Firefox won't startup-Error message says "Configuration error"

Q: Firefox won't startup-Error message says "Configuration error"

The rest fo the error message says- "Failed to read configuration file. Please contact system administrator"
I have just R and R'd Firefox and I'm still getting this error message. It won't run now and now I see just how horrible IE is in XP,since I'm forced to use it now....sob
Please Help!!

Preferred Solution: Firefox won't startup-Error message says "Configuration error"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Only an idea!!!!  Not sure but it may be the newer FF may not run well on XP, you could experiment by down loading and older version.
Just checked I may be right check the link below!

I get an error message when I open Itunes. It says "Itunes has detected a problem with audio/video configuration..." and that the audio video may not play correctly.

I have uploaded some cd's to Itunes and I have noticed the sound has skips in it.

Also, my daughter wanted to open some pictures from a disc but the disc wouldn't work. I took the disc to work and opened the pictures fine.

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 running XP. I do not have any other problems with the machine.

This a.m. I was greeted by this System Configuration Utility message popup:

You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

The System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the Utility to run every time Windows starts.

Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system Configuration Utility.

Yesterday I used the system configuration utility to untick a program in the Startup menu. Is that why I am getting this message now?

If I follow the directions and select the Normal Startup option, will all the services that I have painstakingly turned off over time start running on startup again? Or will it just load the one application it changed?

Could I restore the registry from a few days ago instead? And, if I do that, will the tracking cookies I finally got rid of by setting them to be deleted at start-up reappear?

Another question I have is, what is the utility used for, if not to make changes? Is it just to look at? What good is it then?

Thank you in anticipation, that someone will be able to help with my problem as outlined below.

I am using Firefox browser with the AOL dialer, as I recently stopped using the AOL software after changing from AOL dial up to AOL Broadband wireless. I am still using the AOL dialer as I gather, I need this to log on wirelessly with AOL, at least in UK.

When I log onto Firefox, I get a server error message. So I go to Tools > Options >
Connection Settings & then click onto the Direct or Auto connection setting, go back & retry & it allows connection to my homepage, but I have to do this each time I logon to Firefox. IE causes no problems & nor does Opera, but as I use roboform which isn't compatible with Opera I prefer Firefox to IE.

When this first happened I thought Firefox might have been corruupted so removed & reinstalled but same error message? My partners laptop who has no problems logging on is using the same AOL wireless connection although mine is the PC which was connected to wireless/router/modem.

A work around would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Click on OK to terminate or click on cancel to debug" I click on debug and it restarts the computer and seems to go fine the second time. Can someone please tell me what this means and why it's happening.


A:Error message upon startup

The cause can have a dozen reasons.
It could be faulty RAM, but that should show up as unreliability afterwards
It could be a flakey area on the hard drive, causing an incorrect loading of a driver or system file.
It could be a dodgy or damaged driver.


I would opt for the driver issue first, if one is damaged when loading initially it could be the cause. Renew motherboard video and audio drivers.

you can try to always update you verizon stuff manually. but do this and see if the error goes away. have you tried contacting your ISP about this problem?

Sometimes when I start my laptop, I will get an error that says 'Error: could not connect to API'. Does anybody know how I can fix this. Thanks.

A:API ERROR message at startup...

API refers to Application Program Interface. Since this only occurs at startup one cause could be a program that has been uninstalled but the 'startup' for the program is still there but it can't find the API. It could also be something you have installed but need to be connected to a certain server or website to run.

I would start\run type msconfig go to the start up tab and look for something you uninstalled recently.

Hi Folks,
A couple weeks ago I was infested with a ton of malware/spyware, causing all sorts of mayhem. Following the advice, and ALL the steps, of your Hijack This! forum, I was able to successfully clean and restore my system, and install lots of protection from this ever happening again. I have one minor remaining glitch that appeared as part of/following the cleansing process that I would like to fix, and I believe this is the appropriate section to address it.

I have a Dell Dimension, Pentium 4, Windows XP SP2 with all the latest MS updates. The problem is as follows:

While starting up, I get a windows info box (with an 'OK' button) titled "REGSVR32". Inside the box it says: 'Load Library ("c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\qlifqbef.dll") failed - specified module could not be found'.

I can click the 'OK' button, and the box disappears and the system operates just fine, but I would really like to rid myself of this startup glitch. I have searched for the .dll file on the hard drive, but cannot find it, if it even exists. While searching, I have used the 'advanced search' features like hidden files, system files, etc. Please help me rid myself of this annoying message.

Also, opinions on whether to go ahead and install XP SP3 are welcomed, as my 'auto updates' is asking me to do it.... but I'm skeer'd... Thanks in advance!!

Brian MacKinnon

A:Error Message on startup

Click on start and then click on run. Then type "msconfig" and then click on the startup tab.
