Re: [tor-talk] copying old profile to new Aurora not working

You're still doing it wrong, man.

As I said the last time you shot yourself in the foot doing this
copying the wrong way

  I would recommend just overwriting your old TBB dir with the new data.
  Sometimes we change prefs+create new ones, which could cause bugs for
  you when you copy old-over-new.
  If there are a lot of prefs you need to change, you (or we) might also
  be doing it wrong. Might I ask which ones you need to keep?

Thus spake Joe Btfsplk (joebtfsplk@xxxxxxx):
