You can also refer to the attached screenshot if you need additional context on how to run the command (just click the Windows icon button on your taskbar and type in "firefox.exe -p").
Hopefully this answer managed to help you, and if it did, kindly mark this answer as the solution(solved)! If it did not, kindly report back so I can help you!

This is the relevant support article. Refreshing is a last resort. I suggest you create a new profile instead. You can do that with Firefox open or closed. You can remove the old profile later when you have retrieved any data you may want.
