    Another tip. If Firefox launch becomes slower over time you can defrag it's profile databases.

    See: SpeedyFox - Boost Firefox, Skype, Chrome, Thunderbird in a Single Click!

    I run this every few days. Or if you have Ccleaner installed the "Compact Databases" option does the same thing.

    Just a note to say that crashreporter.exe is reinstated after applying a Firefox update. You can just check for it and delete it again.
    Yeah that's why i would prefer a change in about:config instead, so i dont have to go back and delete files from folders again.

    I use wise cleaner to completely clean FF every now and then, like once in a week or so.

    I have used 64 Bit Firefox for a few years without any issues.
    So have I, but I have some kind of issue now. . . messed up profile, maybe ?

    Screen grab from CCleaner. . . .

    Jesus, that's a lot of extensions/addons. Actually, it seems like you have double the amount of each system extension as everone else, perhaps try reinstalling FF?

    Maybe it looks like two user accounts? How many users are logged in?

    Or maybe two FF Profiles. Run the profile manager to check.

    Ccleaner Pro has the option to clean all users locations.

    I installed your Luna Theme but couldn't find a way to modify the buttons. That doesn't mean that it cannot be done but the theme seems to use an image overlay.
    There was an update some time ago that broke the luna XP theme, it used to work flawlessly. The theme hasn't been updated for almost a year, so i guess the only way to fix it is to get in touch with the responsible developer?

    Well the theme is very basic. If you look here:

    Then make a copy of the file and rename it with the .jpg extension you can see that it just overlays an image.

    It doesn't make any other modifications so I wouldn't expect the developer to update it.

    Maybe you could find another similar theme?

    How about this one?
