Help. Sad

I hate this browser. No piece of software has even been so impossible to maintain.

What did you do...

I have gone through BETAS of firefox and not had the issues you describe (on windows). I suggest deleting the program (uninstall) and then delete your firefox folder if still resident and also your profile folders... basically any and all signs of its existence. Then reboot, and reinstall.
