A dummy question.
I got a new vista machine today. The portables apps (firefox, thunderbird et al) all work, but one important part has a problem. I got an error message that says something like
Could not initialize the browser's security component. The most likely problem is your brower's profile directory. ....
With Firefox, I can browse some sites, but I can't log on to any sites that require userid or passwords. With Thunderbird, it has the same error message and then it just sits there spinning its wheels.
Any ideas how to fix it?
