Re: [FireFox] Need to Backup all my Firefox Settings, but where?

I've tested by reinstalling and clearing my profile and then reinstalling FF. But, I noticed that the default folder inside the Profile folder was generated a new name....What should I do in this case?

Because when FF is reinstalled, then it will re-create that default folder under the profile folder with a new random name...

I removed that image from the main post if that causes a security concern...Thx for the heads up.

The actual name of the profile folder does not matter, its the contents inside that do. Well, it matters from Firefox's standpoint, as far as where the profile is located. All you really care about is the files contained at that point.

So, once Firefox is installed, and you run it the first time (to create the default profile), exit Firefox, and then delete everything in that folder. Then, copy the contents of your folder into that location.
