Firefox 3.6.3 crashes at start-up. I'm very frustrated with Firefox. I've researched through out the forum posts and tried everything I've found about FF not starting. A previous version of FF was running OK then one day when I tried using FF again and it now crashes at start-up. It will not start period. If I didn't need FF for this one particular application then I would just use another browser. I've been looking for a solution for this problem for many many weeks. Someone please help.

Computer is running Vista


Some days I think it would be less painful to beat my head against a brick wall then to deal with computers.

please help if you can, TE

Is there a way to get Firefox to "unremember me" on a certain site? Unfortunately the site is set up strangely, so the password doesn't appear in the right place.

I have not installed Firefox. Thinking about it and it sounds good until I see all the problems people are having with crashing and connecting etc. That is why I want to know if an older version is available for download. I would feel more comfortable.

Also if do install, want to be able to read / write Russian language but not lose English as the primary language by default. Is this possible?

Since I upgraded to 3.6.3 my bookmarks folder has become nearly half the size upon exporting it in html format. I normally refresh my working copy of Mozilla by saving the bookmarks and then erasing all aspects of Firefox and starting over from scratch. I am concerned that if I rely upon this smaller folder I may be losing data. Can someone tell me what is happening here? It could be that this is just an improvement in Firefox but I do not know how to test the waters to see if all my data is saved.

Every time I open Firefox, I get several javascript errors that a "script has become slow or unresponsive" referencing line 641 of file nsBlockListService.js. I took a look at the file and it looks like this javascript is trying to do some kind of online lookup at startup. I've tried disabling the blocklist in about:config as well as renaming "blocklist.xml" (suggestion from an online search) but nothing has worked. In my opinion, it is extremely bad design to make an online lookup a startup dependency - Firefox takes well over 5 minutes to load and will sometimes hang - I am thinking of switching to Opera - programs that cannot even start are lame IMHO. I am not the only one experiencing this issue - why is there no posted fix? Why is Firefox even trying to do "anti-phishing/anti-malware" when my antivirus already does it for me? It seems to me it is just another way for Google to gather data about browsing habits. Tying the use of client software to any sort of online server is bad design and unstable in the long term since there is no way of knowing how long the server will be available. Firefox's startup sequence should run independent of any third-party services. It doesn't make sense to force every user of Firefox to wait 5 minutes every time they open the browser, just to perform some sort of "blocklist check". The last time I took a look at the list of blocked servers, ther were only about 20 on there. What a waste of time! How can this check be disabled?
