My Firefox browser is broken. SpyderWeb msg:1590220 1:57 am on Feb 27, 2005 (gmt 0) My Firefox browser is broken. Added many extensions at the same time and now: No scroll bar. Highlighted toolbar items present a black fill drop down box.
Tried uninstall/reinstall, no go.
Works in safe mode.
I’d like to remove all extension and start fresh, but can’t explore my options – there blacked out.

In safe mode I: Delete extensions, no go. Deleted themes – it works now!
Best to add items one at a time to Firefox, I guess.
But now I have a “Sage” RSS reader sidebar that when the “X” is click it will not close, I’d like to get rid of this since it can’t be closed.
Any ideas how to?

You might want to do a semi-clean or clean uninstall.
Semi-Clean: This will usually fix problems.
Uninstall Firefox - Delete the programs file folder. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\some 8 digit #. Copy that to another folder - Delete the profile - Reinstall Copy fhe profile back You will not lose your extensions.
Clean: Same as above but just delete the profile and reinstall extensions.
Hope that helps.

Lost all my bookmarks, but I back to a browser I can work with. Love the tab feature. IE is still useful.
