enorbet, use this for the profile problem...

if you have different profiles:
Code:
firefox -p --allow-downgrade
if you only have one profile:
Code:
firefox --allow-downgrade

The same message popped up again for the update from 68.6.0ESR to 68.7.0ESR, and this time I let it generate a new profile (no choice if you want FF to open at all) and then picked my previous profile as my default, which just contains the files from the profile before that, from before this silliness started. Maybe a file or files from my old profile upsets FF when it tries to do an update now.

Like last time, 68.7.0ESR looks and acts more or less like 68.6.0ESR.

This is all in Windows 10 on my work computer. I haven't run into it on my personal computers in Linux (current or ESR on different Linuxes) or OpenBSD (both current and ESR) yet.

I hope this isn't going to happen everytime there's an update.

If it does, I'll have to figure out the equivalent of the code ChuangTzu posted that works in Win10.
