Firefox sync and copied profile

Kuphostiwe

I backed up my laptop's profile on Dec 3. I've since made changes to bookmarks and such on that system, but can no longer access to the computer. So I'm going to copy the backed up profile to a new computer.

Question: a) Will sync work from the profile data and saved credentials copied to the new computer? b) Will sync update the new computer with the changes that had been made on the old computer since Dec 3?

Hi Wayne

I believe yes to both.

If you have saved your Firefox profile and install this in the new installation, the new installation will use this - it will know no different.

Firefox Sync looks at the data that has been syncced to it and compares that with the location and should sync accross the newest version of the data.
