Skip to comments.Will you help me with Mozilla Firefox, please? [Vanity]

I have seen discussions of folks who know about Mozilla Firefox, and I hope some of you will help me, keeping in mind that I am not very well versed in computer related matters, but my son is. But he is stumped, as well.
I use Mozilla Firefox as my search engine. I have the moderate SafeSearch feature on.
There are a number of web pages that it pulls up, but when I click the item on the search page, everything that I have pulled up on the internet disappears. Nothing else. Any Word or Excel documents or anything else remains okay.
For example, I try to pull up the Rip Off Report. Firefox pull up the item on the page, but when I click on the website, the internet items just disappear. As a result, there are a number of websites I can't use.
Will you please give me some advice? I don't know enough about settings or other features to know what to do.
Thank you. Freepers are the best.
"I don't understand what you are talking about."
Sorry. This is the best I know how to explain.
He is using the google box on Firefox for searching, but when he clicks on a link in a search, the browser crashes.
Firefox isn't a search engine, it is a browser. I'm using it right now. I've never had a problem with the internet disappearing. If I ever do, I will call Al Gore to complain.

Yes, one of my investment sites kicks me off because of Firefox and they told me their system did not allow Firefox. As soon as I mentioned it, they knew about the problem with Firefox. I have to use Internet Explorer on their site.
Perhaps it is the company that is incompatible and not your computer.

Thank you for your help in clarifying this.
You broke the internet.

Thank you for this. May have to switch browers entirely.
It took me a minute to decode it. ;O)

Sorry. Do you suppose Al Gore warrantees it?
In the upper right corner you will see a "G" in a box. "G" is for Google.
Click on the "G" and a drop-down will appear with other Icons to click on, etc.
I suggest you stick with Google Search Engine as you learn.
I prefer Firefox but sometimes I have to use Internet Explorer.
Actually, I-E gives me no end of grief -- "error" "send report" then kicks me off the internet in the most irritating places (eg. just when I'm completing my order at Amazon.com). I probably need to reformat but I haven't had time.

Thank you for your guidance.
Browser sniffer scripts are very old hat, meant to ensure that the user supports scripts that include CCS and Layers. The script used to launch an alert box telling you to update your browser or install both IE and Netscape.
The sit is funky and contains crappy code. A GUI nightmare.
Either that or Bill is paying companies off to block Fire Fox.
Thank you. I will also pass your guidance on to my son.
As I said, Freepers are the best.
Thanks. I just tried it, and it popped off
