With Windows, the Firefox program folder is created in the computers Programs Folder:

C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) Note: Check Both Folders

The installer will create a profile for each user account on the computer. These can only
be accessed by that user.

Hi, Tap the menu button (either below the screen on some devices or in the upper right of the browser) and select Settings (you may need to tap More first) . Tap Sign in. The Firefox Accounts page will open in a new tab. Enter your email and password you used to sign up for your Firefox Account and tap on Sign in.
