We are taking the some computer that were part of one domain and now have joined them to a new domain. I have some users that can have bookmarks /favorites in different browsers including Firebox, IE, Chrome.  Now that they are on the new domain , they can log into the old profile and export the bookmarks or favorites. Never the less, the old profile data is there. Anyway to copy this data to the new profile. Internet Explorer is easy as I have simply copied the favorites folder and then  past in same location in the new profile , but I did not figure out firefox and chrome  . These are mostly Windows 7 . Thank you,

For Chrome, you simply copy c:\users\<username>\appdata\local\google\chrome\default to the same location on the new domain.
For Firefox, it's c:\users\<username>\appdata\roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and you want the folder which ends in .default; however, restoring it is a little tricky so here is an article though the run -> ā€œ%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ command is erroneous:
