Suddenly! Cannot open Firefox because of the error message: "Firefox profile missing or unavailable."

I found the profile in my Library.

Looked for internet advertised "Firefox profile manager," but could not find it. Only one I could find was obsolete.

Thank you.

I posted this question before, and it got escalated, but there wasn't a resolution or fix suggested. I am hoping with more crash reports I can get some help finding a solution! Firefox is now crashing routinely - as in, many times each day. I am at my wits end! It's not profile-related as I sync my browser profiles and have no issues on my other computer. I did a clean install, and the crash frequently slowed for a while, but now I'm back to tearing my hair out. Please help!

Here are the recent crash reports: bp-fdc51734-9975-4a67-a33f-348cb0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-b39dd934-e7ae-4f8b-80f7-1123d0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-cdead43d-7977-4425-95b7-e589d0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-7a93ee79-f638-4e30-b3bf-f66d90210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-c16b3c85-3a20-4923-8ae7-4b72b0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-765b10f5-9988-4955-804f-175a90210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-db61262c-686c-4a74-b141-4d4740210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-3e3e63df-bb83-40f2-9058-b3b9c0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-d917cb17-4011-485f-974f-303880210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-7831bfb3-dd19-43fb-b222-57c8b0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-653aee9f-1e77-4150-be7e-26a940210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-8a89c943-4384-4b36-b30e-5f3d80210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-c0a188b3-66e6-4530-8193-433840210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-afca439c-82b6-446e-bb53-9b52f0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-a0f8dc37-5685-4b98-901d-dd2850210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-9d78a008-f795-4447-b5a0-49f270210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-67a74ec3-cf4e-4e4c-9378-a06060210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-efb8faac-8570-4aaf-8e8a-1494c0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-03e450d7-37a2-469c-b71d-ef8ed0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-4d2a1325-5742-47e0-8d65-2ca220210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-667d292b-3d39-48c4-824d-54de60210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-c716da51-24d7-48f4-8b2e-c1fbd0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-94f1c241-8f4f-4cfd-95e9-cf76d0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-9dd81788-bd24-4295-854c-487270210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-5ca07018-55c1-48df-9936-d13dc0210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View bp-c00e9ba3-9fb3-46e0-873b-a2d150210517 5/16/21, 6:48 PM View

I kept getting the "A copy of Firefox is already open" error, so I deleted one of the two profiles that I found. Apparently I chose the wrong one, and now all of my bookmarks are gone. I DID click something that said NOT to remove all my information (bookmarks, etc) so there must be a way to get it back, but how? I really only care about the bookmarks.

Highlights only shows bookmarks added from Firefox, not those imported from an html file. There is no obvious way to fix this inconvenient behavior and no clear solution here or in other forums.

Moving the bookmarks to different locations in bookmark library has no effect. Obviously, there must be some setting or code that causes this and it should not be the default.

As a nontechnical user I am limited in my ability to find and fix the problem. But from a logical standpoint those highlights are populated from somewhere. Being able to change that location or move the imported bookmarks there should not be an easter-egg hunt.

This seems to be an ongoing and unaddressed issue. It probably persists because, while annoying, after failed attempts to resolve or get the community to address the issue, it becomes easier to just re-add the bookmarks.

As someone giving the browser a shot after deciding Opera was basically adware. This annoyance is a fairly disheartening switching cost.

Any help would be appreciated.

How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1

I'm using FF88.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6

I'm a regular participant in the Microsoft Answers Community. When replying to messages there today a space appears when I press the space bar but as soon as I type the next character the space closes & the text runs together. E.g. instead of This is a sentence the text appears as Thisisasentence. If I then go back & re-insert the spaces they are retained but that is a royal pain.

This is a new behavior as of today. I have confirmed that this does not occur when using Safari nor does it occur when replying in the Apple support community.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Hi, I have a website created through GODADDY. All of this shows OK in Firefox apart from the blogs. Just comes up with message "Posts coming soon!" Maybe in 2019 it was OK but sometime since then it happened.

With Safari & Chrome the blog page shows fine.

I have gone to Firefox history and cleared everything. Doesn't help.

I looked at Badger setting and tried to remove these, still doesn't work.

(I am also raising this with GODADDY .. it's a conversation!).

Anything else I can do?

I have been using Firefox as my browser for years to open my QVC account. Last night, while looking at my QVC account I tried backing out of the page I was on and I could no longer get back into my account. I tried using another computer and it worked fine. I also tried switching to Safari and again I could log into my account. I am using a MacBook Pro. I tried to refresh Firefox but that didn't work.

I can see the main QVC webpage but have no way to access my account or even open QVC. Firefox is working for everything else that I access.

Thanks for any help you can provide me.

Can we maybe add a show once option or similar, in my case I use Tabliss which could also be the culprit -- but it seems to me disabling this notification should be an option or even better, have it actually show once.
