Migrate Firefox profile. Move it to another computer.

Move Forefox profile to another computer’ will be the subject of this tutorial.
We had several requests from users about how to move their Firefox passwords from one to another computer or account.
Honestly there is no easy two-clicks way to migrate the passwords, history, bookmarks, etc on Mozilla Firefox broswer.

The profile is located at:

‘C:\Documents and Settings\%User name%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles’

We presume that your Windows is installed on C: drive. Also take in mind if you think to copy and paste this raw that ‘%User name%’ should be the username of your Windows login.

‘Application Data’ is a hidden folder so you need to enable this option: Show hidden files and folders – in order to have access and see it.

This can be done as going to:

Start button – > Programs -> Accessories -> Windows Explorer

Once Windows Explorer is opened go to:

Tools -> Folder Options …

Then on the top second tab ‘View’ and check ‘Show hidden files and folders” option.
