Every time I start firefox it takes 5 minutes because checking if plugins are compatible with this version. I can understand the first time I upgrade but happens every time. How do I stop this? JBgarod

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?
Some security software has virtualization or sandbox features that may cause problems by protecting and restoring files in the Firefox profile folder.
Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
go to About:config and find plugins.hide_infobar_for_outdated_plugin then double-click on it, to toggle it to "TRUE".
Hi all, thanks for the replies but it didn't work. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and then had further problems in that I couldn't install any add ons. I spent a couple of days at it and gave up. I am now using chrome and have uninstalled Firefox as I coundn't find out how to download an earlier version. Tks again. JBGarrod
