    Fire(Dog!) 3.6.3

    Hi Folks. This is my 4th day with the abovementioned beast, (Firefox to others.) I think the last was 3.5x. It was as smooth as silk. This one stops responding about 5 or 6 times a day, anywhere, not just in AP. I was about to say I don't care about any reasons any more, but I'd like to know if anyone has found similar stutterings with this program version. All settings are as I had before.
    Thanks, Am.
    PS I'm using XP Pro.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    So I suppose the obvious process would be to disable all the plugins and see if that keeps 'er running smoothly, and then enable the addons one by one.

    and then take it from there.

    Oh my lordy me! No wonder you are having problems! The really amazing thing is that you have loaded your browser down with those 18 zillion useless plugins and it still works at all.

    1: save your bookmarks to file somewhere safe
    2: unistall Firefox through add/remove programs
    3: go to documents and settings\yourusername\application data\mozilla\ and delete the entire Firefox folder
    4: delete the Firefox folder from program files as well (it may have already deleted itself)
    5: reboot
    6: install Firefox
    7: do not put all those plugins back!

    Warning: you may have difficulty playing some of your downloaded material after doing this - there is some pretty nasty DRM stuff in your plugins list. That can't be helped now.

    I am doubtful that even this method will result in success - if your Firefox is so grossly loaded down with junky add-ins, chances are that your entite windows system will be just as bad or worse. You can try to clean out a skuggish, junk-riddled Windows system but it is usually far quicker, easier, and cheaper to wipe it clean and start again from scratch.

    I'm quite serious - that's a real mess. Start again is best. Take it to an experienced professional if you are not up to doing it yourself.

    But you are a computer professional with expertise in exactly this field and are thus big enough and ugly enough to look after yourself in this regard.

    Am has a sick system, he is asking for help, and he has 30 plug-ins including "security" toolbars, known bad-egg problem children (no names here but as a hint, their initials start with "Real Networks") and a whole swag of ugly-looking DRM junk. Now maybe there is some other cause we don't know about, but when I hear someone saying their arm hurts and I can see blood running down their shirt sleeve, I tend to assume that they have a nasty cut. I could be wrong, but it has to be the best first guess and a pretty good bet.

    Tannin. Of those I don't know about are the DRMs, but I assume they installed with FF 3.6.3. The add-ons I did install, and use them occasionally. But I wasn't overly aware of the Browsing Protection Toolbar. I may go and look into that (2morrow, though, as I'm nodding.... offf..f.f.ff.)
    Thanks and again to the others. Am.

    A Java update arrived 2 days ago and I installed it. Since then FF3.6 has been very stable. (Fancy, a Java update!) Am.
