it has not changed much in decades really.

copy your existing profile to the new location. Use the profile wizard in about:profiles to create a new profile specifying your profiles new location as it's destination.

The profile is usually stored in a folder names with default or release in the name and the whole [profile folder should be copied

about:profiles is in the troubleshooting information on the help menu.
