Same goes for importing from older FF/WF on new WF install.
It doesn't delete addons (but resets settings of half of those) and sure thing leaves something else because on a freshly new profile I don't have a specific addon's bug while on 'refreshed' profile I keep getting that bug.

I think this is due to the ‘Refresh’ setting utilising the profile import file, which I will rewrite to perform better as at the moment it’s not so great. I am aware of this issue :-)

Thank you. Do you know about a bug in profile import file that (at least in my case) it imported only first out of 3 profiles from Firefox' ~Roaming folder? Or it isn't considered a bug?

Things are hugely improved in recent releases.

@AjvarXX would you like to (backup your data then) test with 56.1.0?

Also: Waterfox 56.2.0 Test Builds! Please give it a whirl. : waterfox
