Obviously I have done something wrong as I am now unable to access new themes and extensions. Have tried unistalling and reinstalling with no improvement - still can't get them. Any ideas please?
:-(

try compleately uninstalling firefox, then go to programs folder, and delete any "firefox" folders.
Restart and try again.

Thought it was cracked, but no!
Uninstalled, cleared, reinstalled and it opened. Still no access to extensions though. Closed firefox and switched users to my wife's and all is working ok; opening and access to themes and extensions. Back to me and again it won't open.

I'm now going to get outside of a large glass of wine. If all else fails, drink on it!

Try this, navigate to this folder \Documents and Settings\"YourName\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"Randomstring" and make a copy of this folder(in case of problems).

Now open the folder and delete the folders labelled "chrome" and "extensions".

Now launch Firefox and reinstall the themes extensions you use and see if that cures it.

HTH, dagwoood.

You could always try a browser that works once in a while click here Firefox is pretty crap really lets be honest.

Why is Firefox crap? Don't make a statement like that without justifying it, because you may have a valid point and we would like to hear the reason why.

Maxthon is just an IE skin, still with all the security vulnerabilities because it uses IE6, its not a stand-alone browser like Firefox
