    Hi, I bumped the following thread with a solution just now, and put "SOLVED" in the title so it would be clear, but the title change didn't carry over so it isn't. So I'm also starting a new thread, sorry. But seems like many peop who still have a Win95 machine around ask this from time to time, here and elsewhere, so... :)

    (The solution was to copy the Mozilla folder located in Windows/ into the Windows/Application Data folder.)

    Thanks for posting and even tho that particular suggestion has been mentioned in numerous threads it never hurts to suggest again. Also....for those that may stumble on this thread....there is another suggestion contained in the Javacool Knowledgebase that has helped others with this problem.

    Troubleshooting: SpywareBlaster didn't detect your Mozilla/Firefox profile

    Hmmmmm... My luck is very bad then because I searched the matter and read threads about it for a couple hours and never saw that tip. Only saw peop being directed to the tip about the size of registry.dat (a file many don't even have), and sometimes even to uninstall and reinstall both programs, then the thread dying out if those weren't the answer. (Even Javacool posted on the thread I linked, only from last July... and didn't mention it.) This should definitely have been added to the exisiting FAQ topic about it by now if it's been mentioned numerous times, since it's probably as -- if not more -- likely to be the actual problem and solution than what's already in there.... Oh well. :)
