Question

Firefox won't save preferences & crashes when opening files

Two main problems here but they may be interlinked somehow.

Firstly Firefox, always asks me if I want to contribute to submit performance data each time I open the browser. I followed all the tips in 'FF won't save my preferences' article and got nowhere. I've now uninstalled FF and deleted every trace (inc. in hidden folders). Now re-installed it does exactly the same and also now won't save my home page either.

Secondarily, firefox always crashes when I try and import/export bookmarks without fail. Also often crashes when pressing an upload file button, e.g. gmail attachments or post image to facebook from file. This has been happening for some time and still is, even after wiping everything..
