  • Open Start > Run, and enter the following exactly: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles then press OK.
  • You will see an eight-character folder, which is your Firefox profile. (xxxxxxxx.default) (x=random character)
  • Right-click on that folder and select Copy. Then, go to My Documents and right-click and select Paste. (If we make an error, at least the data for your current Firefox profile will be backed up, so it can be safely restored.)
  • Go to Start > Run. Enter the following: firefox.exe -ProfileManager and then press OK.
  • To start the Create Profile Wizard, click Create Profile... in the Profile Manager.
  • Click Next and enter the name of the profile. Use a profile name that is descriptive, such as your personal name. This name is not exposed on the Internet.
  • You can also choose where to store the profile, which is useful if you plan on exporting your data and settings to another computer or setup in the future. To choose its storage location on your system, click Choose Folder....
  • Note: If you choose a custom location for the profile, store it in a new or clean folder. When you choose to remove the profile, all contents stored in the same folder are removed.
  • To create the new profile, click Finish.
  • The new profile is displayed in the Profile Manager.
  • Lastly. Choose the New Profile and click Start Firefox. If you do not want it to prompt you, then click Don't Ask at Startup.

Please let me know if this worked or not.

Hi Janette. I haven't heard back from you to see if that latest fix I recommended worked.

It was supposed to cure the 302 error that you've been receiving.

Ok thanks. If the error happens again I will post here. Has anyone else been having the same error??
If it still happens do you think deleting firefox then re-installing may help..or just do a re-install of Win 7??

You're welcome. I haven't noticed this same error too often but I suppose if I did a search I would find some threads.

If changing your profile name didn't help, I doubt that re-installing FF would help. I don't think a re-install of your OS will improve anything because I feel that the problem is with FF.

Hi Jannette. Are you still getting that error? If not, we need to do some cleanup of all the tools we used.
