The Pale Moon Project - Custom-built and optimized Firefox browsers for Windows Operating Systems

Pale Moon profile migration tool

This tool will help you migrate a Mozilla Firefox profile to Pale Moon.
This tool may not work for everyone, since it has a few important limitations:
  1. This tool only works for the default profile locations for Firefox and Pale Moon
  2. This tool does not work for portable versions of either browser
  3. This tool may not work well on limited accounts on Windows Vista.
It was put together mainly for people who have standard installations and as a convenient aid for people who do not have enough knowledge of the Windows O.S. and filesystem to manually copy the profiles over. It is not meant to be very versatile or flexible at this moment, but "gets the job done" in most cases.

Current version: 1.4.0 (2014-04-08)
This version update should solve any permission errors while copying, and addresses a problem with incorrect profile paths on non-admin accounts when elevating privileges.

Note: Please close both Firefox and Pale Moon before attempting to migrate your profiles. Not doing so may cause an incomplete transfer or give errors.

If this tool, for whatever reason, doesn't work for you, please check the Troubleshooting section on this site for instructions on how to manually copy over a profile.

This tool is provided to you as FREEWARE. Unlike the pale Moon browser, this tool is not open source and the source will not be made available. 2009-2014 M.C. Straver.
