I have just installed Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit version & also installed Firefox. I saved my profiles folder from XP so that I could keep all my bookmarks. The thing is, I don't know where the profiles location actually is in Windows Vista.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

bookmarks.html in your Profile folder:
http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/profile#locate

.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

Read this..... http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folde ... dows_Vista Your bookmarks are kept in Bookmarks.html (For backups look in the BookmarkBackups folder)

Another, easier way is to use the Bookmarks Manager....
In XP Go to Bookmarks > Organise Bookmarks then File > Export..... and then save the HTML file to the location of your choice.
In Vista Go to Bookmarks > Organise Bookmarks then File > Import > From File ... then retrieving the file from above.

If you want to drop your XP Prifile in, the best way is to create a new profile, then overwrite it with the contents of the profile you are moving.

I hope that you saved the contents of the correct folder (Aplication Data is hidden in windows XP).

In Vista your profile is here: "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\"

You need to enable some settings: "AppData" is a hidden folder in Vista.
"Organize > Folder and Search Options > Folder Options > View (tab) > Show hidden files and folders"
