Firefox has opened successfully for years. Today, I double clicked on the icon, and it will not launch. I uninstalled and reinstalled it two three times and no luck. So I then tried performing the profile creation and got the following result.

Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable. [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIToolkitProfileService.createProfile]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://mozapps/content/profile/createProfileWizard.js :: onFinish :: line 181" data: no]

Not sure how to solve this.

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded, even after new installation on OS 10.14.3

I had Firefox 62.0.2 running on my Mac, with extensions like Ad Blocker and Translations, but as it was real real slow, I had asked to run without extensions, and the next time it responded with the "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." so I had followed all the advice published on the www, but after 2 days, found none of the answers and suggestions is working or is applicable, so I had implemented few removals and new installations of the application - but, always getting the same famos ”Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." and A Freeze during the "verification of firefox.app" each time, on completely new installation!

In fact, the Firefox/extensions folders were never created on my Mac (On new install, as well) but the application was working for a long time, and there was/is a Mozilla folder which seems to hold my Chrome (add-ons) but no Firefox folder exists on this and my other Mac in the Library/Application Support.

I even removed my Chrome and reinstalled it to see if it can be done, and there was no problem in new Chrome installation - as it is with Firefox 62.0.2

Others have asked similar questions but for different platforms and none of the suggestions have either worked, been appropriate for the setup or understood by me (a non programmer!). I am operating High Sierra 10.13.6 and after migrating to Firefox 67 have lost everything to do with previous setup.

When trying to set a previous profile as default I get the error message about launching an older version of Firefox and gives me a quit or new profile option only which is not satisfactory.

Is there not a simple solution to this unasked for level of complication that allows me to restore my existing bookmarks and passwords without delving deep into processes I don't understand and inputting lots of lines of code? It feels like I've taken my car in to fill up the tank and been told to rebuild the engine to get my car going again.

Im inputting this using Chrome because almost every attempt to use firefox causes a crash

All help gratefully received.

When I tried to start Firefox after it had crashed i got the "Your profile cannot be loaded" error. I to reinstall it but the error persisted. I then googled and found that you could remove profiles.ini and ~/.cache/mozilla/. I've removed both of these as well as reinstalling Firefox multiple times.

But it still show the error message. It even "spread" to Thunderbird.

I'm using macOS Mojave 10.14.

Hello!

I am now struggling to configure Firefox in a VDI environment and we want the Firefox profiles to be stored on a network share in order to take them out from the user folder.

Guess there should be a line in the mozilla.cfg file to change the path, but I'm not able to find it.

Anyone has faced the same situation? Is it possible to specify a path where all the profiles will be stored?

Thanks!!

Hello.

In organization we like to use Firefox as default browser. But we have a every day problem with profiles.

After update, Firefox create new profile and not copy user data to it. So user lost hes tabs, extensions, history and e.t.c. We can see two or more profiles for one user.

For example user logon to computer with Firefox version 68.0.1. Firefox automatically update to 68.0.2, and user now have new profile without custom data.

profiles.ini looks like:

[Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/6qa5a710.default-release Locked=1

[Profile1] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/6qa5a710.default-release

[Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/xu3ic03g.default-1561039332923 Default=1

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

We create powershell script for workaround issue. Script copy files from privies profile: $profileCurrent\*.sqlite" $profileCurrent\sessionstore.jsonlz4" $profileCurrent\extensions\*.*" $profileCurrent\*.json"

You mast know that in organization we user roaming profile and ue-v, so users can logon on any computer. Some computers can be with older Firefox version like 68.0.1 or new one like 68.0.2.

Please help find solution for this issues. Can Firefox account help with this? Or we mast create some more clever script?

Thank you.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted all profiles, viewed and attempted every suggestion that was found via search engine. Firefox will only start with -P option and creation of new profile. Once closed, it will not open again using the profile just created. Any ideas as to what type of additional troubleshooting that is available. There are no crash reports or logs generated anywhere that can be found. Running on Windows 7 Professional.
