
2) Even though I cleared "Browsing and download history" and had "everything" chosen for the time, I still have in the address bar past sites I have visited. I noticed each time I clear the history and close Firefox, it doesn't completely close and I need to use the task manager to end the process before closing. Also the clearing of data happens instantaneously so this is suspicious. Am I doing something wrong?
UPDATE: I tried restarting Firefox in safe mode and it appears the add-ons were successfully disabled. For some reason Yahoo still displays incorrectly in Fire Fox (the orange boxes I put there to hide my e-mail =) )
vs Internet Explorer
