Wow, was this convenient! Worked like a charm. I had one issue, however, my intuition (only intuition as I'm an old, not very techy guy) solved the problem. After I'd updated to v28.0.1 I had only opened it sandboxed. Cyberfox profile was not showing up in the Profile Buddy GUI. I disabled Sandboxie, opened Cf 25.0.1 one time and there it was in Profile Buddy.
My Cyberfox appears and functions exactly the way it always did. Profile Buddy is so efficient, Cyberfox even has the new Ff 29 cache option, that I enabled in Ff this morning, enabled. Thank you again! ... 1570488335
