    Exclamation FireFox - Major Help Needed!!

    Ok, as you can see by the attached screen cap, my Firefox is totally messed up! Besides the big grey rectangle at the bottom, I can't open new windows (or even the page to add an attachment) - just new tabs and my RoboForm is disabled.

    HELP!! How do I fix it?

    I can't help but think this is related to the spellers - the RiteofTongue one I just deleted. The ASpell I deleted the rar file and tried to dl the exe - halfway through it stopped dling and then I couldn't reconnect to the site.

    Thank you, oh wise techies!!

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Ok, let's fully reset FireFox (be sure to export your bookmarks first, as they will be deleted):

    1/2. Close All FireFox Windows
    1. Clict Start > My Computer
    2. Click Tools... > Folder Options
    3. On the view tab, click "Show Hidden Files".
    4. Click OK.
    5. Click C: > Documents & Settings > (Your User Name) > Application Data
    6. Delete the Mozilla folder.
    7. Close all windows, and re-open FireFox.

    You'll have a clean slate to work with. You can re-import your bookmarks at this time.

    Ok, that didn't work.
    But I don't have qa documents and settings (ME, remember?) so I went to Windows/Application Data and deleted that Mozilla follder. Buyt FF wouldn't open. and now that I restored it, it still won't open . :\

    Ok, rebooted and now it's back to what it was before.

    Let's just fully uninstall Firefox:

    1) Uninstall Firefox or Bon Echo or Minefield or whatever it is version of FF that you have running.
    2) Go to 'C:\Windows\Local Settings\Application Data'
    3) Delete the folder 'Mozilla\Firefox'
    4) Go to 'C:\Windows\Profiles\(Your User Name)\Local Settings\Application Data' (If exists)
    5) Delete the folder 'Mozilla\Firefox'
    6) Go to 'C:\Windows\Application Data'
    7) Delete the folder 'Mozilla\Firefox'
    8) Go to 'C:\Windows\Profiles\(You User Name)\Application Data' (if exists)
    9) Delete the folder 'Mozilla\Firefox'
    10) Restart the computer for all pending deletions to take place.
    11) Install the latest version of Firefox.

    Well, I ended up deleting it again and rebooting and that worked, without reinstalling.
    Thanks for the help!!!
