  1. Hey all,
    My firefox was working great when suddenly I could no longer open new windows. I use Mac OSX. I also have trouble when clicking on links, the secondary page doesn't open. I'm not that tech savy so any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    try reloading the app
    save the profile first
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

    Administrator ---->or user name

    Its a Mac, so there isn't a C:\Docs & Settings\ect...

    If you haven't customized it too much then my suggestion would be to delete ~/Library/Preferences/org.mozilla.firefox.plist

    Maybe copy that to your desktop before you delete it just so you have a backup if something goes wrong.

    Its not a Windows box, reinstalling on a Windows box resets preferences and registery crap. In OS X, you don't have a registry, all the crap that is typically in a 'registry key' is in a .plist file, which is what I suggested she delete.
