I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

My Windows 7 OS got corrupted and had to be reinstalled so I've had to "rebuild" my laptop. I don't recall ever backing up my many Firefox bookmarks using a Firefox tool. My online backup is Mozy and I've successfully restored data files. I see a folder among the Mozy backup files with this path: F:\mozyLocalBackup\betsyb-laptop\C\Users\betsyb\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\gy6v6xhf.default-1408376452741. It contains files with names like logins.json and places.sqlite. Can I use any of this to restore bookmarks and other things that were stored in my Firefox profile? If not, any other suggestions? Thanks!

Hi,

We have a computer that gets shared between a few people but it uses a generic logon. However, individual people may want to use Firefox to check the email and things but don't want other people to get into their own stuff.

I know that I can create a profile for each person but I don't seem to see any way to set a password on the profile. Is there any way to do that?

Thanks!

My startup disk was over capacity so I force quit out of all of my running applications and shut down my computer. When I started it back up I emptied some files to make a bit of room. WHen I then opened FIrefox, a blank window opened with no bookmarks, toolbar and my homepage did not open. I checked preferences, and the homepage info is there, but for some reason I cannot get the homepage to open upon starting Firefox, or any of my bookmarks. I tried restoring bookmarks from backups, but I get an error message that says that FIrefox can't not open the files.

I have a my Firefox profile and a copy of its folder. After a certain amount of time launching Firefox with this profile, the history and cookies are missing in the browser, as well as some other preferences and data. What I do is that I close Firefox, delete the profile folder, duplicate the copy to a new copy and rename the original copy to match the profile folder name. The next time I launch Firefox history and cookies are here again. Then after 3 or 4 launches, they've disappeared again, so here I go again with the copies.

I don't know what causes the profile folder not to work after a few launches. One time the history was there again even after rebooting the computer, most of the time it disappears after a few hours (after a few relaunches of Firefox).

The profile originally became corrupted when I performed a cold shutdown of my computer while Firefox was open. I remember that when I booted again, my profile was well; it was at the next Firefox launch that the data was missing. I opened the sqlite files with the sqlite3 command line and they looked clean. Next time I launched Firefox the data was available again. I made a copy of the folder in case of, and there I am with the merry-go-round of copies.

So the problem is the following: I experienced Firefox to eat up all my ram (I have 4Gb + 5Gb swap in linux) since a year ago. After 1 hour it started to consume also the swap and I needed to kill firefox and restart it. That was okay. But today, I cannot even start to surf on internet because it completely use my RAM and swap. If I follow what happens with htop, I see that the RAM usage oscillates violently from 2Gb on and as soon as it starts to use the swap the computer almost freeze because it start to write on disk.

This also happens in --safe-mode

Now i started another profile, and it works fine. But how can I fix my old profile? How can I find what happens? (I don't want to repeat everything with my new profile in a couple of months)

Thanks in advance for any suggestion!

I transferred all files, including key3.db and logins.json to a new computer. Everything looks just like it did on the old one, except the saved logins are missing. The Exceptions-Saved Logins is filled with the previous data, but no Saved Logins.

This process worked fine on another such transfer I recently did.

Now I have tried uninstalling firefox. and then downloading and installing a new version.....IT STILL WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE IT CANNOT FIND MY PROFILE, BECAUSE MY PROFILE HAS BEEN DELETED.
