Thanks for your immediate response. Unfortunately it's No Luck. I was able to follow your instructions though I got bizarred on step #5 because we cannot copy the whole folder while you're on the Admin login then switch to another user log then paste the copied folder.

What I did is from Admin log: went to (C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles), then copied the whole folder 2a56m1rv.default, then went to (C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles) then paste the folder.

I noticed that there were already an existing folder under the User's Side: yvee4nhn.default. After copying 2a56m1rv.default, there were 2 folders now from the User's side - Both has .default name.

Then I switched to User login, open firefox, then I did not see the add ons. The add ons im working on is Block Site Plus 1.1

Thanks for your continuous support.
