What about the rest of your profile? Settings, bookmarks, history, passwords . . . .


Sometimes when the browser thinks there is a problem with the profile, it will create a new one.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
