Ok. Here's the deal.

I was using firefox months ago and all of a sudden it would only connect to some damned coral reef site-no matter what I tried to get to it comes back to this site.


I just tried to download it again and it's still the same farkin CRAP!

Sorry for the foul french but I'm a bit peeved.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Did you check to make sure no one set the homepage to that and only that? like IE, there are 2 lists you can use, white and black lists. if just the site is white, then youll always go to that. Whereas everything else is blacklisted.

Many of Firefox's settings are stored in a Profiles folder separate from the application itself. Have you tried deleting both Ff and the Profiles folder and then reinstalling Ff?

I may be a bit presumptive here, but do you all realize this is a thread from two years ago?

Mozilla Firefox stores all your personal settings, such as bookmarks, passwords and extensions, in a profile. The profile is stored on your hard drive in a profile folder.

Multiple profiles and profile management is an advanced feature, mainly intended for developers. Unless you are an extension developer or an advanced user, you should probably not be trying to use multiple profiles.

Knowing where your profile folder is stored can be useful if, for example, you want to make a backup of your personal data.

* On Windows XP/2000, the path is usually %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\, where xxxxxxxx is a random string of 8 characters. Just browse to C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ and the rest should be obvious.
* On Windows 95/98/Me, the path is usually C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\
* On Linux, the path is usually ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/
* On Mac OS X, the path is usually ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/xxxxxxxx.default/

%AppData% is a shorthand for the Application Data path on Windows 2000/XP. To use it, click Start > Run..., enter %AppData% and press Enter. You will be taken to the "real" folder, which is normally C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data.
