Where is the user profile folder located on Mobile Firefox?

I'm interested in modifying the userChrome.css files as well as tweaking the about protocol pages for my mobile browser. I would like to give the about:home page a dark UI to save power with my AMOLED screen as well as adding other useful links directly on the about:home page like the "Check for Updates" button from the about:firefox page. I've manage to do some modifications to an installed Fennec on my PC (~/.mozilla/fennec), but I want to move those changes to mobile.

It's difficult browsing the Android filesystem, so does anyone know where I could find this folder?

You may not have permission to modify files in the Firefox profile folder. But it is in /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox/files/mozilla/*.default/Cache

Check for updates won't do anything on Firefox installed from the Android Market. It only functions on Aurora and Nightly.

Naturally. Why would I ask about modding things and not be running the latest and greatest on a rooted phone?

Anyhow: thanks for the info kbrosnan.

Ah just noticed you were on CM, made a small error and the folder the userChrome.css file should be in /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox/files/mozilla/*.default/Chrome
