Has anyone been having problems with Firefox today? The reason I ask is that this morning and early afternoon it was ok, but now when I try to load it it's home page will not come up. Any ideas? J.B.

No problem here but I do not use its home page.

I had a problem with my home page and this site today too using Firefox.

Version 1.5 is still in beta form as far as I am aware - 1.0.7 is the current version.

I've had no problems using Firefox today but I'm not sure which home page you mean.

I uninstalled version 1.0.7 and now trying 1.5RC-3, let you all know what happens. J.B.

well, so far so good, a couple of my extensions won't work but that is small stuff really. I will check this as resolved for the time being and come back if it recurr's. J.B.

Since downloading Firefox 1.5 RC-3 I have had no problems. Am using Firefox's home page and now I have updated all my extensions and themes to work with the new build so, fingers crossed everything will be fine Thanks for all the help, but, I have one question, how do I do a repair install if I have to? J.B.

Uninstall your present version and install a new download of Firefox - all your configuration etc is in a separate folder and will be retained.
