Running Firefox 18.0.1 and FoxTab will no longer add top sites - any solution

Posted

Since the latest upgrade I can no longer add favourite sites to FoxTab. The option appears when I right click but nothing happens. This is a desktop running Windows 7 64-bit. I am also having the same problem on my laptap which is running the same OS

Chosen solution

I can't get foxtabs to work. Nothing happens when I add a site to Top Sites, and when I open Foxtabs, there are words and icons in a 'jumble' in the bottom left of the screen. i am running a 64 bit Vista. I also have a laptop with XP where Foxtabs works perfectly...
