I am on a macbook pro. I have deleted app and at, reinstalled, still get this error:Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I rename the Firefox folder /Library/Application Support/Firefox and still I get this error: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

In terminal I tried ot create a new profile using: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P but receive this error in terminal: Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory and this error pops up in Freifox: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

After firefox update cannot have program automatically open to right website

Up to before v.43, our emergency alert program would open Firefox at http://cad.chp.ca.gov. Now Firefox opens to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/43.0.1/firstrun/learnmore/, and disappears within a few seconds. Accepting "Try the new private browsing" does not solve the problem.

What has changed so we can modify our code?

Thank you for help.

FF 58.0.2 64-bit Windows 7 64-bit

My home page is

http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/on-118_metric_e.html

Frequently, when I open FF, I get the following error:

"Page Not Found (HTTP 404)

The page requested could not be found at this location.

If you navigated using a bookmark, we suggest you delete it or update the bookmark pointing to this site"

However, when I highlight the url in the address box, copy it, then paste it into a new tab, the page opens. The address is exactly the same in the new tab as in the one giving the error message.

I've scanned for malware, rootkits, viruses - all for nothing.

I've uninstalled and re-installed FF - no change.

Can anyone advise what else I can do, please?

Downloaded the latest version of Firefox and installed it on my newly built Win 7 64 Bit workstation. When I click the Firefox shortcut, absolutely nothing happens. No processes show up in TaskManager, nothing. Have Googled the issue and tried many recommended fixes to no avail. At a loss as to how to resolve, Firefox is unusable at this point.

I tried starting the Firefox browser multiple times by clicking both the shortcut icon and the file. After nothing happened, i opened the task manager and stopped the browser's process(What even causes this to happen?), but when i tried to start the browser again, it just did the same thing: it started a process on the task manager, but it didn't start. No matter how many times i stopped the process, the same thing would happen. I tried creating a new profile, and it worked, but i wanted to test it by closing it and opening it again, and it didn't work. Then i tried creating a third profile, but for some reason it didn't work that time, and even if it did, it'd be pretty annoying to have to create a new profile everytime i wanted to use the internet. I use Windows 10, if it makes any difference. Sorry for the long text and bad english.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted all profiles, viewed and attempted every suggestion that was found via search engine. Firefox will only start with -P option and creation of new profile. Once closed, it will not open again using the profile just created. Any ideas as to what type of additional troubleshooting that is available. There are no crash reports or logs generated anywhere that can be found. Running on Windows 7 Professional.

Firefox suddenly stopped working today. When I open it, it tells me that it's already open (which it isn't) and that it can't find or load my profile. If I go directly to profiles and create a new one, I can open it, but all my bookmarks are gone. And then if I close and try to reopen it, the same thing happens--I can't open it and get the same error message.

One thing I figured out is that the profile can’t be read only, and I discovered that mine was (why I don't know), but when I try to uncheck read only, it instantly reverts back to read only, which is weird.

I’ve tried reinstalling Firefox several times, but it’s always the same, even with a brand-new installation, I can’t open it and get the same error message. What can I do if reinstalling doesn’t even work?

The title is pretty much self explanatory. Whenever I reboot my computer (Ubuntu 16.04), firefox loses ALL of its data. Any persistent cookies are removed, any customizations I make to the title bar are removed, my extensions are gone, and I have to sign into sync again. It's like a completely fresh installation.

Thanks for your help!

Just got my new Macbook 12in 2015 and migrated all my files, but no apps. So I reinstalled Firefox for Mac on this new laptop thru Safari. It opened right up and had all of my info saved - history, bkmarks, etc - which was great. But I can only get it to open new Tabs. It will not open up a New Window from the file menu, or the shortcut.

I reinstalled another dmg of Firefox thru Safari, but now the Preferences also won't open. Nor New Windows again.

I've been using Firefox for years and don't know how to migrate all my info from FF into Safari to be able to use New Windows in that program. Please help : ) Carolyn

I've tried deleting the firefox profile folders and launching the application. Still get the same error message. I tried deleting all firefox files, restarted and reinstalled and still get the same error message. I had Sophos Home installed and removed that and it still did not fix the problem. Also when i try to launch the profile manager via terminal it still just gives me the profile error message. This is extremely annoying.

Tried refresh, reinstall firefox, no anti-virus program, actually I have no programs, no plugins, no extensions. Added firefox to the windows firewall allowed through list (which I never did with my vista machine) Brand new i5 quad core 3.6khz computer with windows 8.1 All drivers are up to date. It did take 2 weeks to get windows 8.1 finally installed without locking up and having to reinstall for the fifteenth time by disabling all of Microsoft's built in spyware. It's been semi stable for 2 days now. When I install kaspersky av. it adds another couple minutes to firefox launch.

I was really excited about my new suppose to be faster computer but my 10 year old Q6600 2.4khz with vista is way faster and easier to use.  I know I can't be the only one in the world to have this problem.  I've been all over the internet and I see all the problems people are having with windows 8.1. I've got invitation to upgrade to windows 10 but that just locks up the computer again.  Someone, anyone please HELP!
