    "No worky with Windows 7"

    December 17, 2009  |   By guesswhoquestionmark

    Pros

    Nothing - I loved it on my Vista laptop not on my Toshiba Qosmio Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium.

    Cons

    I have tried running it, saving it, rebooting, tried the 3.5, 3.0 , beta versions. It only works in safe mode. I don't know how so many people can get it working on their windows 7. It was the first thing I installed & still have problems.

    Summary

    The icon shows on my desktop but when I click it gives me a crash report. Even after restarting FF.

    This doesn't deserve a rating but a minus million.

    I agree with jmhx7, as this sounds like a corrupted installation. Did you do an MD5 checksum? It's really a good idea to do this. MD5 (Message-Digest algorithm 5) is a widely used cryptographic hash function with a 128-bit hash value. MD5 digests have been widely used in the software world to provide some assurance that a transferred file has arrived intact. For example, file servers often provide a pre-computed MD5 checksum for the files, so that a user can compare the checksum of the downloaded file to it. While I don't use Windows 7 I have several friends who do, all Firefox 3.5.6 users, and none with any problems whatsoever.

    You got a bad download is all. Completely uninstall then download a fresh setup file and re-run it to install fresh.
