downloaded Firefox....now problems!

by jellybean3009 / August 4, 2012 2:05 AM PDT

I downloaded Firefox and I have had nothing but problems when I tried to use my main browser IE. When I open IE a page this is displaced:
"IE is currently running with add-ons disabled. Click here to manage, disbale,or remove your add-ons." This is displayed before I can click on 'home' and go to my homepage. What did I do wrong? How can I switch back so when I use IE, it will go directly to me home page? Also, I can't access videos anymore. It says I need to 'upgrade' my video player which I have done but the same message keeps appearing. However, they play fine using Google Chrome or Firefox.

1. Remove all add-ons.
2. Install Flash.

Usually I add other protection such Web Of Trust (WOT) too.
