RE: [NTO] Re: Firefox help ... again
- Ok, guys.
To beat a dead horse...
I tried to install this version from Brian.
It created a double instance of Firefox, so I just worked within the main or
Now, however, after rebooting from a virus update, I cannot load either
instance. It says that one is in the middle of installation, please
Can anyone tell me what files to save so I don't lose my settings, my
currently open tabs (very important!) and if necessary (I don't think so) my
favorites? (Are those IE driven?) IOW, is there a profile I should save?
Those currently open tabs I don't want to lose.
Then, I'll try uninstalling everything and reinstalling just Brian's file.
This thing is totally a resource hog and I want to get this fixed up. I
procrastinate, but now that I can't get into it at all? I'm (Arrrghhh)

Weird. I can get into it by hitting the link from email. Here's the direct

And here's a mirror on my site:
Lemme know if you have any problems with the site(s). Hopefully the mirror

The Firefox release notes have some good information:
The profile folder is located on these versions of Windows, by default
(It can be specified at another location):
Windows 2000, XP Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application
Windows NT WINNT\Profiles\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 98, ME Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
There is a profiles.ini, and pluginreg.dat and the directory with a
"salted" name for each user in the Firefox directory as listed above.
When you re-install Firefox, just copy the profile folder to the desired
location, and you should be good to go.
