Story Topic:


I can't launch Firefox since the updater installed FF 6.0.1 this morning.

Error message: "Firefox has stopped working"


Recovering programmer

I had just reverted to my backup of my FF folder yesterday. This morning, ran the updater and Firefox started right up. Not sure if something changed or if my computer just hiccuped yesterday.

Thanks again for all you guys do.

Recovering programmer

I was also broken after upgrading with the PortableApps Launcher this morning.

I get an error dialog with the title "XULRunner":

Error: Platform version '6.0' is not compatible with
minVersion >= 6.0.1

That sounds like an extension or plugin error. It likely fixed itself by closing and reopening.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Sounds like he still had some program files from 6.0 hanging around that it tried to load.

Signature automatically removed for being too awesome.

That's doubtful in the App itself as the whole App directory is removed except the plugins and searchplugins folders.
