Warning! Firefox crashing with Windows 7 and McAfee

Ive just bought a Toshiba laptop which comes preinstalled with McAfee security centre.

I installed Firefox and it just kept crashing on startup. I started it in safe mode and disabled the McAfee SiteAdvisor extension and it fixed it!

Thought Id let people know....

Steps to follow:

1. start Firefox in safe mode (its an option in the program folder)
2. Go to Tools -> add ons -> Extensions
3. Click on McAfee SitAdvisor and click "disable"
4. Restart Firefox in normal mode.
