I have looked in \AppData\ for cached images. I took a printscreen image then cropped it, and I need the original to help a software company find a glaring error in their programming. Normally Windows puts temporary images into the \TEMP\ directory, but it's empty and I have not cleared the cache nor deleted files. Where can I look?

I have a new Windows 7 computer and the hard drive from my old computer (XP) The old hard drive is not bootable but I can see my complete old Firefox profile.

I have not exported the profile.

Ideally I would like to just copy the old profile to my new Firefox setup but Win 7 won't let me browse to the folder. (c:\Users\(name)\Application Data.

What I would like is basically a complete Import function where I could browse to the old profile and have Firefox just copy everything in? Does such a thing exist? Is there some other way to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Thanks.

I work in IT for a medium-sized organization (enterprise). I need a way of exporting and exporting bookmarks for all of my users, and I need to to it in a way that is automated or CLI (babysitting 100+ laptops and importing in person is not an option). We're transferring users to new laptops in three weeks, but we will need this functionality to exist afterwards too (so we can build something to automate bookmark backups and restorations with our internal network). We do use Zenworks at work, but we'll have other scripting options too.

Any link I've found on command-line options for running Firefox with other tools doesn't allow me to quite do what I need to (i.e. I have a way of exporting to an html, but not importing it; -migration switch gives me a GUI). Any resources I've found on Firefox's command line arguments are inconsistent and not clear on what options work with what version. As such, I don't even know if options exist that would actually help.

Due to security issues, running a plugin or storing bookmarks off-site are not options.

I found the existence of profiles.ini and was able to write a script (windows cmd bat - God help me) to pull out what directory gets created for the profile, and then copy files to the user's network drive. I also wrote one to copy one from the user's network drive to their new profile. The problem I'm encountering at this point is that firefox doesn't use the newest bookmark-<date>.json file that gets slapped in the directory. Something else must be referencing what bookmark filename to use. Hoping it's something in the registry or in a plain text file, not a sqllite db, otherwise I'm kind of hosed.

I guess my question is this... is there not a simpler way of doing this, or a (firefox) command line option to do what I need?

In lieu of that, anyone have an idea of how I can tell firefox to use a specific bookmark file to start off with, or the most recent one in the profile directory? Again, it needs to be hands-off. We're not talking about a solution for one person.

And thirdly, if there is no answer to my first question, my question to Firefox developers is "why is this basic feature omitted"? In my opinion, it's obvious and serious enough I would be willing to call it a bug. Many others are having the same problem. (If I don't get a workable solution to the first two questions, I'll follow up with this one in a more appropriate forum or email...)

How do I disable "encrypted page/unencrypted connection" security warning?

I keep getting the message "Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party". I have unchecked all the boxes in the Tools>Options>Security>Settings. They weren't checked to begin with. In fact, if I select the "I'm about to view an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information" option I get a dialog box that looks completely different and is worded "You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party." When I click continue I get the the original message too! What is going on and how do I fix it?

I would like to have in options>bookmark toolbar unchecked, and a hot key or shortcut key to show or hide the bookmark toolbar. Having it checked takes room, and the autohide mouse hover addons get annoying when your going type in the URL bar and not use the bookmarks.

Is there a hotkey for this. Thank you in advance.

I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

I just updated Firefox to version 15.0 on the Mac. Suddenly, all of my bookmark folders that are supposed to be in my Bookmarks Toolbar are no longer there, and the Toolbar won't let me put them back there. This is substantially non-optimal. I must say, I'm becoming less and less of a fan of Firefox with every passing update, which saddens me.
