I purchased FF about a month ago and have been completely pleased with it until I bought a new PC with WINXP Pro, SP# installed and installed Firefox 2.1.0 and FF. Immediately when trying to bring up Firefox, a DOS window would appear and the load of Firefox would fail.
Since I had selected Firefox as the default browser, I could not use URL links in email to access work related pages. Hmmm... what is going on here. I called up MSconfig and unchecked the items in the startup tab. Eureka! Firefox worked. I added the items in startup back, one at a time and eventually found that only ForceField caused a problem.
I am now the proud owner of a program I cannot use. Tried the same checks on a box with the SP3, Firefox 3, and FF, same results. I know that at this time Firefox 3 is not supported but tried anyway. Are there any plans to fix FF so it works with SP3 and Firefox 3?
Thought I'd leave this work-around (uncheck from msconfig instead of uninstalling the program) to save some other poor guy the grunt work of finding the problem. Any ideas from readers or from ZA? I am a loyal user of ZA product (last 12 years or so). so am sure they will eventually find a fix.
