I have a Win XP SP2 virtual machine running on Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, in which all Firefox (Version 2) settings are being reset every time the VM starts up. This includes but is not limited to history and bookmarks. Not a big deal, since this VM is used only for software testings, but rare. Have you seen this behavior before ? What would you suggest ? The host OS is also XP, but SP3. Thanks,

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only thing which comes to mind is some sort of auto snapshot rollback is setup for when the VM shuts down. Does anthine else refer when you bring the machine back up?

    Everything else looks normal. All other changes remain. The only affected program seems to be Firefox.
