Lately, no matter how many times I restart my computer, I can't start Firefox. I double-click the icon, and wait about 5 seconds, until my pointer shows that nothing is trying to load up anymore.

The only thing that's changed while I've been on my computer, is that I tried to connect to my school's public internet line last night (2-23). It was working perfectly fine before I tried that.

Thanks for any help.

I've tried to reinstall over the old one, twice in the last two days. Just now, I unistalled it, and reinstalled it again.

Sad No luck.

(Also, since those "insta-messages" don't appear with IE, I'm only going to approve pictures until I get this sorted out, if that's okay)

I always keep IE installed on my computer, in case anything happens. Firefox is my default though.

Apparently though, it's a compatibility issue with Firefox and Vista. There are others with the problem, so it might not be possible to get it resolved here. :\ Unless someone does come up with a magical solution.

It's a new problem with it. It was reported on Feb 12th, and I didn't get it till a few days ago.

I suspect you'll have problems with it eventually. not

Indeed, let it update.

Oh, just to save you some time, it's impossible to uninstall IE without having trouble with it in future...

Yeah, that's what I'm doing. In the meantime, since I can't stand IE, I'm using Google Chrome. If anyone else has internet/browser problems, use this. It's very nice to use. :]
