Which Firefox profile should I back up ?

Posted

Hi Using Firefox 72.0.1 64 bit I use Moz Backup to back up both Thunderbird and Firefox. I just went to back up Firefox and there is now two profiles. One is shown as Default followed by 13 digits. The other profile is Default-release. I dont know which one to back up to be able to save my bookmarks etc. Im not too technical so please make it easy....lol Thanks Rob

Enter about:profiles in the URL bar. Profile, that is currently used, should be described there.

Hi Thanks for reply, appreciate it. I had already done that and it lists the two profiles as per my post. Previously there was only one, so I used Moz Backup to back up that profile. Now, when I go to back up the profile, it shows two, and I dont know which one to back up?
