Yeah thanks and shame this doesn't resolve the issue some of us are having with Font Rendering or the strange "Mozilla-Temp-Files" issue.

I should, but I'm not sure if it's a bug or not, they haven't said anything about it despite me asking them.

/rant on

Unfortunately many programs create and then leave behind temporary files and folders these days Have a look in your %temp% folder (usually C:\Windows\Temp) sometime. I guess programmers think that cleaning up their mess isn't necessary in these days of large hard disks.

/rant off

Yeah I cleaned out 700mb of stuff out of my %temp% directory a couple days ago (it's been months). I used Windows 7's Disk Cleanup tool. I should probably run the thing once a month or something.

Every night, I run a .bat file that copies my data from my primary 1 TB Hard Drive to my 500 GB backup hard drive.

Basically, its just a bunch of xcopy commands.

In any case, to help solve the issue with my temp folder getting to much junk in it, I just added the following two lines of code to the end of my batch file

(note, replace xxx with your actual user profile directory name)

CD\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp
rmdir /s /q "C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp"
 

It will remove all files and folders in your temp folder. Anything that is in use at the time will not be removed. However, any junk that is left there that is not needed is removed.

FF 18.0.1 is available for download at that unmentionable place that is public, where Moziilla puts their stuff, but where we're not supposed to go or know about

No automatic update yet.
