    Window Snapping (Desktop) & FireFox problem


    1. Win8 doesn't seem to handle snapping very well at all to be honest, but this is ridiculous.
    I'm in Desktop mode, and have one screen. I'm having a very hard time getting Win8 to remember my snapped windows settings on the Desktop.

    E.G. I have a windows explorer window snapped to the left half of the window, and a media player on the right half. I close the media player, or click next in the playlist, and it resizes the player window to meet the video dimensions rather than keep the snapped dimensions. Same with Explorer, it just opens new explorer windows dead center of the screen.




    2. I accidentally installed Windows 8 RP over the top of Win8 CP without backing up my firefox usernames/passwords. Is there any way to extract that information from the Program Files/Mozilla FireFox folder which is inside the Windows.old folder and import it into FF?

    For #2:

    Your firefox profile would be at
    C:\Windows.old\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\

    Copy/replace the profiles folder and profiles configuration file to
    C:\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\
