What folder in Ubuntu holds my history, bookmarks, and extensions?

Skrevet

My Ubuntu 16.04 box can't startup in Ubuntu.

I can access the folders on the computer using a LiveUSB.

What folders do I need to retrieve?

  - Firefox 68.0.2 64 bit
  - Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LiveUSB
  - Ubuntu Linux 16.04 Installed OS
  - Macbook Pro (mid 2009) OS X El Capitan

Could you try the path(s) in this article -- if it shows the wrong OS, expand the Editing Tools in the left column and use the OS selector there to switch the article to Linux:

Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data

In Linux the main Firefox profile folder that stores personal data is in the hidden "~/.mozilla/firefox/" folder. The secondary location in "~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/" is used for the disk cache and isn't important.

This is the error message: Filesystem does not support symbolic links

Will this cause me issues?

Hi 813bruce, did all the other files get copied, it just skipped one? I don't know what a symlink would be used for in the profile folder. ??

Yes

As far as I can tell, everything else copied. The only error window was the one about asking to skip that file.

It's probably better NOT to copy the lock file, so I guess you can declare success.
