I inadvertently hid My Firefox on Windows 7. When I tried to restore it I got this message, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.". I was previously asked by someone if I restored a Profile folder from a backup and didn't include profiles.ini. I didn't know I had to be aware of that. At this point the back up versions are gone and I cannot find a profile folder in any Mozilla folder. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

I am sorry. I just realized that my problem isn't so much with Firefox or Mozilla. It seems that my Windows 7 user profile is hidden and I can't make it visible again. As such I suspect that Firefox does not see it and cannot respond as it normally would. I apologize for bothering you with an incorrect assessment. Thank you for your assistance though. That was most kind.
