PostSubject: Mozilla Firefox   Tue Dec 29, 2015 4:49 pm

If any of you use Firefox, you might find this useful. I've been using it for a number of years without any problems or major issues.

Yesterday, I received a system message indicating that an update was available and suggesting I should install it. Having no reason to doubt the integrity, I did so.

Huge mistake!!!!!!!


I have spent the last 36 hours (give or take ) trying to get things back to normal on my PC....still not perfect, but better than yesterday, last night and most of today.

Has anyone been affected in the same way???


I would humbly suggest that anyone using FF and sees the update message, ignore it for the moment.

No mine is fine. I recently updated as I cannot open notifications on here but even with the update I still cannot open so Firefox is fine for now, but will not update if I get the notification just in case. Thanks for the heads up.

Hi Justbazz
I presume you do not have the Beta version installed?

If not then the below might shed light??

Apologies for the delayed reply...I spent hours on the help and support sections of FF with little success...they freely admitted that quite a high number of other users were having problems after installing the latest update, but nothing they suggested would work for me.

I ended up doing a system restore a couple of hours ago...and it seems to be working OK now. It was a right PITA for a while, resetting all the passwords (even the one for this forum), but finally got it done.

Fingers crossed it keeps on working .

Yes, VG, that's the one which gave me grief...I went back to 43.0.1 and it's working perfectly again.

I have W8.1 Industry Pro (imbedded) and it didn't like something in the update.
