Mozilla User Profile troubles


Hello,

Every time I start up Mozilla, I get a "Mozilla Profile Manager" window that asks me to select my user profile.

When I used Mozilla for the very first time, it wouldn't let me select "default" profile so I had to create one called "Default User" profile.

Is there any way to get rid of this annoying prompt?

-GoddessPrime

PS I use Red Hat 9

i had the same problem too. did any of u all run mozilla under the root user and then run mozilla as normal user? I fixed the problem by deleting mozilla and reinstalling it. and running mozilla as normal user first!

killall kills processes by name. at ur command prompt type: man killall. use man, short for manual, to find out what any command means, e.g., man rpm, man ls, man killall, etc.

mozilla

Sometimes mozilla ( or any other program) can die out on you.
That is you cannot see it running but it is still there.
If you run:
ps xaw

or better
ps xaw | grep -i mozilla

you can see the stale process...

Issuing the command killall -9 mozilla-bin
the stale process stops and some ram goes free.

9 out of 10 that's the case for mozilla and most apps.
