If Nothing Of the above works ... then there is 1 more option for you ...

1) Backup yur browser data ... [Bookmarks, Addons(if required), etc]
2) Uninstall Firefox Complete
3) Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\"User"\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla
and delete the Directory named "Firefox"
4) Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\"User"\Application Data
and delete the Directory named "Mozilla"

Now you have completely removed the appln.

5) Download a latest ver. of Firefox from its homepage
6) Install it
7) Import all your Bookmarks (and Addons)

download a portable version from the PortableAppswebbsite. if that works, then you know the problem is with your install. then just backup your profile (use MozBackup or similar), uninstall firefox with Revo Uninstaller, and reinstall.

ctrl+shift+delete will let you delete your private data such as history cookies and cache
as for the video download just download internet download manager from the apps forum..
