You don't say which version of "Firefox you are using. The RC's have been a bit buggy at times.

Easiest solution is to get a fresh download and reinstall. :thumbsup:

Then if you still having a problem, it lies someplace else.

You should probably backup a copy of your bookmarks before you remove FireFox.

As long as you don't go into your Application Data file, and delete the profile folder, you should be OK.
Wouldn't hurt to do it, but it shouldn't be necessary.

Sorry Professional, can't help you, I don't use FireFox.

tg1911: You're right. To test, I went in and uninstalled and installed Firefox again.

Now I am learning something...

Back to you Professional.

Yeah if you leave the profile folder alone, you won't loose any of your preferences.
