    Firefox continuing problems


    *Banghead
    Hi all.
    I have posted previously on my problems in respect of Firefox downloading, but not opening.

    i have just completed my 15th download of Firefox with the same problem still recurring. It downloads, however, it refuses to open.
    I have always removed everything concerning mozilla Firefox after removing the program(uninstalling).
    However, it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever, upon clicking the Firefox, nothing happens.

    I was just wondering if there was anyone that could help me find out what is causing this problem.

    In anticipation, thanks.*Think

    :)

    firefox and IE will cause problems?

    could there be any reasonable explanation why firefox and ie would cause problems?

    oh, and when the machine crashes it is the blue screen of death and when windows recovers it suggests bios update. this is a machine that hasnt been upgraded driver wise or bios wise, yet they insist it is firefox. give me a break.

    shuts down due to error? sounds like you got to reinstall Firefox, and if the problem continues reinstal flash player too

    Firefox continuing problems

    FireFox


    Hi:

    In addition to the great advice already offered....

    ...Most problems with Firefox originate in the user's profile, not in the program itself.

    A specific suggestion for the issue you report:

    Firefox - Profile in Use

    Then, there is a logical sequence for Firefox diagnostics, which (as already suggested) generally starts with Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode):

    Firefox - Standard Diagnostic

    or
    Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems


    Resetting Firefox (as already suggested) is certainly a reasonable option, but there are other, less "destructive" steps one might consider first.
    There are also more drastic steps, such as creating a new profile. This is sometimes the best way to get back up and running, if the existing profile is highly corrupted.

    Please let us know if you need more help.

    Thanks,
    MM
