The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

a. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
b. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
c. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
d. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
