Did you try a fresh profile or safemode?
Summary: Crash when attempting to start firefox broswer. → Hang when attempting to start Firefox
yep on both counts. Nada thing on safe mode or fresh profile. Ive been using Firefox for almost a year last time it happend i just did a fresh install and it worked...well not this time.
You need to make sure you are starting in safe-mode correctly: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode
yeah im running it correctly and it still just hangs. Cant do anything with it.
Have you tried putting the application on another location? Some firewalls get in their minds that an application has changed, that you disagreed with that and is refusing now to let it make connections to other ports and addresses. You could also open your firewall, delete any rule for Firefox but also delete all its fingerprinting identification marks for Firefox. I personally have such a firewall (old Tiny Personal Firewall) that gets corrupted once in a half year and this treatment always helps.
Nope No go either. Did it and still not working. It just ...hangs...stops working so to say. Using opera is gettin really annoying lol
WFM FF 1.5 Please reopen if this still happens. (Cody doesn't appear to reaachable)
