Open your Firefox profile folder from FF 3.0+

In some instances you might have to copy files to your Firefox (or SeaMonkey for that matter) web browser's "profile". The trouble is often finding that profile, as, for security reasons, the name of the folder is a string of random characters created at the time you created your "user profile".

An extension by some Japanese fellow is available, but he stopped updating it -along with much of his web page it seems- shortly after the Firefox 2.x release.


As a result, his extension refuses to install on Firefox 3.0, 3.01 and beyond. I did a quick tweak and fixed it. It works beautifully in Firefox 3.01.


Find my modded XPI extension over here.

Of course, as 99.9% of all XPI extensions, this is cross-platform and works on Windows as well as Linux.
