Hi, how can I avoid having to reconfigure my Firefox Portable profile during my downgrade migration from 69.0.2 to 68 ESR?

you can try but create a backup of profile before. v69 is different o v68. any downgrade has it risks.
delete the "compatibility.ini" in profile!

I've tried copying the profile but when launching the non-esr 68.0 portable firefox, it warns me that it's risky and only gives me the option to close the browser, instead of going ahead.
Is this resolved by deleting compatibility.ini?

Deleting or renaming compatibility.ini should allow it to run with the 69 profile. If it does not, maybe also rename installs.ini.

Couldn't find installs.ini, but deleting compatibility.ini did eliminate the warning. Thank you.
