Firefox 3.5.10 won't run Windows 7

I've been running Firefox with no problems on my Windows 7 64 Bit Enterprise system.
Then, an update is installed and it no longer loads (something about versions incompatible). I suspected an add-on had caused this so I uninstalled Firefox, deleted all folders relating to Firefox and reinstalled Firefox 3.5.10 from scratch. No I get an error saying:

'The procedure entry point js_NextActiveContext could not be located in the dynamic link library js3259.dll'

Any ideas on how to get this working again?

Have you tried system restore to a point before the Firefox update?

I would uninstall it one more time. Download a full fresh install of Firefox. Right click it, select Run as Admin. This time when installing it give it a different location. Don't use the default location.

If you still get errors, create a new Firefox Profile.

Hope this helps.

Complete reinstall did the trick. There was an issue because I was running it on a home domain so some information was being held in a redirected folder.
