after crash get back my informations

Posted

hi

i had a bad experience ;-(, my pc crashed and i can not get to run again.... so i changed the hard disk and made fresh installation. i also made a new firefox installation.

is there a possibility to get back the information from the other hard disk like bookmarks, passwords etc? i can not access the old firefox installation, so i can not create a backup or export a profile or book marks so i have no files.

but i can copy data from the old hard disk.

is there a way to manage this

thank you regards f.
