Yesterday it opened normally, today it won't, as said above.

I tried renaming the Mozilla Firefox to OldFirefox, and clean install, still won't work.

When trying to open in safe mode, window open but then says : Not responding, and it jam like this.

I even tried to report my 5 latest bp- and it still wasn't conclusive.

Any answer somebody?

BTW my computer is a MacBook Pro with Windows 7 32 bits Legit Boot Camp, si maybe it does make a difference.

My Internet Explorer work, thought.

Thanks!!

For days, every time I have started Firefox, it asked whether I wanted an update. Every time I clicked Yes to update Firefox, the update failed. So I found the Mozilla site for installing the latest version of Firefox. The installation seemed to go fine, but Windows 10 now gives the following message:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I see nothing unusual in the Properties for what seems to be the Firefox executable. Of course, I can switch to GoogleChrome, but I prefer Firefox; in addition, all of my Firefox bookmarks are now gone.

Solution to these problems?

Firefox will stop responding, suddenly all of my OS (Windows 10 Pro) will simply stop, freeze, a warning will come up that the program is not responding and if I wait longer it may respond again, the CPU light that it is doing its thing on my laptop goes dead, the only way I can get to use my laptop again is by hard resetting it holding the power button. This happen multiple times a day, and only while browsing using firefox.

It is my preferred browser, but I have noticed its quality to degrade as time goes by.

Hi, I would like to create from command line by using the administrator user of a system the same firefox profile with plugin and customization for each user of the same system. I cannot use sync feature for this purpose.

I know from here edit https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...d_Line_Options https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options ~J99that the correct syntax is the following firefox -CreateProfile "JoelUser c:\internet\joelusers-moz-profile". On Linux/Ubuntu the following piece of code allows to create a profile for the sudo user


user=$(sudo logname)
firefoxProfile="/home/$user/.mozilla/firefox"
if [ ! -d "$firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile" ]; then
    rm -rf $firefoxProfile
    firefox -CreateProfile "profile $firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
        
    7z x -y ./m4v6pi7q.profile.7z
    mv ./m4v6pi7q.profile/* "$firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
    sudo chown -R $user:$user "/home/$user/.mozilla/"
    rm -rf m4v6pi7q.profile.7z m4v6pi7q.profile
fi

On Windows the following piece of code allows to create a profile for the administrator user


$ProgramsPath=${env:ProgramFiles}
$FirefoxProfile="$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\u9w6vbcj.profile"
if(-Not (Test-Path $FirefoxProfile))
{
	$LocalProfile="$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*"
	if(Test-Path $LocalProfile)
	{
		Remove-Item $LocalProfile -recurse
	}
	
	$RoamingProfile="$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*"
	if(Test-Path $RoamingProfile)
	{
		Remove-Item $RoamingProfile -recurse
		Remove-Item "$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini"
	}
	& "$ProgramsPath\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -CreateProfile "profile $FirefoxProfile"

	& "$ProgramsPath\7-Zip\7z.exe" x -y .\u9w6vbcj.profile.7z
	move .\u9w6vbcj.profile\* $FirefoxProfile -force
	Remove-Item .\u9w6vbcj.profile.7z
	Remove-Item .\u9w6vbcj.profile
}

How can I create firefox profiles from a sudo/administrator user for each user (sudo/administrator and not sudo/administrator) of the system? On Linux/Ubuntu I tried with this code


usersList=$(getent passwd | grep -vE '(nologin|false)$' | \
awk -F: -v min=`awk '/^UID_MIN/ {print $2}' /etc/login.defs` \
-v max=`awk '/^UID_MAX/ {print $2}' /etc/login.defs` \
'{if(($3 >= min)&&($3 <= max)) print $1}' | \
sort -u)

for systemUser in $usersList; do
    echo $systemUser

    firefoxProfile="/home/$systemUser/.mozilla/firefox"
    firefox -CreateProfile "profile $firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
    7z x -y ./m4v6pi7q.profile.7z
    mv ./m4v6pi7q.profile/* "$firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
    chown -R $systemUser:$systemUser "/home/$systemUser/.mozilla/"
    rm -rf m4v6pi7q.profile.7z m4v6pi7q.profile
    
done

but it does not work and this is the output


sudo ./user.sh 
foo
Success: created profile 'profile /home/foo/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile' at '/home/foo/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile/prefs.js'

Why for the first two users is the directory for profile corretly set, while for the other is the directory of the user that executes the script /home/admin/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile? I'm sorry for my very long question. Thank you

I cannot close firefox unless I go into task manager to end it. I have sent 2 bug reports under this email address. I cannot open in safe mode by holding shift and clicking but was able to under the ? menu. No change in safe mode, just continuously loads.

