It pulls up the window, but the only thing on the firefox start page is "about mozilla". It won't finish loading, nor will it load any other website at all. It just sits there with the hourglass and I can't push any buttons on it at all. Please help, I'm having to use IE and I hate it.

Arrows and Pg Up/Dwn keys no longer function correctly in firefox.

When in a browser, if I use the down arrow keys to move down the page, the page immediately goes to the bottom, instead of the next section of screen to be displayed.

The Pageup/pagedown buttons have the same problem - they go to the absolute top and absolute bottom of the screen instead of going to just the next section of the page to be viewed.

I have tested it and I do not have this problem in IE which makes me think it is not a setting on my particular machine (ie: scroll lock, etc) but more something is off in Firefox.

When I first start FF I get my set home, but when I press the Home (Mozilla Firefox Start Page) icon FF loads this string pagechrome://branding/locale/browserconfig.properties to the address line and the first and only line on a blank screen. What is going on? I have changed everything I can think of in my Options. I cannot get back to the Restore Previous Session message like I get on my other 3 machines. This happens on every new tab I open in a session, whether I have two or twenty tabs.

I have 5 contacts at the bottom of my contact list only when I want to forward something. Only when I click on TO and the list comes up. They are cum time, horny Girlhere, night chat and sexynaked chickroom. I want to delete them but when I right click I don't get anything that says that I can delete them. When I bring up my contact list the normal way they are not on my list other wise I would be able to delete them. I even got a e-mail from sexynaked chick on my safe list before. What can I do to get rid of these? Has someone hacked my account? I changed my password and I don't know what else to do.
