Hi there,

Have you tried running firefox in safe mode?

It could be a corrupt add-on that is causing you problems.

HI Little K

We tried running firefox in safe mode --> it doesn't help

We removed all Add-ons but it also doesn't help

Have you tried creating a new firefox profile?

We installed the old version 3.5 on a test pc and it does help , we can save documents..

Then we installed the new version 3.6.13 and we can't save anything --> it hangs....

Hi Taum00,

My only suggestion then would be to downgrade to 3.5 for the time being.

Hopefully somebody else has a solution cause I'm out of ideas.

Sorry and good luck
