Where does Firefox for Android store its profile?

I have some mobile devices I will be upgrading for clients.

Everyone wants to bring their tabs, bookmarks, history, etc. to their new device, but a number of them do not want to use Firefox Sync.

In Firefox for destkop it is child's play to copy and/or move a profile. In Android it is not at all obvious. Even on devices where I have root, I don't see a folder for Firefox.

On my own phone (in both main storage and the SDCard, when mounted) I have the folder /Android/data/org.mozilla.firefox which has two sub-folders: "Download" and "temp" (both empty -- hidden files are exposed in my file manager)

There does not seem to be any other folder related to Firefox, but surely this can not be!

So, where can I find the FF for Android profile folder?

Alternatively, how can I migrate a profile (especially tabs, bookmarks, history) without using Firefox Sync and without manually copying a profile?

Thanks in advance!

Hi

The profile in Firefox for Android is stored in the app and I believe that the device would have to be "rooted" for you to access it.

Even if you did that (not recommended!), this version of Firefox is fundamentally different to that on desktop and I do not think that the same profile would work.
