1. I updated yeasterday and didn't get this error.

This is a minor update, I think. You have to shutdown FF, but I didn't have to reboot the system. I guess I'd reboot again and see if this clears...make sure you close all programs before doing that.

No thank you for me, I'm afraid.

2. That's not enough information. How many times did you have to reboot?

5. So you're running Windows.

 



Seriously though, you might want to do a system restore to a prior checkpoint (like a few days ago). It won't damage your personal files or settings. It will just go back in time for the registry and related system files. Make sure the system is working again and then do a full reinstall of Firefox. It sounds like something fucked up in the install process.

4. Change error option

Right click MyComputer (XP) select properities->advance tab->settings in startup and recovery and uncheck automatic restart on system error.

This should stop the rebooting and let you get and see error messages. With these we can better help you.

7. Try this

1. Download the install file for Firefox 10.
2. Uninstall Firefox 10
3. Reboot
4. Use the file from step #1 to reinstall Firefox

If the problem continues then it's probably not a Firefox update that's failing.
