So i have a Problem with Firefoxes Profiles.
I'm logged in Windows with an user without admin rights. I install Firefox (providing an account with admin rights of course), and start it. If i start it as an Administrator, everything is fine. however starting it as a non-admin user, the Profile Manager opens every time with no profiles. It doesnt matter if i create a new Profile, next start everything is again empty. After Googleing a bit, i discovered, that the Profiles are stored in a
%APPDATA%/mozilla/... i tried to open that file, but it seems that the whole
mozilla folder under
%APPDATA% is a link to the Administrators
%APPDATA%. I cant be sure though, because i cant follow the link, even with administrative rights, and cant delete it.
It would be an acceptable solution to set the default Profiles Folder at Setup (with an command line parameter) if something like this is possible
Any Suggestions or Solutions? Thanks
EDIT: The problem is recreatable. This is what i've done:
- Log in as Administrator
- install Firefox
- log out without having opened firefox
- log in as a normal user
- start Firefox.
this time firefox didnt even asked for a Profile, it opened witout an adress bar and the "firefox" menu was really weird. Again i have
mozilla folders in the
%APPDATA% folders for every user, but its the same non-readable folder/link thing. even with administrative rights i cant delete any of them.
