Firefox Preferences


Recommended Posts

When I make changes to my preferences in Firefox 1.0 I get an error message that it can not save the preferences file and changes will be lost. Even bookmarks are lost and I am not able to install extensions. This happens whether I run as root or ordinary user.


It sounds like a configuration issue butI can't seem to find the problem. The configuration file $HOME/.mozilla/prefs.js does exist and I do have write priveleges. In fact, I can edit the file manually and the changes take effect.


I have tried uninstalling & re-installing with 3 different builds from 2 different sourses but no luck. I originally had mozilla 1.7 installed and have since removed it.


Any suggestions? Thanks
