Windows 7: GIS - Restore Image View

Well maybe something in your profile is the issue as it seems that it only happened after a relaunch?

What is your search engine?

Try encrypted google search and set as default. You can get it from that site I linked or use this addon:

Add to Search Bar :: Add-ons for Firefox

If you navigate to encrypted dot google dot com and right click in the search box you get the option to add to search bar. Add and then click again to add a description and keyword. The keyword needed is g

You can than set as default search engine and disable the addon. See if that makes any difference. I'm not sure that it will but it's how mine is setup.

Also which version of Cyberfox did you use? There are 32bit and 64bit versions for different graphics cards. Maybe using the wrong version makes a difference.

Just a note to say that I looked at QuickJava addon. I wonder what would happen if you disabled it and cleared cookies and cache then relaunched Cyberfox.

Another test:

Maybe copy your Cyberfox shortcut or create a new one and set properties like this:
GIS - Restore Image View-cyberfox-safe-mode-properties.jpg
If you are using 32bit Cyberfox you'd need to modify paths as below.

Target:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Cyberfox\Cyberfox.exe" -safe-mode

Start in:...
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Cyberfox"

/use the modified shortcut to launch Cyberfox and see if the issue remains.

I backed everything up again, then imported only the things which would have been very difficult to recreate from scratch. So far so good.

It's funny that disabling all extensions wouldn't have reset whatever was causing the problem. I didn't really have a ton of them. I also stuck with the generic theme this time around.

I have switched browsers from Firefox to Pale Moon to Waterfox to Cyberfox and carried the same profile all the way along. It is odd that the problem did not immediately appear after one of those changes if that was the problem. Maybe this will end up in the "who knows?" category once all is said and done, assuming things don't go bad again.

Just a note to say that Cyberfox 51.0.2 has been released but it breaks installed search engines. You can add them back but if you were going to update maybe wait for a fix.

I reinstalled from scratch today and that's the version I have. If by "installed search engines" you mean the Search bar, I almost never use it.

Remember the good old days when browsers got updated once a year or so and they actually tested things in advance? I must be getting old.

I meant the list of default search engines included in Cyberfox gets broken apparently by a language pask update that was included. Default search engine is the one you set and use for searches from the omnibox or highlight some text and right click to see options.

Usually I use Encryted Google but if I want some privacy I'll switch to another search engine.

Additional search engines - 8pecxstudios Support Forums

The default ones included in Cyberfox are supposed to be these:

Cyberfox 51.0.3 released with fixes.

Hooray! Your Cyberfox is up to date >> Cyberfox

Fixed: Search engines missing due to en-US language pack overriding the default search engines.

I got the same update this morning. In my case, I was relieved it didn't break anything as my GIS problem appears to be solved. Thanks for the heads up and for all your help. I think fixing the profile issues has taken care of me. I'm trying to remember, but I think I have been reusing that profile since the WinXP days.
