I built a computer from scratch.
Things are working fine on it, except for Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8

This morning, it kept opening the add-on description pages that pop up when you update them.
I don't know why it's doing that. I updated the add-ons yesterday afternoon, and it wasn't doing this everytime I logged on.

Other things it's forgetting.

- it won't use the theme I selected
- it forgets I cleared the download status bar
- it forgets I told NoScript to allow certain Javascript (like Flash player for YouTube, for example.)
- it asks if I want ff to be the default browser, even though i unchecked "always check if ff is the default browser" and clicked yes. . a long time ago

Hmm that's rather strange indeed.

Have you tried re-installing it?

When you have made changed to all of these settings etc have you shut the computer down properly? Or have you held in the power button or taken the power out? That could do it although technically shouldn't!
