John Wilkinson's help in the forum sticky in this forum helps;
It offers options to repair Firefox, delete profiles and uninstall/reinstall, etc.
I have a PC with Windows Xp Pro sp2 and all the necessities (firewall, anti-visurs, anti-spyware anti-this/that software + I regularly clean my dump files and unnecessary stuff in the registry).
It started the day before yesterday: I could not access my gmail account with Firefox properly, could log in but no message list would appear. At the same time, Internet Explorer and Chrome worked just fine. Then I went to upload pics like I usually do (to Facebook and another site). I always go to another tab meanwhile and surf the net, only this time Firefox interrupted the uploads immediately and started making copies of the pics.
I tried to write an email with another web account but every time I visit another tab and return, the whole text is gong and the space is blank!
What could be wrong? I tried filling out all kinds of forms and then leaving them half done and clicking on another tab and then returning. and always, the text disappears. I'm writing this at work with the same version of Firefox and have tried to interrupt this several times. Never has the text disappeared. At home all the other Browsers work just fine and the tabs allow surfing back and forth.
What can I do? I already reinstalled Firefox, but that did not help.
I also cleaned the computer completely using Advanced System Care.
I can always just go back to using ie and Chrome but I like Firefox more. This is really annoying because it sort of takes the idea of using tabs away! I'd be grateful to hear of any ideas.
I have a two-year old desktop PC and a cable connection and enough memory and all that. Have not installed anything lately.
