Removing The Cobwebs in Firefox

For some time now Firefox had been ‘acting up’.  I had just figured it was the sites I was going to even though they worked OK in Chrome. It couldn’t be my all time favorite browser Firefox! Or could it?

I was trying to change a setting in LastPass, but it didn’t save in Firefox. It worked in Chrome and it Edge, but not Firefox. There was no ‘’Save’ in Firefox! So it was my Firefox!

Chrome:

Firefox:

I thought it must be a setting somewhere in Firefox to enable the option to seeing ‘Save’ but I couldn’t find it.

I was also having to use Chrome for Chat pages as the Chat windows in Firefox were so big that there was no way to submit a reply and no way to resize the window. Everything I found on Google searches or Bing searches to resize the window didn’t work. (So why wouldn’t I admit it was Firefox?)

I tried removing all the extensions in Firefox, that didn’t help. Resetting Firefox didn’t help. Somewhere there was a bit of corruption in Firefox, but where?

I bit the bullet and opened Revo Uninstaller Pro and uninstalled Firefox.

After I downloaded and reinstalled Firefox, all is well.

The cobwebs have been removed!
