Under troubleshooting, there's a list item with the following text:

            If you encounter strange problems relating to bookmarks, downloads, window
            placement, toolbars, history, or other settings, it is recommended that you try
            creating a new profile and attempting to reproduce the problem before filing
            bugs. Create a new profile by running Firefox with the -P command line
            argument, choose the "Manage Profiles" button and then choose "Create
            Profile...". Migrate your settings files (Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, etc) over
            one by one, checking each time to see if the problems resurface. If you do
            find a particular profile data file is causing a problem, file a bug and attach
            the file.


The "choose the "Manage Profiles" button and " part actually doesn't apply anymore (I wonder for how long), and should be removed.

Closing old Mozilla.org website bugs due to them not being relevant to the new Python-based Bedrock system. Re-open if this is a critical bug and should be resolved on the new system too.
