Windows 7: Mozilla Foxfire is not showing any websites.

Mozilla Foxfire is not showing any websites.

I am currently on Goggle Chrome, but I enjoy going onto Foxfire.

But my problem with my Firefox browser is that it is not showing any of the websites I go too. And the default/homepage it's currently on won't link to other website. I'm new on this forum, so I apologize if this isn't enough information. but I don't know what happened to my Firefox browser to make it unresponsive to any internet websites. So any help would be appreciated and if anyone needs more information, let me know specifically what it may be and I'll try to add it on to this as well.

This showed up when I tried going back onto FireFox.

Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

Check this first, then just try uninstalling/reinstalling firefox. If you have favorites that you want to keep, see the firefox tutorial: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks | How to | Firefox Help

To install firefox, here is the link: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

One does not really need to keep a Firefox profile when reinstalling the program, as the profile is physically quite separate from the browser itself, and is only removed if one tells the Windows program uninstall mechanism to so do. In addition, it is only in rare cases that reinstalling Firefox solves any problems, as problems are generally located elsewhere.

For example, firewalls can prevent Firefox from accomplishing anything overly useful:
