    this has never happened before. I was using firefox and all of a sudden nothing on firefox was working so I closed the browser and opened it back up. This little popup came up telling me to choose a user. There was djcripsen and default. I chose djcripsen and it said it was already in use. So then I chose default and now my browser is back to default settings and all my bookmarks are different. how do I get back to that screen to change the user?

    fixed....it was a firefox profile problem. I dont know why but sometimes it has me choose a profile. I just went to start then run and typed in "firefox.exe -profilemanager" and chose the correct profile.

    Yea... i've had that problem where it'll freak out and not close the profile correctly. What i've had to do it go into Task Manager and end the firefox.exe process, then reopen Firefox... and its been ok.

    Only happens to me on rare occasions... and i dont think its happened to me in the 1.5+ releases.
