Everything was working fine untill the update. I can reach the sites with a google search but the bookmarks and bookmark toolbar don't work. As far as i can tell the location info is still correct. Anyone else had this problem before or know a fix?

Hi,

Please check if this happens in Safe Mode. Safe mode disables the installed Extensions, and themes (Appearance) in Tools (Alt + T) > Add-ons. Hardware acceleration is also temporarily disabled - the manual setting is Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Use hardware acceleration when available. All these settings/options/add-ons can also be individually or collectively disabled/enabled/changed in Firefox normal mode to check if an extension, theme, option or hardware acceleration is causing issues. Disabling/enabling hardware acceleration, and some types of add-ons in normal mode may require a Firefox restart.

Yup works in Safe mode. It seems like IE view (add on) was the culprit. Thanks!

Hi,

I had exactly this problem after updating to 14.0.1 on the mac osx 10.7.4, but removing the IE View add on solved it for me.

Thanks.
