Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on Firefox icon
2.Page starts to load
3.Computer does not shut down but screen goes black with "Video Mode Not Supported " msg. Only way to get out is do a hard shutdown.

Actual Results:  
Continuous loop... try to open Firefox... black screen... Video Mode Not Supported msg

Expected Results:  

Tried reloading &/or different versions of Flash but not sure I'm getting all traces removed and a clean install. Nor am I sure I'm installing the right Flash or if it makes any difference to Firefox.

Thank you
Try finding your profile folder ( ) and deleting localstore.rdf

This will make firefox forget some of your settings (windows positions, toolbar positions, customized toolbars, etc) but nothing too important.
