I have searched every support post that has anything remotely to do with my problem. I have tried booting in safe mode, downloading Firefox ESR and performing folder acrobatics with key3 and key4 files, I have disabled my anti-virus software. To no avail.

This morning, I was forced to log back in to my Firefox Browser "due to security reasons" and when I did all of my logins and passwords were gone. if I go to about:protections and scroll to the bottom of the page, Firefox Lockwise tells me that I have 158 passwords saved securely. But if I go to Logins & Passwords, there are only the 5 passwords that I have saved today since the issue began.

I NEED HELP!!!!!

I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

I had to reinstall my OS (linuxmint - debian edition - 201403). I left /home intact. After the process, I checked the profile -- nothing was changed. So I ran Firefox. But, my bookmarks didn't load (only the few that come with a new install). It didn't load the preferences either. I tried some tricks to get it to load my profile (i.e. create a new profile and copy the contents, Help>Troubleshooting Information -- Reset). Still no joy. I even tried running in a shell with -P <profile> for both the original and new profiles. Still no bookmarks (or anything from my original profile).

Also, on the Help>Troubleshooting Information page, I click 'open directory' and see my original profile.

What's wrong, and how do I fix it?

I suddenly started getting the error "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.". I followed the directions for removing the .ini file (I'm on Mac OS High Sierra). But the problem didn't go away.

I tried using the Firefox Profile Manager. It does launch the profile manager window where there were no profiles. I created a new profile. It then opened Firefox. I could use it ok. But then I closed Firefox and re-opened it and got the error again.

Here is what shows up in my console window when I run the profile manager:

MacBook-Pro-2:me$ sudo /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P MacBook-Pro-2:me$ 2017-11-30 14:27:41.594 plugin-container[8508:15019641] *** CFMessagePort: bootstrap_register(): failed 1100 (0x44c) 'Permission denied', port = 0xb943, name = 'com.apple.tsm.portname' See /usr/include/servers/bootstrap_defs.h for the error codes. 2017-11-30 14:27:57.203 plugin-container[8524:15021634] *** CFMessagePort: bootstrap_register(): failed 1100 (0x44c) 'Permission denied', port = 0xae3f, name = 'com.apple.tsm.portname' See /usr/include/servers/bootstrap_defs.h for the error codes. 2017-11-30 14:28:11.580 plugin-container[8533:15023234] *** CFMessagePort: bootstrap_register(): failed 1100 (0x44c) 'Permission denied', port = 0xc23f, name = 'com.apple.tsm.portname' See /usr/include/servers/bootstrap_defs.h for the error codes.

I can't get this browser to work at all! Is there a way to completely uninstall and start over?

After recent Windows or Firefox update, which was quoted to take a few minutes, but lasted all day So I turned off computer at night, in morning, I was able to log in, but screen was blank Took computer to repair shop, who said it was working OK, but when switched on it automatically logged me in as administer After many attempts, I managed to swap user to my own login, only to find lost of apps missing Plus Firefox was missing I had to reinstall, but that meant No bookmarks and No passwords saved

Is there any way I can regain those lost bookmarks and add them to the new updated version of Firefox? As to the saved passwords, I will need to replace them all with new passwords, unless they can be regained too?

-- I was using firefox all the time until recently; a week and a half or so ago I was doing my school work using firefox when it crashed. I brought it back up and it crashed again in about 10 minutes and then since then it will NOT work at all. I tried to bring it up and an error message of "missing profile" stating: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." -- (which doesn't make sense to me I never had one to begin with?)... I have removed firefox completely from my device and reinstalled it 3 times and it still does the same thing. I have tried troubleshooting it and it does work I have tried to change it to earlier versions.... nothing. I'm not certain what to do. My laptop is a Lenovo Flex 3 windows 10 OS.

Thank you all in advance or you help. Hopefully it can be figured out.

I want FF back in the same location that it was. (The files on Drive F are all still in place.) Also, I want to keep my old Profile and Add-Ons, etc.

I have deleted all reference to mozilla in user>appdata and the same happens. Tried running "firefox -p", with the same resulting message. Back to Opera?

I gave up on Firefox due to its insistence that I could not stop it forcing updates on me no matter what settings I used in options as well as about: . I went back to IE9. Yes 9, as Microsoft couldn't repair Windows 7 to get a later version installed. Anyhow, after my motherboard became erratic and the replacement meant Win 7 no longer worked at all, I decided it was time to 'upgrade' to Win 10. After a complete reinstall of my software from scratch I realised just how bad Edge is and thought I might see how Firefox was holding up. I thought the sync could be useful and was getting on with it until 68.0.1! Since updating to this version automatically (the settings in options still do not work), it appears it is updating/resetting itself after every reboot. It restores the defaults and behaves as if it has just updated each time. Also after doing this for five times it appears to have broken ADBlock which advises it cannot work any more. I have had to uninstall it to get the tab to stop. So, as my questions were never answered previously, I'll ask again: 1. How do I get Firefox to stop updating itself? Options 'check for updates but let you choose when to install them' clearly still doesn't work as it updates regardless. 2. How do I get to keep my preferences. Having to go through them all each time Firefox updates is a pain. Surely it cannot be too much to create an ini file? 3. How do I convince Firefox not to keep installing version 68.0.1 over itself? 4. As Adblock no longer works in this version (I'm sure they are pleased with this result), what good alternatives are there?

