    I need to delete Firefox ver. 0.8 from my Mac and then reinstall it fresh. Could anyone tell me where the preferences are for this application, so I can completely uninstall and start fresh?

    I believe it is in ~/Library/Phoenix/

    The folder name is left over from the fact that the project's original name was Phoenix, and I guess they decided to leave the preference directory in the same place for convienence.

    How come Firefox is blocked from downloading in Vista? I and technicians cannot get Mozilla Firefox to load into my Inspiron 518 with Vista Deluxe Home Edition. I have over 500 Gb and 4 Gb of memories; and it gets a message that Microsoft will not allow the installation. Help!! Wghat can be done? Is there a Firefox tech out there with a Fix for Vista ?

    You probably should have posted a thread of your own rather than bumping a five-year-old one; that said, it sounds like a privileges issue. Is it a company laptop? Are you installing from an administrator account?
