    I need help on how to transfer Firefox cookies to another OS

    Cookies are stored in the cookies.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder.

    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

    • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Open Containing Folder

    That's why I suggested this for starters, for the issue you report:Firefox container options :)

    Firefox - Profile in Use

    Scroll down on that page to the "Solutions" section.
    The easiest way is to open the Windows Task Manager and to kill the Firefox process from there.
    If that does not work, then proceed to the next steps in that tutorial: remove the "profile lock" file, etc.

    Please let us know how that goes.

    Thanks,
    MM

    Hi:

    In addition to the great advice already offered....

    ...Most problems with Firefox originate in the user's profile, not in the program itself.

    A specific suggestion for the issue you report:

    Firefox - Profile in Use

    Then, there is a logical sequence for Firefox diagnostics, which (as already suggested) generally starts with Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode):

    Firefox - Standard Diagnostic

    or
    Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems


    Resetting Firefox (as already suggested) is certainly a reasonable option, but there are other, less "destructive" steps one might consider first.
    There are also more drastic steps, such as creating a new profile. This is sometimes the best way to get back up and running, if the existing profile is highly corrupted.

    Please let us know if you need more help.

    Thanks,
    MM
