I'm just wondering if it is normal for the Mozilla folder located in the hidden program data folders to have a long string of numbers and letters after Mozilla?

Hi kat2wolf, It looks normal to me. You can also find it if you enter about:support in the address bar and press Enter. (Menu -> Help -> More troubleshooting information) In the Application Basics section, look for Update Folder.

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder. One location for your personal data (e.g. bookmarks) and another location for temporary files like the disk cache.

Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>

Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>
