New PC, new Firefox installation, moving profile problems

I wanted to move my FF profile from my old PC (Firefox ESR for Windows XP SP3 32 bit 52.9?) to my new PC where I installed Firefox ESR 91.11 64 bit.

Moving the profile was no problem. I simply copied it on an USB-Stick and moved it to the profile folder of the new installation.

Starting FF works and it remembers all old links, settings and usernames for the sites I visited - BUT it does not store any password I enter after having moved the profile.

Simply copying the profile to the new PC did not work. Mozilla seems to have changed the way passwords are treated somewhere between the old 32 bit FF / TB 52.9 and the new 64bit FF /TB 91.11.

What finally worked was:

Installing the obsolete 52.9 versions of FF/ TB on the new Windows 10 64bit PC.

Then moving the profiles from the old to the new PC profile folders of FF / TB using an USB-stick worked fine as the old versions on both systems were compatible.

And only then updating FF and TB in several steps until they are now on the latest ESR again.

Also, is there a reason for using ESR (old) version with your brand new computer running Win10?

I wrote that I use Windows 10 64bit, not Windows 11. FF 99.11.0esr is the current version for the ESR.
