To cut a long story short, after cleaning up mess from upgrade of Fx 1.0.5 to 1.0.6 I am no left with no Fx at all ;) After removing all vestiges of Fx 1.0.4 download, Ive attempted to do fresh download of Fx 1.0.6. Installation stops with message that there has been an uncompressing error at C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\Temp\7ZS77.tmp\xpcom.xpi:3 . After searching through forums and Mozillazine, I came across a fix @ [URL=forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=294709] which stated to clear temp/cache and then proceed to do fresh install. I've done all I can think to clear cache,directory, and temp folders, yet keep receiving same error message. Any ideas? I'm thinking of just downloading the Deer Park beta instead. Using IE just bites! :tazz: . Thankyou.

I dont know of a fix, but Deer Park rocks. I have been using it (1 and now 2) for over a month now with absolutely no problems. :tazz:

Sadly, the Deer Park download is displaying the same error :tazz: However, through more research I've found that profiles are stored in Application Data, so I'll try to delete that next.
