Why can't I see the contents in my Profile Folder when it says I have 144 megs in it? MAC OS 10.6.8 Firefox 19.0


Why can't I see the contents in my Profile Folder when it says I have 144 megs in it? This started when I upgraded Firefox. MacBook Pro OS 10.6.8 Firefox 19.0

I even tried creating a new folder, then copied and pasted contents that I can't see in Profile Folder into the new folder but selecting all, command C, command V. Then I went to the new folder and the info is telling me there are still 144 mb in that new folder but I still can't see the contents. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello lakota85usa, the profile folder is hidden Mac OS X 10.7 and above, not in your version(10.6.8), see if the "Showing hidden files and folders on Mac OS X" in the next link is helpful: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Show_hidden_files_and_folders#Mac_OS_X

thank you
