I had to do this several times and therefore had serveral profile folders in the Windows profile folder (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\kiw8fe\ff_profile). When I choose to delete a profile, Firefox tried to delete the complete Windows profile, i.e. delete every file and folder in C:\Documents and Settings\kiw8fe! This corrupted my PC and it was very tiresome to restore it. I consider this as a high level error. I very much propageted the use of Firefox in my company, but this is a serious flaw, which objects against use in a big company with more than 30.000 Windows clients. If users can erraneously cause such havoc on their systems, this can not be handled by our internal support division properly. I will not try to reproduce it , as it takes a lot of work to undo the damage. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.Create custom profile with folder for profile data below Windows profile folder. 2.Start Firefox with option -p 3.Select the custom profile and press delete 4.Firefox tries to delete the complete Windows profile folder. Actual Results: I could not start my PC any more, because the Windows profile data (and for many other applications to) were lost!!! Expected Results: Delete only the folder, which contains data for the selected Firefox profile.
