Firefox stopped working (help please !)

Firefox suddenly stopped working last night ( when I click on it - nothing happens) Although driving me crazy ! Internet Explorer works ok. O/S is Vista.

If I uninstall / reinstall FF, will I loose all my bookmarks ?

Or is there another solution ?

Any help much appreciated, Cheers...

try this

1) Use Mozbackup to backup your bookmarks and settings.

2) Uninstall Firefox.

3) Delete this folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\%username&\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox

4) Download Firefox using IE

5) Reinstall Firefox

6) Start up Firefox (don't import anything) and close it (this is to create a new profile)

6) Use MozBackup to restore your profile settings

for the record, the bookmarks are already there just hidden. they are located in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in the bookmarks folder. just a matter of copy and paste

Yeah I guess, as above, to me google is just basic and should really only be used as a portable browser, all down to opinion though.
