Firefox crashes

more options

Everytime I try to open Firefox, it gives me a Crash Report thru Mozilla Crash Reporter. I've submitted the crash report a number of times. I need to be able to access Firefox. I did change my modem but not sure if that would have anything to do with Firefox crashing. Thanks so much for your help. MaureenR

Chosen solution

Yes, you can use another browser like IE to download Firefox 8. You won't lose your bookmarks or any other data or settings.

See How to download and install Firefox on Windows for help installing. Note that this crash and the solution (reinstalling Firefox) is included in the Latest Firefox issues article.

(For the record) Here is the crash report (from your "more system details"):

I can't open the Firefox browser to upgrade it. Do I download the latest version into IE? I don't want to lose any bookmarks.

Thanks
