FireFox crashed:

Posted 17 December 2012 - 10:21 AM

I couldn't find a proper forum to put this in, thought I would start here. I wasn't doing anything particular, but when I clicked on FF it made a folder called old Firefox data, the next thing I know it stops working. The old folder has data that I use in FF. I get the message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. How can I get FF back? I've been using IE and hate it. Please help.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Have you done all the normal stuff:

Reboot
Uninstall FF - Reinstall FF
Run a solid anti-virus check

Boot to a different WIndows User and see if FF works there so you know if it is the program install, or your user account.

... blah blah..

I would venture to guess no.

Have you Tried forgetting about firefox?

Try Chrome. It's also free; and it's interface is quite like FF's

At least give it a shot.

Agree. If to choose between FF and Chrome, the latter is faster and better (imho, surely). I've got Flash crashes in FF recently, and updates don't really change the situation.
