finding login passwords for firefox

I've been dealing with my old, dead PC and need to either:

Transfer all firefox app data to the new PC from the old PC drive, which is in an external caddy

Access the passwords from the drive and simply copy/load them onto the new PC for each of the three users.

I have tried this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data but there are no such files in the users folder.

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks

Josh

Were you able to start Firefox on the old system?

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Copy this folder As Is to a thumb drive folder. You can then move the thumb to another computer.

Hi again,

Each time I try this, it starts Firefox from the C:\ in the computer. Even if I go into the external drive folrders to start firefox from the .exe file on that drive, all the details revert to the profile on the C:\

I have been having frequent problems with access permissions to certain folders on the exterior drive. These have returned, despite my resetting them - in win 7 - so i'm not sure what else I can try.

Thanks

Okay. What is happening is the old program is looking at your current settings. We can do this, but it will be a bit tricky.

Hi again,

I've sorted out better access across both the external and internal drives. Some areas are still off limits, but I can see that that the folder "appdata" has migrated from the extrnal drive to the internal one - not copied, but moved.

I guess this is from a failed attempt to use ForensiT's User Profile Manager. My guess is it has not the returned files and folders to their original place on uninstalling it.

I am starting to think this is going to be too messy to untangle, and that we'll have to copy what we can, then rebuild it over time.

A painful way to learn the importance of having an up to date MBR disk for BOOT errors.

Thanks for your help
