Look I was receiving a 400 Bad Request error from firefox on certain pages, looking for technical information I read that problem was probably that some files may get corrupted and the best thing to do is to create a new profile and import my old profile info into my new one, all of this using the ProfileManager app. from Firefox.

I read some pages on the subject and created a new profile called, then I wanted to use a different name for the profile and different folder so I decided to delete this newly created profile. Notice I didn't transfer any files or info from the old one to the new one yet.

So I used the delete profile feature on ProfileManager and when asked I choose to delete files, I repeat I only selected the newly created profile for selection didn't touch my 'default' profile where all my info was supposed to be still.

Then I tried to open firefox using my default (old) profile I get a message saying: Firefox cannot open default profile because it's in use. To continue either close the firefox instance or choose a different profile.

Looking at the profiles folder it seems the ProfileManager also deleted the folder and archives on my default profile folder and I never choose this option I only tried to delete the newly created profile.

However ProfileManager is still listing the default profile because the profile.ini file still has the following entrance:

7ckk3nl1.default

Which is the one of my default (old) profile.

I think I'm screwed however wonder if there is a way in which I can recover my old (default) profile which I never intended to delete.

I'm working on a Windows XP platform.

Thanks in advance.

This happened

Just once or twice
