Hello,

I have been trying to reinstall firefox developer edition for the last 45 min. I am trying to install firefox without it importing my old data like passwords etc. I have tried deleting the folder that gets created when I uninstall firefox on the desktop but it just keeps importing anyway. I have tried removing the sync account but still no result.

How do I install firefox developer edition without it importing everything everytime?

Kind regards, Robbert

Hi, it is not importing old data. It is importing the date from another installed Firefox. Do you have another Firefox installed ? If so it shares your bookmarks and preferences. If uninstalled a version of Firefox the Profile Folder is left behind. Solution is uninstall the other version and delete or move the Profile.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Open Run Window type ''firefox.exe -p it popup a firefox profile window.

All your content are saved in firefox profile, so delete the existing profile and create new one. So you don't have any content in your new profile from old profile.
