How can I change where firefox stores the logs?

I run 'Fox on a flash drive, because it allows me to keep my history, bookmarks, etc. all together while using ' Fox on several different computers.

I learned recently that Firefox was leaving newspapers on the hard drives of each computer, that I ran it, even from the flash drive. It is a bad idea to several points of view, including privacy and security, so I want to configure my software to write all these newspapers directly in the flash player that I run on, nothing is placed on the computer HARD disk.

How can I do this? For completeness, the path where Firefox is writing information looks something like one of the following:

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Mozilla
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp

  • can I redirect where firefox stores the data (bookmarks, cookies, etc...)

    I am currently using a product called Deep Freeze on my desk that resets the computer on the setting "frozen" to reboot. The issue I'm having is that I can't remember bookmarks, history, cookies and other data when browsing with Firefox. I was able to redirect IE but can't seem to find a way to do that easily with Firefox.

    You can do this by creating a new profile and choose a custom for the profile folder location.

    To create a new profile to follow the instructions in the article create a new profile for Firefox on Windows , but in last step, you click on the button Choose a folder to specify where the profile is kept.

    A warning regarding where you create this profile folder.

    (Copied from the mozillazine knowledge base) A profile folder is not automatically created when you choose the location of the folder to your new Firefox profile. Any file you select becomes the profile folder. If you want to choose a location for your new profile, do not select a folder that contains existing data. You must create an empty folder (preferably with the same name as the new profile) and then select that folder in the Profile Wizard. Note: If your operating system does not provide a "New folder" button in the Profile Wizard, you must manually create the new folder.

    If the folder that you select for the new profile contains files non-Mozilla (for example "my documents" on Windows), your profile data will be be mixed with non-Mozilla data. This can result in the loss of all the data in this file, including the non-Mozilla files, if you subsequently delete the profile.

    For more information about the Profile Manager and using profiles see Profile Manager - MozillaZine Knowledge Base and use the Profile Manager to create and delete profiles Firefox.

  • Where Firefox stores the images as wallpaper?

    Where Firefox stores the images as wallpaper? I was playing around with windows theme and I can not find the wallpaper that was displayed before.

    According to me, the question that arises is, "where Firefox stores a picture that I have a right click and choose «Set as wallpaper...»» » »

    I have not changed my background in over a year, and I use Windows XP, so maybe this isn't true for the new versions of Firefox or Windows, but I found my background image under "\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Desktop Background.bmp C:\Documents and Settings\current user." Of course, replace the current user with your Windows user name.

    Hello Donna, sorry you're in trouble. I wanted to make sure you have Firefox set as default browser on Windows? We have here an article that walks through how to do it:
    https://support.Mozilla.com/en-us/KB/how+to+make+Firefox+the+default+browser

    If you have Firefox by default, it could be a registry problem that would need to be configured.

    I hope this helps.
