Addons keep getting disabled when switching between Linux and Windows (Using the same profile data).

Posted

I am dual booting Windows and Linux on my laptop. Both operating systems have Firefox Developer Addition installed. I have my Firefox profile folder on a partition which both Linux and Windows can read, and both installs of Firefox use that profile. The problem is, whenever I switch operating systems, all my addons get disabled and I have to manually re-enable them.

Why is it doing this, and how can I keep this from happening?

I know I could just use Firefox Sync, but it is so much more convenient to have all my open tabs on both operating systems exactly the same.

Thanks!
