I'm getting Profile Missing: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I don't have a caches folder I can remove the contents of the application support folder and nothing changes.

When I go to open the profile manager I get:

MyName$ /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I tried running Disk Utility but it froze the machine as it's a time machine disk and that slows it down immeasurably.

What's my next option?

Hello I have been a Firefoxan since the year 2004. I really admired what Mozilla did to compete in the browser market. Recently, Firefox not longer accepted to "Submit feedback" via the browser menu. I wanted to complain about a couple of things but it took a lot of time for me to reach here. Believe me Mozilla, this is not a good time to stop listening to users and refuse to receive complains.

It is high time for me to move to another browser after 16 years.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

When version 84 was installed(automatically) it took out everything in my FF, including book marks and reverted to a new "install". Now when I go to "options" there is a notice that indicates: "Your browser is being managed by your organization." How do I rectify this situation and why did ver 84 clean out my complete installation?

operating system- OSx High Sierra

Download and install Firefox. Open and use it, getting a couple add ons, and bookmarking some pages. everything seems fine and works fine. Shut down my Mac and go to use it next time, Firefox should still be ready to go. Only, when Firefox has closed somehow and I need have to reopen it, it needs me to go through the set up and install again. Once this is done and I can use Firefox again, Ive lost all my history, add- ons, opened tabs, bookmarks. This has happened about 4 times now since I wiped my hard drive and switched my Mac back to OSx. I never close out Firefox and usually just put my computer to 'sleep'. Anyone know whats happening?

I am setting up Firefox on a new PC... I am running the latest version of Firefox (I think) version 84.0. I exported my logins on my old PC to a .csv file with no problem. Now, I'm trying get Firefox to load that file. I've seen help responses that talk about getting to a submenu in the Login/Password section, but those responses indicate that one of the choices should be "Import from a file". But I'm not seeing that choice. I see "Import from another browser" in that menu, but I don't see "Import from a file"... any suggestions?

bold text Hello,

        no more Firefox since yesterday :-(
        
        Strange Problem. Suddenly no link functioned (Sound "pupup") Firefox freezes :-( Close and ... Firefox 
        didn't start :-( Boot ... same reaction!
        
        Saving Firefox-Profile and deinstall/install with newest install from Mozilla! And what happened?
        
        Install creates "c:\program files\mozilla firefox", ignoring my system 64-bit!? No profile under 
       "c:\users\&user\appdata\roaming\mozilla"! Icon on desktop.
        
        How can I install Firefox again? Installing without virusscanner and firewall, all tested!
        
        In the moment on the way with Chrome ...
        
        All the best from Dortmund and stay healthy!

Good Afternoon:

 I am trying to log into Firefox and unfortunately, it looks like it is blocked in Windows 10. I have read the article on how to make Firefox my default browser but none of the options applies to my problems. Options and General, etc do not appear in the window. Do I have to change using the Edge browser? Google Chrome? How exactly do I change this? 

Thank you for your help

FF 84 (latest version) seems to have a bug which prevents saving multiple images at once. I decided to go back to version 82. I did NOT install the maintenance service (which would handle updates in background). First time I went to the "about" popup to check the version. Big mistake: by default "automatically install updates" is checked in settings, so next time I run FF version 84 will be installed and run instead of 82. OK, no problem, I don't go check in the "about" popup, but go to settings first to disable automatic updates. Now under updates "automatically install updates" is the default, and indeed, just opening settings causes FF to begin downloading the update. There is a way out: you can discard the update.

I understand Mozilla would recommend to update to the latest version, but what you have to do and consider not to is way worse than Microsoft ever was. I would suggest to at least make "check for updates but let you choose to install them" the default. The way it is now is not what I would call user-friendly.

I want to move my Firefox profile to a new phone manually, without using any cloud storage. Basically my questions are: 1) Can I just copy the profile folder to the same location on the new phone? 2) Where is the profile location?

I tried five or six different search queries, but couldn't find a guide on this.
