Couldn't find it, so I ran updateb with the old drive mounted.
key4.db shows up in several places, but it looks like the one I might
want is one of these two:
this one as its the biggest by quite a bit
/home/gene/.mozilla/firefox/73t2g4uq.default/key4.db except its on this
drive? But copying it over from the old drive didn't seem to do a thing,
and neither did copying logins.json. Firefox has changed a lot since
So I guess I'll have to shutdown, swap cables to make sdb into sda , boot
wheezy and see if I can con it into printing all that stuff, I need my
bookmarks-toolbar to make it complete too. Sigh. Tomorrows project, its
about time to go scare a couple pork chops to death with a hot skillet.