Firefox suddenly stopped working today. When I open it, it tells me that it's already open (which it isn't) and that it can't find or load my profile. If I go directly to profiles and create a new one, I can open it, but all my bookmarks are gone. And then if I close and try to reopen it, the same thing happens--I can't open it and get the same error message.

One thing I figured out is that the profile can’t be read only, and I discovered that mine was (why I don't know), but when I try to uncheck read only, it instantly reverts back to read only, which is weird.

I’ve tried reinstalling Firefox several times, but it’s always the same, even with a brand-new installation, I can’t open it and get the same error message. What can I do if reinstalling doesn’t even work?

Firefox will not start. It claims to be already running, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I have tried creating a new user profile but when I try to open Firefox now, the "choose user profile" menu pops up. I have tried the new profile and they old one, and both give the same error message. "Firefox cannot use the profile "Default User" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

There is an entry for firefox.exe in the "details" menu of my task manager, and nowhere else. When I try to end that task, I get the following error: "the operation could not be completed - Access is denied."

Due to some troubleshooting research, I've tried deleting the parent.lock file from my profile folder, but I get this error- "the action can't be completed because the file is open in Firefox."

I tried transferring my bookmarks and preferences from Firefox to Chrome, but I got a similar error suggesting that Firefox was already open and I would have to close it first.

I have also turned off my computer and uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox multiple times.

I'd really rather not lose all of my Firefox bookmarks, add-ons, and preferences. I also prefer using Firefox to Chrome, so if anyone can help me out I'd really appreciate it. I don't know what else to try.

My PC runs Windows 10, by the way.

After following a support document on editing system registry (the document suggested a full registry export in opposition to the chosen registry key export which does no good when in my situation using Windows 'reg import' can not be done using the full registry backup) to restore functionality of my Seagate USB Backup Plus Windows10 will not boot and I fear that I am going to have to start from scratch and so I wanted to ask this question in preparation for the worst possible scenario.

I am chronically reliant upon being able to close Mozilla having faith that it will always restore my last session(s) of all open tabs and their locations successfully EVERY TIME ... now that I may have to start from scratch with my OS, I am desperate to recover my Mozilla profile and I am in great hopes, that recovering the profile will likewise have my last session data to be restored once I get Windows10 running again, because I will really be in a pickle if I lose my open tabs!

So my questions are:

1: Is it possible to recover the profile including the very important "Restore Last Session" where all open tabs of the last session exists?

2: I will be retrieving the files VIA Command Line. I would like to be certain that I am retrieving the correct file(s) from the correct file location(s). Can someone provide the Mozilla profile folder locations and names.


Thanking you in advance for your time and knowledge

So this has been happening for a bit. I have the most recent Firefox update: 46.0.1 as of 5/14/16. However, the Mozilla website says that I'm using an older version of Firefox and that I should update. This wasn't too annoying until Google started saying that my browser was unsupported. I've tried updating all my plugins and uninstalling unsupported ones. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox from my computer. I can't seem to figure out what the issue is with the program. I have Windows 10 if that has anything to do with it, but my guess is it might have something to do with the settings. I don't know though. Please help before my browser stops working!

Topic title covers most of it.

Basically:

A few days ago, Firefox started running extremely slowly. Tabs take considerably longer to load, the browser becomes laggy when it tries to load anything, and attempting to open multiple tabs at once leads to Firefox becoming completely unresponsive for some time.

Attempting to refresh had no effect. Safe mode made it run at full speed, but disabling all add-ons did nothing under normal circumstances. Disabling hardware acceleration caused Firefox to go from "unusable" to "frustratingly slow". Disabling WebGL had no appreciable effect. Installing new drivers for my processor and graphics card had no effect. Restarting my computer had no effect. Removing cookies had no effect. Clearing the cache had no effect. Disabling Sync had no effect. Reinstalling Firefox by renaming the old install to "Old Firefox" had no effect.

I'm using Firefox 46.0.1, 64 bit.

I can't provide info on my plugins right now, as I'm posting this in Chrome because of how slow Firefox has become.
