Corrected: HANGING. Problem Solved.

Uninstalled, reinstalled FF8, to no avail.

Firefox 8, WinXP SP2 updated, all plug-ins functional. Chrome runs fine; all scans come clean. CONFIRMED.

But Firefox won't load (it's there in TaskManager consuming 1,000,000+ Kb, hanging...) totally useless.

(btw: those gre script utils have been a persistent problem, hanging, for almost a year.) What's the fix? What needs to get deleted from Profiles? Or elsewhere?

FireFox hangs when it opens. I have tried all suggestions listed in the knowledge base. I have posted on the forum but have not received a successful response. At this point I have no other option but to return to IE. This is the problem with open source - there is no solid support. If this had been mission critical software my company would be out of business. If Mozilla wants to rule the world then they need to support the world as well. I am sadly abandoning FireFox.

Firefox 8.0.1 Crashes even before opening

Recently , I uninstalled McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise ,Threatfire & Deep Freeze from my p.c. Thereafter , I re-installed Threatfire , & installed Avast Anti Virus & Comodo Firewall . Since I made these changes , Firefox 3.6.17 started to hang so I uninstalled it & downloaded & installed Version 8.0.1 . After that , Firefox crashes every time I try to open it even before it has opened up . Why is this happening ? Do I need to specify it as a trusted application (exception) in any of the Security applications that I have installed ? I already specified it as trusted in Comodo . Was this necessary ? I even completely uninstalled & then re-installed it all over again but still it crashes . What could be the solution ?

To zoom in on the problem , I tried opening it in Safe Mode but it still crashes straightaway. However , if I start Windows in Safe mode or "Safe Mode with Networking" and then start Firefox 8.0.1 , then it starts up correctly . So , I assume , it has to be one of the following 3 causes that is making it crash :

(1) Is one of my Start Up Programs that is causing Firefox to crash .

 Following is list of the running processes when I start my p.c. (Other than the one's that are displayed when I start my p.c. in Safe Mode) :-

(i)rundl32.exe (ii)vsnpstd3.exe (iii)FLVsrvc.exe (iv)RTHDCPL.EXE (v)VideoAccelerator.exe (vi)wmiprvse.exe (vii)alg.exe (viii)Cpa_VA.exe (ix)taskmgr.exe (x)Apache.exe (xi)unsecapp.exe (xii)ctfmon.exe (xiii)cfp.exe (xiv)mysqld-nt.exe (xv)TFTray.exe (xvi)AvastSvc.exe (xvii)wdfmgr.exe (xviii)cmdagent.exe (xix)TFService.exe (xx)snmp.exe (xxi)Ymsgr_tray.exe (xxii)Psiservice2.exe (xxiii)Ioctlsvc.exe (xxiv)nvsvc32.exe (xxv)nlssrv32.exe (xxvi)msiexec.exe (xxvii)jqs.exe (xxviii)CLPS.exe (xxix)cisvc.exe (xxx)AvastUI.exe

Could one of these be the culprit ?

(2) Or is it a Virus ? ( Ran "Avast Boot time Scan" twice but even after that it crashes ).

(3)It is Avast , Threatfire or Comodo Firewall that is making it crash ?

I have a MacBook Pro that's never had any issues, but my Firefox suddenly won't even load, when I open it nothing appears in the window and it freezes immediately. Over the past few days, I have deleted and re-downloaded Firefox about three times, but it is still occurring. I can't try any of the other steps, such as placing it into safe mode because I can't access the menu so I am not sure what to do.
