This is an old problem, but the suggestions in https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=3782&p=22231&hilit=Access+denied+profile+directory.#p22231 did not work for me.

What did the trick were:

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R "$USER:$USER" "$HOME"
as suggested in https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=10534&p=73565&hilit=chown#p73565
and

Code: Select all

palemoon -no-remote -ProfileManager
as suggested in https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11612&p=81842&hilit=profile#p81842

Which filesystem do you use for profile? I experienced the same access denied on overlayfs.
