After the 24 Firefox update, Windows 7 64-bit breaks on reboot. The network in the taskbar icon is not ready (blue circle stopped).

After 24 of Firefox update, Windows 7 breaks after the reboot. The network in the taskbar icon is not ready (blue circle on the wireless network icon). But I can't do much. I can't open the network and sharing Center (never opened). Even the Task Manager hangs when I click to show processes from all users. I have to do a system restore for a network working again. I never even launched Firefox.

Wow... I finally have the solution. Windows updates have been applied at the same time I updated Firefox. Bluetooth driver is what broke (which is part of the Centrino wireless). I ended up installing the latest driver from Intel, Windows Update, and then update Firefox... and all is well.

I thank very you much for all your help. Take care.

  • Firefox shows upwards on the taskbar but will not maximize when clicking on window

    I tried re installation, but when I click the icon it will appear on the taskbar but will not maximize.

    It is a more detailed explanation of the above.

    Sometimes, a window is "off the screen" somehow. Often, you can force it to appear on the screen by right clicking on the thumbnail image just above the taskbar and choose expand. Does it work?

    A possible cause for this is that the file that stores the positions and sizes of window is corrupt.

    #1 method: If you can get a zoomed window:

    Open the settings folder (AKA Firefox profile) current Firefox help

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • (menu bar) Help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    In the first table of the page, click on the view file"" button. This should launch a new window that lists the various files and folders in Windows Explorer.

    Leave this window open, switch back to Firefox and output, either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    Pause while Firefox finishing its cleanup, then rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

    #2 method: If you can not get a Firefox window for all:

    Close Firefox by right clicking the icon in the taskbar > close all windows.

    Using the Run dialog box (windows key + R) or the search for the start bar menu (or Windows 8.1 may bar charms bar research?) type or paste the following and press ENTER to drill down to the profiles folder:


    Here you can see a folder - in this case, double-click that - or more than one case - in this case, double-click on in what looks like the most recently updated.

    Scroll down and rename xulstore.json to something like xulstore.old. If you see a file named localstore.rdf, rename this to localstore.old.

    Launch Firefox back up again. Windows normally appear again?

  • conflicts of Outlook and firefox on Windows XP 32-bit

    Problem reports and fix:
    Latest Firefox on Windows XP 32-bit.

    Earlier, Microsoft Office updates have been applied in the past months.

    There were a lot of problems where Outlook and Firefox seem to share the same video address space, parts of Windows Outlook appeared in the windows of Firefox and vice verse. It's a pain. I needed to have one or another stop for each other at work and then things got worse than that, Firefox crashing very often. So I did a system restore to the 01/01/2015, which has removed the MS Office updates. Then Firefox and then didn't start because he didn't like the system restore. Reinstalled Firefox on top of Firefox [uninstall] and it starts now.

    Now, Firefox and Outlook work well. Will not apply to MS Office updates as MS is not stable or worrying questions about Windows XP.

    The problem has been fixed. You are implying that restored system restored a video driver update and that was not the case. Yes, the video display problem in question, but it doesn't seem to be a video driver issue.

    I posted with the solution so that it would be here if someone had a similar problem. I don't know why you trying to tell me how to fix something I said has been set.

  • The desktop icons do not respond after the use of IE


    Anyone got a solution for this? When the computer is turned on I can use the icons on the desktop, no problem. However, after I used Internet Explorer from the desktop icons don't respond well the pograms can be opened from the start menu. As the recent problem I tried uninstalling some updates recently installed, without solving the problem. Using Windows Vista and IE9

    After that I used Internet Explorer from the desktop icons do not respond

    Does that mean exactly?   For example, what do you see?   For the best answer to this question, you could use ProcMon and know what modules are involved when you do what these are.   ;  )

    However, without using ProcMon you can check with the Manager task or resource or ProcExp monitor if there is always a hidden background iexplore.exe processes running or anything related to IE which started as a result of your using IE.   If so then try to kill these processes.   Etc.

    Related to this, you could also consider what you used IE before your symptoms occurred.   This means that would understand that make your "desktop icons" and change it to something more neutral.   For example, if you had clicked on was a shortcut Internet (aka the .url file) that requires a network connection, change for people who only runs locally, such as about: blank.   So if you could close the window that has opened and always use the shortcut you would have refined your description of symptom to involve the network connections.

    Related to that, would be your security package, for example, some are trying to act as a hidden proxy to "analyze" the HTTP traffic.   Then the problem would not be IE but the hidden proxy.  Etc.

    You can't wait for a "fix" until you have a fully understood symptom.   More details and diagnosis is necessary IMO.

  • Windows 7: how to pin the desktop on the taskbar icon?


    Usually I need use my PC in a way multi-tasking with many programs running at the same time.

    Can I know how to pin the desktop on the taskbar icon? This would allow me to go to the office directly without having to cut so many programs.

    Thank you


    Click on the rectangle at the end of the taskbar (to the right of the clock). Or simply press ' Windows & D ' together to minimize all windows and return to the office. It will be useful.

