I'm having a problem with Win 11 that will likely require that I reinstall the OS. I decided to move most of the data in my User folder by right clicking and changing the drive from "C:" to "E:" in the Locations tab. Firefox was closed as a I did this, it worked fine, and then I restarted the PC. Upon opening Firefox none of the extensions are working and I'm not sure what to do.

Installed C: software doesn't like to move to any other drive then C: root since all the running program and installs into the Windows system folder require the installed software to match the location to run. Changing any of these locations will not run the software as your experienced. You should move it back to C: root for them to work again since those extension probably have the system installed them in C: drive not E: drive. And why are you moving those files and folder any way? Files always require C: root install to run properly.

Your comment indicates you aren't familiar with how modern Windows "%" paths work. The OS can store the "%user%" folder and the folders within pretty much anywhere, you just have to tell the system where it is, either by right clicking the folder and going to the "Location" tab before selecting a new location and clicking "Yes" when it asks if you want to copy the files, or manually copying the files and changing the path through the registry. Additionally, most programs can be installed to any drive these days, so your last sentence is particularly incorrect.

Additionally, you can create, rename, and change where a Firefox profile is stored through the "about:profiles" address line within Firefox.
