hello,

If Firefox starts up without your bookmarks, passwords, saved tabs and other settings, check whether your data is available in a different profile. This can happen because Firefox creates a dedicated profile for each Firefox installation starting with Firefox version 67. To recover your Firefox data and settings from another profile: Type about:profiles into the Firefox address bar and press the Enterkey. This will open the About Profiles page.

I wonder, will it be a new broken profile with every update?

Hello Icextend,

Try to remove compatibility.ini in this profile. You may have to edit prefs.js as well. Note that it isn't recommended to copy a full profile as this can cause issues. Only copy the data files you really need.
