I'm currently using a Windows 10 desktop computer most of the time, but will need to use a Windows 11 laptop for research travel several times over the next several months.

Will it be possible to copy my profile from Win 10 to the Win 11 computer, use the Win 11 computer for a few weeks, and then copy the profile back to the Win 10 computer?

Or is there something different about Firefox working with Win 10 or Win 11 that would keep this from working for me?

(BTW: Using Sync would probably not be feasible.)

Advice will be much appreciated!

I asked about this crash problem on 9/2/20, which was answered by FredMcD. Below is my response.

I tried replying to FredMcD's email, not realizing it was "no-reply".

Is there a better way to have some back-and-forth with you support folks than this awkward email method?

The above procedure found this folder: This PC > LocalDisk (C:) > Users > alanf > AppData > Roaming > Firefox > Profiles > dl1f50tv.default . I renamed the latter file to dl1f50tv_crashsave.default . I restarted the computer, then tried to restart Firefox. I got the message: "Profile Missing" "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." > > > Don't delete the files if you need to rescue any data from them, just move them out of the profile folder to some location where Firefox doesn't look for them. You can try to read out their contents using this tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html

I did not try this, since I'm not really sure what file you meant by "Locate the above file."

What next?

Thanks for your help!

I am a computer user. Don't try to be able to be a power user, as I have better things to do with my time. I downloaded Firefox to be able to take some FEMA courses required for my Search and Rescue volunteering. I download it and installed. Launch the program and followed instructions to set up an account. OK that seemed a bit much for a free browser but I assumed like all internet based companies it was a data collection exercise that would test my dedication to blocking all email spam.

After the account set-up, I was met with the concept that I needed a browser on a second machine to be linked to the account. Some lame excuse that you couldn't sync with only on computer with the browser. Funny thing why would you want to sync if you only had one machine with the browser. Have a simple backup system would take care of any of that. Oh well I was stuck because the browser would not function and I followed through with downloading the program onto my iPhone and scanning the code. It seemed to work. The only acknowledgments is a continuing barrage of emails telling me "someone is trying to log into my account." Yea that's me because I got asked a second time to set-up this bloody link. Some something is not working.

I would just delete everything (account and Firefox) but I am scared that my email address will be tarred and feathered and not allowed to be used again ever!!

Help please. What I hoped to be a quiet morning completing 2 need courses has ended up costs me hours of frustration.

Thanks

Mike

When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf). I do that and also check your "Save this for future" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf in your Settings and it just gets ignored.

I'm not exactly sure what this is called. Maybe it's in the cache, but I don't know. One of the fastest timesavers I have is that I use the Firefox url feature that makes suggestions as soon as I start typing a url. I pull up dozens, possibly hundreds of articles that I refer to frequently this way, so that I don't have to bother bookmarking them. I don't clear the cache, to keep these references from disappearing. I have to move computers now. My longtime mac is not working well anymore. Is there any way to bring these url suggestions with me when I migrate? Thank you.

Hi there,

i'd like to copy my Firefox profile from PC1 to a new PC2;

Last time i tried this, i ended up with PC2 having the same "name" as PC1 in "Sync". This caused weird sync issues, as the system thought my PC2 was PC1 as vice versa.

So, is it possible to copy my entire profile with all addons/settings, BUT, make "Sync" recognize it as a NEW pc ?


Thank you in advance :-)

Firefox wasn't working well on a seldom-used laptop, and the update to 100.0.1 didn't go quite right, so I deleted the old version and (using the odious Edge) tried downloading a fresh copy of the software.

But then I get a message from "7-ZIP" that reads "Can not create temp folder archive"

I'm stuck. Advice?

Just a suggestion on getting update content information.

I do not enable automatic updates in order to maintain personal update control and to generally wait a few days to allow any bugs in the update to shake out [e.g 81.0.2 to fix the Twitter bug in 81.0.1 -- No biggie, small bugs can crop-up in any update in spite of Mozilla's commendable quality control]. When manually checking Firefox "About" to look at update status, the pop-up shows the current installed version, with a link to "What's new?" [Great idea, thanks]. Unfortunately, there is not a "What's new?" link beside the box to download a new update, thus one must do an on-line search for the related Release Note to determine the urgency/relevancy of doing the update.

Adding an additional "What's new?" would be an appreciated change -- Thanks and be well.
