When I start FF, the screen looks normal, but if I open a page, the browser window remains blank, but I can tell the page is being dowloaded by modem & disc activity. If I open more than one tab, I can only tell they (or anything)are open because when I close FF it warns me that I'm closing multiple tabs. If I click on the recent URL down arrow, a blank list opens on the left side of the screen. The File, Edit, View, etc, buttons do not function, although "double-click to check for updates" does work.
I've uninstalled, rebooted, and re-installed to no avail. Any suggestions?
I had similar serious issues moving from 1.0.2 to 1.0.3 where the menus were extraordinarily slow to open and I could not browse any pages. Disabling them requires editing some config files, v. [kb.mozillazine.org...] .
In my case the main culprit turned out to be User Agent Switcher 0.6.5, so I have uninstalled it until the next version is released.
CTRL-ALT-DEL > Task Manager > Select the Firefox process > End Process.
Once you have done that you can open the browser and it will work properly, however this quick fix won't stop the problem re-occurring.
