Firefox issues (troubleshooting)


Recommended Posts

One of the most popular internet browsers out there today is Firefox with Chrome being second and Safari next and Internet Explorer consistently falling to last place because of its proprietary features and Microsoft coding.


Why is Firefox, Chrome and Safari doing so well. They are built to run on any website not just those websites created with Microsoft FrontPage.  Also Firefox and Chrome work on most operating system platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux)...  IE only works on windows.


So some simple things to do to troubleshoot Firefox.

1. Reset Firefox by typing in the address bar..    about:config

2. Click Reset Firefox


Now maybe when you launch firefox it crashes...  try and launch it via safe-mode

Windows: "C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe" -safe-mode

Mac: Hold the Option key while launching Firefox

Linux: from command line firefox -safe-mode
