Hello,

I am trying to remove a profile from Firefox and this message is above the profile I want to delete.

This profile is in use in another application and it cannot be deleted.

I have searched the Mozilla support site and can't figure out what application is using that profile.

I'm using: Macbook Pro Mac OS Sonoma 14.0 Firefox v 126.0 (64-bit)

Please help! Thank you! Jordan

What reason do you have for removing this profile like you had a problem with it and created a new profile ?

It looks that the profile is (still) locked for some reason.

You can remove this profile manually from the hard drive if you can't unlock this profile and afterward cleanup profiles.ini via about:profiles.

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder. Primary location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>

Secondary location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>
