Windows 7: Firefox 3.5.2 problems

Firefox 3.5.2 problems

Is anyone else having problems with the latest version of Firefox?
I'm having difficulties with this forum- failed log ins, pages won't load, pages keep reloading, can't send posts etc.
Even worse it won't work with Gmail at all. I can view my mails but cannot reply to them.
As a result I'm trying Safari and things are fine but I'm missing Firefox.

So far I haven't noticed problems with any other sites and the problems started as soon as I installed the latest update.
So is anyone else getting this or is the problem elsewhere?

Cheers, John

No problems here. John, have you tried safe mode to see if an extensions is causing havoc?

I had a problem with it at work (on an xp box) but a dotnet update fixed it. Don't know if that'll help you tho

No problems here, have you tried a uninstall/reinstall of firefox?

Thanks folks. I'll try an uninstall/reinstall first and see if that helps.
I'm using Chrome in Windows 7 and Safari in Vista (due to this problem) and, whilst they are both very fast, I can't say I'm liking either that much.
Perhaps I'm just used to FF.

I had heaps of problems with the latest one and in safe mode it seemed to be fine so I choose the options to make settings permanent but for some reason the issues stared again so now I have gone back to 3.013 and no more problems.

.....had the same issues here too Mate, so also reverted to FF3.0.13., if I recall it has been compatibility probs. with some extensions and add-ons. I'm sticking where I am now until these are all sorted.

PS Edit. Just tested gmail link and OK

Thanks to both of you. How can I revert? Will I have to find a download and reinstall? J

Something is seriously weird here. I have been using Fx 3.5 since it was 3.1a1 and have never had issues as you ahve been describing on Windows 7 64bit at all.

I currently have 3.5.2 installed, as well as 3.5.3pre (nightly, aka Shiretoko) and 3.6a1 Nightly (aka Minefield, but also going to be called Namoroka) and all three work fine on Google, Gmail, here, and other websites I frequent.

With Minefield, I have like 3 extensions, but with Shiretoko I use my Daily profile, which has the following:
