Ive searched google and also this site, but i cant seem to find out the name o f the file that adblock saves the rules list in.

the reason i need this is because my previous firefox profile no longer works, so i had to create a new profile. ive managed to import the user settings from the old profile, now im reinstalling the extensions but would like to be able to find my old adblock rules list so i can import it or copy it over the new one, but cant seem to find it,

can anyone help?

thanks in advance,

steve

Exporting your rules list after making updates can save you time should this happen to you again in the future. After you have successfully exported your list, you can simply import them later.
