We are having some problems with custom profile locations on windows 7
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -Profile "U:\Firefox\Profile"
We use the above command to launch firefox. The u drive is a drive that is ALWAYS available for all users. This drive is redirected to the home folder of the user. To sync these folders we use Offline files.
During our testing fase we had no problems at all with this method. But in the last week we receive more and more people complaining that firefox hangs. (Read: no error specific error just stops responding and windows asks to close firefox) In my troubleshooting quest i found that as long as i don't use internet ( so not using our proxy server squid) it all works. But from the moment i try using for example google, firefox stops responding.
The tricky part is that sometimes it happens after 5 minutes, couple of hours, few days. Once it happened after 5 minutes, the only way to solve it is to delete the profile folder on the U Drive and start over.
So any help on identifying this problem is welcome. If more info is needed let me know what you need.
