I have been using Firefox for a year now, and never had any problems... until this afternoon! Suddenly it would not load at all. I tried uninstalling and re-installing...still get nothing. So, now I am using IE and feel sooooo exposed!!! What should I try next to get Firefox going again? I read a few posts about cleaning the registry, which I am not very familiar with. Would someone coach me along?

Re: FireFox HELP!

 Have you tried clearing your private data? (Sorry, it's the first thing  that has to be asked)

Second question, have you updated anything that has to do with firefox (like addons or new themes), or have you downloaded anything new?

Yes, I cleared out everything...restarted the computer, etc...  I had not done anything different today, no updates, add-ons or anything like that. It just stopped working!

Re: FireFox HELP!

Hmm... have you checked your processes? made sure 'firefox.exe' isn't already running?

As far as cleaning the registry as Ashton referred to in posts above, (or below depending on your settings)... he was talking about using CCleaner which is a program (free)...

Re: FireFox HELP!

I am beginning to suspect that Spybot Search & Destroy may have a hand in my problem...so I am looking into that right now.
