Firefox doesn’t respond when I start it. I went to the Firefox help page and it said the problem was that my profile should not be read-only. However, I can’t seem to change it. How do I change the profile from read-only?
good afternoon: i also have the "read-only" problem! i have tried numerous times to change (i.e uncheck the grey, not black, check-mark in the read-only box! however, as soon as i hit "ok" the grey check mark reappears. i have tried re -installing firefox and i have tried a new profile amongst many other attempts to determine the problem. is there any one out there who has an idea about what could be wrong? thanks for any help that you might have bill
firefox profile folder becomes read-only after closing browser
Make sure that you do not have read only file in your Firefox profile. The read-only attribute may have been set by restoring files from a CD or file protected media, and can cause numerous problems within your Firefox profile. Windows allows you to remove read-only attributes at the directory level for all subordinate folders and files.
