After the update to 66.0.4 (in product update) , my firefox installation folder has changed ??

Once i restarted after this update, firefox had a problem reloading the tabs i had open and i chose to "refresh firefox". Subsequently my installation folder has mysteriously changed from C:\Program Files (x86) to C:\users\****\Appdata\Local\Mozilla Firefox.

Anyone else had similar ???

I know 66.0.5 is released now, but the issue occured under 66.0.4

AFAIK, Program Files (x86) stores the Firefox.exe file(s) for the 32 bit version and all the related data files are stored in that Apdata/Local/Mozilla Firefox section. So, if you are using the 32bit version what you posted above seems to be correct. I use the 64bit version and the only diff. from what you posted to what I have is that my Firefox.exe is stored in C:Program Files. There are some other support files in my system for Firefox also stored in C/Apdata/local.... so, if you are using the 32 bit version it looks good to me.
