Sounds like a bad install

In reply to: Firefox

I would first uninstall the app using the Add/Remove Programs thing in the control pannel. Then go into C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\ and delete the Mozilla folder. (Application Data is a hidden folder, so you might need to change your view options)

After which, reinstall Firefox, and my guess is things will work. If not, there's something else wrong with your OS install. I'm not aware of any spyware for IE that would affect the installation of Firefox, but I also wouldn't be surprised to know such existed. It'd keep a lot of people using IE so the spyware program can collect more data.

doing yewanchors excellent suggestion, try this first, ok, it looks as though you are trying to install the spellbound (spell checker) extension, ok, going to http://spellbound.sourceforge.net/ and click on the ''installation'' link located in the top, right hand corner of the page, then choose the very first one that reads, ''Install SpellBound for Firefox 1.0.x Release (e.g. 1.0 through 1.0.3)'' (trust me, this will work) and install, close firefox and then reopen it, now you need to install the dictionary, here http://dictionaries.mozdev.org/ and choose whatever dictionary you use for it. I don't think that spellbound has it's versions for FFv1.04 yet which is why you may be experiencing problems. If it does not work, then try yewanchors advise and uninstall then reinstall FF, the sole beauty of FF is that it can easily be fixed by doing this. good luck.
