I tried to reproduce this issue, but this error is shown in the console: 

Child process initialized
Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

Can you please help me to succeed starting the ESR so I can reproduce the issue?

the testing directory is /Downloads? 

and this is know issue of firefox as i can see: 

https://askubuntu.com/questions/350968/firefox-wont-launch-error-access-was-denied-while-trying-to-open-files-in-yo

so try this might help: 

sudo chown -R usernamehere.usernamehere .mozilla/

dont tell me u r using ubuntu?
I only managed to run Firefox with firejail --noprofile on Ubuntu 16.04:

- tried with ESR60.2 and Nightly 64.0a1 (2018-09-06)
- the issue is not reproducing on neither of the cases, no crashes reported

In the case of trying to run firejail default, i get Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory and Firefox won't start.


In my view, the above hint towards a miss-configuration of the profile path. Not sure if it is a Firefox or a firejail issue at this point.

By chance, do you know what the error above means and how could I fix it?

you have problem: 

- i didnt said to test this on the disaster OS called Ubuntu which made by the horrible company canonical (which is the other face of microsoft). i said to test this on Debian. 

i checked this problem as well with FireJail issues and i found this: (they said it has been fix , but i see nothing on reality):

https://github.com/netblue30/firejail/issues/2110
Flags: needinfo?(tnt_bom_bom)
according to the upstream: firejail 0.9.54 fixed that issue. 

Thanks for all of the collaborations.
