Thank you very much cor-el. You just save me lots of time looking for the problem myself or deleting FF completely...

Under Tools, Firefox has no entry called "Options"...so this solution doesn't work...

more options

Instead of Tools > Options use:

  • Mac: Firefox > Preferences
  • Linux: Edit > Preferences
  • Windows: Firefox > Options

Press F10 if the menu bar is hidden on Windows and Linux or use "Firefox > Options/Preferences"
