I have reset Firefox, followed all the various instructions for ALL the faults and it is STILL not working properly !
Various problems : Firefox crashing, missing toolbar, bookmarks disappeared (reset and now they won't work at all) , cannot set homepage again (despite following all instructions), shockwave flash constantly unresponsive (again, all instructions followed and no change), Firefox especially slow in facebook, sound volume keeps switching itself off. I have gone through each problem with all the suggested "fixes" AND reset Firefox, but it is worse now than before ! Just about had enough.

Delete the localstore.rdf and places.sqlite files in the profile folder.
MAKE SURE FIREFOX IS CLOSED DURING THIS OPERATION.
