I downloaded a freeware prog., scanned it (nothing malicious) and installed, canceled the ask! tool bar add on, but it put it on anyhow. My mozilla had the minimize toolbars buttons, so I minimized every thing to get a full screen, but now I don't have buttons, I don't have anything accept the home page. I deleted mozilla, deleted the program file, reinstalled twice, but still the same messed up opening page with no url, no tool bars, no buttons, nothing... I left scanning the entire computer and am at school....

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Hi, I've tried to install FF3 three times since it came out. Each time was a disaster, favorite bookmarks were erased and any attempt to do an internet search locked up the computer, it took weeks to solve each time. I've learned to hate and fear FF3, but now theres no choice. Help, please? Now I have to install it, what can I do to make this go smoothly?

I've copied all my files and bookmakers to disk, just in case. BTW I have a Del 3000, 5 years old, XP, with all its standard software, other than kodaks easyshare there are no difficult or demanding software added. thanks Roger

Sometimes when I do a google search all my tabs and tool bars will disappear and the page will go to a blank yahoo search page. This happens several times a day and it's very frustrating to lose all my tabs and have to close everything and start over. It seems like it's crashing however I don't get the pop up to report the crash. What's the deal with this?? Does firefox not like XP? I never had this issue with my laptop that has vista (can't use it at the moment since my daughter cracked the LCD)
