The title is pretty much self explanatory. Whenever I reboot my computer (Ubuntu 16.04), firefox loses ALL of its data. Any persistent cookies are removed, any customizations I make to the title bar are removed, my extensions are gone, and I have to sign into sync again. It's like a completely fresh installation.

Thanks for your help!

This should be an easy fix because all other browsers and Firefox used to do this. When Firefox is restarted the pages do not reload they just display history. I have to hit the reload current page button to get the new data. This has been driving me crazy for a few weeks. I thought I had if fixed a couple of times but only a couple of pages would reload and now it is all history again.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted all profiles, viewed and attempted every suggestion that was found via search engine. Firefox will only start with -P option and creation of new profile. Once closed, it will not open again using the profile just created. Any ideas as to what type of additional troubleshooting that is available. There are no crash reports or logs generated anywhere that can be found. Running on Windows 7 Professional.

Firefox has opened successfully for years. Today, I double clicked on the icon, and it will not launch. I uninstalled and reinstalled it two three times and no luck. So I then tried performing the profile creation and got the following result.

Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable. [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIToolkitProfileService.createProfile]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://mozapps/content/profile/createProfileWizard.js :: onFinish :: line 181" data: no]

Not sure how to solve this.

I tried starting the Firefox browser multiple times by clicking both the shortcut icon and the file. After nothing happened, i opened the task manager and stopped the browser's process(What even causes this to happen?), but when i tried to start the browser again, it just did the same thing: it started a process on the task manager, but it didn't start. No matter how many times i stopped the process, the same thing would happen. I tried creating a new profile, and it worked, but i wanted to test it by closing it and opening it again, and it didn't work. Then i tried creating a third profile, but for some reason it didn't work that time, and even if it did, it'd be pretty annoying to have to create a new profile everytime i wanted to use the internet. I use Windows 10, if it makes any difference. Sorry for the long text and bad english.

I work in IT and multiple users are having this same issue. It seems to have started at the same time about a week ago. When clicking on Firefox, no window opens and the cursor begins to rapidly flicker or spin. There is no error message given. When checking Task Manager, there are multiple instances of Firefox running. Trying to "End Task" on each instance proves futile because it seems that they are constantly refreshing (which is probably why the cursor flickers). Trying to run the command "taskkill /f /im /firefox.exe" sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, even in Administrative mode. The only sure fire ways to get the cursor to stop flickering and/or close the program is to restart the machine or uninstall Firefox. However, if Firefox is clicked on again after restarting, it goes back to flickering and no window ever opens.

Things I've tried:

1. Using "End Task" in Task Manager

2. Running CMD and using taskkill /f /im /firefox.exe multiple times.

3. Restarting the machine.

4. Clearing ALL temp files from the machine.

5. Uninstalling and Reinstalling Firefox

6. Uninstalling, deleting Mozilla folders from Program Files, Program Files (x86), and Reinstalling

7. Checking to make sure Firefox is not blocked by the firewall or anti-virus.

8. Uninstalling, deleting Mozilla folders from Program Files and Program Files (x86), Deleting Profile data from AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox, then Reinstalling

Nothing seems to be working. Any ideas?

Hi all,

I rely heavily on FireFox (primarily for the multiple profiles and extensions it provides), so deperately trying to solve a problem I'm having. When I launch Firefox on my Mac (10.12.6 - Sierra), I immediately receive an error: "Firefox quit unexpectedly."

I've tried a number of different approaches to resolve including:

1) Starting Firefox in safe mode (by holding down the opt key on launch) - same error occurs 2) Removing Firefox from the Applications folder, and removing Firefox folder from the Application Support folder under the Library (which also removes all my profiles). Then reinstalled Firefox 57. - same error occurs 3) Tried installing older version of Firefox - version 56.0.2 (after removing previous installation as per step 2 above) - same error occurs 4) Tried a machine restart (very early on) - same error occurs.

I've run out of ideas, and hoping someone may be able to shed some light or suggest further troubleshooting options? Desperate to get it working again!

Cheers, Mark

I tried deleting all firefox files, restarted and reinstalled and still get the same error message. I had Sophos Home installed and removed that and it still did not fix the problem.

Firefox always immediately crashes on startup, giving a message popup box saying: "We're Sorry Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts. To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report." It then crashes again if I select Restart Firefox, and crashes even if I quit and restart it later.

I have uninstalled Mozilla multiple times with a clean removal and redownloaded and reinstalled and the same thing happens. Also persists even with numerous restarts between removal and reinstallation. Crash ID: bp-fc0e63cc-13b5-4657-995f-8dfa02150919 is one of these crashes.

Firefox used to work all the time every day; this started 4 days ago--no new installs of anything else.

Tried refresh, reinstall firefox, no anti-virus program, actually I have no programs, no plugins, no extensions. Added firefox to the windows firewall allowed through list (which I never did with my vista machine) Brand new i5 quad core 3.6khz computer with windows 8.1 All drivers are up to date. It did take 2 weeks to get windows 8.1 finally installed without locking up and having to reinstall for the fifteenth time by disabling all of Microsoft's built in spyware. It's been semi stable for 2 days now. When I install kaspersky av. it adds another couple minutes to firefox launch.

I was really excited about my new suppose to be faster computer but my 10 year old Q6600 2.4khz with vista is way faster and easier to use.  I know I can't be the only one in the world to have this problem.  I've been all over the internet and I see all the problems people are having with windows 8.1. I've got invitation to upgrade to windows 10 but that just locks up the computer again.  Someone, anyone please HELP!

Hi!

After update to 56.0, I was getting multiple following messages when starting and/or using Firefox. Eventually, all my bookmarks loaded without problem, but the error windows appeared consistently:


"Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."


Attempted solutions (with no success):

 - Delete %appdata%/Mozilla/Firefox/profiles.ini file
 - Delete the whole %appdata%/Mozilla/Firefox folder
 - Re-install firefox
 - Delete the %appdata%/Mozilla folder, delete C:\ProgramFiles\Mozilla Firefox folder and re-install
 - Remove old profile and add new one using "firefox.exe -P"
 - Repeat some of the above 5x

Working solution: Reboot

 - I noticed Kaspersky antivirus was demanding restart after its own update.
 - Firefox error said "inacsessible", and antivirus frequently locks out our files during development.
 - Kaspersky forces its plugins into browsers, so I gave restarting it a try.
 - The Firefox works after reboot with no errors even with the original (restored) contents of the %appdata%/Mozilla folder.

Suspected cause of the problem:

 - The Kaspersky automatically installs its extension into browsers (even after manually removing or disabling them). 
 - I suspect that the updates/installs somehow conflicted.

EDIT: Reformatting for better readability. Added missing info into "attempted" solutions.
