OT - security - Firefox 67 Switching to Empty Profiles Causing Data Loss Fears

Rene Matthijssen

Mozilla Firefox users are reporting that when they upgrade to the latest Firefox 67, they are finding that their add-ons are missing, their customization's are gone, and their history is gone. This is being caused by the browser creating new profiles for Firefox 67 and using that instead of the original one.

Firefox keeps user data such as installed add-ons, browser history, cookies, preferences, and bookmarks in a browser profile. Prior to Firefox 67, all versions of Firefox installed on a computer would share the same profile by default.
