Why is the new default behaviour to create a new profile? I have no interest in firefox sync, and the old sqllite file works fine in the new profile.
Why is the new default behavior to create a new profile? I was just curious, as I've been helping others to migrate their profiles all day. Sync is not something I am interested in as I prefer to keep my browsing history to myself, IE on this physical laptop, as much as possible, especially at work as per policy.
Old places.sqllite works fine in the new profile dir, so everything appears to have been compatible to simply migrate the old profile...
Was just curious about the rationale. Still the best browser there is.

hi czwarts01, firefox 67 introduced a feature called "dedicated profiles". this allows users to install multiple firefox versions (like release and nightly versions) side-by site - each of them will be using its own profile, since sharing the same profile across multiple versions is not supported (profiles are not downwards compatible).
this is done by looking at the install path - as long as your firefox installation folder isn't changing, there actually shouldn't be any new profiles created though...
