    Saving FF profile

    I'm trying to get things sorted to be able to load clean install of Windows 10. I don't have much other than programs on my OS drive but I want to save my Firefox profile and am having problems figuring out what they mean when I read the instructions, it says follow the information above. The problem is, there is nothing above.

    How do I get the profile saved so I won't lose it when I install Windows 10 next month.

    You could just save the whole profile folder.

    Enter about:support in the addressbar
    Click on Open Folder next to Profile Folder
    Save the files in that folder

    You can read the official Mozilla instructions here:

    Thanks Midknyte. I'll probably have another question once I get Windows 10 installed.

    And by the way, I've never seen a backup of my profile on my desktop.

    Mozbackup saved my butt a few times when FF was my main browser.
    Don't believe everything you think.
