    Default Problem with Firefox

    This may seem like a really mundane problem, but it's buggine the hell outta me. My firefox refuses to open in full screen. It always open in 'half-screen' mode and the icons at the top(back, etc.) are always at the default setting(small, no text). Also after I open a few ST threads I get logged out.

    Well, uh... I'm sure that there is a really simple solution to this, but I can't figgure out exactly which files of the user's preferences you would need to keep, and which ones you would have to delete. =P

    Try a normal reinstall of the program first.

    Sooo... unless you have a lot of bookmarks and extentions that you want to keep (let me know if you do, and I can tell you which subdirectories to back up, don't want to type them all unless I need to), I would say the the easiest way that I know of (if the standard uninstall/reinstall doesn't work) is to completely uninstall firefox.

    To do this, run the firefox uninstall from the Start Menu. After you have done that, got to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and make sure that the directory is completely gone. Next you will want to go to C:\Documents and Settings\<your login name>\Application Data\Mozilla\ and from there delete the firefox directory, profiles.ini, and the plugins.reg files (that should be it, but I only have firefox and thunderbird installed, so there could be more if you have... whatever there new program is called installed).

    That should have completely removed Firefox from your system. No more settings, plugins, extentions, themes, or bookmarks (I hope). Now just startup the 1.5 installer and do a brand new full install of the program.

    That sounds like you don't have your browser set to accept the cookies, sense that is how ST keeps track of your user account. Check to make sure your cookies are on in the settings under privacy-cookies (or that cookies are off, but stoptazmo.com is in your exceptions list, like I do). Could be some java script your blocking as well, but I don't think that ST uses much java script if any.

    since this is a problem with firefox thread, i will post my problem here.

    I just updated to the newest firefox browser and i noticed that my browser now tend to go to the default check connection setting page every time i had a download running while browsing. I am on dialup but with the previous version the page will load in a while not go to the default check connection page.

    is there anything i can do to tweak it back or do i have to uninstall as well.
    Ha ha, when god create human, he never envision u!!!

    Oh... hell. Yeah... in theory you should be able to. But, it may be tricky. I'm not exactly sure what you need to change, but I have a good idea. You might want to google along the lines of what I suggest and you may get much better instructions/advice than I am about to give.

    What I would do, is go to the URL bar and type in 'about:config'. Now, be very carefull in here. You can really mess up firefox in here.

    Go to the filter bar and type in 'timeout'.

    Write down all the values on a piece of paper that comes up for the filter search.

    Start changing these values to higher numbers, restart firefox, and try to open the pages again. One of them should solve your porblem (I think...). If not, change them all back to the values that you wrote down.

    This is really all that I can think of... good luck.
