  1. I downloaded the just released Microsoft patch for WMF and now I cannot even open Firefox. Has anyone else downloaded the official Microsoft patch? If so and you're running with Firefox, how's it going? Or not. Thanks!!
     
  2. no problems so far using firefox and the patch

    same here... no probs.. all security apps are able to update, all browsers, email clients working.... still checking on published/picture programs at the moment, but so far all good.

    Maybe it's because gdi32.dll changes and something in your security doesn't like that and blocks it silently thereby making it impossible for Firefox to start. It can happen with Outpost's Component Control but that gives you a warningscreen that it's changed giving you the option to "OK" it.

    open Fx in safe mode (Firefox safe mode not windows). Close then try open normally.

    Same setup as Joliet Jake, and no probs here either.

    I've heard elsewhere that where you're most likely to run into probs with this patch is with Win Explorer thumbnails, but I don't use those so couldn't say.
