Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

Profile migration isn't rocket science. We're not talking about some homegrown browser with 2 devs, we're talking about a major consumer product.
Clearly they don't give a shit about this feature or otherwise it would already have been implemented.

Could be. Do you know of a similar piece of software that does this? Windows does not do this while they have billions.

a) The windows profile is much more complex than the Firefox profile (it least I hope so. It would not speak well of Firefox design otherwise)

b) you update Windows a lot less often than Firefox (so maybe MS do't care about this feature).
