A week or so ago, I posted a problem related to FFox not starting with my last session, when it's what I have saved in my preferences - - Well Thanks to cor-el (who is listed with an incredible 73,525 posts!) I checked http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved & found I had 2! prefs.js files - naturally (thanks to MacroSloth) in 2 different locations, so as soon as I deleted the older 1 & restarted FFox, it immediately came back with my latest session, just the way I wanted

I suggest if anybody has a similar problem with FFox not starting with their latest session (when it's what you have set), then you might find the perfect solution is to check whether you have 2 prefs.js files & to delete the older

Anyway, I wanted to post my gratitude To Cor-El for the lead which led to the solution, but the mozilla support site kept telling me, after I jumped thru the hoops they set up, how I couldn't post the reply (namely these thanks to cor-el) I wanted, so I've had to resort to this work around, by posting this question : why couldn't I post my thanks on the thread itself?

My software allows a user to open Attachments. I get a box with the title "Opening message1.txt" which also has an "Open with" radio button. I then click the OK button and my attachment is displayed. However, I also get a second box with the title "Downloads." How do change the Firefox Options to not get the Downloads box?

Sometimes when I close Firefox and try to open it in few moments it shows me message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." However, I haven't opened any additional Firefox related programs, and previous Firefox is closed. First I though it is because of my computer, but then I discovered that other people have the same problem as well

I recently upgraded to Firefox 3.6 from 3.0 and noticed that the dropdown menu of the location bar behaves differently. Previously bookmarks in this list showed the star marker and had a different background color (the later was by a modification in the usercss). In Firefox 3.6 both of them are only visible while typing a new URL and suggestions are shown. If I just open the dropdown menu all entries look the same. Can the old behaviour be restored?
