I got a laptop for christmas and copied the Firefox folder on my old computer and transferred it to my new one, but the file is now read only. In fact, the entire program files folder is. I want to use firefox, but not if i can't save stuff to my profile (extensions, themes, bookmarks). Any way to change it from read only? I have already unchecked the Read-only box on the properties window, and it asks me if i want to change just that folder, or all of the sub folder too, and i have tried both of them on the Mozilla Firefox folder, and Program files, but when i go back to the properties window, it is still read-only.

You need to "install" the Firefox program, you cannot just "copy" it across.

You should be able to copy bookmarks etc however.
