Chapter 4. Managing Profiles > Locating Your Profile

Locating Your Profile

Each user typically has a personal profile located in a predefined location, depending on the operating system. The following list shows the profile settings for a number of operating system platforms:

  • Windows XP/2000— Profile files are typically located in the folder %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\. With Windows Explorer, go to C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\, where [User Name] is the user whose profile you are navigating to. (Note that Application Data is normally a hidden file, so you must turn on the hidden file display to see it.)

  • Windows 95, 98, and Me— The profile files are often located in C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\. Because these versions of Windows do not properly support multiple users, only one profile is stored.

  • Linux— Look for the folder path ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/.

  • Mac OS X— Look for the folder path ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/xxxxxxxx.default/.
