Last update was in 2011. Seems like the author is gone.
The icon is working, but not the menu item. Useful, but breaks multi-process
Not working on FF 53.0a1, menu item does nothing, options dialog don't work, not sure since what (recent) version this behavior is happening. Also I'm missing it for Thunderbird.
Alternatively, this can do the work outside the menus https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/profile-folder-button/
Otherwise, a great extension when it works.
Stable, simple, does what it says
Good add-on, which would rate 5 Stars if more usage and settings information were available. Please include more information in the Open Profile Folder 1.3.3 section. Please use English language in the image that appears in the middle section. Please include more Open Profile Folder, Usage, and Settings information in the About this Add-on section. Please use English language for all information that appears when a user clicks the Add-on home page link. Thank you
I was searching for my profile folder and spend about half an hour trying to figure out where it was. It seems like I had two profile folders, AppData\Local\Mozilla\... and AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\... This addon pointed out the second one to me. Saved me from frustration.
Nice to know that the option to open in an application of choice was added in version 1.3, though I will still be using system default. Firefox 3.6 will introduce Help -> Troubleshooting Information to identify profile, which will work in Safe Mode, but nothing beats using this small extension to actually get to your profile.
much needed. now my theme users can find the profile directory simply to apply the subskins.
* MR Tech tool kit says we have this option built and and shall we uninsll this like. but i did not find such option ??? any way, tools > open profile folder is really smart !
Heh, I actually had a shortcut on my desktop to the profile folder ......... boy, how primitive I feel now! Hehehehe. Many thanks for this useful extension!
Invaluable little extension.
Would not be without it.
Recent upgrade much appreciated
Thanks for the update Kyo.
One of the more useful FF add-ons.
Doesn't seems to work on my Linux box
for the update. I find this addon most useful.
For Firefox 3:
Will this be updated for 3.xxxxx?
I would like to have this for FF 3 :)
I just found this nice tool, before I moved to version 3. Are you going to update the Add-on to Firefox 3.
Does it's job and does it well. This allows you quick access to your profile folder on your computer. Sure this feature is already built into some extensions, but if you need this feature without a million other things thrown it (i.e. bloatness), get Open Profile Folder.
What's not advertised though is you can use this add-on to quickly make a backup copy or your profile folder in the event your profile ever corrupts and loses some of your data. Then all you do is boot your corrupt profile out and replace it with the backup. This add-on makes backupping/replacing a snap.
Though please be careful when in your profile folder. If you mess with things you see, you may wreck your profile and have to either replace it or make a brand new profile from scratch. Anyways despite the potential risks, I give this a 10. Very useful add-on.
