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.

jscher2000,

Thank you for your response to my question, but my Windows 7 system does not contain the "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox" file.

What do I need to do to establish that particular file? Or how would I actually load FireFox to create that file?

Thank you,

After last update I got this message , translated from Swedish to English: "Your Firefoxprofile can´t be used. It may be lost or impossible to reach"

I have uninstalled Firefox by putting it in the dustbin and then reinstalled a new downloaded copy, but with the same result and message.

What to do?

Best regards
