Every time firefox updates it creates a new folder on data HDD

已張貼

I have multiple hard drives in my computer and every time Firefox updates, it creates a folder that no one has permissions to access on one of my data hard drives. I believe the folder is always named something like MSIa78b492.tmp It's such a pain to have to go into the permissions and edit them so I can delete the folder.

Why is Firefox creating these folders and how do I stop it without turning off updates?

MSIa78b492.tmp

Not something that I have ever seen Firefox create. Perchance, are you running an MSI motherboard?

How large is that tmp file? kB or mB ?? Can you read the contents of that file? Like maybe its a text file of has some readable text in it?

Have you changed the location of the Firefox Profile folders? Like to a drive other than the default location on C:/ and in the Users folders?

It's an ASUS mobo so I'm sure that's not the source. There's no MSI components in my computer. The folder is always empty. I know nothing about the profile folder so if I changed it I didn't realize it.

Where is the inaccessible folder being created? In the C:\ folder or somewhere else? Knowing where the folder is being created may help people answer your question.

Every time there's an update it creates one of those folders on E:\

I have no programs on E:\, only data like music and photos.
