    If you uninstall Firefox or Chrome, the Profile is not removed. I do this on every new release of Firefox. Flock is the same way.

    You can backup profiles just to be safe:

    Well you can use the software linked in the post to backup Chrome & Firefox profiles. As for Flock it appears to have been discontinued years ago. I don't know where the profile is stored.

    You can back up profiles to USB Flash Drive if you like.

    I see that it does backup Flock. I've used MozBackup in the past but developer states:


    Note   Note

    MozBackup is not being developed anymore. There are known issues and there is no time on my side to fix all issues and develop new features. Use MozBackup only on your risk


    Can you confirm that it still works with FF Quantum?

    Cheers.

    The userdata folder with all the browser profiles have already been moved from my old hard drive to the new hard drive so I am ready to just choose the profiles that I used on my old hard drive when I have installed the browsers I just need to know okay
