Hi, please see if there is a 2nd Profile in this location, it will be the oldest dated folder.

Please : uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files , C:\Program Files(x86) & C:\ProgramData Then restart system. Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. (Note: This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's) Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files. Note: your Firefox Profile is saved.

Reinstall with Current Release Firefox 61.0.1 with a Full Version Installer

If the issue continues : Profile : Make a new one and test ...:
