computer crashes. It started with programs like Suitcase. I tried reinstalling but that ties up. Then all my fonts became screwed up. Then Firefox became srewed up. Now I can't see some of the fonts although I opened them in Font Book. Then I couldn't trash anything. Then Mozilla crashes actually "Hangs Up" and I can't rread the fonts although I am running in safe mode.

I tried running disk repair and that didn't do anything. I can't load and I can't quit and I can't dump anything in the garbage. Can you tell me where to go and be nice.

Thank you. Jean King

Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

You can check for corrupted and duplicate fonts and other font issues: http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/multipleappsquit.html - Font Book 2.0 Help: Checking for damaged fonts http://www.creativetechs.com/iq/garbled_fonts_troubleshooting_guide.html


Download Firefox Full Version For All languages And Systems {web link} Save the file. Then;

Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.

• Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory.
