[SOLVED] Import from Firefox 12

Unread post by Sajjan » 2012-05-06, 02:13

I have Firefox 12. I have installed Pale moon 12 Portable.

Is there any way to import complete and all settings from Firefox 12 (normal) to Pale moon 12 Portable.

Thanks in advance.

You can use Firefox Sync to synchronize your two installations.

If you just want a one-shot copy, you can do it manually:
  1. On your desktop install, go to help > troubleshooting information
  2. Click the "Open folder" button under profile. This opens an explorer window in your profile.
  3. Close Pale Moon. !!IMPORTANT!!
  4. Select all files and folders (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C)
  5. Browse your explorer to the user profile folder of Pale Moon Portable. {portable install folder}\User\Palemoon\Profiles\Default\
  6. Paste everything there (Ctrl+V)
