i used an antifilter and now my firefox does not work anymore! how can i fix it?
1st, I used proxifier and the freegate to bypass the filtration. These programs are compatible with google chrome and ie but after I finished using them, and as I am trying to click on the mozilla firefox icon, nothing happens and my browser does not appear!!
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/23.0.1271.64 Safari/537.11
Also, If you have security software (antivirus, firewall etc.) installed, you can try deleting all existing instances of Firefox and its related processes/files in all the different configuration modules/areas of the security software like process monitoring, sub/spawned process control, virtualization, HIPS etc., in addition to the security software's main configuration panel. Instead create new fully allowed/trusted rules for Firefox + its related processes in all the different modules/panels - a genuine/original Firefox installer as well as all the installed EXEs (Application) and DLLs (Application extension) are digitally signed by Mozilla Corporation (right-click > Properties > Digital Signatures). Even otherwise, some security software may also ask again when Firefox and/or its sub processes are started, and you may be able to allow/trust at that time. Please see this.
Many thanks for your quick reply. I followed your comments about anti-virus but there were no problems and conflicts between my kaspersky and mozilla-firefox. By the way, that was fruitful for me for other similar problems I may have in future :)
Finally I had to download the latest mozilla and reinstall my firefox. Fortunately it just upgraded my firefox and now it works again.
Thanks for the detailed update :)
