Where are the Firefox profiles files stored in Windows 7? I currently have Firefox 3.6.24 profiles and have installed 3.6.24 on Win7. How can I get Firefox to read my profile
I just want to copy the profiles off the old xp machine onto the new Win 7 machine and run Firefox 3.6.24 on it. Then I'll upgrade to a newer Firefox later.

Profile is a folder which store all your personal data in a safe place

Window XP uses a different directory structure than Windows 7 and because of that it is best not to copy a full Firefox profile from Windows XP to a Windows 7 computer, but only copy the files that you really need and that are safe to copy.
