Howto: Fix Firefox Error "your firefox profile cannot be loaded. it may be missing or inaccessible" On Ubuntu

When I upgraded my Firefox to the latest version complete, I can't open it and it says "your firefox profile cannot be loaded. it may be missing or inaccessible". So I think because my current user that run Firefox startup don't have permission to open or create the new profile that create from installer(I think it use root permission for that). So this post is how to fix it. just use

chown -R USER:GROUP /home/USER/.mozilla/

Now the problem has gone, have a nice day. :)

It turns out the same thing had to be done to my .cache directory, at least with Firefox 22.0.

I don't sure about that, tried to change permission to 777 and try again. If it's work I think the same issue is the incorrect permission.

For me it works too when I do it with both directories as root.
"sudo chown -R peter:peter ./.mozilla/"
"sudo chown -R peter:peter ./.cache/"
