Windows 7 Professional X64 Service Pack 1

Were you able to find out what was causing it or just give in as I am about to do.

I have Chrome on my Xp machine and not on my Win7 machine, but I just figure it (Google) is the "big Brother" effect and wants to control everything, maybe time will change my mind.

I never figured it out, and Mozilla forums were no help.

Windows 8 Pro w/MC 32-bit

Standard for those people who need that stuff. Personally I don't have any of those programs...not even Firefox or Chrome. IE8 is fine and comes with your Windows 7 install. With IE there is a "Reset" option that will fix just about any browser problem.

7 ultimate x64

I don't have the java, HP, MS stuff (except silverlight) so I can't comment on them being the cause but try disabling everything through Firefox orange button -> help -> restart w/ add ons disabled. It will close the browser and it will restart with a prompt with further options such as reset all settings to default, etc. Take your pick and try. If even that fails try a new profile (as last resort).

Windows 7 Ultimate N 64-bit

when i have issues like this, i normally go through and delete all related files.

i.e. within appdata and get rid of all mozilla folders, ( ofucrse will loose all data and bookmarks) or just rename the folders .old and try again see how it goes.
