  • OT, Firefox problem

    I've had a prob with Firefox in the last couple of days.
    Since it automatically downloaded an "upgrade", I've been having probs with menu buttons etc. Couple of pics below show what I mean. Note that the normal buttons are reduced to little boxes on google. The menus at the bottom of HSM BBS, I've never seen before and I can't do anything with. I even had problems with the photobucket menu when trying to upload these pics. The normal buttons were missing/hidden.
    Anyone experienced this or have any ideas?

    uninstall and reinstall do not let it up grade by itself.

      Hi Swarf,

      It looks like you have the small icons selected. On the top menu, select:

      View -> Toolbars -> Customize

      ...and uncheck the "Use Small Icons" checkbox at the very bottom.

      Then reset the text size back to normal with:

      View -> Text Size -> Normal

        Thanks for the suggestions guys, but text size/icons are not the prob and I've already tried uninstall, re-install and even downloaded the latest 2.0.0.3 to no avail.

          That's weird -- that sounds like your FireFox profile got corrupted.
          Try uninstalling FireFox, and then deleting your FireFox profile and the Mozilla FireFox directory in:

          C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox

          Make sure you back up your favorites first.

          Also, for a clean FireFox install, you need to delete the Mozilla FireFox directory in C:\Program Files after you uninstall.
