Downloading anything in PFox results in Error/ Shut Down

So here's the thing,
Recently, using PortableFirefox to browse and save anything to my hard drive results in an error, and the program shuts down.

eg: I right click a pic on the web and hit save as and then i say where, then it errors and shuts down. I had to use another browser to d/l the PFox update.

It only started doing this last night, so I upgraded to 1.5.02 and it's still not working. I've tried a couple different computers, but to no avail.

I use a portable Firelite harddrive and my school's computers (laptop recently fried, so all my computing is done in the library). I don't think it's the hard drive's fault. I copied the PortableFirefox folder onto the computer's drive, and it still errored. And I don't want to erase my (40 gigs of) files, to see if it fixes it.

Any help would be appreciated. This isn't a dire problem, but it makes surfing a hell of a lot more annoying. Thanks.

Oh, just found another

Oh, just found another bug.

When I try to select "Privacy" in the options screen, it errors and shuts down as well.

Corrupt profile or drive

Most likely, your profile is corrupted. Both of the mentioned functions work fine in a base copy. Did you pull your drive before PFF had fully closed or have a computer crash at some point? Rebuilding your profile would be the best option.

Though, it could be an issue with your drive. Try a base copy of PFF from the drive and from your desktop to see if you have the same issues before playing with your profile.

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