Dear Liam Proven,
I have downloaded the Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit Live DVD ISO and
burned the ISO file to a DVD. I booted up the computer using Linux
Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit Live DVD and I am able to play 4K Ultra HD
MP4 videos instantly out of the box. All the multimedia codecs
including H.264 and H.265 were pre-installed. VLC media player also
comes pre-installed and I am able to play 4K Ultra HD MP4 videos while
copying data from my failing Toshiba 2 TB harddisk to my new Seagate 3
TB harddisk. Playback of 4K videos is extremely smooth because I am
using a super high end computer with Intel Core i7 5820K processor (6
cores, not quad core) and MSI X99A SLI Krait Edition USB 3.1
motherboard with the Intel X99 Express chipset. Most of the data (99%)
are intact and not corrupted. Only one 4K MP4 video file was corrupted
(Input/Output Error). As I have guessed much, most of the data (99%)
on the failing Toshiba 2 TB harddisk is not corrupted, just that the
servo or rotating mechanism is going to fail soon. I have managed to
copy all the data out from the failing Toshiba 2 TB harddisk to the
new Segate 3 TB harddisk except for the Firefox bookmarks and Firefox
How can I export the Firefox bookmarks and Firefox Saved Passwords
when I cannot start Windows 10 at all? Is there some kind of Firefox
or Mozilla profile directory containing the bookmarks and saved
passwords which I can copy out? In Linux, I know that the Firefox
profile directory is in /home/user/.mozilla but I am not aware of the
directory path in Windows 10.
Thank you very much for your attention and kind assistance.
