Everything under the firefox menu is in spanish, such as "marcadores, historial and descargas" and I don't know how to change it back to english. I've tried to change the language under options, but I've chosen english for the language but it still is in spanish.

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 am receiving an attachment through an email and when I download it, Firefox will ask how I want to open it. It doesn't matter where I send it, it either won't open or it won't show up where I send it. I have contacted Yahoo! about it to see if they can fix it, because I thought it was happening from Yahoo! to Windows, but it turns out that Firefox will download it and ask where I want it to go and then sometimes it will extract it and I lose it, or it won't extract it at all, but it won't send it to the file folder either. A window will show that it has been downloaded, but I can't retrieve it from there or anywhere else except Yahoo! and when I download it again, it stays in the download window with the same results as before.

I have a fairly old PC. My old Internet Explorer Browser got very slow, so I tried to download Firefox. Unfortunately IE would not let me download Firefox, so I had to use my old browser, namely AOL, which is still on my PC, but I rarely use. My new PC will come with Windows 7 on it, which I presume will also have IE. Will I be able to download Firefox with this browser, as it won't have AOL on it?

I'm not sure if at one time there was a username and password given so that I automatically could access a site. The site is the home page for my department on the intranet of the company I work for, and they've activated a new vpn. If I use Safari, after activating the vpn opening Safari, it asks me for a user name and password for some proxy server and from there on out I can navegate the external web or the company intranet. Using Firefox, I do not get prompted for a user name and password but I cannot access my homepage yahoo.com or any public website; I can, however access my company's intranet. The IT guy says there must be some user name & pw to access the site that I've previously asked Firefox to memorize but which I can't see. I don't think so but I can't figure out where to find the list of sites that Firefox has memorized passwords for.
