How do I reinstall Firefox to my "F" drive (where it was and still exists from before my PC totally crashed) and then how do I point FF to my old profile?

Postáilte

Win XP (why? because I like the interface) totally crashed and had to be reinstalled. How do I get Firefox to install on a drive other than the C drive? I want FF back in the same location that it was. (The files on Drive F are all still in place.) Also, I want to keep my old Profile and Add-Ons, etc.

During the install, you will be asked about where you want the program. If it can't find your old profile, we can fix that after.

Hi, probably FredMcD means 39.0 version, not 38.0.5.

thanks

If you have a profile that doesn't show in the Profile Manager and want to (re)register it then use the Profile Manager to create a new profile and click the "Choose Folder" button and browse to the unregistered profile to make Firefox use this profile.

  1. open the Profile Manager
  2. click "Create Profile" and read the text
  3. click Next to proceed to the window where you can either accept the default or choose an existing folder to use for the profile
  4. click "Choose Folder" and browse to the profile folder you want to register

You can give this profile a descriptive name that will show in the Profile Manager if you like. Click "Start Firefox" to start Firefox with the selected profile Note that you should never specify a folder via "Choose Folder" that already has other files in it, but either select a valid profile or an empty folder. Firefox will recognize and use this folder and you will have access to all personal data (bookmarks and other data) that is stored in this profile.
