    No, I'm serious. I'm setting up Mozz 1.7.3 on my Dell laptop, and I've
    got two things going on.
    - All bookmarks are doubled - even ones that I enter manually in the
    Manager appear duplicated in the menu.
    - The Extension Manager which gives a list of other options is also
    duplicating the menus.

    And of course, it hung as I was trying to reset my profile, and now I
    can't even get it started. Dang.

    I suspect it was one of the extensions that I installed, but I'm not
    sure which one. I know that on my work machine Tabbed Browswer Prefs
    made it act a bit whacky so I uninstalled it. I suspect that this might
    be the case. Either that or I accidentally installed an extension meant
    for FF or TB instead.

    Anyway, I'm looking for ideas before I uninstall and delete everything.

    I got items doubled in menus in an older version of Tabbrowser
    Extensions (TBE). You might look into that. When all else fails,
    uninstall everything, delete your profiles and start over... :)

    Yup, deleted the extension then reinstalled Mozz. I've now seen that a
    few people have had issues with TBE.

    TBE in particular has a lot of issues, because it is so complex and
    affects so many parts of the browser. But any extension can cause
    problems with the Suite/Firefox/Thunderbird, etc. My recommendation is
    for every time you decide to install an extension, make a complete
    backup of your profile first, and then install the extension. Often if
    problems occur (mainly for extensions that allow you to install them in
    your profile instead of globally in the browser installation), you can
    replace your profile with the backup you made to revert the profile to
    the state it was in before the extension was installed.
