A few days ago my Windows 7 laptop installed the monthly batch of Microsoft updates and, at about the same time, an update to Acrobat Reader. Since then Firefox will not open properly. All I get is a dark grey screen and nothing else. I have done an uninstall/re-install but that produced exactly the same result. Everything else (including Internet Explorer and Google Chrome) is working normally. I am not sufficiently bothered to do a system restore and then re-install the updates one by one to identify the problem, but was just wondering whether anyone else had had a similar problem, and, if so, what the explanation was.
Thank you for that. However, I did the uninstall using the most aggressive setting on Revo Uninstaller, so I don't think it can be due to a remnant being left behind. You are, of course, quite right that I could do a system restore, but that would also remove all the Microsoft updates, and I am not that concerned in view of the fact that everything else is working fine, including all other browsers.
