If you uninstall firefox and reinstall it, it will be just as you left it. That means you have to do some serious uninstalling. Firefox is pretty hard to uninstall. I had to uninstall firefox before. You have to do a search on your hard drive for "moz" and delete everything that has anything to do with mozilla. Then go to start-run- and type regedit.
Then delete hkey_current user-software-mozilla
delete hkey_local machine-software mozilla
delete hkey_local machine-software MozillaPlugins
delete hkey_local machine-software mozilla.org
Then restart and then install firefox
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"
"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
