Mozilla firefox fills system memory and gets killed during startup if I use my "default" profile, even when started in safe mode. I'm using Kubuntu Linux.
$ firefox -safe-mode Killed $
Upgrading did not help (from firefox 3.6.13+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.04.1 to firefox_3.6.16+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.04.1_i386.deb).
I created a new profile and it works, safe mode is not required.
How can I repair the "default" profile? I'd like to have access to the data stored there (bookmarks, history, scrapbook, passwords etc).
