No: your profile is stored in a separate location; just don't check the option to remove settings.

Any progress on a Nvidia accelerated GUI fix?

I've tried this and even tried removing the profiles folder too (I know this shouldn't affect that, but was worth a try). I can install Waterfox 13 PL1 just fine to a fresh folder, but any of the Waterfox 14 installers fail. And it's because of an internal admin rights check in the installer. Windows isn't preventing or disallowing the installation, it's the installer itself. This has never been an issue on any earlier Waterfoxes or any Firefoxes, including 14. I believe this is a regression in the new installer, and like sfranklin1717 said, a deal breaker.

Open up a command line, Waterfox 14 Setup.exe /extract. Run the .msi installer in the extracted folder.

The .msi in the extracted folder does the same thing. However, this command line switch also extracts all the Waterfox program files, so I can at least run a temporary "portable" version of Waterfox, in the same folder the install file refuses to install to.

Same here, i tried all suggestions but it seems the -internal- icon path for Waterfox is incorrect, no matter what i do, when i run the program, the no icon, icon, is displayed. This -must- be a internal Waterfox issue.

Have you any evidence that the Nvidia GUI issue is directly related to the Waterfox installer, and not a bug in the graphics driver?

I saw this info this morning. It may not be of any help. But, take a look and see if it offers any ideas:
