View Full Version : Firefox Crashes

14-08-2009, 11:48 AM
each time I try to open FireFox 3.5.2 it crashes.
The same thing happened with previous version I had in so I completely uninstalled it, rebooted and reinstalled 3.5.2 but - same problem.
When I click on the Firefox icon I get the Mozilla Crash reporter.

Windows XP Pro

Can anyone assist me with this please.
Thank you

Possibly a conflicting addon.

Go run>firefox -safe-mode

See if it opens then. If it does then it is a either a corrupt profile or an addon.

Probably some addon, or the profile. Uninstall it again, and delete its folder/s then install it again

Uninstall it again

ran test on hard drive -- bad sectors many

will start over with new drive.

Thank you.

Did you follow my steps also?

No I am sorry I didn't.
I felt that since the hard drive was damaged any further attempts would be futile until I replaced the hard drive.
