My laptop died - but have FULL back up on ACRONIS cloud ... I want to find & restore my Firefox BOOKMARKS/ favorites etc. FIREFOX creates a PROFILE that contains all the data... BUT its hard to find!!??

I know location is USERname>AppData> Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox> PROFILES

BUT ... on my NEW Laptop when I go down through C:Drive hierarchy I cant see "AppData" If I search I can find ... BUT I cant actually locate via USER NAME.... Is this to do with HIDDEN FILES???

So when I go to my CLOUD BACKup I have the same problem. I can search & see ...but cant find in the hierarchy so I can recover those files & re-install on my new laptop... Any ideas where these hidden files are located?

Any ideas?

Thx for any help Cheers Keith

Automate profile migration during automated upgrade

We use Firefox ESR in our enterprise and have been using 32bit for a very long time even though we have all Windows 64 bit OSs, we are now attempting to move from Firefox 68.x ESR 32bit to Firefox 78.x ESR 64bit. The issue we are seeing is the Firefox profile does not automatically get picked up after the upgrade has taken place, our process is to uninstall the previous version and then install the new version. We know we can recover the profile by opening the browser and going to about:profiles but asking a user community or thousands makes it a little difficult on our end user support. Is there a way to automate the profile move during the upgrade of the browser in this scenario? Also not that a lot of our users have more than one profile in thier user folder so if there is an automated way of doing this how can we tell which profile is their current default profile?

Alright, I use Firefox like normal, but sometime today it stopped working, I get "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" error, I looked it up using safari, followed every possible interpretation of the instructions to no avail, I deleted the profiles folder and file, in both cache, and application support, on both my user folder and global HDD folder, no fix whatsoever, I don't know why this isn't working (yes I checked the hidden files, I searched my entire HDD and found no results for anything remotely named "Profile"/"Profiles" and I don't know what else to say.

I have checked: Application support (on every user) & Cache (on every user)

I don't know what's up, I also reinstalled Firefox after deleting everything related to it and I just don't know.

I gave up on Firefox due to its insistence that I could not stop it forcing updates on me no matter what settings I used in options as well as about: . I went back to IE9. Yes 9, as Microsoft couldn't repair Windows 7 to get a later version installed. Anyhow, after my motherboard became erratic and the replacement meant Win 7 no longer worked at all, I decided it was time to 'upgrade' to Win 10. After a complete reinstall of my software from scratch I realised just how bad Edge is and thought I might see how Firefox was holding up. I thought the sync could be useful and was getting on with it until 68.0.1! Since updating to this version automatically (the settings in options still do not work), it appears it is updating/resetting itself after every reboot. It restores the defaults and behaves as if it has just updated each time. Also after doing this for five times it appears to have broken ADBlock which advises it cannot work any more. I have had to uninstall it to get the tab to stop. So, as my questions were never answered previously, I'll ask again: 1. How do I get Firefox to stop updating itself? Options 'check for updates but let you choose when to install them' clearly still doesn't work as it updates regardless. 2. How do I get to keep my preferences. Having to go through them all each time Firefox updates is a pain. Surely it cannot be too much to create an ini file? 3. How do I convince Firefox not to keep installing version 68.0.1 over itself? 4. As Adblock no longer works in this version (I'm sure they are pleased with this result), what good alternatives are there?

Our company offers users the choice of Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox (60.3 ESR) for web browsing. Our users make use of non-persistent Virtual Desktop Infrastructure which means that each day they get a new desktop. We use a product called Ivanti Environment Manager to retain personal settings across sessions so that things like bookmarks, etc. to persist across sessions.

This product stores settings within a Microsoft SQL database and recommendation from the vendor of that application is only to keep what is necessary across sessions. This is great, we have a list of files and folders within the Firefox profile that we want to roam and some we don't.

Unfortunately this product cannot support wildcards in a folder path so users Firefox profiles are proving to cause a few issues. For example, my profile is C:\Users\Richard\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\i99zcqad.default. What we are looking to do is to have everyone's profile called something like Firefox.default so that we can configure exclusions knowing the profile name will be consistent.

Is there a method anywhere within Firefox where we could do this? Our current solution is a messy one to use a powershell script to find the profile name, rename it and then update the profiles.ini file with the new name but my worry is that some of the underlying sqllite files may face issues as a result of this.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated?

Thanks, Richard

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

win-key-R: firefox.exe -P, -p or -ProfileManager, does not run profile Manager, but starts the browser.

firefox.exe is located under: C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

I tried opening cmd prompt at the above location ( C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\ )

 to run firefox.exe by hand and all supported firefox switches only result in the browser starting.I

I'll try searching the registry for firefox.exe and see if anything is there.

I've tried deleting the firefox profile folders and launching the application. Still get the same error message. I tried deleting all firefox files, restarted and reinstalled and still get the same error message. I had Sophos Home installed and removed that and it still did not fix the problem. Also when i try to launch the profile manager via terminal it still just gives me the profile error message. This is extremely annoying.

Running OS 10.13.3 and had the latest version of Firefox running as my default browser, auto-updating. on 3.11.2018, I started getting the missing profile error. I followed several support threads with this issue, like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible. I could not find or repair the profile.ini file or even find a Firefox folder in ~/Library/Application Support or ~/Library/caches. I had a Mozilla folder in the former but not Firefox. I also had Firefox synced to my Firefox Android browser.

I've reinstalled 58.0.2 a few times, nothing helps. I cannot find profiles.ini anywhere on my computer.

I've tried including the Troubleshooting information, but it doesn't work, I assume because I'm on Chrome?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

I've tried the instructions "How to run Firefox when your profile is missing or inaccessible" at https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjU9PHRn-TYAhUBI6wKHb5QAWQQFggzMAI&url=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.mozilla.org%2Fen-US%2Fkb%2Fhow-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible&usg=AOvVaw0G8EFm-I8kbu-4SlQ5WCpe

This doesn't help because it asks me to use the profile manager, but any attempt at launching Firefox or anything inside it produces the same result.

I've also tried replacing Firefox with a fresh copy.

The Profile folder is present in the usual place and I've verified that I have read-write permission on the folder and everything within it. 57.0.4 on MacOS 10.13.2.

-- I was using firefox all the time until recently; a week and a half or so ago I was doing my school work using firefox when it crashed. I brought it back up and it crashed again in about 10 minutes and then since then it will NOT work at all. I tried to bring it up and an error message of "missing profile" stating: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." -- (which doesn't make sense to me I never had one to begin with?)... I have removed firefox completely from my device and reinstalled it 3 times and it still does the same thing. I have tried troubleshooting it and it does work I have tried to change it to earlier versions.... nothing. I'm not certain what to do. My laptop is a Lenovo Flex 3 windows 10 OS.

Thank you all in advance or you help. Hopefully it can be figured out.
