My windows 7 pc with firefox 3.6 stopped working properly - I upgraded to the latest version but get the same effects. With the BBC iplayer it plays on the main screen but not on the pop-out. Hotmail does not work at all - I have tried system restore and tried uninstalling and then reinstalling version 3.6, 7 and 8 with the same result. Even their own feedback does not work unless I restart in safe mode. Everything works correctly with IE 9 but I prefer firefox. Does anyone know how to get it working properly again?

Try it with your Firewall turned off.

Doesn't sound as if it has been removed correctly

Use CCleaner to clean the registry (This is the safest registry cleaner I know)

Then try to reinstall

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\ ccleaner did the trick cheers. I must say I still do not like the current format of this site and use it much less than I used to.
