How do I fix/repair my 'Firefox Profile?'

I tried a Firefox update due to slow running; when it didn't work, I stopped it and deleted all FF files. On download (many attempts), all appears to go well until I get a "Your FF profile cannot be located. It may be missing or inaccessible." message.

What must I do to fix or the problem? Thx, Pete T.

You will have to use the Profile Manager to create a new default profile. Apparently you removed the profile folder, but left profiles.ini that still has your previously used profile.
