Deleting ~/.mozilla/firefox/profile.ini fix the problem!
Thanks everybody!
profile.ini is just a short list of your profiles - are you now missing your addons that were in those profiles?

"Safe mode" does the same thing (as "ignore or delete the profile"), but without deleting anything.

Light install: building up vs cutting down.

FWIW, on principle I like a light installation in terms of disk space, boot time and "user experience" (no lags, please). I've found it's easier to start with a full install and cut down rather than a minimal install and build up, and they end up about the same. All the below installs use fluxbox wi...

Re: list of packages that can be uninstalled

At installation your system had 300,000 files. That goes up with time. Weeding out 20 or 200 won't make ANY difference. Just let it go. I managed to cut that in about half. There is a TON of junk in most linux installs. Mint 19.2 $ sud find /mnt/MINT -type f | wc -l 128363 $ df --inodes /mnt/MINT F...
