User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021029 Phoenix/0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021029 Phoenix/0.4 I get the following Configuration Error Dialog Box when I first open Phoenix: "Configuration Warning: An error occurred reading the startup configuration file. Please contact youradministrator. Syntax Error: illegal character" This problem occurred when my computer suddenly shut off and restarted. Once I open Phoenix and open another window the dialog box does not reappear, how can I fix this? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. My computer suddenly shut off and windows ran a scandisk upon restart 2. When I open PHoenix for the 1st time after starting windows 3. I lose all my settings in Preferences.
Start Phoenix by "phoenix.exe -ProfileManager" to make a new profile. Be sure to backup bookmarks and so on.
Could you please make a clean reinstall, by deleting both your phoenix program directory and your phoenix profile directory and see if the problem still occurs. This looks like a file corruption issue to me. If Phoenix works fine after the reinstall, please close this bug and mark it WORKSFORME.
