I hate to say this but sometimes the best fix is uninstalling and reinstalling. I'm using a little Blackberry so sorry for typos and I can't link to one of my fav free tools - CCleaner. [Don't download from Cnet - they want you to install their download tracker.]

1) Download and install ccleaner

2) Use the program uninstaller to delete FF

3) Run ccleaner to delete temp files and fix registry errors (have it back up your registry first)

4) Reboot

5) Maybe run ccleaner again just to make sure garbage gets cleaned up (optional)

6) Run the utility to create a Restore Point (sorry, wish I had the link - it's under System Properties I think)

7) Reinstall FF

Using these steps usually fixes pesky problems. Having worked in the industry since before DOS 1.3, I've seen a growing laziness, lack of skill depth, and cost cutting (outsourcing) that's killing quality and stability.

Thanks. If I uninstall Firefox 14, will I lose my bookmarks on my FF browser? (I have hundreds of them)

Sorry if this is a stupid question... ;-)
