I followed your steps exactly, installing ESR portable in a new folder, and copying the full profile folder from FF57 over to ESR's profile folder.
The ESR portable version definitely picked up some of my profile, because it has my bookmarks bar and other customization.
Unfortunately, it appears that it has taken my Firefox environment back in time few months. I recognize the tabs from what I was working on over the summer.
All history is missing, too. Furthermore, the extensions that were disabled by FF57 are still disabled in ESR, with no apparent way to re-enable them, including NoScript.
I was really hoping they were serious about NoScript for 57 "by the end of the week" - maybe we'll still see it in the next 12 hours or so.
Checked and I might have been too hasty, I'll have to dig some deeper.
But this works and gets you on the way for the moment:
- 57: Save your open tabs in a new directory in bookmarks and export as html (via show all bookmarks => export).
- Portable: import this html-file (via show all bookmarks => import) and select the created directory with the open tabs and choose "open all in tabs" (I'm using a dutch version, so bad translation)
- Portable: if buttons in the interface are missing, just open customize and restore to default.
