Talk about Mozilla browsers for small devices such as PDAs and cellphones.

Is it possible to install the Firefox profile from a Desktop Win7 to a an Android Tablet?
And if yes... how?

Don't believe you can. However, you could use Firefox Sync to send passwords, bookmarks, history, etc from your Win 7 Firefox installation to your Android one. That's what I did a while back.

Firefox Sync

How do I set up Sync on my computer?

Yes... that is what I want. The question was hoe to do it!

However a new problem has come up: Every Ff for Android I try, none can be installed as the tablet has a 64bit system.
Is there such a Firefox?

Thanks

Thank you, Dan, Got It...

That saved my life... I have this horrible Chuwi Hi10 tablet, and as I stupidly not bought it from Amazon, I cannot return it. So I have to find ways around the multitude of problems.

Is it possible to move the Ff profile from my Win Desktop to the Ff on the Android part of the tablet?

as stated before: NO.
sync is the only option.

for extensions - drop klar/focus and go fennec.
