As it says, I've been having a rough time with Firefox lately, and I think it's become corrupted. I've tweaked various settings according to suggestions on this forum and others like it, but they have only exacerbated the problem. I updated to the newest version of the browser which did not help, and I finally tried the "Reset Firefox" button, which was worst of all. I lost my personalized settings and add-ons for nothing, as the problem persists.
Most frustrating is that it completely crashes whenever I click on Tools>Options, so I'm unable to make any changes to this new configuration. If I could safely export my Bookmarks, I would try to uninstall the browser and re-install an older version of it, but of course it now freezes when I try to export the bookmark file.
So, aside from trashing the whole thing and starting over...any suggestions?
For the record, it is Firefox 28.0 (not sure what version it was when the trouble began), and the "About Firefox" window says that it is up-to-date. I am running Windows XP.
Thanks for any assistance or enlightenment you might be able to provide.
