I have added new users to Windows XP. In each of these new accounts the Firefox addons have disappeared.?

Recently I have added new user accounts to Windows XP. Since then I have been experiencing numerous problems regarding the use of Mozilla Firefox. All bookmarks, add-ons and customizations have disappeared completely. I've solved the bookmarks problem by importing my old bookmarks list into my new account. In addition customizing Firefox to back my likings was a breeze. However the problem of the missing add-ons remains. I've painstakingly been searching Google for the missing add-ons are re-downloading them one by one.

This brings me to my question. Is there a way to copy Firefox add-ons from one XP account to another? Can I somehow copy add-on files from their location in one users account to another? If such a feat were possible it would save immense quantity of time and reduce my download usage. Help is much appreciated.


Answer

Who said copying addons files will copy the addons itself.
If you are sure of that, you can do this:
1- Open the Documents and settings, you will see a folder for each of the users
2- Open the main user (The one that was active when you installed the addons), then go to Application Data folder
3- search in there for the firefox addons files (It should be there in the folder named "firefox" or something like that)
4- If you found nothing there, try the folder "Local Settings" then "Application Data"
5- Copy it into the exact place in all of the users folders
6- restart computer and try again

I still can not think that copying these files will enable them into firefox, any way, you can try

Firefox 2.0 wine installation problem?

I am trying to upgrade to Firefox 2.0 on my openSUSE 10.2 and when I launch the installer, it comes to the page where you select where you want to install the files and it doesnt matter where I select, it always gives me "You don't have sufficient disk space to install in this location, Please click ok to select another"


Answer

This message comes up when you are trying to install in a full hard drive.
Make sure that your C drive (Or wherever you are installing in) is not full and have the space in the program recommandation
Try install in another hard drive.
If you have only one, then clear some data from it then try again
