hello, Hi, My profile: APPDATA \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ it often changes itself and I lose all passwords, registered add-ons. What are the causes Cordially. Bernard

Soluzione scelta

Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles.{web link} I use an add-on that makes backups of my user profile, Just In Case. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Firefox.

Every now and then, open the profile folder and create a copy of the current profile as is to another location on your hard drive. This way you will have a backup.

If you do this each day, you will not lose much data. This should be done with Firefox Closed.

Note: In case you need to restore from these backups, you may need to overwrite old or corrupted files.

My profile . . . . it often changes itself

There could be several reasons for this. We will have to narrow down the possible causes.

1) Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there?

Also openn the profile folder using your file browser and look inside.

2) It's possible the browser is resetting itself for some reason.

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.

BTW: What is changing in your profile. Does it change to something different? Does it revert back to what it was?

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.
