Locked Mozilla Profiles That Are Not Really In Use

You want to go into your .mozilla directory and find the lock file in the profile subdirectory. In my case it looked like this:

$ find dave -name lock
dave/zpjhwnsl.slt/lock

Delete the sucker and then you can use the profile. It is probably a really good idea to make sure that the profile is really not being used before nuking the lock.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
