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.

Id like to remove all extension and start fresh, but cant explore my options there blacked out.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Stephen

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, Id like to get rid of this since it cant be closed.
Any ideas how to?

Thanks,
Stephen

You can't break fire! Just don't through too much in to it! ;-D

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.

A clean install got it working.
1.)uninstalled Firefox
2.)deleted Mozilla folder in program files
3.)deleted Mozilla folder Iczer mentioned within documents and settings
4.)reinstalled Firefox

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