When I try to open Firefox I keep getting a message in a box entitled Profile Missing. Can someone help?
I recently upgraded my hard drive from the original 80gb to a MomentusXT 500gb Hardrive. I reloaded Snow Leopard, and transferred everything back onto my MacBook Pro with an Iomega external hardrive I use for back up. Everything else is working including Safari. But when I downloaded Firefox, it loads, and when clicking on the Firefox icon I get the message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." Can anyone help me with this issue?
Check that you still have the default profile as listed in the file profiles.ini as Default=1.
If profiles.ini is present, but the profile that is marked in profiles.ini as Default=1 is missing then delete profiles.ini to make Firefox create a new default profile.
This may sound like a really dumb question, but how do I find the default profile. I am not the most sophisticated user. Please make it a little simpler for me.
You can find profiles.ini here on Mac:
