Where is the user profile directory for ICS located? Is it sys\usr? looking to drop a custom whitelist file for an extension addin

I know this should be easy but...

I trying to use this extension for a custom whitelist and want to blacklist everything else. Digging through all of the directories and searching Google I have not been able to find any info on where the profile directories are stored to put the files. Thanks!

To find your currently active profile folder:

Help > Troubleshooting Information > "Show Folder" button

But at that point, I'm not sure exactly where the file you created belongs. Hopefully the extension publisher has documented that for you.

jscher2000 that won't work on Android.

The profile folder is in protected phone storage. Unless you have your phone rooted you won't be able to access it.

If you do have a rooted phone then it would be

  /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox/files/mozilla/???????.default/

Oh, sorry, ICS = Ice Cream Sandwich. I had assumed some flavor of Linux. Never mind!

Thanks for the replies! Shoot - this is the addin SilentBlock which says it's an android addin

Have you been able to figure out how to get SilentBlock to work on a tablet? I'd like to use it as well.
