What do you mean "bad Image"? Please clarify what's going on
Do a clean reinstall and delete the Firefox program folder before (re)installing a fresh copy of the current Firefox release.
Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
- Firefox 23.0: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html
Uninstall your current Firefox version, if possible, to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
- Do NOT remove personal data when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because all profile folders will be removed and you lose personal data like bookmarks and passwords from profiles of other Firefox versions.
Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
- (32 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
- (64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
- It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure that "remove personal data" is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.
thanks for your reply. i started to uninstall firefox and have been asked to close firefox before i can proceed. how do i close firefox and carry on.
You can close Firefox in the usual way via Firefox > Exit Firefox or File > Exit Firefox.
Try to reboot the computer if there are still files in use.
sorry but it did not work. every time i cancel i get another one this time instead of firefox.eve it is AdobeARM.exe then newdev.eve etc etc etc.
driving me nuts.
