I never had an Firefox account i never used sync. I had a problem with setting firefox as standard webbrowser and the solution for that was reinstalling the browser... The desription said that all would be saved (tabs and passwords) and i only would have to reinstall the browser. Now suddenly i dont have anything that was on before and the browser is completly different.

Can sync use the information that is supposedly allready on my desktop to regain my data or is theere nothing i can do? If so that would be the reason to never use this browser again.

Thank you for your time

Wij hebben 2 iPads en een gewone computer. Verwijder ik ergens een mail, dan gaat die overal uit. Dat willen wij niet. Gooi ik hem bij de iPad van mij weg omdat ik er niets aan heb, dan verdwijnt die ook uit de andere apparaten en dat moet niet. Op die anderen moet het blijven staan. Wij hebben Ziggo. Heeft iemand een idee voor ons ?

Hi! Not much on details. I just want to move my existing profile to a server. Can I just copy name.default to the server, rename name.default on the client, and on the client create a link name.default to the server profile? Or, can I use ProfileManager to create a new profile on the server and copy the contents of the client profile to the new one?

We currently would like to upgrade our centrally installed Firefox ESR version and would like users to keep their settings and be disrupted minimally. Specifically we would like to upgrade from 68.4.2 to the current 68.8.

I am aware that as of Firefox 67 a dedicated profile version is used for each Firefox version (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation).

I had assumed that as it is only a minor upgrade of the same ESR version a new profile would not be necessary, however it creates a new empty profile by default.

The suggested solution to use Firefox Sync is not an option as creating Firefox Sync accounts for all our users would even be more overhead.

Is it indended behaviour that new profiles are created for the same ESR (major) version? Is there a simple way to migrate existing profiles?

Thanks.

Can I use a thumbdrive to save space on the hard drive? I'd be willing to move everything, but I am thinking (and asking) how about saving just the stuff I have placed into local folders? I'd go to the extreme by installing Thunderbird onto my thumbdrive and migrating everything to the thumbdrive. I'd then be okay with using the thumbdrive each time I wanted to interact with Thunderbird AND my email(s). I just do not know what to do with all my saved emails. To save space, I really don't want to simply delete emails I've saved for years.

I shall appreciate any assistance. Thank you, Community. JLynch541
