Mozilla Firefox Profile Missing

Q: Mozilla Firefox Profile Missing

A month or so ago when I tried to load Mozilla Firefox I got the message 'your firefox profile cannot be loaded, it maybe missing or inaccessible.

I have looked online for a solution, it seems to be a common problem, but I need a solution in easy language. My computer knowledge is OK but most of the solutions baffled me a little.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that doesn't work.

I'm running Windows Vista.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hello All,
Here's my problem. I've erased my profile from Mozilla Firefox. I HAVE NOT however erased the profile files.

I have since created a profile with a different name. I would like to import the old profile info (bookmarks inparticular) to my new "default" profile.

As well, what if I wanted to import info from another Mozilla Firefox profile?

Can this be done?

I've tried everything but I can't seem to figure it out.

If you do post please be advised that I am not all that familiar with Firefox.

Thank you all for your time.
 

A:Solved: Mozilla Firefox...Erased Profile but not files...trying to import to new profile

I move mine manually all the time. If you just want to add the bookmarks.html, just move the one you saved to the new profile. Here is the official instructions from Firefox on backup and restore of the Profile.

Hi All,
 
I'm having an issue with Firefox.  I while back while talking to IT support for another application I may have inadvertently done something to my user account.  Trying to assign administrator privileges I think.  Ever since then my Firefox has not been working and my desktop icons are all screwy.  I've been working around it.  
 
I decided to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it.  Still have the problem.  When I try to open Firefox I get an error saying: 'Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded.  It may be missing or inaccessible'
 
I'm using Windows 7 64 bit.
 
Can anyone help?
 
Thanks,

I upgraded to Firefox 9 in which i was able to activate Google Toolbar using "Addons compatibility reporter".
I created a new profile for Firefox 9 and when i open it Google Toolbar is not there together with bookmarks. "Addons compatibility reporter" did not activate Google Toolbar in the new profile browser.
Do you have any suggestions?

A:firefox missing profile

Never heard that happen before. The default would reset all so it would be like a new install so any changes you made would be lost or that is how it used to be.

Anyhow do not know what is wrong. But once you get it fixed get MozBackup.

This would get all back the way it was to the last backup.

I woke up this morning and started up my computer. When I opened up mozilla and began to surf a bit, a random command prompt window pops up, runs some dialog and then closes just as quickly as it began. The window keeps closing faster than I can read what it is doing but I was able to see that it said something along the lines of "mozilla/roaming profile" i think.....What is going on? I have good virus protection...at least I thought I did. This issue hasn't caused any problems, YET. Please HELP ME, before it DOES!
 
**Also, after reading the forum prep...I tried running the DDS software like it says...but kept getting a notification popup that says, "DDS is not meant to run in 'Compatibility Mode' this program will now exit." As far as I know, I never set my preferences to run EVERY program in 'Compatibility Mode'. Just a few specific ones. I checked the 'Advanced Settings' in 'Compatibility Mode Troubleshooting', but the 'DDS' program doesn't come up in the list of affected programs...I am a bit stumped at this point.**

Ok so my buddy's ancient xp laptop has failing video. I logged onto it as an administrator and shared all the users documents. I proceeded to another pc in the house running Vista and created an administrator account with the same credentials as the laptop's then copied (mostly I used copy but for a few folders I used the move command) over the network the primary users profile folder. It took two attempts. It failed to connect the first time but succeeded after I returned to the laptop and disabled simple file sharing and gave the laptops administrator's user account I shared the folders from security permissions to all user folders in question.

I had my friend's girlfriend verify all her pictures were in place on the Vista PC and they were. I felt like "see I do know my stuff". They aren't computer people and have alot of old failing machines I keep going for them. I do this for a living and must have donated a not insignificant amount of time keeping their aging stuff going and I've had a string of having to tell them I simply couldn't make things like HD transcoding and playback run "any more better" or that I couldn't software fix failing hardware on their aging collection of machines. So I was happy for the successful move.

This question has been raised before by others but apparently no solution was offered by anyone.

I have two user profiles on the same PC with one (main user)having the administrator rights.

Today, when I attempted to log in as the main user, I got the following message:

" Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator."

