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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
