Thought I’d play this morning and booted to Vista HP.

I noticed that FireFox took a long time to connect .... 10 > 15 seconds.
IE7 was instantaneous.
So I tried to Remove n Re-install FireFox .... several times.

Each time I Removed and Re-installed FF ..
It came back the way I had it setup last ... with the Bookmarks, TSG and Popup Addons installed.

I think the speed fix was to remove the Vista Zone Alarm that I added yesterday …
But my question is … Why can’t I remove a program and do a clean Re-install ???

Uninstalling Firefox leaves your profile behind for future installations. For a clean installation, remove the profiles, too.

C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

I looked and couldn't find that path.
Even did a search... and deleted some FireFox Mozilla stuff.
Still came back.

The path should read C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Never thought to Unhide .. I see it now .. Many Thanks.
Maybe Later ... I'll put Zone alarm back in and see if it's the cause for the slowdown.

I can only take Vista in Small doses.
