(In reply to comment #0) > it just reinstalls next time i open internet explorer Looks to me the Reporter still uses Internet Explorer for browsing, and everybody knows that it is currently not safe to use it due to the many holes in it which can be abused by malicius spyware and trojan coders. Suggest that someone closes this one since this bug is more User/Internet Explorer related than a (serious) problem with FF.
Jay, this report needs more specific information for it to become useful. Please reopen if you can provide such details, and if you feel there is an issue with Firefox itself.
