    Hi :D
    Ok, My user profile always poped up when I clicked the Mozilla icon to open the browser. So I could pick the rite profile with my settings(bookmarks). Now it doesn't come up first, the browser just opens, and it has all the wrong bookmarks, with a profile I made a while back. I need the profile window to come back up, so I can choose the correct profile? o_O

    Close FireFox, then, start, run, type firefox.exe -p to get to your profile.

    I don't have Firefox, I have just plain Mozilla. What do I type in for that?

    Thank you Ronjor, That worked.
    Is there any way to make it automaticaly pop up without having to type it in, like it did before, when I click my Mozilla icon?

    Ok, I figured out how to make it come up automaticaly, and am putting it here or anyone else who may want to know.

    I followed ronjor's directions on how to get the Mozilla "profile" window to come up.
    Then, if you want the "profile" window to come up each time so you can be sure it's your personal settings(bookmarks) that opens, just make sure the "Don't ask this at start up" is NOT checked, and it will open each time.
    Thanks :)
