I was happily browsing away yesterday visiting my usual
porn anarchist highbrow web sites, when my Firefox browser decided it had had enough and needed a rest.
I got a little message on the screen saying that Firefox had closed to prevent damage to my computer.
Being the philosophical type, I just fired it up again.
I got a little message on the screen telling me that Firefox failed to load and would I like to inform the honchos so that they can broaden their minds a bit. I said yes, and shut it down.
I fired up Firefox again, and once more it failed to load. This was getting irritating at this stage. I tried several times, and each time it fucked up on me.
I tried loading it in Safe Mode, whatever the hell that is, and it still failed. By now, it was really getting on my tits.
I decided to fire up that abominable heap of shite called Internet Explorer and get a new version of Firefox.
I loaded that and everything went well, until I tried to fire up Firefox.
The fucking thing failed again.
This was really pissing me off at this stage, so I uninstalled Firefox, and reinstalled it. It still failed. Fuck!
I decided to uninstall it again, only this time, I told it to remove all traces of itself. Being a smart sort of chap though, I backed up my bookmarks and my profile before doing that. I reinstalled it, and it worked perfectly.
Great. At last I am getting somewhere. All I had to do then was restore my bookmarks and my profile and everything would be hunky dory.
I did my bookmarks first and had a look at them.
Bollox!! I had backed up the wrong version, even though the date on it was yesterday’s date. I could live with that though.
I went to restore my profile, only to find that fucking Firefox had deleted my old one and the backup. Damn, blast, bother, knickers and spit!
My profile contained quite a few things. It had all my little plug ins, my settings and gizmos like that, but it also contained all my stored passwords.
Now I can’t access a load of my sites.
I have written to Chang Li Sung in China and Vladimir Gradsky in Russia, both of whom I know have been ripping off my passwords for months, but I haven’t heard back from them yet.
I’m screwed now.
I wonder if Nympho Nancy will miss my daily visit?
