Firefox not opening

Hi Experts,

I can't open Firefox, I am getting this error every time I tried to open: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible".  I tried to re-install and didn't fix the problem. This is a windows 7
Please advise how to fix it.

Hello Chenzovicc

From my point of view, It may be the best to perform clean re-install and delete the entire Firefox program folder in case some items are located in the Firefox program folder and those may be use to initialize a new profile.

Note that Windows hides some file extensions by default.

Among them are .html and .ini and .js and .txt, so you may only see a name without file extension.

You can see the real file type if you open the Properties via the right-click context menu

You can find the full version of the latest Firefox 22.0 release in all languages and for all Operating Systems here:

Also create a new profile.

You can also transfer some files from existing profile to the new profile if you want, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.

For what it's worth, the current version of Firefox (2015-01-13) is version 35.0.
