I've been having issues w/FF 61.0.2 losing everything new such as new bookmarks, ANY setting. Have posted Qs and followed various steps. Finally tried a complete reinstall. I uninstalled (from Windows 7 Pro 64b), rebooted, downloaded & used the installer, w/gave me 62.0.2 which is only 3 days old. Only hiccup was an error stating 'MS Register Server has stopped working' and I chose 'close the program'.

I specifically unchecked the box upon install to NOT use any old settings when it prompted me 'FF has been installed before' yet a fresh install now gives me my old profiles prompt. I do not want ANY old settings. I need a COMPLETELY new pristine FF install.

Please help me get back to using FF where I can save bookmarks, install uBlock, make cookie exceptions, only default profile, etc.


Thank you profusely in advance,

Mac

Profiles are stored in two locations (local & roaming) but none of the articles I have read specify which to use OR both.

Reference: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1174885 The final answer was 'roaming' which was all that ragnajoe and myself wanted to know. The other articles about profiles, backups, recovery, '2017-10-13-12-36-19-82d39f.png',etc., ASSUMEs everyone has the same knowledge background. The problem could have been answered by referring us to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_finding-your-profile-without-opening-firefox.

 Please use a more non-assuming tech editor next time.

I recently changed my laptop. I took a backup of the entire profile folder. In my new laptop, I deleted the entire contents of the new profile folder and pasted the contents from the old profile folder. This process works for me every time. However, this time my bookmarks are getting lost. Everything else is in place. Is there a method to manually restore only the bookmarks from my profile folder backup? I never took a manual backup of only bookmarks. Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Hello!

I am now struggling to configure Firefox in a VDI environment and we want the Firefox profiles to be stored on a network share in order to take them out from the user folder.

Guess there should be a line in the mozilla.cfg file to change the path, but I'm not able to find it.

Anyone has faced the same situation? Is it possible to specify a path where all the profiles will be stored?

Thanks!!

A virus hosed my Windows 10 system. In restoring my apps, I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. It created its own default profile. I have saved earlier Profiles in a separate folder on a different drive. I copied them back to the default folders in the Users folder. When I run Profile Manager, it only shows the one Profile just created but won't recognize or list those other profiles. I need some help, since those profiles have all my Bookmarks, extensions, etc. Please help.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted all profiles, viewed and attempted every suggestion that was found via search engine. Firefox will only start with -P option and creation of new profile. Once closed, it will not open again using the profile just created. Any ideas as to what type of additional troubleshooting that is available. There are no crash reports or logs generated anywhere that can be found. Running on Windows 7 Professional.
