Plugin page now home page and will not allow change after trying all setings listed in your excuse for help - need to get back to my settings with my one tab.


Was working along when Firefox just quit with no error message - gone. When restarted a Firefox plugins page came up as main tab and will not allow me to change that. It is too costly and complicated to upgrade due to how it affects everything else - tired of all the expensive upgrades that make other programs and processes not work or work shitty. I am on Firefox 3.6 and it worked until this happened. There is no reason to fix what's already working fine. The problem is caused by this page while my setup was working fine. I just need it returned to where it was before this stupid crash. I tried to send in another note but your excuse for help had me waste even more of time to register and write this - no matter what I'm doing my time is very valuable and this has wasted a lot of it. I want to keep my present configuration, period. Need to know how to get rid og this plugins page once and for all. Been to all the "Help" stuff and many people are having this problem and they too are finding no solutions but to upgrade. Read my lips - upgrading screws up other things and causes problems with other processes and programs, period. My system was working fine before this - there was nothing wrong on my end. Been using 3.6 since it came out and am satisfied with it and have it customized down. Upgrading will cause havoc with my settings also. Productivity lost. Fun gone. Lets fix it so I can get back to what I was doing.
