My Virusscanner (AVG Internet Security Free) gave me a message; it said that the language plug in wasn't reliable, and needed to be removed. So, I did…

But after I removed it; Firefox doesn't work anymore, when I open the browser, All I can see is a white screen with red letters:

"<window <="" ^"="" id="main-window" p=""></window>

See attached image for example.

I deleted Firefox, and re-installled it, but, this didn't help. Still the same problem. How can I solve this? Also tried to restart my laptop, but this doesn't help.

Hi Guys,

(I'm not too well versed with the intricacies of how Firefox works under the hood, so please bear with).

Yesterday, on opening Firefox, Avast (virus protection software) browser cleanup tool stated that the Language resource pack (this was yesterday, so I'm not sure if that's quite the correct term) was disreputable (2/5 stars). Avast said I should remove it, so I did (yes, I probably should've checked, but I was in a hurry).

Firefox was running perfectly fine before, but now only boots as an unresponsive white panel with <window (i="" <="" ^="" a="" an="" at="" attach="" ball).="" bordered="" box="" but="" doesn't="" id="main-window" image,="" in="" p="" play="" red="" seem="" text="" the="" to="" top.="" uploader="" want="" would=""></window>

Avast states on their website that removing an addon deletes it and the process cannot be undone.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox multiple times (with restarts) with no change, even with the 'remove addons and reset to default' checked.

I can't give you troubleshooting information because Firefox remains an unresponsive white panel - no addons, no toolbars to select 'help' from.

Any ideas? Please let me know if there's any other information you need to help fix this problem, I'd really like my favourite browser back!
