I had Win XP, with Firefox latest. I didn't know what is Firefox profile folder there. Now this XP is replaced with Win 7 (new installation, not update). How can I "import" settings of Firefox from "old XP" to new Win7?

I cannot boot to old XP, it's deleted in boot ini file. But I can access all files of XP on disk.

  • are u able to access my documents and os installation file drives of xp? – BlueBerry - Vignesh4303 Sep 19 '13 at 11:12

See This Tutorial on how to find your profile data - you should be able to copy it straight from the old location to the new one.

the source folder will be

C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows  XPlogin/user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\(profile folder)

And then you paste any found profiles into

C:\Users\<Windows 7 login/user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\(profile folder)
  • Good, tks. It's %appdata% folder. – RProgram Sep 19 '13 at 11:36
