From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010109 BuildID: 2001010901 my user preferences prefs.js &c are located in C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users50\sds\kyxfxk51.slt\mjgqyx89.slt\1t89vl74.slt\auubw6mj.slt\mla2fchh.slt\6haxezub.slt and there appears to be no way to move them to a more regular location, like C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users50\sds\ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: create a new profile. files are created in C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users50\sds\kyxfxk51.slt\mjgqyx89...... move the files to C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users50\sds\ the stupid kyxfxk51.slt... are re-created. Actual Results: many levels of directories with strange names were created Expected Results: I expect the location of my prefs.js to be reasonable.
looks like bug 60799, which in turn was a dup of bug 60182. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 60182 ***
in fact this is a duplicate/result of bug 56002 Make path to profile dir unpredictable yes we should definitely not continuously salt salted directory names...
this means that I have no control as to where prefs.js go. interesting. so how am I supposed to backup it? can I disable this *.slt nightmare? thanks.
