I gave up trying to re-use ~/.mozilla directories
across releases a while back as something always seems
to go wrong. Instead I just create a new one from scratch
and then copy over the file:


(from where I saved the old ~/.mozilla). That gets
all my bookmarks back, which is the only thing I
really need. I don't have a large number of extensions,
and I just reinstall the ones I need.
