    I installed an extention that wasn't compaitble with 1.0.3, only 1.0.2... and i didn't realize it until after the fact.

    It will open up, but nothing works. all the menus are diabled, and you can't even type in the address bar. its almost like its half loaded.

    Here's what i've done so far, and i'm stumped:

    redownloaded 1.0.3, overwrote.
    same problem.

    removed from add/remove programs
    redoanladed, installed,
    same problem

    removed from add/remove programs
    regedited, deleted all instances of "firefox" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software
    deleted c:\program files\mozilla\firefox\ directory
    deleted C:\Documents and Settings\Brian\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox directory (profile info)
    redownloaded, re-installed
    same problem.

    WTF, over?

    why can't i install it anymore? any ideas where else some corrupt data may be hidden?

    who the hell still stypes command out?

    cmd owns you.

    and really dude, if you think im that stupid, you're retarded :)

    besides, it won't even fully work when your in windows mode. there will be files that are write protected because they are open with another program-- windows.
