mozilla was working just fine, then, one day, desided it didn't like me. it refuses to remember log in information for websites, and it doesn't remember the sites i've been to so i can'tuse the drop down list when i type in web page urls. also, mozilla mail refuses to retrieve my messages from a pop account that worked just fine before. i didn't change any settings, and i looked through them just to be sure, and everything is as it should be. i have no idea why it is doing this to me, any ideas/

actually, it does sound a little vague...
here's what i can think of:
did you do any of the following commands recently:

rm -rf .mozilla (while in your home directory)
rm -rf .* (while i your home directory)
rm -rf /home/exigent/.mozilla
rm -rf /home/exigent/.*

the settings on mozilla are kept in the config files found in the .mozilla directory.

or did you change a to another user account? the .mozilla directory is specific to each user.
