Flock again

Flock just failed again this morning, the way that I did a while ago, see last post here.

I did the same as in last time, i.e. uninstalled it and install again the current version 0.4.10 I made a mistake.

This time I made a copy of the profiles folder and copied everything within the folder to the new installation. Flock didn't like it. Something in there must have caused the failure, process has to be repeated.

The 2nd time I copied across just the flock_favorites.rdf and prefs.js file which saved me setting up favorites and preferences such as content settings etc. The signons.txt file can't be reused, which is a good security feature, therefore you'll have to enter all the passwords again and let flock remembers it.


  1. Good recovery!

    My guess is that it is a result of the beta version of Firefox that Flock is based on. This has been updated to Firefox 1.5 in our for the release still under development.

    he most recent continuous QA builds, are quite usable. Give it a try, if you want to contribute to making Flock better for this release. There is the opportunity for you to test, document, design, develop, and present your ideas to the community.

    Look for Flock "Early Adopters" release in February with features including:

    * Import Favorites
    * Flickr uploader
    * Online Favorite Collections at
    * Better favorites navigation
    * Faster feed viewing
    * More blogging support
    * Conversation and Mini Mapper Topbar

    All the best to you,

  2. Have you tried the new version?

  3. Thanks for the reminder, I'll do that real soon.
