Question

Firefox 18.0.01 (Mac) Won't synch Bookmarks with older FF versions 9!0.5.8 and 10.4.11) How can I synch these versions? Thanks

Firefox just upgraded itself to 18.0.1 on my iMac (OSX 10.7.5, Lion) I have been using " Synchronize! Pro " for ten years to synch (or Backup) my iMac to my three laptops.

The Laptops are all PPC (non-Intel)  iBooks of various vintages, running OS X 10.5.8 and 10.4.11.

The synchs ran fine until yesterday, when FF 18.0.1 arrived

Synchronize! Pro synchronized the drnpcf9j.default folder in the Firefox's profiles folder from the pre-18.0.1 version to the same folder in the three PPC laptops running FF 3.6.24 and 3.6.28.

Now, with the upgrade to ver. 18.0.1, it won't synch. The bookmarks are now located in a folder named "Profiles" which contains two new folders , neither of them named the old "drnpcf9j.default" .

How can I synch (or back-up) my new Profiles or bookmarks to the three older iBooks)

The Firefox synch won't work because the older browsers don't have a synch setup in the "Tools" menu.

Suggestions dearly welcome.

Many thanks
