Hi,

 

Just completed a clean reinstall of Windows 7 and now have a new problem when I try to open Mozilla Firefox.  Error message as follows:  "Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features."

 

My hard disk is not anywhere close to full.  I have no idea how to "exit the application and fix the problem."

 

I am running a Sony Vaio Desktop all-in-one with a 2.50 ghz Intel Core i7, 256KB primary memory cache, 1024 KB secondary memory cache, and 8192 KB tertiary memory cache, 64-bit, running Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 with 2484.67 Gigabytes Usable hard drive capacity and 1435.34 Gigabytes free hard drive space.

 

Thanks in advance for your help and tips!
