I've uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted all profiles, viewed and attempted every suggestion that was found via search engine. Firefox will only start with -P option and creation of new profile. Once closed, it will not open again using the profile just created. Any ideas as to what type of additional troubleshooting that is available. There are no crash reports or logs generated anywhere that can be found. Running on Windows 7 Professional.

A virus hosed my Windows 10 system. In restoring my apps, I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. It created its own default profile. I have saved earlier Profiles in a separate folder on a different drive. I copied them back to the default folders in the Users folder. When I run Profile Manager, it only shows the one Profile just created but won't recognize or list those other profiles. I need some help, since those profiles have all my Bookmarks, extensions, etc. Please help.

Hello!

I am now struggling to configure Firefox in a VDI environment and we want the Firefox profiles to be stored on a network share in order to take them out from the user folder.

Guess there should be a line in the mozilla.cfg file to change the path, but I'm not able to find it.

Anyone has faced the same situation? Is it possible to specify a path where all the profiles will be stored?

Thanks!!

I recently changed my laptop. I took a backup of the entire profile folder. In my new laptop, I deleted the entire contents of the new profile folder and pasted the contents from the old profile folder. This process works for me every time. However, this time my bookmarks are getting lost. Everything else is in place. Is there a method to manually restore only the bookmarks from my profile folder backup? I never took a manual backup of only bookmarks. Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Reference: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1174885 The final answer was 'roaming' which was all that ragnajoe and myself wanted to know. The other articles about profiles, backups, recovery, '2017-10-13-12-36-19-82d39f.png',etc., ASSUMEs everyone has the same knowledge background. The problem could have been answered by referring us to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_finding-your-profile-without-opening-firefox.

 Please use a more non-assuming tech editor next time.

I've been having issues w/FF 61.0.2 losing everything new such as new bookmarks, ANY setting. Have posted Qs and followed various steps. Finally tried a complete reinstall. I uninstalled (from Windows 7 Pro 64b), rebooted, downloaded & used the installer, w/gave me 62.0.2 which is only 3 days old. Only hiccup was an error stating 'MS Register Server has stopped working' and I chose 'close the program'.

I specifically unchecked the box upon install to NOT use any old settings when it prompted me 'FF has been installed before' yet a fresh install now gives me my old profiles prompt. I do not want ANY old settings. I need a COMPLETELY new pristine FF install.

Please help me get back to using FF where I can save bookmarks, install uBlock, make cookie exceptions, only default profile, etc.


Thank you profusely in advance,

Mac

I have an iMac. Operating system is High Sierra 10.13.6. Firefox was running slowly today and a pop up window came up on the bottom of my screen and gave me the option of "refreshing" Firefox. I hit the refresh button, and it was taking FOREVER to refresh Firefox, so I clicked out of it (the little red button) mid-refresh. Ever since then, when I try to open Firefox, I get a message stating that Firefox cannot be opened because my profile is missing or deleted. Shortly after this happened, a folder appeared on my desktop titled "Old Firefox Data" which contains about 60 items. I did not create this folder. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. I have also tried starting my iMac in safe mode, then restarting in regular mode. Was on the phone with Apple Tech Support for over an hour and they were unable to help. They are aware of the "Old Firefox Data" folder but they didn't know what to do with it. I am not tech or computer savvy. Other people have posted this exact question before, and answers have been provided, however I don't understand the answers or the instructions that supposedly solve this problem. This is why I'm asking this question again. I am hoping someone can help and provide a simplified answer or simplified instructions to solve this problem. Thank you.

I had a power cut whilst loading firefox. Tried to load when power restored, but get the message about the Profile missing or inaccessible. Thought that deleting the copy on C drive and loading a fresh copy of Firefox would solve the problem, so deleted it - didn't help - same message when I try to load a new copy. How can I install a totally new copy of the program ? I have another copy of Firefox on a laptop - can the profile from this help ?

To correct a problem in MS Word, Microsoft Support created a new Windows 10 profile on my laptop and reinstalled MS Office. Firefox is still on my laptop in the new profile, but its appearance is changed. It has lost all the profile data from the old Win 10 profile. I have looked at the articles under "Manage preferences and add-ons" but I don't think they solve my issue because I don't have a backup of my Firefox profile. Or, if I still do, I don't know how to find it on the old Windows profile, which is still on my laptop.

I had a lot of bookmarks, add-ons and preferences that I would like to retrieve for my browser. Is that possible?

When I tried to start Firefox after it had crashed i got the "Your profile cannot be loaded" error. I to reinstall it but the error persisted. I then googled and found that you could remove profiles.ini and ~/.cache/mozilla/. I've removed both of these as well as reinstalling Firefox multiple times.

But it still show the error message. It even "spread" to Thunderbird.

I'm using macOS Mojave 10.14.

I had Firefox 62.0.2 running on my Mac, with extensions like Ad Blocker and Translations, but as it was real real slow, I had asked to run without extensions, and the next time it responded with the "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." so I had followed all the advice published on the www, but after 2 days, found none of the answers and suggestions is working or is applicable, so I had implemented few removals and new installations of the application - but, always getting the same famos ”Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." and A Freeze during the "verification of firefox.app" each time, on completely new installation!

In fact, the Firefox/extensions folders were never created on my Mac (On new install, as well) but the application was working for a long time, and there was/is a Mozilla folder which seems to hold my Chrome (add-ons) but no Firefox folder exists on this and my other Mac in the Library/Application Support.

I even removed my Chrome and reinstalled it to see if it can be done, and there was no problem in new Chrome installation - as it is with Firefox 62.0.2
