    Adding Firefox favorites to another machine

    I used to know how to copy my favorites and passwords to another computer, but I see nothing that looks familiar any longer. How do I do this? I want to copy all my settings from this machine to a laptop that I also use.

    I always copy the entire profiles for Firefox & Thunderbird after housecleaning cache2 which seems to have many useless files that make copy slow.

    Exclude from backup
    /cache2
    /OfflineCache
    /safebrowsing
    /settings
    /startupCache
    /thumbnails

    Your default location for profile is in a hidden folder. Change settings in browser to show hidden files to view profile.

    Firefox > History > Show All History > Import and Backup
