One of our users has a problem with their Firefox profile.  We use

find the user's Firefox profile in their PROFILES sub directory tree. 
On their Windows 7p WS the tree to the profile is shown as:


On the Samba server there is no such directory.  In fact on the Samba

There is no Mozilla subdirectory listed and I cannot 'find' or 'ls -a'
one.  Where is this directory structure kept and how do I access it on
the Samba server host?
