I just Reset Firefox to its default state. Is there any way I can UNDO this...as I think it is causing problems.

Well...I was getting a lot of those message about "page not loading"...so I thought I would try resetting Firefox to its default state.

But I'm now having other issues that were not occurring before...so I'm wondering if I could go back to BEFORE I reset it...it might clear up.

Two examples:

One - Before when I would "Sign Out" of Hotmail...it would go back to MSN.COM.

But now...it goes back to NOTHING...just a blank page...like it got stuck on the way.

Here is what is in the address window ---> http://www.msn.com/?ocid=hmlogout

TWO - In Facebook...all of a sudden I can't play Scrabble anymore. The board comes up but it won't give me any of the games I was already playing.

When I reset it...a folder was put on my desktop called "Old Firefox Data".

Is there anything I can do to take it back to how it was BEFORE I reset it...hoping it might fix these problems?

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

If clearing cookies doesn't work then it is possible that the cookies.sqlite file that stores the cookies is corrupted.

Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete other present cookie files like cookies.sqlite-journal in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.
