MSIX Firefox uses quite a different location for the profile folder than the official release. MSIX: C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Packages\Mozilla.Firefox_xxxxxxxxxxxxx\LocalCache\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles Release: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles


You can copy certain files with Firefox closed from one profile folder to the current profile folder to transfer personal data. Note that best is to avoid restoring a full profile folder and only restore important files that are safe to restore/transfer.
