Default Import Firefox profile from Windows to Linux

Is it possible to import the Firefox profile folder (with extensions,
add-ons, preferences, etc) from a Windows install onto Fedora (FC 9),
without any loss of function?

If you are moving:

If you want to sync between win and lin, then a quick google found

This is on Ubuntu

This is older, but has workaround NTFS writing limitation in older
drivers; I don't know for certain that this is a problem of ancient
times in Fedora, but I suspect it is...

This is about syncing thunderbird on fedora and win.

I haven't tried it yet myself, though.
