My Virusscanner (AVG Internet Security Free) gave me a message; it said that the language plug in wasn't reliable, and needed to be removed. So, I did…

But after I removed it; Firefox doesn't work anymore, when I open the browser, All I can see is a white screen with red letters:

"<window id="main-window" ^" </p>

See attached image for example.

I deleted Firefox, and re-installled it, but, this didn't help. Still the same problem. How can I solve this? Also tried to restart my laptop, but this doesn't help.

Hi Vreugdenhil85

This is a bug:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1492459

It doesn't appear to be a bug in Firefox but rather in AVAST and AVG. Your workaround fixes the problem. Hopefully AVAST or AVG will fix it soon, if not Firefox will somehow have to code a fix around AVAST/AVG

Cheers!

I've managed to solve this problem;

I deleted Firefox, and installed an older version. After that, I re-installed the latest version of Firefox.
