After last update I got this message , translated from Swedish to English: "Your Firefoxprofile can´t be used. It may be lost or impossible to reach"

I have uninstalled Firefox by putting it in the dustbin and then reinstalled a new downloaded copy, but with the same result and message.

What to do?

Best regards

I keep getting asked to put mozilla on my phone... I don't have a smart phone - I am 60 years old and don't intend to get one.... I don't want to be pestered with things like this. If there is a button for me to pick saying don't ask again I can click it and go on my way... I am sure I am not the only person using your services that does not need all the bells and whistles...

According to the Task Manager, when FF tries to start it stops booting at around 9,700-9,800K. This is pretty consistent. Right now it is at 9,764K. Last time I tried there was another FF file that went up to 34,XXXK. This time not.

I tried doing a System Restore but it did not complete because some of the files could not be updated.

Found an exe files for my version, installed that, still the same problem. I thought that maybe the exe file was damaged, but the new one does exactly the same thing.

So many help screens say go to the Menu but that is not possible when it won't even boot up!

I did not install any software or do anything to the computer before this. To make matters worse, somehow internet connection got disconnect. With much googling, found how to fix that.

I have saved my profile folder to the desktop because I cannot afford to lose all my bookmarks, etc.

Now what?

I am asking this question on a different computer as the laptop is too much of a pain to type on with that pad in the front. Besides, without FF..... So no automated info gathering will help you.

I tried opening Opera which I have on that laptop and it won't even start at all! Chrome does, that's how I downloaded a new exe file.

Hi! Not much on details. I just want to move my existing profile to a server. Can I just copy name.default to the server, rename name.default on the client, and on the client create a link name.default to the server profile? Or, can I use ProfileManager to create a new profile on the server and copy the contents of the client profile to the new one?

I am separating my personal email from my work email, so I want to migrate some of my Apple Mail accounts to Thunderbird, and leave the rest in Apple Mail. The instructions show that all of the Apple Mail will be imported, and I really, really don't want that—there are 17 accounts in total, and importing and then deleting the unused ones would take hours.

I'm running Mojave 10.14.6.

Hi, long ago I worked with TB and my profile does not support the Lightning (Calendar Management) function. If I want to bring my old TB profile lets say to a new computer running Win 10 its fine and I know how this works. The problem on the Win 10 system: I have no Calendar functions. Want I want now is the following:

  • Install a new Win 10 system and create with TB Profile Manager a new profile.

I know the new TB profile is capable to support Calendar functions so this is want I want.

  • Then Import all the important files from my old TB Profile into the new profile.
  • A manual file copy of lets say prefs.js, session.json, places.sqlite, abook.mab etc. from the old TB profile to the new TB profile does not work so the question is: how can I import the old profile files to the new just created TB profile???

I have been using Firefox for years on laptop. I installed it on my Android phone, but I keep getting asked to Sign In when I want to use it, unlike the computer, and there is a five minute expiry code to put in. Why is this? Is it not possible to configure Firefox on Android without all this fussing around??
