Windows 7: Problem with FireFox and - or Computer??

Problem with FireFox and - or Computer??

I have posted a Q on MozillaZine website about a problem I am having with FF (see below), but I have got no replies
It would seem I must have a unique problem to FF, but I cannot be sure?

I would like to ask if there is any software that will check FF and my comp, Win 7 64 bit for bugs or problems?

I have MSE, MalwareBytes and C Cleaner, so is there anything else out there that I can try?


I cannot NOW use IM Translator, it does not show on toolbar and all my buttons (quick click, ie facebook, BBC news, etc) have disappeared, plus when I open New Tab, it does not give options of last window with closed as it did previously?
I also updated to FF4 Beta, but that also had problems, with duplicating windows, but it did have the missing buttons there from my old version, but FF4 does not yet support all of them?
So, I am now back in FF 3.6.13, now I can download IM Translator, but still does not work and the colour scheme for the tabs, it worked breifly but not now? I have checked in the add ons page but still no luck? Also the spell check has gone?
Basically I have all of these things in Add-Ons and they are enabled, but do not work?

Any advice?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I gave up on the Google toolbar when I went to the 4.0 x64 beta builds. I miss it, a bit, but it's a resource hog as related to the browser. I got used to not having it.

Having said that, if it ever gets updated for the FF x64 builds, I'll give it another try.
