Recommended Posts

since today my ff isn't working like it shud anymore.

it wont start with a shortcut (well actually it is running if u look @the task manager but u dont see it)

then after killing the one opened with the shortcut , it does work when u run it prom the install folder.

next problem.

when attempting to dload anything (dont matter wot even if its just a pic)

the built in dload manager (u know that window that appears showing the progress) doesn't appear and ff crashes.

i tryed a reinstall but still the same problem.

and i dont wanna reformat :(

if it matters its the latest version.

anyone a idea wots the prob ,how to fix ?

thnx in advance , DLSS

C:Documents And Settings<username>application dataMozila

also nuke:

C:documents and settingsAll Usersapplication datamozila (i may have dreamed this one up from no where, but i've found extensions in there after a firefox removal once)... but you'll loose your bookmarks unless you grab a copy of "bookmarks.html" from your profile.

Remove all that crap, unistall firefox, maybe reboot, and reinstall from a fresh download..

A easier way to delete\Manage your firefox profiles is to run:

1. Open run dialog (Windows key + r)

2. firefox.exe -p

3. Select a Profile and Press Delete Profile

4. Either Create a new profile or Exit

Hope this Helps,

I disagree. Just because the original poster may not still be suffering from the problem, anyone searching for solutions to Firefox problems now has a bit more information. I also didn't know about the -p flag for dealing with profiles in Firefox. Will have to check if it still works.

It still works. I do see where he was coming from, thread was old and dead, but I agree with answering this one, because it was a solution that was not given and is a valid response vs what we normally see like "Thanks, that helped" to a 5 year old thread that doesn't need bs comments. +1 to ~*L33T_NiNj4*~ for anwering it too..
