Now, having installled v5 I find that it doesn't load when the icon is clicked - or doesn't appear to be.
Loaded and ran IE8 - when my homepage appeared I clicked on an item and Firebox then fired up. I hve run this several times with the same result. Finally I decided to stick with IE and uninstalled Firefox.
But why would this strange behaviour exist in the first place as I have never had problems with Firefox before - through most of the versions.
Like Rawprawn I have reverted to V4.01. Earlier, in addition to the getting a non working Firefox v5 and the subsequent uninstalling of it. I then had a problem with Word 2007. This was resolved by installing v4.01 as suggested by fellow member Woolwell.
I will, for a time at least, resist the urge to upgrade to v5!
I thought it was a bit sneaky of Firefox. I have 4 and am happy with it. I had no intention of getting 5, no need.
This morning I got a pop up saying important update for FF, recommending I download it immediately. Thinking it was some sort of security thing, I did as I was bid. when it came back on it said thanx for installing FF5. It then informed me that it would have to get rid of my only add on, 'DAP' because it wasn't compatible.
I didn't want 5 in the first place, now I have and am worse off. One step forward and two steps back. Think I'll see if I can unstall it and go back to 4.