I found one microsoft support note which suggests that a new profile needs to be created and the contens of the old profile except .dat files have to be copied in the new profile folders.

However, all my folders in the original profile including MY documents and Favorites are EMPTY.

I am unable to retrieve valuable files. Can anyone suggest a step wise procedure to locate where my files have disappeared.

By the way, I tried system restore operation to restore the system three days backward. yet, everything is the same and the folders are empty. so, i have undone the system restore. thanks

PS
AS AN ADDITIONAL INFO, if it might help, i have discovered rather large "FOUND.000" folders ion"C" drive. the last one has the size 897 mb which is about the same time that the folders and files disappeared. i have read that these foldrrs are similar to .chk files and can be remvoed. however, i am not sure of this in view of the missing data.

Hi,

Long story short, I got a virus last week and received terrific help from CatByte. The link to that thread is below. Everything went well and my computer was running better than it had in years. CatByte suggested I do some further cleanup and maintenance to help keep me from getting another virus. I ran TFC cleaner and after that I couldn't open Firefox. I get the message that Firefox is still running and to close it before trying to open it again. There are no Firefox processes running. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox to no avail. When I did some investigating as to what the problem could be, I read that the profile lock could be the cause and when I went to find the profiles I discovered that the Mozilla profile folder is empty. I think the profiles are somewhere but they aren't in that folder. Any help in getting my Firefox up and running again would be most appreciated. Here's the link to the previous thread:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f100...us-488911.html

Thank you!

A:Mozilla Profile Folder is Empty

Don't use Registry Cleaners! See if yours is reversible or try a system restore if you have a restore point between fixing the problem and using the cleaner. If not, you can build a new profile without "hunting" for the old which is probably easier.

I know other users have had issues with this but I didn't know if I could follow the solutions for their problem or not.

(Not sure what information is helpful so I'll start and the top and be brief)
For my job I am required to sometimes go to 'suspect websites' and normally Norton will catch anything before it even has a chance to download. Sadly, two weeks ago I did download a file called Trojan.Gen (or at least that is what Norton called it). Almost immediately Norton caught and removed all threats but I knew I wasn't going to get off that easy.

For a few days everything seemed fine but shortly after I started seeing attack messages from Norton from \device\harddiskvolume1\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe, the IP and web address changes.

I couldn't tell if it was doing anything to my computer and have since been trying to remove it with no luck with Norton. Now, my web pages are being redirected to either a fake search page or a Pay Per Click page, if I click a link in Google.

Norton and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free are telling me that they are not detecting anything.

I did read the preparation guide, so I hope I have all the information that is needed.

I want to thank you in advance for any help that I can get and I understand that this is a process. I appreciate your time!

I have 4 browsers on my computer: Internet Explorer 8, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. I am trying to listen to some MP3 files on a website, and all of the browsers, except for IE 8, told me to download the Realplayer Plugin. So I did, and when I tried to listen to the MP3 file, Realplayer will automatically enable this "Autoupdate Helper" thing and check for updates. So I let it check for updates, but then it'll say "There are no updates..." and just stop there. The file won't play! I click play again, and the same thing happens.

Internet Explorer is the only browser smart enough to open the MP3 files on the web page using Quicktime (the website actually tells you to use Quicktime to open the files) but it doesn't load the Youtube videos that are embedded on the site. There's a X on the top left corner of the section where the video is suppose to be.

Now I'm stuck! I want to view all the contents on one page with one browser! But none of the browsers will actually work properly!

So the main problem is:

1. The MP3 files won't load in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera using Quicktime.

Chrome is the only browser I use frequently, and the others are basically backup. IS THERE ANY SOLUTION TO THIS!?!?!?

Thanks everyone!

When I open Mozilla via local icons, it will read and load a specific profile. This allows me to use 3.6.13 (..\firefox.exe" -p "FF_3_6_13" -no-remote) and 4.0b9pre (..\firefox.exe" -p "Minefield64" -no-remote) without one interfering with the other. (4.0b9pre is set as default).

When the browser opens via an e-mail or web page hyperlink the profile file is ignored. I can live with it but sometimes I need an add-on I use and it is not running.

Is there a setting I can use to have Mozilla read the profile when opening it from a hyperlink?

