In trying to make two separate Firefox profiles via Firefox profiles 'create profile'.  Well my current Firefox was replaced by a blank Firefox.  No tabs, bookmarks, nothing.  I have a recently synced Firefox on my iPhone.  How do I get it FROM my iPhone ONTO my Windows 10 Pro PC?

That's not for syncing profiles. That just allows you to share (or save) a link to the app on the App Store.

 

Firefox has it's own ability to sync parts of your user profile. It's built in to the Firefox app and the desktop version of Firefox as well. No need to use Dropbox for that.

How is this related to Dropbox? Firefox has it's own sync ability which is separate from Dropbox. Is that what you're using or are you somehow trying to use Dropbox for that purpose? If so, how?

I was trying to use Dropbox because on my iPhone when I press on Firefox for a bit it brings up some options.  One was to "Share".  When I tapped that, one of the options was to "send to Dropbox".  I tapped that but can't find anything in my Dropbox.  Obviously, I'm doing something wrong.  I out of my realm on this whole f*ck-up.
