    Wierd message when accessing FireFox


    In the last couple of days, I'm getting a message window when accessing FireFox. The message reads:

    Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access this item.

    If I erase the message and retry Firefox, it loads. I double checked, and I am the system admin. Any ideas why this is happening and how to stop it?

    It didn't occur to me that the problem could be with FireFox (facepalm.)
