Resetting preferences (zoom, tabs, privacy, network, encryption, updates, where to save file downloads, etc.) is one of many procedures that can be helpful in troubleshooting Firefox problems. We'll explain two ways to do this.

Solution 1: Refresh Firefox

The refresh feature restores Firefox to its default state while saving your essential information. This solution will reset preferences but will also remove other customizations, including added extensions and themes. For more information, see Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings.

Solution 2: Delete Firefox preference files

    • Under the Application Basics section next to Profile FolderDirectory, click Open FolderShow in FinderOpen Directory. A window will open that contains your profile folder.Your profile folder will open.
    Note: If you are unable to open or use Firefox, follow the instructions in Finding your profile without opening Firefox.
