Firefox customizations not saving

  1. Hi there,

    Until recently I was using FF fine, but suddenly I am getting the default settings every time I open the browser, even though I try to customize it each time. Any suggestions? Does customizing the browser involve a registry edit? I have recently started running a lot of different anti-spyware programs, one of which blocks changes to the registry without warning and asking for direction first. But I haven't gotten any warnings.

    If not to the registry, then where do configuration changes get saves, and why might that not be saving like it should??


    Edit: Nevermind. Delete this thread please.

    Funnily enough, the answer was in the FF online help FAQ. Close FF, restart in FF Safe Mode, reset whatever needs to be reset (in this case the "localstore.rdf" file), and restart. Easy as 1-2-3. Amazing those FAQ's....
