I updated yesterday morning and so far have had no problems. One thing to note is that I didn't use the automatic updater, and rather downloaded the setup files for the new version and did a clean install (uninstall the old version and installed the new).
This is something anyone might try if having problems with the update. Also, as nosnhoj#3
has pointed out, problems can be caused by extensions that won't update. Try going to Tools>Extensions and click on Find Updates
Firefox also has its own version of Safe Mode for troubleshooting. It will disable all extensions and use the default theme if you click on the Continue in Safe Mode
button. To start Ff in Safe Mode look for the shortcut in your Firefox folder of the Start menu. More info here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode_(Firefox)
Note that I've not ever tried the other options like resetting bookmarks, cause it isn't clear how to reverse that back to what you had before. I suppose tho, that everything will be as it was before when starting Ff in it's normal mode. But I would suggest for now just running it with extensions disabled and see if the same problems are experienced. If corrected in safe mode then you'll need to look into which extension is causing the problem.
Is this the page we're talking about having trouble with?
To describe my problem, certain functions of websites didn't work. What I noticed was mostly here at BC. When trying to post, I could not use the toolbar to insert any BBcode--including the clickable smilies. It was the same at other forums. Also some of the dropdown menus were disabled and various other functions. On investigating, I found that when I went to Tools>Options>Content
Again, this may be a whole different issue with java script. Graveangel, you know that I know pretty much what you have running on your system,
and we don't have a lot of the same security software in common, but I would be interested in the other data. There are so many different combinations of software and hardware and settings out there that it's almost infinite what the possibilites are for my problem. Don't know if there is a solution for the puzzle. But I'll report back tomorrow after the KAV scan if J-script has been disabled again.
