I think that I have inadvertently done something that I should not have :-(
Suddenly, when opening Firefox 3 I get the following :
A dialog appears stating 'An error occurred while loading or saving
configuration information for firefox-bin. Some of your configuration
settings may not work properly.'
Selecting Details on the dialog button gives :
'Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/
for information. (Details - 1: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-stuart/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: No such file or directory 2: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-stuart/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: No such file or directory)'
This then keeps repeating.
I then get a dialog asking if I want to make Firefox my default browser. Firefox then opens
and runs ok.
I have the folder /tmp/gconfd-stuart, but there is no lock folder in it.
Can anyone help ? I have googled and tried the gconf site but cannot find anything
