Friends of mine "solved" that problem by bypassing it via

Hello, all!

I am trying to share Firefox profiles between Gutsy and XP Pro and have
created a separate FAT32 partition that both OSs can see.


I have googled and searched the archives and found three sets of directions.
None worked.**It is not my box, and I think it possible that the owner has
done something weird and wonderful to his XP installation.


Be that as it may, the files I was supposed to be moving/linking to in XP were
simply not where the directions said that they would be.**In fact, the
folders they were said to be in did not exist.**I did use "find" and moved

the Profiles file that was all I could find, but that had no effect at all.
It didn't even break anything, in spite of the absence of links.

Has anyone actually done this recently?**If so, how?

Failing that, how do I transfer Firefox profiles from XP to Gutsy?**"Import"

does not offer browse as an option, merely tells me that it can't find any IE
files :-( .

TIA
Lisi
