Locate your profile folder

The default location of the Firefox profile folder is %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\.

  • %APPDATA% is shorthand for the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ folder (Windows 7/Vista) or the C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\ folder (Windows XP/2000), which depends on your Windows user account name.

The default location of the Firefox profile folder is ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/xxxxxxxx.default/.

The default location of the Firefox profile folder is ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/.

  • xxxxxxxx represents a random string of 8 characters.

You can locate your profile folder using these instructions:

  2. Under Application Basics, click on Open Containing FolderShow in Finder. This will open the profile folder (e.g., the xxxxxxxx.default folder).
Note: If you can’t open Firefox, use the instructions for Firefox 3.5 given below.

  2. If your existing profile folder and profile backup folder have the same name, simply replace the existing profile folder with the profile backup, then start Firefox.
    Important: The profile folder names must match exactly for this to work, including the random string of 8 characters. If the names do not match or if you are restoring a backup to a different location, follow the steps below.

Restoring to a different location

  1. Completely close Firefox, as explained above.
  2. Use the Firefox Profile Manager to create a new profile in your desired location, then exit the Profile Manager.
    Note: If you just installed Firefox on a new computer, you can use the default profile that is automatically created when you first run Firefox, instead of creating a new profile.
  3. Locate the backed up profile folder on your hard drive or backup medium (e.g., your USB-stick).
  4. Open the profile folder backup (e.g., the xxxxxxxx.default backup).
  5. Copy the entire contents of the profile folder backup, such as the mimeTypes.rdf file, prefs.js file, bookmarkbackups folder, etc.
  6. Locate and open the new profile folder as explained above and then close Firefox (if open).
  7. Paste the contents of the backed up profile folder into the new profile folder, overwriting existing files of the same name.
  8. Start Firefox.
