mozilla profile error

Postby TheElectron707 » Tue Jun 17, 2003 9:49 pm

I am using mozila 1.2 on Redhat_9. For some time i am having problem when i run mozilla it asks me which profile i want to use, if i select DEFAULT , as this is the one i always use, it says the the DEFAULT profile is already in use. where is no other instance of mozilla is running. if i check the directory listings of mozilla DEFAULT profile directory then it shows me a blinking LOCK file (basically a linked file):
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jun 17 06:30 lock ->

if i do a restart then some times the problem is automatically solved and sometimes its still there.
i am unable to understand the problem.

You found the solution to the problem yourself. Just delete the lock file and try starting mozilla.
