    I've done two clean installs 7x64 ultimate and this will still happen: Using firefox 3.5.6 and whenever I try and download anything whatsoever, I get a pale white screen and firefox is unresponsive and crashes. I've got the uac totally off, and I've tried deleteing the .squire file that ff recommends with this type of problem. Ideas?

    Are you using the 32-bit version of Firefox? If so, this could be your problem
    Install the 64-bit version here:
    Download - Mozilla x86-64

    Solved

    Downloading the x64 version seems to have fixed the problem! Thank you SOOOOOO much!

    What is the "Shiretoko" version that I have now?
