StarBurn+FireFox default page bug – quick fix from StarBurn team

This is how you can quickly get rid of the problem:
Delete the file user.js which can be found there:
“[Drive Name]:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[SomeChars].default\user.js”

Path Example:
“C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\5kgurte6.default\user.js”



  1. Thank you, Slava; too late for me, however. After StarBurn hijacked the settings on Opera, IE and Firefox, and resisted several days’ attempts to resolve the problem, I uninstalled the program. Regedits were required to remove dozens more settings for StarBurn, StarPort and Rocket Division entries. Looks like it would have been a great program, and(almost)worth the asking price, had the programmers been a little less anxious about imprinting their name on my memory.

  2. If this is called “Quick Fix” from Starburn, I wonder what would be NOT a quick fix???

  4. I have used the FREE starburn for a while now and it is the only burning program that has not caused any problems for me, unlike that nero rubbish that completely took over my computer and caused all sorts of problems for me. I tried the new starburn from GAOTD and other than a few extras (notably the DVD decrypter) I found it to be no different than the free version in regards to stability and performance. excellence all the way, thanks rocket division software and giveaway of the day

  5. Thanks Slava. But as #1, I (and likely many others) will have uninstalled StarBurn without having tested the program. I can’t comment but without bugs it looks promissing – maybe a re-run?

  6. I do not know which was more annoying, fixing this problem or the fact that starburn’s contact email is nothing but a series of antispam blockades that require you to respond repeatably to get the message through without any verification anyone ever read the message.

  7. Thank you. But I am like the rest, after the problems I deleted it. I did download the free one but I would much rather have the other one. Re-run would be very appreciative.

  8. Thanks for this fix. Many (including myself) have uninstalled the program due to this problem and have seen regedit issues from the unistall. This would be a great program to re-offer. thanks.

  9. I never had this problem to begin with, didn’t the setup wizard ask you if you would like to set your home page to theirs? You people have to pay more attention to setup wizards!

  10. Got to say, you folks need to learn to read.
    During set-up it ASKS YOU in plain English if you want to set your
    homepage to Starburn’s. If you answered YES then no one is to “blame”
    other than yourselves for not reading the questions.
    I double-checked the above and since I answered NO to the above question I do not have this problem.

    That is like holding a Doctor at fault if he asked if you wanted treatment and you said “no” and then you got sick.

  11. Starburn is FREE (not a trial) on their site. No need to wait for a repost here.

  12. I’m kicking myself for not downloading it. Looked like a great program. If it comes up again, I’ll surely snach it up.

  13. Is it not incredible that the Starburn Saga continues?
    Again the childish boasting as in #9 and pointless remarks from someone who should learn to read the comments from day one so that he understands the principles involved as in #10.
    Noticeable also that the Starburn team give no apology and try to pass the “permanent take over” of the Home Page as a “bug”.
    Has the time not arrived to end this useless bickering and lay the Starburn story to rest?

  14. I downloaded Starburn later in the day & Installed on both a Vista & XP machine both of which default to Foxfire. In neither case could I find user.js on my system. Was it modified later in the day to remove this problem?

  15. What is the quality of dvd when it shrinks dvd to 4gb by starburn. Any ideas? can it be compared with other ones around?

  16. I have attempted to fix the StarBurn+Firefox default page startup. I can
    not find the file user.js ….. I have deleted StarBurn and files in
    registry. I have also, deleted FireFox and reinstalled with no success.
    Can’t seem to get my home page back. Any additional ideas ?

  17. Starburn was a hit at GOTD – no doubt about that. Multiple forum posts in multiple forum categories, comments on the download page, and screams into the night air.

    I used a “Starburn” product months ago. It worked quite well. The program was lost in a computer crash. Pieces-parts of Starburn must have survived the crash because I was not able to install the GOTD version due to a Starburn driver issue (info from a Starburn error message pop-up during installation). I spent several hours over two days trying to make the GOTD program work.

    The records show that a lot of effort from many GOTD users was spent on the Starburn program. Certainly Starburn rates another go with GOTD.

    A second issue brought to point by the Starburn effort is “what happens when multiple users have problems with a GOTD offering”? Why have forums for users to post their problems if everyone knows little or no action will be taken? Twenty-four hour issues are wiped clean and we see no action from GOTD. At the very least GOTD should post a comment concerning an installation failure when many of its supporters have a problem.

    Do we get an answer from the GOTD team? I hope so. Please notice that I used the word “supporters” – because that is what we are.

    Please excuse the spelling errors – I am not very smart, the computer crashed and the dictionary don’t work!

  18. Hello

    In my house/castle we put Starburn on 2 computers, during the night and although we can both read, we were all very tired. So it happened to us as well, but I’m not a quitter so I told everyone not to uninstall the program.

    Then last week I found this blog, and I thought “Oh Good the answer”, but it didn’t work for me either as I couldn’t trace my way through the file thread. But I solved it on my own computer, I needed a place to start so I searched for application data and from there I found the firefox thread and made the required change.

    So drunk with my own success, I searched for application data on the other computer, but I found not a sausage. So I put my thinking head on, and repeated the search this time including hidden files, and success.

    Sorry it took me so long to think of this, I was going off my rocket looking at all the blue on that home page.

    Best wishes


  19. I always read what people say about any “free” download and if is thumbs down there is no way I”m going to be downloading it.My other issue pertaining to games,I am a Mahjong freak.If anyone could supply me with download’s for free games would be great!Please send a site “thumbs up” for a download.Thanks to all in the know.xo

  20. Thankfully ‘even when I’m tired Ialways check the wizard when I’m installing after ending up with a similar situation several months ago. I’m glad I did as this burning software kicks a$$

  22. This so-called “fix” DID NOT WORK for my system.

    “100% CLEAN, NO ADWARE! NO SPYWARE!”? Nope, not at all. This BROWSER HIJACK clearly qualifies as adware.
