For the past few days, when i try to open my fireforx, it will crash immediately.

At first, i thought it was due to my Flash Player. However, i have already updated it to the latest version.

I tried uninstalling the Firefox, without removing my bookmarks, it works fine. However, the next day, the issue comes back again.

Subject line pretty much sums it up. The instructions for setting a blank homepage in the Troubleshooting section tell you to "...open a new tab. Click the icon to the left of the web address, drag it to the Home button, and release."

but when I try to click and drag the little blank-page icon it won't drag. The directions work fine for non-blank webpages.

Is there another way to do this? (I'm running windows 7 on a Dell laptop. 32-bit).

thanks.

After I open more than a couple tabs, I can no longer select an item from a drop_down menu. If I close most open tabs, minimize Firefox, then maximize it again the drop_down menus work. This has started with version 6
