Firefox works fine until sometimes when I try to click to a link, or something else, then the tabs area fills in with a whole bunch of 'untitled' tabs that go whizzing across the tabs area. If I close Firefox, it just opens again with the tabs still running. I have to totally quit out of Firefox, then re-open before it will stop.

I was having a java problem in Firefox so I uninstalled clean and deleted my profiles folders. I am trying to reinstall but it keeps saying there's already a version open and there are no new profiles folders there. Is there a way to reinstall so this browser will work again?

Whenever I start up Firefox (4beta7 portable) it acts normally. I can visit web sites without a problem. However as soon as I click on any page (including about: pages) it freezes forever. I have to use Windows to manually close it with the program is not responding box. I have a feeling that it might be related to one of the plugins I installed immediately before restarting

Apparently Firefox is running, but I can't see any evidence of this on the screen. When I reboot the computer, usually I can call up and use Firefox as usual. This is quite a nuisance, as it happens several times an hour. No notification of a crash is provided, ever.
