Gupta: Everyone in our group got altitude sickness

    Living in Flagstaff AZ at an altitude of 7000 feet I experienced altitude sickness 3 years a go when I relocated here. Being a diabetic I felt awful. My sugars were all over the place, I was lightheaded and nauseated, it took me almost 2 months to stabilize.
    I later learned that oxygen levels for people who live here are around 96% and that is why so many people here try to walk or bike more then taking the car.

    I have had Firefox, IE, and Google chrome downloaded onto my computer for a while now with no problem. Recently I downloaded YIM and now Firefox doesn't start up. If I restart my computer a few times, and try to open it a few dozen times each time I restart, it will eventually pop up. How do I fix it? Chrome and IE still work fine but I prefer Firefox..
