Firefox 1.0 - browser

When i start Firefox, almost all of the time, firefox asks me to choose a profile and when i try to use the default one, it tells me it is in use. Basically, it keeps losing the profile and i lose all my favourites etc everytime i start Firefox up.

Has anyone else experienced this..? I have tried the Firefox support pages but haven't found anything yet..!

Right click the Taskbar and see if there is already an instance of FF open. If so shut it down and restart FF.

Right click Taskbar of course means have a look in Task Manager. doh

Grab mozbackup and backup your profile. click here

Uninstall Mozilla completely and reboot.

Try a reinstall

Latest version is now 1.0.1. If I had this problem I think I would try an uninstall followed by reinstall of latest version to see if that effected a cure.
