Hi, I thought Firefox updated automatically so can someone please tell me why this box seemingly opens every time I open Firefox. I am using version 92.01 (64bit) . When Box first appeared I attempted an update and lost all bookmarks etc. would like to know what I'm getting wrong before I go any further. Thanks, John.

Sometimes when the browser thinks there is a problem with the profile, it will create a new one.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
