what made you try this? – kajaco Jan 26 '10 at 13:39
When I installed Firefox, I went on to install all my extensions that I use, so I just decide to uninstall them one by one, and it worked when I uninstalled YSlow – Roland Jan 27 '10 at 11:04
YSlow had a few upgrades recently and one of those was buggy. Upgrade past the affected release. – Broam Jan 28 '10 at 18:42
