Chapter 4. Managing Profiles > Importing Profile Information

Importing Profile Information

The easiest way to import profile information is to copy the entire profile. Sometimes, though, that is not what you want—perhaps you want only part of the profile or want to withhold parts (such as cached user IDs and passwords). You can successfully copy certain files from one profile to another. These files include

  • bookmarks.html—This file contains all your bookmarks.

  • cookies.txtAll cookies are stored in this file. Manage your cookies by selecting Tools, Options, Privacy, Cookies (expand), View Cookies.

  • hostperm.1Originally called cookieperm.txt, this file contains information about a site’s cookie saving privileges.

  • key3.dbFirefox stores site logon information in this file.

  • user.js—This contains your user configuration.

  • prefs.js—This contains initial configuration information.

  • XUL.mflThis file is the cache for both chrome and JavaScript (it’s called XUL.mfasl in Linux and OS/X).

  • chrome/userContent.css—This contains your content display configuration.

  • chrome/userChrome.css—Your browser display configuration is kept here.
