Can not Launch Firefox successful due to application profile settings in MAC?

Posted

Team, I currently work for Oracle and need to use Firefox to access our CRM apps. Everytime I launch the firefox.app I get the following error message? Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

Am currently using OS X Mountain Lion - Downloaded Firefox 21.

Your feedback would be highly appreciated
