RE: [NTO] Firefox help
- One of my favorite bosses, 2 years older than I from China, could read
binary code. I was always impressed with that, given even that was a bit
before "our time."
My sister is a big wheel with Nexteria. She was hiring and wanted someone
with a degree in computers, 10 years' experience, and all kinds of stuff.
At the time, I had to remind her that 10 years previously, there WERE no
degrees in computers. Would she rather have a kid with a degree that didn't
help him function outside a classroom, or someone working for 10 years who
had a degree in Medieval Studies (like me), who took classes, workshops,
seminars, and built computers and programmed? Life experience vs. theory.
To her credit, she rethought her hiring criteria and got someone quite
Interesting, isn't it?
The Firefox release notes have some good information:
The profile folder is located on these versions of Windows, by default
(It can be specified at another location):
Windows 2000, XP Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application
Windows NT WINNT\Profiles\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 98, ME Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
There is a profiles.ini, and pluginreg.dat and the directory with a
"salted" name for each user in the Firefox directory as listed above.
When you re-install Firefox, just copy the profile folder to the desired
location, and you should be good to go.
