Can't place images in Joomla 1.5 content editor

Since upgrading to FF3.6.10, when placing an image in content editor in Joomla 1.5 website(s) the image is not placed and only a short section of code is visible in the html view after completing task as below;

..(img border="0" /)

Reverting to earlier version of FF resolves this and everything works normally, testing the same function of other editors is satisfactory and images place correctly.

Not sure if this error is relative, but was displayed when the problem was noticed.

Error: Async statement execution returned with '11', 'database disk image is malformed' Source File: file:///Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/components/nsPlacesDBFlush.js Line: 312

After updating to Firefox 3.6.10 this morning, Outlook 2007 can no longer open up links embedded in emails. Normally when you clicked a link it would open up Firefox and send you to the website, but when you click on any link it now says:


General failure. The URL was: [url here] An error occurred in sending the command to the application.


I don't know what happened. I didn't change any other settings on the computer.

I am running Windows 7 64 Professional, MS Outlook 2007 with latest updates, and Firefox 3.6.10

ff 3.6.10 I had an older version of IE Tab Plus. I was having a problem with a page coming up and clicked on the change engine under the IE tab (I incorrectly assumed it would bring up the page in more of an Internet Explorer view). Now pages that have columns now show left and right margins that are disproportionally wide with the content in the middle squished. I disabled the add on, installed the latest add-on, installed ff via safe mode and then completely uninstalled and reinstalled ff. Not sure what else to try but it is not the websites as I can view them on other machines and they look perfect.

When I go to read all the tabs (generally articles from the NY Times I have saved for later reading), is also find tabs for every recently viewed page, including all my emails, which I then have to delete as I go through the tabs. I only want tabs for the links I put there on purpose.
