My mac hard-drive fried and I lost everything on it, including the firefox profile. After my hard-drive was replaced I downloaded firefox but can't get it to start. The profile is gone with no backup anywhere, how can I get firefox to start over new and build a new profile from scratch?

Try to delete the profiles.ini file to force Firefox to create a new default profile.
