copy profile to 67

Posted

This morning my 67 FF said it was a new profile and would not have book marks etc. I wanted to copy from the old one. But after a reboot 67 has all the boomarks etc

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles seems to have two profiles now. one from 2016 and one from now. Should i delete the now one as i want my bookmarks and do not want to sync?

OK sorted it out woth about:profiles

Have you solved the problem? Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; '''Old Firefox?''' Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible

If you lost personal data then it is possible that a new default-release profile folder has been created. See "Determine if Firefox has created a new profile":

You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.

Firefox 67 and later can use a dedicated profile for each of the Firefox update channels and will lock the profile, so it can only be used by Firefox in a specific installation folder. For Release versions this profile would be a xxxxxxxx.default-release profile, profiles used in older Firefox versions usually used a xxxxxxxx.default profile (a refresh adds a time stamp).
