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?

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?

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 -
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.
