Firefox was hanging up, I uninstalled and downloaded firefox 18. It will not load, says I have to remove older versions which I have done several times

I can't load firefox 18. It asks if I want to uinstall older version if you answer no it dumps you out. If you answer yes it reboots and nothing changes

Please turn off the computer and turn it back on to see if it helps.
Also please try a clean profile.
Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a ''Clean reinstall''. This means you remove Firefox and any leftover program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps one by one:
#Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org and save the setup file to your computer.
#After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu) and confirm all upcoming messages.
#Now, uninstall Firefox by following the steps mentioned in the [[Uninstall Firefox from your computer#w_uninstall-firefox|Uninstall Firefox]] article.
'''IMPORTANT:''' On Windows, the uninstaller has the option to remove your personal data and settings. Make sure that you do '''not''' check this option; otherwise all of your bookmarks, passwords, extensions, user customizations and other Firefox [[Profiles|user profile data]] will be removed from your computer.
After uninstalling Firefox on Windows, delete the "Mozilla Firefox" program folder, located by default in one of these locations:
* '''(On 32-bit Windows)''' ''C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox''
* '''(On 64-bit Windows)''' ''C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox''
#Go to the Windows Start menu and click on "Computer".
#In the Explorer window that opens, double click Local Disk (C:) to open the C:\ drive.
#Find the "Program Files (x86)" folder or "Program Files" folder.
#* On 32-bit Windows, double-click the '''Program Files''' folder to open it.
#* On 64-bit Windows, you will see a "Program Files (x86)" folder AND a "Program Files" folder. Open the '''Program Files (x86)''' folder.
#Look for a '''Mozilla Firefox''' folder. If you find one, right-click it and select ''Delete'' and confirm that you want to move the folder to the Recycle Bin.
Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
#Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
#Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.
Please report back to see if this helped you!

    Hello there Hotley808,
    I would recommend deleting the app, and then redownloading it from the iOS App store.
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519
    Apps on iOS
    Open the App Store on your device.
    Make sure you are signed in with the same Apple ID used for the original purchase.
    Tap Updates from the bottom navigation bar. 
    Tap Purchased on the resulting screen.
    Locate the app in your Purchased tab.
    Tap the download button.
    All the very best,

  • Version 3.6.6 and Internet explorer will not load sites, so I reloaded the older 3.6.3 of firefox and websites load fine. Internet Explorer still will not load. The error message corresponding with 3.6.6 was that there were problems with the proxy serve

    Upgraded to 3.6.6 and no sites loaded, error in proxy server. Internet explorer will not load either. Reloaded firefox 3.6.3 and sites load fine, but internet explorer still will not load. I was only able to connect to yahoo messenger when websites were not loading.
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == I upgraded to 3.6.6

    I have a problem with Firefox loading. It will not load and it says Firefox is using a proxy that refuses connection. Check with your network administrator. How do I get Firefox to work. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it twice. Any help would be great thanks.

  • Since updating I can't click on horizontally placed links, buttons etc have uninstalled and reinstalled still doing it. Cant even see how to get an older version that did work and have run a virus check. explorer works

    Firefox was automatically updated to 7 and now all the websites I go on the horizontal active things you would click on will not do anything. eg in ebay I can't access "My ebay" and in facebook can't click on my profile or messages, in Flickr I can't click on "Your Photostream" which means I can't use it. I tried explorer and all these work so it has to be firefox. I uninstalled and reinstalled and ran a complete system virus check on top of the active ongoing one and nothing no change. I am at a loss what to do now. A relative suggested downloading an older version that worked but I can't even see how to do that. I would appreciate help so I could use firefox as in the meantime I am stuck with exporer which I hate. Thanks

    This issue can be caused by the Yahoo! Toolbar extension

  • CS6 upgrade suddenly will not load, telling me it is a trial version of CS6 Ext and I must register.

    I upgraded from CS5 to CS6 for my IMac.  I downloaded CS6 put in my serial number and it worked fine for a number of weeks.  Suddenly, when I went to use it it said it was a trial version.  I had to register it to use my CS6   I registered it and it worked,  but only as a trial version of CS6 Extended. I do not want CS6 Extended.  I deleted it from my hard drive and once again downloaded my upgrade of CS6 again with my serial number and it worked fine for a couple of weeks. Today, once again, it tells me it is a trial version and will not load unless I register the trial version. What the heck is going on? This is crazy.  I simply want to use CS6, for which I paid. Help!

    Hi tabitha1 ,
    Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a ''Clean reinstall''. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Usually, when you uninstall Firefox using the uninstaller, it will leave behind all of the user settings. If the user settings have been modified by a third party program or extension, you will first need to remove the settings.<br>
    To do so, please follow these steps:
    '''Note:''' You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
    #Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org and save the setup file to your computer.
    #After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu).
    #Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
    #*'''Mac:''' Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
    #Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
    ##Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
    ##Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.
    More information about reinstalling Firefox can be found [[Troubleshoot and diagnose Firefox problems#w_5-reinstall-firefox|here]].
    <b>WARNING:</b>Do not use a third party uninstaller as part of this process. Doing so could permanently delete your [[Profiles|Firefox profile]] data, including but not limited to, extensions, cache, cookies, bookmarks, personal settings and saved passwords. <u>These cannot be easily recovered unless they have been backed up to an external device!</u> See [[Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles]]. <!-- Starting in Firefox 31, the Firefox uninstaller no longer lets you remove user profile data.Ref: Bug 432017 and https://support.mozilla.org/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer/discuss/5279 [Fx31] Windows uninstaller will no longer offer the option to remove personal data -->
    Hopefully this will fix your Firefox issue. If not, please feel free to write below and the support team can provide you with some additional assistance.

  • I downloaded and installed Firefox 4, but it won't open. I have used an older version of Firfox for a long time. I now have nothing. What gives?

    I've used an older version (3.?) of Firefox for a long time. I had loads of bookmarks. I downloaded the new Firefox 4. It won't open and the older version is now gone. I use a Mac with a 400 MHz PowerPC G4 with 1.12 GB SDRAM and a 60 GB Internal Hard Drive. I'm running Mac OS X Version 10.4.11. I really need to recover the older version of Firefox or make the new version work.

    Firefox 4 requires at least OS X 10.5 and an Intel Mac. There is a third party version of Firefox 4 that runs on OS X 10.4/10.5 and PPC Macs, for details see http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox
    If you prefer, you can get the latest version of Firefox 3.6 from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