Hello, I'm having problem with Firefox on one laptop. All computers in company are connected to domain (Active Directory), and are using roaming profiles, to roam user profiles within computers in company. Laptops are using roaming profiles + offline files (so users can access their files, when not connected to company network). The problem occurs when user is connected to company network and is using Firefox, then hibernate computer (it doesn't matter if Firefox is on/off) and run computer on home WiFI network (or with no network) - Firefox is losing all settings including history & bookmarks. The strange thing is - that on other laptops Firefox is working properly (no matter on which network user is connected). I've tried new system install + connecting laptop to domain but problem is still exist.

I recently used App Cleaner and Uninstaller to delete an extra copy of Firefox on my MacBook Pro. The duplicate application file was already named Firefox2 and I selected that along with it's service files and user profiles, etc. to be deleted. To my surprise, both copies were deleted and I had enabled the deletion to bypass the trash directory. I'm also still kicking myself for failing to make an image of my hard drive prior to the deletion. I used several 3rd party apps to try restoring the files as I'm interested in the stored passwords and the bookmarks. Not an easy task and not practical.

One of my data recovery apps found a copy of bookmarks that I had exported a while back as well as a few folders with a collection of what seems to be user application support files. I'm not sure, but I think they are profiles. There are several folders (although I'm the only user of this computer) each named with an 8-character alphanumeric name followed by the file extension of "default-" plus a 13 digit number.

Among the contents of each are numerous file, folders and subfolders with names that include: add-ons, bookmarks, cookies, extensions, logins, perfs, sesssionstore, signon, webapps, etc. Assuming that theses are the profiles, how can restore them?

In addition, I also found several folder with names such as "0120B2F92360F7C11C4B3CFAC56B25F1B8FA2303C8" containing one file with names such as "E71086F8-C7A8-4D60-9C49-7F291855FE17.01f61a19376cb7ec511b721ea5737760f85b218462". TextEdfit show mostly machine code with text based headers that start with "com.apple..." Not sure if these are useful.

Two of those files appear to be interesting:

    com.apple.backupd.filechecklist
    System.keychain-orig

I don't know if these are useful or not.

I am planning to download and install the latest version of Firefox compatible with Mac OS 10.12. What do I need to do to restore the information from these files and which files are actually relevant?

Your guidance would be greatly appreciated.

With kind regards, LChoiSF

I use Ubuntu Mate. And this morning I have to reinstall it. The folder containing my Firefox profile was in a different partition, so that it was not removed during the new installation. When installation finished I opened the Firefox profile manager and create a new profile which points at the right folder. By running Firefox from the profile manager there is no problem. By trying from the panel or from the terminal I receive the error message: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible". I checked the profiles.ini and it seems absolutely correct. Moreover even with Firefox opened, the links from Thunderbird try to open a new Firefox windows and give the error.

So the problem is the following: I experienced Firefox to eat up all my ram (I have 4Gb + 5Gb swap in linux) since a year ago. After 1 hour it started to consume also the swap and I needed to kill firefox and restart it. That was okay. But today, I cannot even start to surf on internet because it completely use my RAM and swap. If I follow what happens with htop, I see that the RAM usage oscillates violently from 2Gb on and as soon as it starts to use the swap the computer almost freeze because it start to write on disk.

This also happens in --safe-mode

Now i started another profile, and it works fine. But how can I fix my old profile? How can I find what happens? (I don't want to repeat everything with my new profile in a couple of months)

Thanks in advance for any suggestion!

I had several problems to begin with

1.I booted up my PC and tried to boot up Mozilla. The Browser asked me to refresh or go to safemode. I dont want to be in safemode so I refreshed firefox.Once it was done refreshing it opened,closed and asked again to refresh firefox. I kept doing this infinetly. 2.I decided to reinstall firefox, so I did. I also wanted my previous profile folder back so I can regain my bookmarks, passwords,tabs and extensions. It did not work. 3. So now everytime I try to open Mozilla Firefox it says "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible". I tried reinstalling again and it did not work.I wanted to try profile editor and such but I get the same error message everytime and I cannot open or fix Firefox in any way. Solutions?
