I was referred here by Intel tech support. My original thread is at: https://communities.intel.com/message/389686
My Intel wireless network settings lets me automatically launch an application whenever I connect to a certain wireless network ("Enable Intel connection settings" in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks). However, when I choose to launch Firefox, it launches without my profile.
I located the profile folder according to the directions in the topic "How can I determine which profile Firefox 3 is currently using?". I was greeted with the attached error message upon trying to open the profile folder from the "profile-less" instance of Firefox. When I launch Firefox after closing the "profile-less" instance, my profile is loaded normally.
I tried to set my auto launch application path using a command line argument, but that resulted in a message indicating that my program path was invalid.
I tried creating a batch file that started Firefox, then setting my auto launch application path to that batch file. The text of my batch file is (including quotes):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
Unfortunately, that didn't work either. I would like to know why Firefox can't load my profile using the auto launch feature, but it can load my profile when I launch it from my taskbar.
