A Specific Profile Name Triggers a Problem w/Firefox Accounts
When I create a profile with a name and then open that profile, the first thing I do is log in to Firefox Accounts if I need to. The problem is, if I use the name I want to use, I get what you see attached. Why is this happening?

This happens right after I create the profile. Firefox does not block cookies and local storage by default.

Do you mean the profile name that you create in the Profile Manager (about:profiles)? I don't know why that would make any difference, unless it is creating a problem with accessing files in your profile folder for some reason. Have you noticed a pattern as to which characters create the problem?
Whether I create it through the profile manager within the browser or at startup by executing `firefox -P`, the same happens. It doesn't have to do with a specific kind of character, but rather a very specific name. If I use a different name, regardless of the characters, this problem occurs.
What is the name you are having issues with?
That is in use by systems and programs. Try using something else.
If it's possible for you to do that, I'd appreciate that very much, as you will be much more easily noticed than if I sign up and file the bug.
