Sorry, this post is off-topic, but this is usually a pretty helpful forum.

I want to make the shift to Linux. I'm currently using Mozilla on Windows. My shift to Linux will be gradual. One of the things I'd like to be able to do is to use Mozilla (mail, bookmarks, etc.) in both Linux and Windows and use the same profile in both systems. So I would configure my Linux Mozilla to get my profile from a mounted Windows drive. Does anyone know if this is possible? Will it cause problems? Thanks for your help.
