Do you have Update Notifier extension installed and configured properly ? SeLinux has nothing to do with it.

It's a must have. I've been using it for years to keep up to date Firefox on all systems under my supervision. I modify the auto-check feature to 6 hours and also have automatic search and install at startup.

I don't find it flaky at 175 open tabs running 24/7 but it depends of what flakyness means to you I guess :) Did you try removing the theme and adding it again ? I guess you should/could remove it's folder too. I f you install MrTech Toolkit extension you'll have more options which help in quickly finding an extension's folder.

i might do that , but i found a new problem with it,, i now cant click on themes from the mozilla theme site an download them like before, must be something stopping it, but what though..ok this is a new problwem i just found it will not now allow me to down any firefox theme by right clicking on the " Add Theme To Firefox " button by right clicking on the link an Saving Link As, but i can download Thunderbird themes fine,

As I see it, the only potential culprit might be a subscription in Adblock Plus. I have also an issue with Firefox: vBulletin menus don't work, here or somewhere else. I suspect being a Java related issue but I don't know how to investigate this any further. Also, I've disabled every potential blocking extension (NoScript, Adblock Plus...) and got the same results, therefore I don't think those four extensions are really to blame.
