Details

This should be easy to reproduce, at least on this platform. To test something else, I deliberately deleted my profile directory. First I quit FF, and then I did:

% cd Application\ Support/Firefox/
% ls Profiles/
22b0zdzg.default
% /bin/rm -rf Profiles/22b0zdzg.default/
%

Then I launched Firefox.

I got an alert saying another instance of Firefox was already running.

Really? No, not really. There seems to be a problem with the guess being made as to the source of a problem. There may be reasons to correctly identify the error condition.
