    Oh yeah. Also make sure spyware is not messing with your settings. Run antispyware and antivirus, restart, and you should be good to go. You might still need to reinstall it too.

    Did you fully uninstall FF before reinstalling it ? As HERE

    "To uninstall Firefox, its settings and remaining files, first save a copy of your bookmarks.Go to Bookmarks/Manage bookmarks/File/Export/bookmarks.htm and save.

    Next, remove Firefox using the Add/Remove Software utility in Windows.

    Then delete the Firefox settings and files. To do that, delete the folder "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox."
