Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.


In Firefox 4 you can use one of these to start in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode:

  • Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Hold down the Shift key while double clicking the Firefox desktop shortcut (Windows)

I was able to narrow down the add-ons Shareaholic and CoolIris Previews as the culprits in my case. If you have either of these, try disabling them. It solved my problem. My guess is not all add-on publishers have their stuff working in FF 4. In any case using the safe mode and disabling all add-ons, then going through them one-by-one goes a long way to fixing this issue...annoy though it may be.
