I think I have sorted the problem. If I vaguely remember when I had Firefox 4.0 it was a little slow it-self so it may not be related to Malware. What I suggest is to remove Firefox 4.0 with Revo Uninstaller which can be found here and do the Advanced removal which is the last option as this will remove it completely and then install Firefox 5.0 which can be found here and then apply the Firefox tweak which can be found here
Please reply back if this has / has not cured your problem

I do apologize for the use of abbreviations. But you're right!
If you could please, after a few more days, post back with an update on if you've come across any issues with using Firefox 5.0 to it's fullest potential. I'd really appreciate it. I'm really concerned about my add-ons being compatible.

So it is a good idea to update Firefox soon after the update comes out.

I use Firefox 3.6.18 and everything works fine, I never bothered with 4 for the reason posed in my last question and now we have 5.
If I update to 4 or 5 or whatever Mozilla pops up with tomorrow, what happens to the compatibility of all the hundreds of independent vital programs we use when these new browser versions are installed ?
Do we get a super- duper Firefox and nothing else works ?

I understand that it can be annoying when updates are released all the time but updates at times are vital for a number of things such as bugs. Firefox 4 to me had serious bugs to which is why I waited for 5.0 to come out. In terms of compatability Firefox keeps all compatability intact as far as i'm aware. But things can go wrong in the computer world which is why I advise people to do backups regular then you can always revert back.
I have tested Firefox 5.0 on a number of things such as addons etc.... and everything works how it should. I don't know if 3.6.18 had any issues but if it works for you just keep it how you have had it

It can be a pain with the new versions coming out frequently with the different Add-ons and Extensions, however, I personally am happy to update for the most stable version, and then worry more about the "extras" later on.
