I have a locked file that shows up as Invalid Symlinks error. I am not sure but I think it may be Profile.ini Here is what I am getting that tells me its a Non-Existent Destination file. My question is why is it Invalid symlink and what can I do to fix it? Here is what I get: Lock In symlink folder /home/butch/.mozilla/firefox/6q1a4nt2.default-release 127.0.1.1:+2708 type of error Non-existent Destination File 2022-03-08 21:15:25

When I deleted it wouldn't open so I had to completely reinstall it. My Email address is: [removed email from public]

The "lock" file is not a real symlink, but is a semaphore file to make it possible to lock the profile and prevent other Firefox processes from using this profile. The lock file is only there when Firefox is running.
