Here are some of the files that I found: /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/extensions /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/bookmarkbackups /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/secmod.db /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/Cache /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/hostperm.1 /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/extensions.ini /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/localstore.rdf /home/nekrad/.mozilla/firefox/k5eu0o2p.default/signons2.txt ... The listed files are symlinks to the correct files. I *need* it to move off these temporary files from my coda filesystem to get moz illa starting up in an reasonable time. Seamonkey works quite fine that way, but firefox has an silly and useless "test" which fails and refuses any operation. I was not yet able to find the source of that crash, otherwise I already would have kicked off the whole code. Until that bug is fixed, FF is totally unusable for me. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
firefox -P select create profile select a name select choose folder and select a path to some other file system why are you such an important user that you have to advocate your personal problems in a database designed for technical issues?
Ah, now I've found the source of the problem. Probably blamed the wrong folks, actually it's bug in Gentoo's "mozilla-launcher".
If the bug is Gentoo specific, file a bug in their database, (http://bugs.gentoo.org/), feel free to reference that number here. This is not a mozilla bug, so.. --> Invalid.
See: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=180935 Solved it now. It was clearly an Gentoo issue, had nothing to do with mozilla itself.
