User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705) Build Identifier: Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3 i had installed the extension "autohide 0.9.5 eng" from http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide/autohide.xpi which runs without any problem in firefox. but later i saw that it is possible to get a german version under http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide/autohide_deDE.xpi and i think to de- install "autohide" (eng) first. using de-install was no problem. after the message: "changes will takes effects after starting firefox again". i closed all firefox-windows and start firefox again (its my default-browser) but firefox open no window! no browser is appears but firefox run as a process in task-manager!!!!! Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. install extension "autohide" from http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide/autohide.xpi 2. close all firefox-windows and start firefox again 3. de-install "autohide" 4. start firefox again for taking effects of its changing Actual Results: firefox doesn't start again as browser! no open windows appears! no browser appears! Expected Results: firefox start as process in task-manager ONLY. new installation over the current install takes no effect, same result. complete de-installation of firefox with deleting the firefox-folder takes no effect. i tried complete de-installation of firefox - reboot - clean registry with regedit - new installation BUT crop the same result. after new install without any problem, firefox starts as process only!!!! no browser appears. SO IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO USE FIREFOX FURTHERMORE :-(((
Use Firefox 1.0PR or a latest nightly build to see if you can duplicate this problem please.
Works for me - bug 262993 fixed my solution ----------- was to edit the profiles.ini and set the item IsRelative=0 under step [profile0]. then firefox started and reassign all settings in that profile (e.g IE-fav, bookmarks...) other solution -------------- is to open firefox with the profile-manager (firefox.exe -p) and create a new profile (e.g [profile1]). close all browser windows and start firefox again with profile-manager. select your 1st profile (e.g [profile0]). if know, it is possible to open, than declare that as standard and start again without profile-manager in your first profile. then you dont't need [profile1] anymore. greetings Steev thxx to Joe@krickelkrackel.de
