Anyone know the intricacies of FireFox? For some bizarro reason, my computer believes that I am running FireFox and will not let me open up FireFox. It keeps telling me to delete the version that is running, and then restart if the delete doesn't work. I've tried to find the Firefox process it thinks is running, and it is invisible. It is NOT running anywhere on this machine that I can find. I've even gone as far as reinstalling Firefox to try and get it to run, but it won't. I'm really upset because my profile is just perfect the way it was, and I HATE Internet Explorer with such a passion, I can't even begin to count the ways I hate it.
I've tried to find information on the mozilla.com site but there just isn't anything that pertains to my bizarro problem. I'm thinking of uninstalling Firefox completely and reinstalling a virgin copy, but I want to save my profile and it will write over it.
What do I do? Why are simple things so fricking frustrating? They don't need to be. Why can't a computer just work? I'm so pissed off. I just want this to work. I love Firefox. I'm feeling sad and abandoned. And jittery. But that might be the two giant cups of coffee I drank this morning in a meeting. You think?
Update: I fixed it. It took close to 5 hours, but I did it. Now, let's go over why it took so long. Um, could it be because the information on the mozilla.com web site was WRONG WRONG WRONG? Well, yes it could. And it was. I spent hours going from the support site to all the documents they posted (all wrong) to the mozilla newsgroups, and nothing worked. Finally, I kludged something that I would not recommend unless, like me, you're near hysterics and want to bash the computer in it's ugly little monitor. But, it eventually worked! YAHOO. This was, by far, the most non-intuitive fix I've ever come up with. It took so long because it made so little sense, but who cares, it works! I'm not loving mozilla right now, though. Not at all.
