So as of today Google chrome has started to come up with an error that states preferences cannot be saved or something like that. So i have been trying to fix my broken firefox from long ago. I cannot get Firefox to load any websites and I am looking for a fix to either. Firefox hangs and wont load pages, google chrome wont save my settings and takes about 30 seconds to load a page. I am running Windows 7
If you can get Firefox to load, you might want to reset Firefox. It worked for me...
Sometimes the loaded Extensions are the cause of the problem.
To reset: In Firefox upper left click on the down arrow. From there select "Help",then "Troubleshooting Info.",From there select "Reset Firefox" by upper right corner.
Firefox will restart and keep your bookmarks and most settings. From there you can choose your search engine by Firefox down arrow again. Then choose Option & Options. In general tab you can choose your search engine.
