11:27 am - Fuck Firefox, I'm going back to a reliable browser
I'm giving up on Firefox. It just deleted all my bookmarks, won't let me re-import them, and won't let me bookmark anything.

So, fuck the fox.

I'll see it in hell.

Back to my far more reliable Mozilla Firebird v. 0.7. It never gave me *any* problems.

Good thing I didn't delete it. . . or worse: install over it.

*edit: Apparently, Firefox doesn't come with an uninstaller. . . And the regular "add-remove programs" in Windows doesn't uninstall it. My opinion of Firefox just hit rock bottom.

If I ever said anything good about Firefox, I take it back. All of it.

Re: Google results...

Nope. I have nothing like that installed outside the normal Windows utilities, and I haven't run them in 4 or 5 weeks.

I already tried the solutions presented in the first article (both of which are intuitive solutions, I think), and I'm highly amused by the tone of the last post ("Your fault, you suck, get thee behind me, dude"), but find it remarkably unhelpful, especially since it generally re-hashes the first link.

The key problem, of course, was that neither replacing the file nor re-importing the file worked. Indeed, clicking on the "import" command in the "manage bookmarks" screen did less than nothing. . . it would alternatively take no action, and sometimes (I imagine for the hell of it) freeze my system.

As far as running multiple instances, I also took the regular percaution of restarting and checking my task manager and those fun things.

I'm simply not using Firefox again, at least not until v. 2 comes out, at which point I may consider it. Running Firebird has some problems, obviously, but none like what I ran into with the new version.
