Only problems with Firefox since version 44.0. Most of the errors are already addressed in other threads but I got an error saying “can’t load XPCOM”. I have done a check disk from Windows Vista and it did some repairs of broken items on the external hard drive. It didn’t make any difference. Then I followed advice I found online for the regular Firefox and uninstalled everything, after taking back up, of course.
I downloaded the new file of Firefox from Portable apps but it will not install. Most of the time nothing happens and sometimes I get an error message after a while that says that the header is corrupt. I have tried to download the file several times but just can’t get it to work.
I have a regular Firefox in the same PC and it works. I just want to use my portable Firefox as the computer is shared.
I get the same error message “can’t load XPCOM” in Seamonkey that I also use. But not in any other browser.
