Howdy gents & ladies:

So, I turn on my computer today and immediately click on Mozilla Firefox (as I do everyday) to do my morning browsing on the net before getting a shower.

Normally, the W is my homepage. However, today nothing loaded and my Firefox loading info bar thing (at the bottom of the window) says "Locating home.mozilla.org" or something similar. Once in a while Firefox resets itself and I lose my bookmarks. Boo-hoo, I can live with it because I don't have to worry about IE 5 and spyware, etc. So I wait...and nothing loads. And I wait some more, and Windows tells me that Mozilla ain't workin' and I gotta quit it. I tried IE 5 and it works. I ran virus scans and spyware scans and still no dice. And then I uninstalled Mozilla and reinstalled it. Still won't work.

What the hell's up? What should I do?

I'd try updating if possible.
(If you haven't already on the reinstall)
I'm using the 1.0.6 en-GB version
Did you restart between uninstall and reinstall? Sometimes that helps.

It still finds ways to stymie my (admittely less-than-computer literate) mother, though. Thankfully, all the issues are on Yahoo's end, not ours. Problem is all the issues are on Yahoo's end, and therefore there's nothing we can do about it.
