If it is in fact based on Firefox, may well be worth the look. Been using Firefox for quite a while. Makes Microsoft's Exploder, sorry, Explorer look pretty bad.

From the screenshots it just looks like firefox with a netscape theme and the auto form filler extension. Hardly worth caling it netscape unless they changed some of the actual internals.

Not had any problems myself. I've used it since it was Pheonix and I've never encountered anything even remotely close to what you are describing. Firefox should in no way, shape nor form affect the start up files.
