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.

I hope this is just a problem with Firefox . It is running in the backround and since I can't see it I can't shut it down. It is not in Task Manager Applications. There are 2 firefox.exe in the processes window but both have 00% usage. I tried Safe mode but got nothing. Uninstall says I need to close firefox first. Have not had any problems with firefox before except for slow loading probably due to Norton.

several times now after a browser update I've been advised in the update success page to immediately update the A-dopey trash player. Each time I have attempted this feat no yellow bar containing any button labeled "allow" has ever been in evidence and nothing else I've tried which seemed reasonable would enable any such upgrade. Why not quit suggesting this upgrade if the uploader at A-dopey is not compatible with the firefox browser? I really think I have enough frustration in my life, that's why I sought out an alternative to the standard Evil Empire browser.
