Hi,

When I try to click on firefox, the little wait icon appears and then disappears. Nothing opens, not even safe mode. I've looked at the "Firefox won't start and there is no error message" help section and looked at my task manager processes. It seems that when I click firefox, it briefly appears on my processes and then disappears. This happened yesterday while I was in the middle of using it. At the same time, my Skype also crashed, which makes me think the two are correlated. The two programs still don't work. The only way that I can open firefox is if I install it all over again with the "launch firefox now" option checked at the end. When I have a firefox window open, I can open other firefox windows just fine. When I close it, nothing opens. Thanks for your help.

Apparently this has been an issue in the past (2007, I think). Recently after updating my Firefox browser to ver. 3.6.9, I am not able to reply to emails I receive in my Godaddy webmail. Are there updates available to fix this issue? If so, how do I obtain them? I love my Firefox, but I also love my Godaddy! Having to use Safari for webmail now. Not sure if I should or even need to post URL for this issue. Please advise.

Thanks, Susan

I am using Office 2007 This did not occur prior to the upgrade of Firefox.

For at least a few weeks yahoo mail has been very slow. It is slow to load the yahoo homepage, but it's worst trying to log into my mail. After I type my email address and password and pressed enter, it can take almost a minute for my mail (inbox etc) to actually load. Then it is also slow signing back out. Have noticed no problems with IE 8.
