I'm sorry for not replying, but for some reason I couldn't access this site... I think it has something to do with ZoneAlarm. Anyhoo,
Are you sure you deleted the correct keys as this usually solves that problem. I've never known it not to.
Yep, I deleted exactly the ones you said to delete. But it still didn't work, I even went back and did it again, but still no luck.
@Chimowowo: Thanks, I did that, and it worked.
Though I haven't transfered all the files back yet... as 23 Gigs will probably take a hefty amount of time to copy :)
I did, however have one small problem, I cannot set a custom desktop background, I could only use the default solid 'fill.' do you know why this could be?
This one's totally random, but would anyone know where firefox stores user info? All my settings are lost (but that's to be expected, sinced I just wiped out my user acct ;)) and I'd like to get them back, without having to set them all over again, it could take awhile.
Thanks for all your help guys, I appreciate it more than you know.
