Firefox crashed on me last night, and now won't restart (even in safe mode). Anyone got any ideas? I hesitate to re-install it, as I would lose add-ons, etc.
I think installing a newer version of Firefox will not over write your add-ons, the newer version bring them in very easily, except ones that do not have a new version. Most of the add-ons the moment there is a new Firefox version release their own version or a patch.

I think, it may be helpful
Have you got this issue figured out?
I can't remember how I fixed it (or even whether I did so). The great thing about losing short-term recall is finding these things out about myself -- here, that I was smart enough to ask for help! Sorry I can't pass along what worked, though. . . .
I had that problem with Flock. I can't get it to stop crashing. I'm back to using Firefox.
just reinstall your firefox, you won't lose your add-ons.
You could look at my hub on "firefox add-ons" and back up all your add-on settings, if needed.
As a precaution you can save your plugins and extensions. They are all in Program Files/Mozilla FireFox. COPY not MOVE them to another location.
reinstall FireFox with the latest version.
If the reinstall did not keep the plugins and extensions, you can just copy them back.
The crash may be due to one or more of your extensions. Disable them and add them back one at a time.
I reckon it's windows, they see Firefox as a real threat to I.E. so they make it crash to upset users to bring them back, :-)

not all extensions play well together

For a browser, what is the difference between Add-ons, extensions, plugins and applications?They look like pretty same. Are they just different words for the same thing or is there some thenical differnce between them as well?

Why am I getting the message that add-ons not displaying?"An add-on for this website failed to run". I get this message on about half of my hubs. The add that is supposed to be displayed is blank, therefore no revenue. Also, suddenly most of the adds that do appear...

Has Anyone Installed the Latest Firefox Version?Firefox was simple, and had an intuitive layout. This latest version (29.0.1) is dreadful!

How do you stop continual pop-ups on Mozilla Firefox? Not sure when this started, but it is insane. I'll open up a tab, and it will open up another one automatically. Sometimes a video will start playing, making noise, and freaking me out from another room? What the heck? It doesn't stop!

Hi! I'm new to HubPages. Are there any advantages of using Mozilla Firefox over IE for SEO purposes?
