    In this few days, suddently i cant get the firefox browser working and i dont have this problem before that. When every time i open firefox browser, it keep getting refresh but not loading the page. What ever address i try to go, it show blank screen only.

    Currently i am using IE browser and its working fine. So any idea why i can use IE browser without any problem and why suddently firefox browser not working. Thanks :(

    weird, try to use a portable version of ff
    at the same time im not sure if you uninstall ff, its a total uninstall or it's leaving behind some files....so after you uninstall, you should search manually for directories relating to ff in your program files folder and documents and settings folder and if you find anything remove it, reinstall ff and see what happens
    or if u are using windows and the system restore is on, you can try to restore your system before this problem occured first

    Disable All Extensions themes and Plug ins

    To Do that Tools===========>Addons
    Restart FireFox

    After you uninstall Firefox, delete Firefox directory: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox"
    Clean Firefox registry, then Reinstall your latest firefox.
