[REQ] CCleaner Help with Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

Request for help with CCleaner and Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird custom profile locations:

 

Here are the default install locations for Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird.

(On my PC, that's where they are.)

 

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird

 

Here are the default locations for their profile.ini files. (Windows 2000/XP)

(On my PC, that's where they are, and they are probably also here even if the programs were installed in custom locations.)

 

C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini

C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Thunderbird\profiles.ini

 

Here are the default locations for their profiles. (Windows 2000/XP)

 

C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profilename]

C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\[profilename]

 

But my profiles are stored in custom locations on another hard drive. These custom locations are indicated in the profiles.ini files.

 

L:\AdminFX\[profilename]

L:\AdminTB\[profilename]

 

Here are my customized profile.ini files.

 

IsRelative=0 means that the profiles are not stored in the default location

IsRelative=1 means that the profiles are stored in the default location

Default=1 indicates the last profile opened or used

 

My profiles.ini for Firefox

[General]

StartWithLastProfile=0

 

[Profile0]

Name=Ocean

IsRelative=0

Path=L:\AdminFX\Ocean

Default=1

 

[Profile1]

Name=Test1

IsRelative=0

Path=L:\AdminFX\Test1

My profiles.ini for Thunderbird

[General]

StartWithLastProfile=0

 

[Profile0]

Name=Mail

IsRelative=0

Path=L:\AdminTB\Mail

Default=1

 

[Profile1]

Name=News

IsRelative=0

Path=L:\AdminTB\News

 

Can something be written for me so that CCleaner can clean the normal Firefox/Thunderbird entries which are in winapp.ini and those in winapp2.ini?

 

There may be people who have installed Firefox/Thunderbird to custom locations. That would be another issue. Here are some examples.

 

C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox

C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Firefox

 

C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Mozilla Thunderbird

C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Thunderbird

 

Note: I briefly mentioned something about this in the Suggestions thread, but this post is much more detailed.
