Since I upgraded to firefox 21, I've been unable to start it. It stops
loading with "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing
or inaccessible". I have tried shifting .mozilla out of the way (so
that firefox will create a new one) and that does not fix it. When it
runs, firefox creates ~/.mozilla/firefox/ (but nothing else) and gives
the same error message. I have tried cleaning everything in /usr/local/
and /var/db/ports/ and then rebuilding all ports but without any luck.
There must be something simple I've done wrong but I can't figure it out.

Matthew Luckie, and lo! it spake thus:
I had this happen on one box where my ~/.cache/ was owned by root (and
so not writable by me). I had to resort to digging around ktrace to
find it, thanks to the "helpful" FF error message.
