Why am I unable to post comments from FF. I can do it from IE, but it takes ages. Virus etc. checked.

Two problems:

1. I am unable to post comments from FF, but I can do it from IE, though it takes ages with IE. Checked for Virus etc. with McAfee, ZoneAlarm and Spybot. FF versions 4 later changed to 12. Both do not allow - just keeps waiting (tried up to about 1 hour). It started about a month ago.

2. I am unable to attach .pdf files from FF in Yahoo Mail. It works from IE - though it takes ages (script?).

I am using 'NO Script' from FF - but for most cases I have to go to 'partially allowed' mode.

Thanks

(1) As instructed I went to 'run' and typed in the code. It took me to 'xuowtwd1.default' folder under 'Profiles'. There were several files stored there and I did not know what to do. Next... (2). As suggested I went to 'troubleshooting Information' under 'Help' drop down list. (3). Followed instructions, but could not find the 'Reset Profile' button. (4). It said the instructions were not for my version (V12) of FF. (5). Downloaded V. 14.0.1 (6). Will not install. As mentioned earlier I am using Windows 2000 (p.s.initial complaint)

Ok, you are running Firefox 12 on Windows 2000. We've dropped support for Windows 2000, so what we will be able to do for you is pretty limited. Firefox no longer works with Windows 2000.

To create a new profile, just use the profile manager. Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles
