My mother and I both use Firefox on different models of Toshiba laptops. Starting a few months ago Firefox began refreshing itself without either of us doing anything. It's usually either right before or right after a FF update is available; downloading the update right away doesn't seem to matter (as in, updating doesn't fix anything; it still happens). My mom's FF refreshed itself today as the 67.0.3 update became available.

Every time this happens I have to go through and change all of our settings back to they way they were, and reconfigure all of our add-ons. It's really frustrating.

Since the last update to Firefox 65, it won't launch on my Windows 7 64 bit. It shows in the running process. I've gone through all the forums and helps. I've checked compatibility, cleared out my allowable programs and re-entered, checked my Windows defender, plus everything else I could find. It would not open in safe mode although I tried something once (no idea what) and it did open briefly to save my bookmarks but then I couldn't get out or back in. I'm at a loss what to do at this point and I really like Firefox. I'm not savvy with computers but I know some and can follow directions. Firefox worked fine until the update and nothing has changed on my computer since that point except downloading Chrome to have a browser.

I've been using Firefox a long time. Never any problem until immediately after the last automatic update procedure today. Now the application will not load. Instead, I only get an error message "Profile Missing..." (see attached screen shot) I tried downloading the latest version from Mozilla and re-installing. It did not resolve the issue. I still got the same error message.

Computer info: Apple Mac Pro 2009 running OS 10.11.6 El Capitan.

After deleting my user profile, firefox won't start anymore. Every time I start firefox the Crash Report window opens. This happens also in safe mode. I tried creating a profile with the ProfileManager option, but the result is the same. I have been waiting for a couple of weeks to see if a system update would eventually fix this (I installed firefox from Arch's repos). I run Arch Linux 64-bit. I have also tried installling firefox-nightly and even downloading firefox from mozilla with no success

I suddenly started getting the error "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.". I followed the directions for removing the .ini file (I'm on Mac OS High Sierra). But the problem didn't go away.

I tried using the Firefox Profile Manager. It does launch the profile manager window where there were no profiles. I created a new profile. It then opened Firefox. I could use it ok. But then I closed Firefox and re-opened it and got the error again.

Here is what shows up in my console window when I run the profile manager:

MacBook-Pro-2:me$ sudo /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P MacBook-Pro-2:me$ 2017-11-30 14:27:41.594 plugin-container[8508:15019641] *** CFMessagePort: bootstrap_register(): failed 1100 (0x44c) 'Permission denied', port = 0xb943, name = 'com.apple.tsm.portname' See /usr/include/servers/bootstrap_defs.h for the error codes. 2017-11-30 14:27:57.203 plugin-container[8524:15021634] *** CFMessagePort: bootstrap_register(): failed 1100 (0x44c) 'Permission denied', port = 0xae3f, name = 'com.apple.tsm.portname' See /usr/include/servers/bootstrap_defs.h for the error codes. 2017-11-30 14:28:11.580 plugin-container[8533:15023234] *** CFMessagePort: bootstrap_register(): failed 1100 (0x44c) 'Permission denied', port = 0xc23f, name = 'com.apple.tsm.portname' See /usr/include/servers/bootstrap_defs.h for the error codes.

I can't get this browser to work at all! Is there a way to completely uninstall and start over?

I transferred all files, including key3.db and logins.json to a new computer. Everything looks just like it did on the old one, except the saved logins are missing. The Exceptions-Saved Logins is filled with the previous data, but no Saved Logins.

This process worked fine on another such transfer I recently did.

The multiple folders, single or double digit hex address folder names, are under a ////Profiles/{random characters}.default folder name. Clearing the cache did not remove. Can they safely be removed manually by removing that xyz123.default user folder?

I have a my Firefox profile and a copy of its folder. After a certain amount of time launching Firefox with this profile, the history and cookies are missing in the browser, as well as some other preferences and data. What I do is that I close Firefox, delete the profile folder, duplicate the copy to a new copy and rename the original copy to match the profile folder name. The next time I launch Firefox history and cookies are here again. Then after 3 or 4 launches, they've disappeared again, so here I go again with the copies.

I don't know what causes the profile folder not to work after a few launches. One time the history was there again even after rebooting the computer, most of the time it disappears after a few hours (after a few relaunches of Firefox).

The profile originally became corrupted when I performed a cold shutdown of my computer while Firefox was open. I remember that when I booted again, my profile was well; it was at the next Firefox launch that the data was missing. I opened the sqlite files with the sqlite3 command line and they looked clean. Next time I launched Firefox the data was available again. I made a copy of the folder in case of, and there I am with the merry-go-round of copies.
