Firefox 67 sometimes ignores existing profile

Post by barbaz » Tue May 28, 2019 3:12 am ... r-profile/

I run into this when setting up Firefox for testing. The about:profiles method in that article works.

On a related note, How does Firefox 67 determine install hash?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

All existing concepts of profiles, installs (whatever that is), profiles.ini, installs.ini (what is that you ask), DDE, -no-remote, -P, ... are out the door with 67.

Whatever you did know, forget about it, it no longer pertains.
Best I can tell, none of that works - correctly, any longer.

Best I can tell, is there is no cohesive information on the changes made, on those topics (& whatever else needs to be known, understood) to (now) correctly & efficiently use, profiles.

And they made these changes, because "power" users couldn't figure out how to run their Nightlies.
Give me a break!

Firefox 67, multiple user profiles

BTW, all that Brinkmann is doing (in that post) is rehashing what has been "told" (what Mozilla has said), otherwise he knows not.
