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?

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

I keep getting asked to put mozilla on my phone... I don't have a smart phone - I am 60 years old and don't intend to get one.... I don't want to be pestered with things like this. If there is a button for me to pick saying don't ask again I can click it and go on my way... I am sure I am not the only person using your services that does not need all the bells and whistles...

According to the Task Manager, when FF tries to start it stops booting at around 9,700-9,800K. This is pretty consistent. Right now it is at 9,764K. Last time I tried there was another FF file that went up to 34,XXXK. This time not.

I tried doing a System Restore but it did not complete because some of the files could not be updated.

Found an exe files for my version, installed that, still the same problem. I thought that maybe the exe file was damaged, but the new one does exactly the same thing.

So many help screens say go to the Menu but that is not possible when it won't even boot up!

I did not install any software or do anything to the computer before this. To make matters worse, somehow internet connection got disconnect. With much googling, found how to fix that.

I have saved my profile folder to the desktop because I cannot afford to lose all my bookmarks, etc.

Now what?

I am asking this question on a different computer as the laptop is too much of a pain to type on with that pad in the front. Besides, without FF..... So no automated info gathering will help you.

I tried opening Opera which I have on that laptop and it won't even start at all! Chrome does, that's how I downloaded a new exe file.

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.
