Chosen solution

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Installing_Firefox#Mac_OS_X ..... If you have Mac OS X 10.5 or newer then do this: Download a new copy of the Firefox program: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean reinstall. Install the new version that you have downloaded. Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
