Firefox keep going into Safe mode, and I loose everything. Maddening!

Posted

About once a month Firefox goes into Safe mode and I loose all my settings. Have to reinstall it. Very maddening. Can't you create stable software?

Hi.

What do you mean with Safe Mode?


If you lost personal data then it is possible that a new default-release profile folder has been created. See "Determine if Firefox has created a new profile":

You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.

Firefox 67 and later can use a dedicated profile for each of the Firefox update channels and will lock the profile, so it can only be used by Firefox in a specific installation folder. For Release versions this profile would be a xxxxxxxx.default-release profile, profiles used in older Firefox versions usually used a xxxxxxxx.default profile (a refresh adds a time stamp).

Safe mode. What do I mean - Firefox locks up. Shut it down and restart it and it announces its in SAFE MODE, with no way to get it back to normal mode. Lost all plugins, WITH NO WAY TO GET THEM BACK. All options have been lost. Very aggravating.
