Hello,

since yesterday after closing FF to restart, I encountered a problem. Everytime, when I try to open FF, it says that the profile isn´t available or not accessible.

I tried already to rename in /library/Application Support/Firefox, Profiles.ini -> Profiles.iniOLD and the folder Profiles -> ProfilesOLD.

As well I tried to call the Profile Manager from terminal using the below commands, since FF isn´t open. /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -ProfileManager

No matter, whether I rename the profile.ini or try to call the profile manager. Each time I get the same warning, that the profile isn´t available.

Since I tried every possible solution, which I could find on the help pages, I hope to find help from the community.

best regards Corey

As with others I can't find my old profile. I renamed it long ago as my primary profile and have updated firefox many times since. On Sat 8/14 I updated Sahara and my profile won't reload, instead I'm getting a window claiming the profile is too old. I've been through and through the FAQs and am not enough of a successful user to get to the right folder to find a usable profile with my data still in tact. about:profiles, where I usually go now had 43 profiles in it including my previously renamed profile but that doesn't help. I refreshed ff without success. I tried to find help in the many profiles help pages that said click on this, copy this, click on the profile tab, go up one level and turn left and you lost me. Can anybody help me find my usable profile and simply explain how do I re-initiate it? Thanks.

How do I get Firefox to recognize the profile that is in my Library on a Mac? I didn't touch it; did nothing to it, but when I tried to open Firefox it suddenly was missing. And your Help system HAS WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION IT SO AS TO BE NOTHING BUT CONFUSING. I AM NOT A CODE JOCK OR A WEB DEVELOPER OR SOMETHING. END RESULT: YOUR HELP SYSTEM IS USELESS!!!!!!!! I even tried deleting my current Firefox and downloading a fresh app. SAME THING! Please answer back with a REAL person, not some canned menu of HUNDREDS OF OPTIONS. Or, I will simply not touch anything from Mozilla again. Now that is SIMPLICITY!!!!

The feedback page is useless and I don't see any way to contact Mozilla so this will probably go unviewed and be more of a rant but Firefox absolutely needs a much better profile management and back system. Particularly there should be a mandatory step to backup a current profile before updating. Today I updated Firefox not by choice, for some reason my PC decided that a single click was a double click. So the latest version created a brand new profile I assume because I already had Firefox open. I am beyond rage right now because I just spent the last half hour trying to find my correct profile in my user data because for some insane reason Firefox decided to create two new profiles.

I manually backed up my profile data but it's incredibly stupid that A) the profile naming is gibberish and B) I had to do that in the first place.8

I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

My laptop died - but have FULL back up on ACRONIS cloud ... I want to find & restore my Firefox BOOKMARKS/ favorites etc. FIREFOX creates a PROFILE that contains all the data... BUT its hard to find!!??

I know location is USERname>AppData> Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox> PROFILES

BUT ... on my NEW Laptop when I go down through C:Drive hierarchy I cant see "AppData" If I search I can find ... BUT I cant actually locate via USER NAME.... Is this to do with HIDDEN FILES???

So when I go to my CLOUD BACKup I have the same problem. I can search & see ...but cant find in the hierarchy so I can recover those files & re-install on my new laptop... Any ideas where these hidden files are located?

Any ideas?

Thx for any help Cheers Keith

I have searched every support post that has anything remotely to do with my problem. I have tried booting in safe mode, downloading Firefox ESR and performing folder acrobatics with key3 and key4 files, I have disabled my anti-virus software. To no avail.

This morning, I was forced to log back in to my Firefox Browser "due to security reasons" and when I did all of my logins and passwords were gone. if I go to about:protections and scroll to the bottom of the page, Firefox Lockwise tells me that I have 158 passwords saved securely. But if I go to Logins & Passwords, there are only the 5 passwords that I have saved today since the issue began.

I NEED HELP!!!!!

Alright, I use Firefox like normal, but sometime today it stopped working, I get "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" error, I looked it up using safari, followed every possible interpretation of the instructions to no avail, I deleted the profiles folder and file, in both cache, and application support, on both my user folder and global HDD folder, no fix whatsoever, I don't know why this isn't working (yes I checked the hidden files, I searched my entire HDD and found no results for anything remotely named "Profile"/"Profiles" and I don't know what else to say.

I have checked: Application support (on every user) & Cache (on every user)

I don't know what's up, I also reinstalled Firefox after deleting everything related to it and I just don't know.

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.