  • using the taskbar icon made a right-click menu options 'tasks' disappeared

    I'm on FF 34.0.5 running on Windows 7 Ultimate (V6.1 Build 7601, SP1). Since a few days the options of 'tasks' on the right, click on the menu of the taskbar icon disappeared. The rest is two (three times current running FF) lines: unpin and FF.
    I tried the solution proposed by without success. The browser.taskbar.lastgroupid keeps returning to this string "E7CF176E110C211B" as the set of users.
    I even uninstalled completely, including the folder in Program Files and my FF profile. None of the measures has helped.

    The highest browser.taskbar... has the same value after re-installation. The key containing this value is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mozilla\Firefox\TaskBarIDs, with two values "default = not defined" and "C:\\Program Files (x 86) \\Mozilla Firefox" = "E7CF176E110C211B."

    How can I return this feature?
    Thanks for the help

    uninstall of FF and a cleaning the registry and program files/user data has helped.

  • XP... The desktop icons will not put

    XP... The desktop icons will not put. I did a lot of research on this issue, read the different responses on many forums, including and have tried much of the recommendations... I'm not familiar with the functions of establishment of the arrangement of the desktop icon and this is the first time I met this kind of problem. "Lock Web items on desktop" is checked, "Snap to grid" is not checked (my preference, but I find that it will check mysteriously itself after the icons rearrange themselves to the left of the screen, apparently by making use of automatic reorganization, even if it is not checked), I tried securityguy14 registry change response dated December 7, 2009 , have installed and use the program "Icon restore" that changes the Recycle Bin, my computer, and another icon of office, I do not remember to add a backup/restore function for the setting icon on the desktop... is what bought me a brief period of mental health before they rearrange themselves after a few constantly unidentifable strike entered sometimes without "rhyme or reason", not unique to anything, preventing me from shrink down to a specific cause. I conducted several audits of malware with paid and free programs and there is no indication of anything invading my system, it works fine other wise. Help!

  • on registration of the desktop icons are not displayed

    Registration using Windows XP, the desktop icons do not appear.

    You see only your background image and the wallpaper?

    Miss all your desktop icons and you don't see the taskbar at the bottom of the screen or are simply missing icons and you can see the taskbar at the bottom?

    Check the simple things first.  Right-click on an open space on your desktop, choose Arrange icons by and make sure the option show desktop icons has a check mark next to it.  This will work if you don't miss you that the desktop icons, but still see the Start button and the taskbar.  If you are missing as the Start button and the taskbar, which isn't your problem.

    If only you can see your wallpaper background picture and don't see the desktop icons and no start button or taskbar, this means that the explorer.exe program does not run (and it must be running) or the explorer.exe program are usually afflicted.  A good way to think about at the moment, it is that the process explorer.exe "is" your desktop.

    If this is the case of malware in general prepares.

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your version of XP and the Service Pack?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    Sometimes your anti malware program to quarantine (and indeed remove) your file explorer.exe (or other critical files on the XP system) if it finds that the file is infected.  The file may really be infected, but you can know for sure and then reconsider your anti malware options.

    First, you need to get your work desk in order to have room for manoeuvre, then you can solve your problem of potential malware.

    Of your background image, press Ctrl-Alt-Del and open Task Manager.

    Look at the processes tab and if the process explorer.exe is not running, start it as follows:

    In Task Manager, click file, new task, and in the Open box, enter:


    Click OK and see if get you your office.  If you get an error, we need to know what it says.

    If explorer.exe is already running in the processes tab, it is likely that the object of the affection and will need to be replaced (which is not difficult).

    If you notice that the explorer.exe process is already running in the Task Manager, highlight the explorer.exe process, and then click end process to stop and start a new explorer.exe process as described above.

    If things look right now, your system is still not fixed, but it should be enough usable so now you can fix it.

    I would start with these scans:

    Perform scans for malware first, then these scans by operating clean, difficulty of problems:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

  • Some of the taskbar icons are blank sheets

    Some programs such as Internet Explorer, MS Outlook 2007 and iTunes are on the taskbar as blank sheets. I tried to place shortcuts on the desktop and go into properties and change icon. It has worked for other programs but the button change icon in these programs are blackened. Tried to enter the path to the programs without success.

    Is there anyway to make the icons for the programs show?

    Thank you!

    I have this problem, had to do a hard reset because of the loss of output video/media center crash on restart my Firefox Firstclass & icons are now leaves white, very annoying. Delete iconcache.db fix does not work. I was able to restore the icon to exe files, but the icons pinned Taskbar & Start menu, items do not update.
    My dose is as follows:

    Step 1:
    click Start > right click on the program in the start menu > properties > Shortcut tab > change icon > Browse (go to exe for this program) > select exe file > open > choose appropriate options icon. > ok > ok > if you get a message saying that only an administrator can do this, click on continue to apply the change.

    Step 2: start a session application & while it is running to right click on the taskbar icon > detach this program > new right click (watch now icon because it represents the application running, not the shortcut) > pin this program

    I'm not a fan of the new taskbar of the mac either style, it open & navigate several sessions of programs is tedious, especially when the previews seem to almost identical & if different programs use the same icon he adds to the confusion. Y at - it an option of the 'Classic' taskbar somewhere like the classic view for Control Panel, that they used to offer?
