What can I do about this: After upgrading to firefox 6, I get this error. TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined???

What can I do about this:
After upgrading to firefox 6, I get this error.
When I click to open Firefox, A box open with the following error:
JAVASCRIPT Application
TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined?
After I click close on the box, then Firefox will start. I really just want to get the error fixed so that when I want firefox open, I don't have to see this box anymore.

You need to figure out which add-on is causing that error and disable it until the developer of that add-on fixes it. There may be an error message about that in the Error Console, accessed through the Web Developer menu item or through {Ctrl + Shft + J}.

  • Get error "TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined" and can't load web pages. Problem with Firefox 5?

    I tried repeatedly to load Firefox 5. The Error "TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined" keeps coming up. The browser loads but any URL I enter doesn't load. Sites activated by buttons do load. Internet Explorer works.

    07-05-11 When I turned on my laptop (Vista) this morning, I got a Start in Safe Mode and Repair message so I did. It suggested a System Restore, I hit OK. When it started like normal, I waited a few minutes then TRIED to launch Firefox 5.0 but kept getting a Mozilla Crash Report dialogue. So I instead opened Firefox 4.0b12 --error free-- so I could get here to get help. When I tried the Run... firefox.exe -profilemanager step, I get the subject error. When I try to open FF 5.0 in Safe Mode by holding down the shift key simultaneously, I get the subject error and no launch (though no Crash box either). I will try to let the FF 5.0 Updater run when it appears again but it never lets me choose when to Ask Again so I don't think it'll show again until tomorrow. Sigh. Oh, and like someone at a different version of this error blog re WinVista 32bit, now I'm getting the issue of Enter not executing the URL typed in the address bar; I had to click the arrow.
    I hope the Update is to fix this problem.

    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

  • Receiving this error "TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined" when opening Firefox 4. Never received this prior to upgrading to version 4.

    Also receiving this error when logging on to some websites. Able to close the error screen and continue but it is aggravating.

  • I install compatibility reporter in my Mozilla firefox 5 running under Windows 7 and get message - TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined, what is causing it please?

    I am having to install Compatibility reporter so that Google toolbars will work. This used to be ok, but now I am getting the message-TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined. I am running under Windows 7 any idea how |I can get round it please?

    If you force an extension to install by overriding the compatibility then the result can be unpredicted.<br />
    The extension may work or may not work or cause error messages like you posted.<br />
    You always need to be careful with forcing extensions to install.
    You may need to check extensions.checkCompatibility prefs on the <b>about:config</b> page.

  • After downloading 4.0 I get this message: JavaScript application can't create mcafee plug-in object: TypeError: components.classes[cid] is undefined

    I finished downloading Firefox 4.o to my Mac OS.X.
    When I try to open a website I get the message:
    [JavaScript Application] can't create mcafee plug-in object: TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined
    If I click the OK button, the site opens, but without the McAfee alert at the bottom of the window.
    I had just downloaded 3.6.16, and got box suggesting download version 4.0 for better security, but that seems to be where the problem is!

    That indicates that an add-on you are using is not compatible, considering the other errors it is possibly the McAfee add-on. To confirm what add-on is causing this use the procedure in this link - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

  • After I downloaded Firefox 4 and I try to open Firefox, I get this error message, "plug-in object: TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined". I click "OK"; Firefox opens and works just fine. Any suggestions??

    Not much to add. Before Firefox will open, I get this error message, "plug-in object: TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined". I click the "OK" button; Firefox opens and I have no further problems.
    I use an Apple with OS v. 10.6.7 and had no problems until I downloaded Firefox 4.0

    This type of error is typically caused by an incompatible/malfunctioning extension. Try the procedure in the [[troubleshooting extensions and themes]] article.
    The AVG safe search add-on is one that has caused this error.

  • I am getting an error message when I open Firefox 5 (Win.Vista) "TypeError:Components.classes[cid] is undefined." How can I get rid of this? Thank you.

    Only started since the upgrade. Windows Vista Home 32 bit.
    The error message reads:
    "TypeError:Components.classes[cid] is undefined."

    Try the suggested idea above. I just disabled all the add-ons which were not compatible with FF 5 and did a FF restart. That fixed the problem. I then enabled each one, one at a time, with a FF restart until the problem came back. I then disabled that add-on.
