Can't delete corrupted profile.

Hi,

I use FEBE and Profile Manager, because I have tailored FF to my small screen, and personal needs, with many add-ons.

I recently made a new profile for FF42, and used FEBE to overwrite it with my customary profile settings.

All went well until I came on here to ask a question about my Thunderbird: Halfway through asking the question FF froze, and I had to kill it in Process Explorer. When I opened it again, the first tab just said 'connecting', and the whole thing froze as soon as that came up. Clearing all my caches with CCleaner made no difference. There was no malware detected by Malwarebytes.

I opened a previous version of FF (Thank g-d for FEBE!), and tried to overwrite the stuck profile with my current settings again, but it just froze, and had to be terminated from Process Explorer.

I tried to delete the corrupt profile in Profile Manager, but that just froze as well. :/

Luckily, it didn't break Profile Manager altogether, and, after reloading it, I could make a new profile for 42, and give it my preferred FEBE profile, and am using it now. As I don't know what corrupted the first 42, I'm a bit wary that this one might break too.

The corrupt 42 is still in the list in Profile Manager, but freezes everything when I try to delete it. How can I clean it out?

Thanks for any ideas as to what went wrong, and any tips on clearing the corrupt profile without damaging my good ones. Have I been locked out of that profile by something changing my permissions? I would have thought that MWB would have detected any obvious mischief.

Cheers.

I had Waterfox on my computer up until a few days ago. I got a bug. I uninstalled a few programs to reload. When I download waterfox and firefox, I get these messages: Your profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or corrupted. I cannot find the profile manager in the files. I tried using "run". I have uninstalled it and did a clean boot and installed again: no good. I have windows 10 on an HP Notebook. I have tried most of the fixes I found for this problem but most of them are old fixes. I will appreciate any help you can give because I have found Waterfox is the best browser for me. My computer is a 64bit. Thank you, Marcy

Win XP (why? because I like the interface) totally crashed and had to be reinstalled. How do I get Firefox to install on a drive other than the C drive? I want FF back in the same location that it was. (The files on Drive F are all still in place.) Also, I want to keep my old Profile and Add-Ons, etc.

I would like my old bookmarks to be available have tried the help info regarding copying files between profiles but does not seem to work. I can access the old and new profile but when I right click on Places.sqlite on old profile and select copy, then on new file there is no paste option. I am not computer literate and an OAP so would appreciate simple step by step instructions. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I had to reinstall my OS (linuxmint - debian edition - 201403). I left /home intact. After the process, I checked the profile -- nothing was changed. So I ran Firefox. But, my bookmarks didn't load (only the few that come with a new install). It didn't load the preferences either. I tried some tricks to get it to load my profile (i.e. create a new profile and copy the contents, Help>Troubleshooting Information -- Reset). Still no joy. I even tried running in a shell with -P <profile> for both the original and new profiles. Still no bookmarks (or anything from my original profile).

Also, on the Help>Troubleshooting Information page, I click 'open directory' and see my original profile.

What's wrong, and how do I fix it?
