Piggy Bank Java App Hosed My Firefox App

So, I’m writing this on Safari now because Piggy-Bank (or the java app needed to run the firefox plugin) broke Firefox. I have tried removing the components of the java embedding plugin that needed to be install, but that didn’t work. I also tried downloading a new firefox app, which didn’t work either.

I removed the extension because the app was slowing down Firefox from loading tabs and opening windows. It pains me. So, I removed the extension, which caused the crap to hit the ceiling. Now, I just want Firefox to work again. Safari is a mediocre replacement, but I want my Firefox back!

Update: Well, I got everything back up and working by killing that Java thing and then found the real problem was that it did not remove the extension like it was supposed to – it just corrupted it. So, I went into my profile and cut out everything into a backup folder and added each file back a few at a time to narrow down the problem. Found it, fixed it, and we’re all back up and running again.
