Where does Mozilla profile located?

Windows

On Windows the profile data is per default located in:

Mozilla SeaMonkey

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Profiles\[profile name]\[random string].slt\
On a English Windows 2000/XP that's normally:
c:\Documents and Settings\[Windows Login Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\[profile name]\[random string].slt\

Mozilla Firefox

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile name]\
On a English Windows 2000/XP that's normally:
c:\Documents and Settings\[Windows Login Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile name]\

Mac OS

On Macintosh the profile data is located in For Mac OS 9:
system disk::Documents::Mozilla::Profiles::[profile name]::[random string].slt
For Mac OS X:

Mozilla SeaMonkey

~/Library/Mozilla/Profiles/[profile name]/[random string].slt

Mozilla Firefox

~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[random string].default/

Camino

~/Library/Application Support/Camino/

Linux

On Linux the profile data is located in:
~/.mozilla/[Linux Login Name]/[randowm string].slt/

What is the [random string].slt all about?

As an extra security measure Mozilla adds a random string to the path of the profile. This makes it a bit harder for vira/etc to obtain the path of the profile. For more information see bug 56002.

Other ways to find your Mozilla profile

If you still can't find your Mozilla profile you can do a search for any of the following files:
  • prefs.js
  • bookmarks.html
  • localstore.rdf