A:Mozilla ignores profile when opened via email/web hyperlink

Check your profiles.ini in Notepad it should look somewhat like this:

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0] <--- FF 3.6 profile
Name=New1112
IsRelative=1
Path=Profiles/j39iqzek.New1112
Default=1

[Profile1] <--- FF4 Profile
Name=FF4
IsRelative=1
Path=Profiles/dgu37doz.FF4
Default=1

Make sure the Default= is present in EACH Block and of course have it point to the profile Block you want to use for those email links

I don't know if my problem is Firefox or WordPress but I thought I'd try here first.
I use WordPress to publish articles and usually copy and paste from the finished article in the Articles forum to WordPress but since I reinstalled Win 7 this no longer works as paste is no longer an option when I right click in WordPress, or at least in the particular part that I need it to. I can, however, do it in Internet Explorer, but images aren't copied over, which they used to be. I've tried all the usual things like clearing the cache, but nothing has worked. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi,
I am using Win-7 too but I haven't used IE. So my suggestion is to, try another browser for the same purpose and then see the effects (I feel firefox is well suited for the purpose). If you are getting same problems then, you are missing with some features of Win-7 otherwise, it is the website issue.

Hi Guys

I am new to this forum and have limited knowledge of computers.
I was using Firefox version 2 and was very happy until I was requested to download version 3. Now I seem to have endless crashes and keep getting told Firefox has a problem & needs to close. Up to 5 x a day.

This is very frustrating.
This happens with avg, facebook ,all internet functions.

I have spybot running and avg and says there are no problems.

We had a power failure earlier yesterday and when I switched back on Microsoft suggested I check the C drive as there was a problem -but that seems to have sorted itself out.-probably due to not closing down properly.

So can you help me with detailed instructions on how to fix forefox or totally remove it and install from the beginning or is there major problems with that version 3 .1 ?

Thanks
Carol

A:Mozilla Firefox

You'll probably have to go in and remove all remnants of Firefox from your Users and Program Files directories. If this still doesn't fix it, then you'll probably end up doing some registry diving to fix it. Don't forget to backup the registry and know how to restore it before modifying it!

Click Bookmarks>Organize Bookmarks...
The Library window will open up. On the left side, there is the bookmark folder tree. Choose the folder you want to organize, right-click on it and choose Sort by Name. Or, if you're like me and don't have any folders but have all the bookmarks in the main bookmark menu itself, right click on Bookmark Menu and choose Sort by Name.

I installed the IE extension tab , and then installed the windows update kb896424, now I dont know what caused this but I can no longer launch firefox, when I click on the executable it doesnt do anything, I have reinstalled, ran spyware scans,uninstalled pestpatrol, ewido, unistalled the microsoft patch,has anyone had this issue??
 

A:Mozilla firefox 1.0.7...

Open your task manager. Click on the Processes tab. Look for Firefox.exe. and end that process using the task manager.

Firefox should open normally for you after that.

Sometimes it doesn't close completely for whatever reason, and when this happens and you click on the executable, it won't open a new browser.

Check in your "Profiles Folder" and see if you can retrieve it from there. Or do a file search for a file named "bookmarks.html". If you find it, just import it into the browser.

Hi all

Mozilla Firefox (v3.06) is intermittently showing a 'fault' - the visible webpage, not the heading, is jumping up and down, just less than font height in magnitude. The fault is not happening all the time but randomly. There is no one page which is showing this fault but it just happens. The only trigger seems to be when I select an item on the page. When it happens I have to return to previous page or if it is on the default page I shutdown and restart. IE is O/K. I have tried system restore, still there.

Whilst on the forum pages there is no problem so I think it may be just news stories when I select them as the default is 'news.bbc.co.uk'.

I want to re-install FF however I do not want to lose the settings, can I re-install over the original?

That might be some advertising gone awry. Personally, I would try installing the AdBlockPlus add-on extension along with a good subscription.

Alternatively, but more work, the NoScript add-on could help alleviate this as well.

