So, I turn on my computer today and immediately click on Mozilla Firefox (as I do everyday) to do my morning browsing on the net before getting a shower.
Normally, the W is my homepage. However, today nothing loaded and my Firefox loading info bar thing (at the bottom of the window) says "Locating home.mozilla.org" or something similar. Once in a while Firefox resets itself and I lose my bookmarks. Boo-hoo, I can live with it because I don't have to worry about IE 5 and spyware, etc. So I wait...and nothing loads. And I wait some more, and Windows tells me that Mozilla ain't workin' and I gotta quit it. I tried IE 5 and it works. I ran virus scans and spyware scans and still no dice. And then I uninstalled Mozilla and reinstalled it. Still won't work.
Success! (after lots of Googling (support.mozilla.com)) The key passage was this: I had a bit of a hiccup when I could only find cookies.sqlite-journal at first (and renamed it .temp), but that is a different file.
