Firefox had been crashing for weeks or months. My son turns off computer without closing the windows. (wondering if this is bad practice and/or related to current problem) Now we get error message that Firefox can't find profile. I find profile by copy pasting location in start menu but get lost after that step. I want to try refresh but can't find a way to do it from explorer browser.

If a program is not properly closed, there could be issues up to corrupt files or lost data. Tell him it he can't take care of the computer, you will take it from him. A computer can be so damaged, you would have to take it to a tech. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I went back and tried again. I think I created a new profile. Mozilla opens now with no memory. Maybe this will fix the problem.

Your user information is still there, but in the old profile.

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? If not, you will have to find the old one.
