Why did Mozilla block Personas after upgrading to 3.6.9 on one computer but none of the others? A warning box came up stating that Personas was causing instability or security problems and was being blocked and would be disabled when Firefox restarted.

I am not typing this on the computer on which I experienced the problem. Consequently, the list of plug-ins noted under the list of additional system details here is incorrect. I am running Firefox 3.6.9 on all three of my computers. The netbook on which this occurred is running Windows 7 Starter. Both other computers are running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Do you have Google Toolbar installed? If you do, try to disable or uninstall it to see if Personas work after that. It's a known issue that the latest version of Personas interferes with Google Toolbar:

It is not Personas that are being blocked, it is version 1.6 of the Personas Plus add-on that has been blocked as it was casuing many problems. You can still use Personas without that add-on. If you want the add-on, you can install version 1.6.1 which has fixed the bug in 1.6, available from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10900/

Your help is very much appreciated. While I could certainly live without Personas, it's a nice addition. Your answer solved my problem. I don't quite understand why Add-ons hadn't notified me of an update to Personas 1.6.1, but I have now installed it, and my problem has been solved.

Thank you very much for your help. Google toolbar is not an issue for me, but I appreciate your quick response. :)

For some reason, I can't seem to have my response to these posts show up where I want them. Consequently, I wish to thank both responders for their help. However, what worked for me is installing Personas 1.6.1. Google toolbar had nothing to do with my particular problem.
