View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] From mozilla Xp to mozilla linux, can i transfer usernames/password??

September 23rd, 2008, 02:49 AM
my presentation:
i m a new user of linux (french newborn of 3 days :D)
and when doing the transfer i decided to format my hard disk.. so no xp any more, and i m decided also to learn "la console" ..

My question:
Before doig the transfert i saved the mozilla folder, and also the "cache" .. wich contains (i believe) all my accounts on many website ..

So is there a way to transfer theses data to mozilla linux??

thanks in advance :KS

Copy C:\Documents and Settings\lastwho\Application Data\Mozilla Firefox to /home/lastwho/.mozilla and everything should copy over (cache, passwords, history, bookmarks, etc.)
