  1. I was having problems accessing my local news streaming their news & it even happened in Firefox safemode.
    Long story short, when I used revo to uninstall FF on my W7, I noticed versions going back as far as 10.1. Is that normal? I've only had this pc for 11 months.

    Yes , I would think. All FF dose is update over top the old version.

    Wow, sounds like alot of unnecessary bloat to me. Probably better to do a fresh install then?

    Yes it is better to do a fresh install. Most all of them including IE do this when they update.

    I'd say it's not all that normal. I've only got one Mozilla Firefox in my Revo. Save your bookmarks etc and do a fresh install.

    I did exactly that on my W7. On my laptop, I removed everything:( .
    I had only one version in revo,it was during the uninstall I saw ALL the past versions.
    I was going to do a screen print but............

    Well, since IE is part of the OS, one can't uninstall it to do a "new" install.

    Most of the time it is normal to have past version if you just update.
