I've tried looking for my profile in the Library/Application support folder, but it is not there. I'm stuck and frustrated as hell!

Hi Fred. I have tried all those solutions but nothing has worked. Happened again today when FF locked up and i had to force quit.

One think i noticed is that the Firefox profile should be located in my Mac User folder, in a folder called library.

But when i open my user folder, there is NO FIREFOX folder there. See below.

How do i fix this? Im so frustrated!
