    So uhm, yeah, Firefox is acting up on me... it suddenly decided to stop working and now it won't show up my 'Tools' tab content, and none of the add-ons are working either, no Chatzilla, no PicLens, no ABP, no nothing!

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and nothing, it still doesn't work.
    Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Any idea on how I can fix this? It's pretty annoying >___>

    I'm running ffox 3.0.1 btw.

    Try this:
    Close Firefox. Make sure you can see hidden files/folders on your hard disk.

    Navigate to your Firefox Profile Folder (C:\Users\<Windows login/user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>) in windows explorer. Delete these three files: extensions.ini extensions.cache extensions.rdf. Now run Firefox and your extensions should come back - hopefully.

    I haven't had that happen to me, but the page I'm typing this on suddenly got supersized.

    Well, tried that and still, not working.
    I noticed, now it says that ChatZilla is not compatible with 3.0.1, but I was on the IRC last night o___O.
    PicLens works now, but no luck with ABP... Thanks for the help though.

    Reason for your problem: Windows + FireFail.

    Solution: Get Opera. For IRC, get x-chat (ask mac-mini for a link) or LeafChat.
