Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I did something Mozilla-Firefox didn't like.

What did I do? I cleared the contents of my temporary internet and temporary files.

What did it do? Mozilla put up this message upon starting it (reinstalling did not correct whatever I did)

"Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features."

The browser seems to not be able to load certain pages completely, refresh, stop, back/forward buttons don't work....probably a lot of other browser options don't work either. here's the kicker, internet-explorer is working just fine. Never thought I'd see the day that IE was working better than M-Firefox.

    Copy and paste that error message into a search engine, brings up tons of forum boards with ways to fix it. Have you tried those?

    Wait, you uninstalled the entire thing and it's still doing that? There were probably files left over. If you're on a Windows, go to Program Files/Mozilla and delete the FireFox folder upon uninstalling it. You need to make sure it's 100% uninstalled and that there aren't fragments left over.


    Speaking of FireFox issues, Flash videos won't work in mine. It works in Safari and the Adobe Flash website says "if you can see this image, your Flash is working" and I can see it. But it doesn't work. Tried reinstalling Flash, didn't do anything. What the hell is up with FireFox? My Adobe Flash player is obviously updated and working - it works in Safari - but it won't work in Firefox. I'm on a Macbook.

    Not trying to hijack thread, but since it's a FireFox issue...

    Is your AdBlocker just killing all the flash?

    The error mentions your user profile is screwed up (containing all your bookmarks, history, etc).

    Try making a new one, detailed instructions are here.

    When you uninstall it usually leaves behind your profile. A quick way to get there is to go to Start and click Run then type %appdata% and press OK/Run to open the folder most apps use for that kinda thing.

    Final flight and exoplasm's suggestions fixed whatever the problem was. I think when I reinstalled I forgot to have it remove my old profile, so reinstalling it completely did the trick.
    Thanks for the help.
