     33
     34Firefox has a nasty habit of requiring a new profile every few releases. I say this is nasty because logins, current tabs, plugins (even if still supported) and perhaps bookmarks can be lost. In addition, it tends to name the profiles default, then default.default when it creates another.

     36Part of a way around this is to open firefox with 'firefox -P' (before a profile change is needed) and rename the profile you intend to use. When firefox then says that a new profile is needed, cancel and rerun it from a term using 'MOZ_ALLOW_DOWNGRADE=1 firefox -P' : this will allow you to use the existing profile. After that, kill firefox and then you should be able to open it in the normal way and retore what you were browsing.
