Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

Hello cancundelight, probably a extension is the problem because you have the problem after the update.
you can check it in safe mode. Firefox Safe Mode is a mode that can be used to troubleshoot and fix problems, temporarily resets some settings and disables add-ons that might be causing problems, so if the problem does not happen in Safe Mode close safe mode (Firefox button and then select Exit) and then open firefox again and first Disable all extensions and Test for faulty extensions (one by one) to find the problematic one.
you can do it, we are here to help you if you need anything else.
all firefox versions for windows (xp, vista, 7, 8) it is the almost the same with small interface changes, see : http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ only one exist for windows.
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in compatibility mode.
You can open the Properties of the Firefox desktop shortcut via the right-click context menu and check the "Compatibility" tab.
Make sure that all items are deselected in the "Compatibility" tab of the Properties window.
it was not in XP mode - BUT - when it went to download - keeps wanting to download in XP - also updating all drivers etc. Thank you for the help - still plugging at it
currently updating all drivers & patches (learning something new) - this is one area Safe Mode & troubleshooting that I will require detailed as to how it is done - I am completely ignorant in this area - will hopefully get all the drivers updated & patches done by wed. - will update then as to status, or be begging for hand-held help - Thank you for posting - everyone is being so helpful
