What's the easiest way to delete Local Folders? They're driving

I fiinally did get them to go away following instructions on
the web,
but they keep coming back. I don't think I'm editing about:config

Yes, but it's not recommended. See

I've tried that - no luck.

Just to note: The instructions say to edit prefs.js, not
about:config. When you say "I don't think I'm editing about:config
correctly", were you referring to those instructions?

The instructions also mention about:config at the beginning.

Also be aware that if you create a new account, it will contain
Local Folders.

I finally got it to stay gone by repeating the instructions several
more times.
Just a suggestion.

I went through those hoops a long time ago, while I was still using
Netscape and it took me a long time to get this to work to my liking.
Eventually, I decided to live with those controversial local Folders.

As bookmarks in FF 3.xx today, Local Folders were then a very popular
topic; lots of people did not understand why they are there, and as is
the case for bookmarks in FF 3.xx today, others easily got offended
when users remarked on the complexity.

I eventually decided to use Local Folders as a storage place for my
Email Archives. This way, my archives are never far away when I need
them, but they are not in the way when I don't need them, which is 99%
of the time. Getting rid of Local Folders is satisfying, sure, but
making the best use of them is probably a wiser course of action. My
experience at least!


removing local folders may cause problems down the road, as other things
may require them. For example, newsgroups use the local folders

Local Folders are also targeted as the folders for the Global Inbox, should anyone decide down the line to use it.
