Windows 7: Firefox is totally dead

25 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional
Firefox is totally dead

I cannot use Firefox anymore. It's as if it's totally locked up: can't complete any online transactions, can't access searches, track packages, and it locks up my computer and I have to shut down completely and start up again. Nothing whatsoever can be done in FF. All the above work perfectly in Chrome but I don't want to use any related to Google. All FF updates are automatic; today the latest was downloaded. I've always used FF -- I really like it. This is bizarre. Your help will be greatly appreciated. ec

open firefox ,click help then click start firefox with add-ons disabled
see if it works ok then.
if so the problem is with an add on.
go to add ons and update them.
or disable add ons and then add one at a time until it locks up etc then you will have worked out the last add on added that is causing the problem.

See this on how to "refresh" Firefox:

Is there a way of totally disabling F1 hotkey ?
I find myself never referring to the Windows helper in case I have a problem, like I'm doing now. Microsoft's help is a bit too 'conservative' imo, and thus I'd like to disable it from popping up every time F1 is pressed. Is there a way to do that ? Thanks in advance P.S. searching for...
