Firefox Question


Recommended Posts

I searched this title but only came up with one thing and it was different.


My firefox just screwed up for some reasons so i exited and then went back in and it asked me which profile I wanted to use. I had only used to default on but i figured i might as well make my own now. So i clicked "New Profile" and made one. Now I dont have any of my bookmarks, themes, or extensions. So how do I get back to the default profile?

Exit Firefox again. Bring up the task manager; ctrl+alt+del and click on the Processes tab

Find firefox.exe and click End Task....tip it helps to click on the Image Name column to sort it by name.

Next time you want to use firefox, go to start > run and try firefox.exe -profile or

firefox.exe -ProfileManager . Those should start firefox with the page you earlier, and you can just select default again.

Just to be safe you can also click Bookmarks > Manage bookmarks

Then when the bookmark manager opens click File > Export and save the Bookmarks.html file somewhere on your PC.

Then if you lose it you can import them. I think there is also an extension that will make sure you don't lose your bookmarks and settings, even after a crash. I just can't remember what it's called.

I tried all that but none of it works. I guess I'll just have to start all over.
