Hello,

since yesterday after closing FF to restart, I encountered a problem. Everytime, when I try to open FF, it says that the profile isn´t available or not accessible.

I tried already to rename in /library/Application Support/Firefox, Profiles.ini -> Profiles.iniOLD and the folder Profiles -> ProfilesOLD.

As well I tried to call the Profile Manager from terminal using the below commands, since FF isn´t open. /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -ProfileManager

No matter, whether I rename the profile.ini or try to call the profile manager. Each time I get the same warning, that the profile isn´t available.

Since I tried every possible solution, which I could find on the help pages, I hope to find help from the community.

best regards Corey

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… (læs mere)

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?
