  • I'm sorry that I don't know. Make sure you have the latest version of Firefox and the addons.

  • Try uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it. Go to Start button- Control Panel- Install/Uninstall programs- find FFox-click UNINSTALL and then use IE to find and redownload FF.

  • I would first run an anti virus scan. If you can find a way, get a hold of malwarebytes from it is free and is one of the best anti spyware/malware programs out there. Download it and run a scan. If it finds a virus/trojan/worm it will destroy it. Sometimes you can determine what the problem is by starting FF in safe-mode with all the extensions/add-ons off. Go to mozilla and check the forums for your issue and maybe they can direct you to a better solution. Good Luck.
