Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling FF ! Also have you ran any antivirus / antimalware programs, sometimes unistalling your addons in FF one by one and restarting FF after each uninstall to find out whether it might be one of your addons giving you the problem !

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !

Try running Firefox in Safe Mode and see if you still have problems.

Have you got ccleaner installed if not download it from here http://www.piriform.com/ after installation click analyse then click run cleaner it will help empty your FF cache for you but make sure you save any favourite sites you may have in your browser !

Are you getting a pop up window saying :

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system !
If so try this link http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefo...+not+responding

Hope this helps !

Lol, I thought I was the only one who had this problem :flowers:

I had this exact problem when firefox 3.5.5 came out, I spent a few days trying to figure out exactly what was going on,
in the end, my brother (who works at a computer shop where they clean computers) told me to try a program called registry easy
I downloaded it and tried it, and my firefox was fixed :thumbsup: i still dont know exactly what the problem was, but it got fixed anyway

If you want to try my solution, its free at http://www.regeasycleaner.com/

Hope this helps
