    Default Trying to migrate to 11.3 from 11.1 Firefox "locked"

    I am statring with a clean install of 11.3
    I deleted the default folder from .mozzila and dropped in the default folder from my /backup drive with all my cookies, booklmarks, history,extensions. Now Firefox will not start. It says it's locked. I went and found the lock file in the folder. It still will not open and says it's locked.

    The UID has been changed to so the ownership of the file is correct.

    I hope I am not stuck on 11.1 for ever if I want to keep my Firefox and years worth of thunderbird email due to some stupid branding issues

    Using a really old Mandriva install to access the internet.

    If you try this again, I've done 3 systems 11.1->11.3 and pretty much
    everything came across with a straight update - including FireFox setup. No
    screwing around required - just make sure you close everything before ypou
    shut down to initiate the install. The only things I needed to copy were
    from the KDE apps is .kde to the appropriate folder in .kde4.

    Much, much better results than upgrading 11.1 -> 11.2. I gave that up as a
    lost cause early on.
