Gecko Profile Folders - which one should I save?

Post by lefreak » Sat Mar 05, 2016 3:35 pm

I am confused about the gecko-folders... maybe I will need to create a fresh profile if I can't solve the problems with Yahoo/Netflix.

When looking inside the "extensions" folders of version 1 and 2, I would say that the first profile folder is the right one, but I don't know why I have the other one?
How can I save the actual settings I have on the about:config page and restore them after creating the new profile?

\Avant Profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles\r87bzlrw.default\
\Avant Profiles\.default\gecko\Profiles\p94lowqb.default\

I had that problem also... i had 3 profiles, so i installed the add-on "Profileswitcher" ... eswitcher/ and in the options of that add-on (after filling in the path to the Avant gecko) it shows which profile you're actually using now. further that add-on is useless for Avant, so i disabled it after knowing which profile i was using.

I deleted the other profiles.

Btw, i'm pretty sure \Avant Profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles\r87bzlrw.default\ is the right one for you.
