KB article: Profile folder contents
As discussed at <http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla.support.planning/browse_frm/thread/cfcbf66322a7f24c>, we should have an article that lists the folders and files in the Firefox profile folder, with a description/purpose of each file. Put the folders first. A couple of references for layout/approach: http://seamonkey.ilias.ca/profilefaq/#files http://gemal.dk/mozilla/files.html
I was stuck in a computer lab for an hour due to a snow storm and knocked out a first draft of this: http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Profile+folder+contents Comments: * I grouped the files by function. I think this is much more useful than an alphabetical list, but I could be wrong * The sub-sections for User data might be overkill * I tried to link to an article that's relevant to the file wherever possible * I wasn't sure how much to duplicate of the Profiles article in the introduction * Should we include how to find the profile folder here too? It's kind of a dumb hoop to jump through for users if we include a link, but that's what I have up for now * There's some repetition, which might be annoying if you read it all the way through - "It will be regenerated if it is deleted," two links to ((Web forgery)), ((Search bar)) * This is for Firefox 2 right now
Great work, Bo! Someone should lock you up in a computer lab for good. ;) I made some changes to the opening paragraphs (removed the first one, and shortened the other one). I think this makes it more concise, but feel free to object and change the wording. Moved to KB. Thank you!
