Recently, Firefox updated itself and I started having problems. The most annoying one is that it creates a new default profile and replaces my existing one every once in a while. It seems to happen every week or so. I copy over my addtional profile files, but it keeps happening. Three family members use the PC, but I seem to be the only one affected.

I did a complete uninstall and reinstalled a fresh copy of Firefox, but no luck. Any ideas?

Regard...John

Firefox 59.0.2 x64 / Windows 7 SP1 x64

Where is the bookmark import file after refresh?

I refreshed my Firefox but the bookmark file the Help Document said would be in the Old Firefox data folder is not there. As you can see in the image I do not have a file called "places.sqlite". I only refreshed Firefox under the indication that I would not lose any of my bookmarks (they would be saved and I could get them back).

I had many bookmarks. Are they lost now?

A message showed up when I opened FireFox saying "your Mozzila is running slooow refresh your Mozzilla today. So I did the refresh. I now have lost bookmarks and settings. Also the sync I did with the program weeks ago no longer works AND WORST OF ALL You Added Add-Ons I DIDN'T Need or Want without even asking. So Now I have to spend a bunch of time getting it set up the way I liked It. Or maybe Not. Is definitely time to find a new BROWSER!

Aside from needing more RAM, I see that a first step is to refresh Firefox. I see it saves quite a bit, but I don't know what I'll be losing.......it says I will lose These items and settings will be removed:

   Extensions and themes
   Website permissions
   Modified preferences
   Added search engines
   DOM storage 
   Security certificate and device settings 
   Download actions 
   Toolbar customizations 
   User styles 

I don't know what DOM storage is, and if I don't have a security certificate, is that what allows me to go to sites ? I'm hesitant to refresh 'blindly' and then learn afterwards that some crucial changes were made on the refresh and now I can't visit sites I presently can

The Troubleshooting Information tab will open. o Under the Application Basics section, click on Open Folder. Your profile folder will open.

I did not approve any installations and it happened first firefox just crashed and after that i run it again and it crashed again and this time i see it has been reinstalled with loosing all i have been doing on firefox. What was this bullshit installation - it really pisses me off? Explain yourself? My configuration was that it would not install any updates - what is this invasion of privacy?

Yesterday I noticed a folder on my desktop named "Old Firefox Data". In that folder were copies of two of my profiles (I have at least a dozen profiles set up). They are both dated 11/11/15 and timestamped about 35 minutes apart. I've researched it a bit and the information I got was that it is a folder created when one 'Refreshes Firefox'. I am fairly certain that I've never used that function. This happened just before or after Fx upgraded itself from v42 to v43.

A user of one of my extensions posted a message to my support forum that the same thing happened to him and he swears he never 'Refreshed Firefox'. in fact, he doesn't know how to do it even if he wanted. He said he got up to answer the phone and when he came back, his computer had re-booted, the folder appeared on his desktop and all his extensions were missing from Fx along with any customization of the UI.

Refreshing Firefox is not something that can easily be done accidentally. In fact, I can't even find a button to do this with Fx v43.

Is there any other way for that folder to be created other than 'Refreshing Firefox'?

Note: I realize there are similar questions on this board about this, but none of the answers really provide a satisfactory solution.

I want to refresh my Firefox on my laptop. Since I have sync on for all my devices, if I refresh my firefox on my laptop, will it propagate to my desktop? I want to refresh my laptop firefox (aka remove all add-ons) without it being removed on my desktop.
