Files missing from desktop after deleting a user profile that was created on there.
I downloaded and installed firefox and it asked me to create a user profile, but it could not save in the default location. I chose to create the profile on the desktop as a test and that worked. However, after deleting that user profile, all of the items on my desktop were removed and cannot be located. The files are not in my trashbin and when I do a search, it says the file cannot be located. I have Windows 7.

You shouldn't create a profile and choose an existing folder.
You should always specify an empty folder and if you didn't do that then you should never remove the files when you remove such a profile because all files in it will be removed and not just the files created by Firefox.
