I have to agree with you - but things like the Personas and stuff you want to keep - just some of 'em - can you tell me if it is possible to get the darn things back - you see there are some personas I can cut out / delete myself - will that help do you think and the Book marks all 815 of them could be cut out by hand (?) It has been said that the process makes a folder of your old data - lookit cybervibin it is NOT that I do not trust Firefox it is just that I am chik-chik CHICKEN - but once again thanks very much for your interest in my problem

For people who are new to firefox and are - as I have been - a bit chik-chik-chicken of trying something new - when a firefox contributor recommends an action to you - then you were best to take it - this applies to ALL the help I have had from Firefox contributors - no SWEAT - it works and I am now working with a single theme - Halloween - MY SEASON - my collection of these was over 80 IIRC - I love pictures - but having wall paper installed from Windows - all you do is minimize Firefox which is now fast and FIREFIXED and working so well - look after your wall paper and you do not need all the add ons and themes - I have mine all in a single folder - just as I was told it would be - "Old Firefox Data" if I want - I know where it is but just a last thing - how do I do that - get one or two (Honestly) out for use -

BTW I forgot to say that FireFIX can use my words to advertise themselves with my permission

yes i can help you with that too :) you see, firrox makes a "profile" folder where it stores alll your stuff ,that explains the "old firefox data folder" now if you want to locate it ,i cant really explain well ****[[this is a link which wil explain|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles]] *** the first part should explain enough, and now that you have found it , copy the files you want, i would not really recomend it but its your wish, u can always instal the ones you want from the store. If you stil did not find it its in the temperory folder "%temp%" write this in run

ha ha ha - been there done that and swapped a lot of trash for a nice clean and well-behaved browser I want everyone in FireFIX new name - because instead of eighty I have only Ten personas and the bookmarks - aww I know where they are and all the poems and cat and dog info was saved in there - Being on windows seven now which interacts well with FireFIXIT I have built my Foxtab up and it is beginning to look good any time the team are in need of a reference - I can do one - but if you take any of my "thank you" replies let any one read them I will TELL them
