Firefox problems

  tasslehoff burrfoot 14:04 06 Apr 2006


My firefox has strted playing up this morning. It's fine for normal browsing but as soon as I try to download anything it crashes, I get the usual (microsoft) error report message , I click don't send and firefox disappears.

I've downloaded and reinstalled Firefox but still the same thing happens.

I've also tried a number of different downloads from a number of different sites as atest and they all crash firefox.

I'm getting a bit fed up of having to use IE when i want to download stuff.

Any ideas?

Have you checked out FF's Tools>Options>Downloads tab>View and Edit Actions button?

Any idea how I can transfer bookmarks/cookies to the new profile?
