AHHHH firefox died
I was surfing and suddenly Firefox froze. I've been having this problem for awhile, I was using an old version of Firefox and it didn't like websites that used certain types of embedded video so I figured I'd just clicked on something like that.
I closed out and figured this would be a good time to upgrade to the newest version.
Got it all downloaded and installed and nothing, it's a gods forsaken fresh install, all my favorites, all my history all my cookies, all my everybloodygodsforsaken thing I've saved for a couple years is bloody gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's like I got amnesia, I can't remember passwords on half the websites i visit, hell, I can't even remember half the websites I visit :eek:

Probably, payback for using her computer so long.
I guess I need to get mine fixed

I hate to see a man cry.

Check this directory for your info, it should still be there as Firefox doesn't erase anything when you upgrade.

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Also, you will have to enable viewing of hidden files to see this directory.

Tiny, Scout, I thought you were my friends, and here you're snitchin' on me? ;)

Ok, I admit it, I've secretly been studying to become a computer guru, just so I could sabotage Skeeter's Firefox. It's payback for him sneaking linux on my computer without teaching me to use it. :p

There, the truth is out. I feel so free now...

mmmmmm Linux.......

Ahh got it figured out, somehow it created a new profile but I don't don't see a way to change profiles or even see which one I'm on in the tool bars, I had to switch back by editing profiles.ini
weird :confused:

Yep, I've been playing with Linux for a few years, unfortunately once I got things going good on my laptop my hard drive died and Amy doesn't really want me to set it up on her computer :(
We've got it running on our daughters machine but it's only a 350mhz running Kubuntu.
