Firefox refresh - beware

Firefox refresh - beware

I got a message on Firefox saying that Firefox was running slow on my device and I could refresh it to speed it up. Like a fool I did so, and then found that I couldn't open the refreshed browser because my profile was unavailable. I spent more than an hour uninstalling, re-installing, fossicking around in the bowels of my Library to remove the profile from the cache, and eventually got it back and running. However I have lost all of my bookmarks and cookies and I forsee another hour of reinstating them (plus future irritations of course). So don't do it!

I also found it difficult to log back into Foodlovers, it took about six tries before my log in was recognised, each time having to endure that awful Captcha.

If I were you, I would also do an Antivirus scan just in case any malware has been loaded onto your computer.

How frustrating for you. Hope everything is back to normal. and no nasties are lurking. It is so easy to happen, for that one little moment.
