User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:88.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/88.0

Steps to reproduce:

Start Firefox Nightly (90.0a1 (2021-05-05) (64-Bit)).

Actual results:

In the browser console there is this error:
NotFoundError: Could not open the file at C:\Users....\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\rlshia6o.default-nightly\startupCache\

Is it logged only when the profile is new or on every run?

The startCache will not exist yet during the first run on a new profile and so it is expected that that file does not exist.
(e.g. if that is the case, the type of this issue could be changed to task or enhancement, because we may double-check if we can omit the log when Firefox is running on a newly created profile or turn it into a warning, but if it happens on every run there we should investigate more into what is going on).

The Bugbug bot thinks this bug should belong to the 'Toolkit::Startup and Profile System' component, and is moving the bug to that component. Please revert this change in case you think the bot is wrong.

Component: Untriaged → Startup and Profile System
Product: Firefox → Toolkit

Is it logged only when the profile is new or on every run?

The error will show every time a update is installed or when i start with a new profile.
