Unidentified Profile

Pridané

Hello,

I was recently trying to create a new profile when I saw that there was an extra one there besides the default one. This was the name:

Profile: default-1559102909176

I didn't make this. I was wondering if anyone has came across this, or if I was potentially hacked and someone was spying on me. Thanks for the help.

Hi lucicastelli, it is a weird profile name, but very possibly innocent.

If you ever used the Refresh feature (sometimes called a tune-up), what Firefox will do is move your old profile to the desktop inside an Old Firefox Data folder, and create a new profile. The new profile name is based on the old one with a timestamp added. So my interpretation of this --

Profile: default-1559102909176

-- is that the Refresh feature ran in a profile named default on May 29, 2019 at 4:08:29.176 AM (GMT time), or May 28, 2019 9:08:29.176 PM in Pacific time (my time). I used this converter to turn that timestamp into a date: https://www.epochconverter.com/

So I don't think this profile name is evidence of any hacking or spying if that sounds like something that happened while you were using Firefox.

Note that you get a profile name with two timestamps if you refresh a profile that already has a timestamp.

Note that you can easily use the Web Console or Browser Console to convert such a timestamp to a date.
