Hello: what is the name of the dir where things like prefs, bookmarks & cookies are stored? I looked for "floodgap" and "tenfourfox" & a few more spellings etc. but didn't find the place. (Had to reinstall OS & have old sysfiles to pull from -- if I could find their names & loci w/in the oldOS...). Thank you.

    This is your profile folder. See the Help! Where Do I Begin?? article for the Firefox knowledge base article on its location:

    So that people can transition from 3.6 to TenFourFox, TenFourFox intentionally uses the same profile folder 3.6 did.
