On firing up firefox, I get an error as

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible

I had moved my /home to a different partition and didn't backup my ~/.mozilla. So how can I create a new fresh firefox profile?


Run firefox with the -P option (-p or -ProfileManager would also work) to start it with the profile manager. Use that to create a new profile and make it the default. On a Mac you'd run

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P

for instance.
