Is it safe/adviseable to save the Firefox profile from old installation of Linux Mint OS and use that saved profile under newly installed Firefox browser

Is there a way to get a request to the developers of Firefox (particularly, the version that is installed and used by Linux Mint 19.3) that they come up with a way for users of Linux Mint (including those of us who are not terminal command line experts) to easily move the saved info like passwords, autofill info, etc., etc. from Firefox on an older install of Linux Mint to a newly installed/fresh version of of LInux Mint, without having compatibility problems being caused by that info not being liked by the Firefox browser under the new Linux Mint install ???

Also, it sure would be nice if Firefox would fix the bookmarking features of the browser by No. 1) getting rid of that OTHER folder category/choice for storing saved bookmarks and No. 2) getting rid of the feature that makes the window for choosing where to save bookmark disappear after just a short time period of a second or two and just WAIT until the user makes a chose of where to save and display the bookmark and user has hit the OK/enter/done key function.
