    OK, I started using Firefox after haveing been beaten into submission by certain members of this forum and I love it.

    I use Gmail because it works well.

    The two are NOT working together.

    If I use my AOL (Don't start!) to access Gmail, all is well.

    When I load into FF, all I get is a little box in the upper left of my screen which will not enlarge, most of the buttons are not clickable and I can't read the emails.

    Gmail will work fine through IE also.

    It's got to be some setting but I can't find it and I've tried everything that I can think of.

    "I wanted to tear my hair out!"

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    If I don't get this fixed, I'm going to have to go on some kind of medication I think.

    Help me, please as I think I've fallen down!

    First of all welcome to the Fire Fox club ;). I don't know what your predicament is. I'm using Fire Fox portable. I don't have any problems with that at all.

    I forgot to mention that although I run Norton, CCleaner, AVG, the antivirus stuff in Ghost Surf, Spybot and Adaware, my FF seems to deteriorate and I have to re-load it about once a week.

    Can't find anything wrong with the box and also have Windows Defender, have the Windows firewall shut off and run Windows Malicious Shit Removal Tool often.

    Theeese theeeng, she makeeeng me keraazzzyyyyyy!

    Ouch! So many programs you have running! It would be a hard case to determine what the problem is from the looks of it. But the windows firewall is off so I really don't understand why your FF is acting up. Maybe something somewhere is being blocked or frozen?

    Could be! I will delve into each program to check the settings.

    Greetings Uptownbulker,

    First off, there's a great utility for backing up your Firefox. "If you didn't know about it already"

    FEBE: (Firefox Environment Backup Extension)
    http://customsoftwareconsult.com/extensions/febe/febe.html

    Second, "Don't get me started about Norton"... ;)

    I myself prefer NOD32 or Antiver, just started using the Agnitum Security Suite on my MS Server 2008 and it seems to be OK and plays well with the Vista/Longhorn platforms.


    I would only have Norton and S&D with teatimer enabled for start-up.

    Only run AVG as an on demand scanner as well as ADaware or anything else as far as that matters.

    Dump the windows defender crap - worthless POS.

    I've never used GhostSurf so I am not familiar with it.

    I have a linux box for anoniminity needs. ;)


    Remember, more ain't better when it comes to software. "Also easier to read your event logs".


    If you have downloaded any new firefox extensions, disable them.

    Restart firefox.

    If your still having problems after this - backup firefox - re-install.

    That's about all I can recommend without having a look at your logs.


    Mindseye.
