How do I delete "Old Firefox Data" folder that somehow found it's way to my desktop?

I restored Firefox, which left a folder named "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop.

How do I delete it? I can't!

Even if I remove the "read only" property and remove the "deny delete" setting, the damn thing won't go away!

How.Do.I.Kill.The.Folder???

I don't seem to remember Chrome or even Edge making the decision to clutter my Desktop indefinitely for no reason at all...

I have not heard of this problem. Have you tried doing a normal shutdown and restart of Windows in case there's a temporary file lock on it?

Yes. several times. I tried booting in safe mode and using del /f from the command prompt as well.

That thing isn't going anywhere.

Every time I try changing the attributes of the folder, they reset immediately.

Next thing I'm trying is installing a VM Linux OS with shared file manager to get Linux to do what Windows apparently isn't allowed to: Delete the "Old Firefox Data" folder.

This folder was just created today by running a normal Firefox Refresh? You could file a bug and see whether the developers have any questions about the folder that help sort out what caused it:

No. That folder was created two weeks ago when I did a Firefox Refresh. And I haven't been able to delete it since.

Did you get an error message as to why?

Note that Windows shows a green block in the Read-only box for folders, but not a check-mark. Only a check mark in the Read-only box means that a folder or file is Read-only. Windows doesn't check all the files in a folder, so instead displays a green block to indicate that it is not sure.
