I use FEBE and Profile Manager, because I have tailored FF to my small screen, and personal needs, with many add-ons.
I recently made a new profile for FF42, and used FEBE to overwrite it with my customary profile settings.
All went well until I came on here to ask a question about my Thunderbird: Halfway through asking the question FF froze, and I had to kill it in Process Explorer. When I opened it again, the first tab just said 'connecting', and the whole thing froze as soon as that came up. Clearing all my caches with CCleaner made no difference. There was no malware detected by Malwarebytes.
I opened a previous version of FF (Thank g-d for FEBE!), and tried to overwrite the stuck profile with my current settings again, but it just froze, and had to be terminated from Process Explorer.
I tried to delete the corrupt profile in Profile Manager, but that just froze as well. :/
Luckily, it didn't break Profile Manager altogether, and, after reloading it, I could make a new profile for 42, and give it my preferred FEBE profile, and am using it now. As I don't know what corrupted the first 42, I'm a bit wary that this one might break too.
The corrupt 42 is still in the list in Profile Manager, but freezes everything when I try to delete it. How can I clean it out?
Thanks for any ideas as to what went wrong, and any tips on clearing the corrupt profile without damaging my good ones. Have I been locked out of that profile by something changing my permissions? I would have thought that MWB would have detected any obvious mischief.
