I can pull up same sites in IE and see no problem. Downloading files or viewing pictures is extremely slow anywhere you go. If I completely uninstall (thank you very much for the hassle of how it messes up my bookmarks - causing me to spend considerable time rearranging them - thanks for nothing!), reinstall the previous version, everything is ok again. Install the latest again, problem comes back. You really screwed this version up!!! And no, I'm NOT going to create another profile - you people should have been professional enough to make this work right the first time! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install v.1.5 - that's all you have to do - it's a dog! 2. 3. Expected Results: I expect the Firefox browser to work like before if not better than before when I install the latest version - duh!
Shutdown FF and go to the profile folder and delete the downloads.rdf file. Does that help?
Nevermind. Turned out my ISP was about to flake out just as I was having this problem. Sorry - makes me feel like an Mongoloid Chicken Little!
