I have Firefox on Ubuntu 10.10. I added another profile to Firefox in the last two weeks. Firefox gave me the option to choose between the different profiles, but now it will not login automatically. So how can I restore bookmarks or the other profile for Firefox. Any suggestion will be appreciated.
You have to choose which profile to start. The way to do so
Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.
and make sure that you do not have a check mark in Don`t ask at startup
Now, to restore your bookmarks, or copy the old profile to the new profile, do this:
Go into the original profile, press
Ctrl+Shift+O on your keyboard to open the bookmark window
click on Import and Backup, and choose Backup
Then choose the file name and location of the file.
Now, to restore the bookmarks, follow the same steps, but instead of Backup, choose Restore, and pick the file that you backed up
To recover a deleted profile:
Using the Profile Manager to recover a profile
If another profile folder exists with data you want to recover, you can use the Profile Manager to create a new profile that will use the profile folder containing your missing data. For complete information See this site
