The name of my profile appears in the list, but when I select it, mozilla says my profile cannot be found. Mozilla really needs a better way to manage profiles. When mozilla complained that a profile was missing, It gave me three options (None of them usefull in my case): "New Profile", "Remove Profile", and "Rename Profile". Why not "Add" or "Edit"? Needs some work yo! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create profile. 2. Change home directory. 3. Try to get mozilla to use your profile by using the GUI that will pop up when you run it next. Actual Results: The mozilla GUI appeared asking me to select a profile. The name of my profile shows up in the list. When I select it, an error window appears saying it cannot find my profile. There is no option to tell mozilla that the profile has moved. Expected Results: It should have an "Edit" Option to let me select the location (file name) of my profile since mozilla cound not find it.
there's a bug about the fact that profiles don't store relative paths. there's a bug about moving profiles. i believe there's a bug about changing where a profile points. there's definitely a bug about importing a profile.
May be duplicate of one of import enhancement requests- bug 17457, bug 22689, bug 87145 I think bug 22689 fits here relative path bug is bug 12911- which is verified but needs bug 137006 for completion by mail *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 22689 ***
