Soluzione scelta

That seems like the second profile listed in profiles.ini. Did you want to try moving the

Default=1

line from the first profile to that second one?

This error message is a problem with the profiles.ini file, see:

This file maps Firefox profiles to a location on the hard drive. You get this error message when this file exists, but the profile marked as Default=1 in the file isn't found.

If you have an existing profile then you can use the Profile Manager to create a new profile and use the Choose folder button to point to this specific profile. Otherwise you can use the Profile Manager to create a new profile.

On Windows the location used for the main profile folder that keeps your personal data is in "AppData\Roaming" (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

I found the old profile file...Default=1 is there but it's listed under Profile0. Could that be the problem?

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/3zviq6ok.default-151 6995295322 Default=1

[Profile1] Name=default-1552836835519 IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/tredj7fk.default-1552 836835519

That is the content of your current Profiles.ini file?

Default=1 is the profile Firefox will try to load at startup.

There shouldn't be a line break in those long numbers following the profile name. Those should match up exactly with the actual folder names in the Profiles folder.

Note: please turn on viewing of file extensions so we can have as precise a discussion of files as possible:

Okay, if you compare with what exists in the Profiles folder, are either of those two listed folders present?
