I was not running firefox as root (I used the Applications menu), and
none of the files in my profile folder are/were owned by root.

I'm not sure if the "rename profile" wizard would do the trick or not.
The weird thing was that by copying the profile folder, I'm using the
*exact* same files that previously wouldn't load. This leads me to
believe the bug is not in some corrupted profile files, but rather in
the code reading the profile.

On that note, it may be that this bug is already fixed. I edited
'profiles.ini' again and tried running with my old (previously broken)
profile. It started up with no problem, which it would not a month ago,
so maybe one of the recent updates has fixed this issue... without
changing my profile files. Has anyone replicated this bug recently?
