Then adjust "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini"

to point at it, e.g.

Code:
[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=Profiles/zqb2ro5a.default
Default=1
unless I am misunderstanding something

You can copy the folder called "profiles" from your vista AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox folder onto flash.

Then copy it from flash into your win 7 AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox folder.

Sorry for the late response...my Corgi is paralyzed and sick and had to take care of that. I copied it over onto the W7 Mozilla folder, closed it out and restarted but no change.

remember you have to edit the profiles.ini file to point to your new profile...
you would have copied the folder over while FF was closed..
and no you do NOT need to restart Windows..

I only restarted FF. I'll see if I can do what you recommended. I've transferred photos and things of that nature via the flash drive but not to this extent before and not comfortable not knowing exactly what I'm doing but, I'm going to give it a stab.

Sorry guys but this is just not coming together. I see two profiles on W7 and not sure which is which or for what.

I don't know where that last one came from as the profile for the Visa machine is onfec8hu.default

In retrospect that second one may be from an old profile of FF. Why it shows as todays date I don't know.

Then you obviously haven't copied onfec8hu.default into the win 7 profiles folder.

No-can you just drag and drop it in to that folder?
