In organization we like to use Firefox as default browser. But we have a every day problem with profiles.
After update, Firefox create new profile and not copy user data to it. So user lost hes tabs, extensions, history and e.t.c. We can see two or more profiles for one user.
For example user logon to computer with Firefox version 68.0.1. Firefox automatically update to 68.0.2, and user now have new profile without custom data.
profiles.ini looks like:
[Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/6qa5a710.default-release Locked=1
[Profile1] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/6qa5a710.default-release
[Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/xu3ic03g.default-1561039332923 Default=1
[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2
We create powershell script for workaround issue. Script copy files from privies profile: $profileCurrent\*.sqlite" $profileCurrent\sessionstore.jsonlz4" $profileCurrent\extensions\*.*" $profileCurrent\*.json"
You mast know that in organization we user roaming profile and ue-v, so users can logon on any computer. Some computers can be with older Firefox version like 68.0.1 or new one like 68.0.2.
Please help find solution for this issues. Can Firefox account help with this? Or we mast create some more clever script?
