|It sounds like the hard drive is just too full, not really an issue with Firefox. All browsers cache data to the hard drive, when you are clearing the history, make sure you are clearing the cache also.
I'd suggest that you offload some of your files to an external hard drive. It's best to keep 20% of your hard drive free; going much less than that can cause the system to slow and Windows complain.
A useful tool for clearing out unnecessary temporary files is ccleaner it can often clear out quite a bit of space.
If you need further help it would be useful to know what size drive you have, and how full it is.
"Microsoft programs are generally bug-free. If you visit the Microsoft hotline, you'll literally have to wait weeks if not months until someone calls in with a bug in one of our programs. 99.99% of calls turn out to be user mistakes. I know not a single less irrelevant reason for an update than bugfixes. The reasons for updates are to present more new features."