I used to use Netscape browser it was great, then like most of us I moved over to Mozilla Firefox and it used to be great too.
Now However I get an update almost every week which annoys the hell out of me.
This thing seems to be getting more and more boated all the time.
The latest problem is half the time it won't shut down I end up having to open taskmaster and shutting it down that way so I can then reopen it up.
Seems to want to run unseen in the background. What?s the cure for this? Even rebooting the computer doesn't always shut it down
Another problem is I seem to have lost the refresh button. A real nuisance when you are bidding on an auction with just a minute to go.
I have tried to get it back from options, toolbars to no avail.
I tried a while ago to download Opera and use this instead but it wouldn't load??

A:Mozilla Firefox

Even though it did not work for you, I would still suggest:
Open Tools menu, choose Options... item,
Choose Advanced (over to the righthand side at the top),
open the tab labeled "Update".

You have three options and can choose exactly one of them: You would choose Either:
Check for Updates, but let me choose whether...
Or
Never Check for Updates.

The only question is, are these options and that path presented for you or not? Then, if they are, then do they fail for you when you had selected them?

A:Mozilla Firefox

Its very likely that the problem isn't with Firefox, and instead with you coding non standard web pages. IE goes against a lot of internet standards, and tools like Frontpage further propagated the problem.

A good coder will write standards compliant code so it opens properly on many web browsers. Only testing your page to make it work in IE only is poor practice.

Firefox is not listed on my Task Manager whenever that happens. Recently Eset detected a virus when I run Firefox, the virus tried to direct and open Firefox to this address "http://112.201.96.1:15133/x"
The name of the virus Eset detected was "Win32/Virut.NBP virus". Now I don't if this virus was the cause of Firefox's disappearing act, I read on the internet that this virus is difficult to remove, I may have to resort to formatting my HD just to make sure that this virus is completely eliminated from my computer.

1. Go to Windows Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, and if a 'Mozilla Firefox' entry (or similar) exists, select it and click Change/Remove and uninstall it. Note, you can also uninstall Firefox by going to the \Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\ directory and running the UinstallFirefox.exe file. Reboot if required.

2. Go to your Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Mozilla directory and delete the entire \Firefox subdirectory and all of its contents. Note that this will delete all of your bookmarks and saved settings. If you want to backup any or all of your current Profile, see the Customizing Firefox section first.

3. Go to your \Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ directory and delete it and all of its contents.

4. Using a registry cleaner like RegCleaner 4.3, find and remove all Firefox/Mozilla-related entries (usually there are several Mozilla entries to be found) and remove them.

I have heard that you are better off connecting to the internet via Mozilla Firefox because there doesn't appear to be as many viral etc problems with these browsers - it this right? Also the last time I downloaded Mozilla and tried to use it I had problems connecting - I'm on dial up and the company I use refused to help me because I was using a bowser other than explorer so I deleted it and kept using explorer. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I'm thinking about downloading and using Firefox.

I'm a newbierunning windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3I use mozilla firefox to search, but lately it is extremely slow.In searching online...I've seen people suggesting going to about:config and changing false to true in a couple place (pipelining) and changing max request to a higher number 30....I've tried these (probably foolishly) and they haven't helped. When I search with IE, everything is speedy, but normally I have searched with MF, and I don't know the first thing about cookies, etc.. so I am totally at YOUR mercy. I would appreciate any help. I am so glad I finally found your forum, where I can get some reliable help, hopefully in words an idiot can comprehend.Again thanks for your help, and I apologize for my ignorance, in advance.ThanksEdit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Why does my Firefox take so long to open?

A:Mozilla Firefox

Could be one of a few things:
You are using too much RAM for other things.
Your cache is too large.
Extensions
Malware (I'm really hoping it isn't this one)

Run your browser while no other windows are open. If this solves your problem, then congratulations! If not, proceed to the next solution.

Clear your cache. You can do this under your Tools menu.

What extensions do you have installed? Some of these can make loading slow.

Have a slight problem, recently I installed Mozilla Firefox on a computer and delivered it to a co-worker. Couple days later I was told that while on the internet on Firefox no sound is heard. What could be the problem?

A:Mozilla Firefox

Hi,

I need some more information, like what site is being viewed? What version of FF is being used? Are all the sound drivers installed, and up-to-date? I just need some information like that and any thing else that you can give me would be great.

Cheers!
