PM related folders after migrating back to FF

Postby vvMtMBvv » Thu May 11, 2017 12:03 pm

hello

I used PM portable for a pretty long time. till that one big update, which made to Goanna and rejected some really helpful for me extensions.
I tried to use previous version as nothing happened, but it was useless after some sites' updates.
So, I had to go back to FF portable and copied profile folders.

not long before reinstalling of the system I found hidden PM folders (in AppData, etc).
"okay, I'll just delete them". but they spawned again, along w/ folder which contained PM portable itself (it's half-empty tho, but still pretty annoying).
and after reinstalling of the system this thing still happening once I'm launching FF, making me think that it's lies somewhere in those old profile files?

how can I get rid of this?

(first system was Win 7 x32, made to x64, but that's pointless probably)

I'm not sure which extensions you're talking about, but in case you don't know, with version 57 of Firefox, they're going to a completely new concept called "web extensions". If the ones you use haven't been ported, they're going to break and, unless the dev makes the requisite changes, they're going to stay broken.
Bye-bye Firefox.

I thought I'd take a look and I only find basically two folders, profiles & crash report folders, within the "Moonchild Productions" folder as far as anything related to PM in the "AppData" file path:

My original PM install was started clean from around PMv25.

Regarding PM extensions, here is a Forum index > Browser Add-ons > Browser extensions topic link on this subject: Extension compatibility and Pale Moon.

More info on extension under Forum index > Browser Add-ons > Contributed extensions.

Also besides looking at the FF AMO site, you might want to take a look HERE for Pale Moon Extensions as well.

If you post a list of the extensions that you are finding incompatible with Pale Moon 27 then you might get help regarding some of these add-ons or perhaps suggestions for alternative compatible extensions that would do essentially the same thing.
