firefox extension help
    #3794617 - 02/17/05 07:31 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i'll be reformatting my computer tomorrow. is there any way to find my installed extentions and drag them to another drive, then just drag back once everything is reinstalled? or, do i have to hunt them down again?

this isnt just for extensions either. i have already backed up my bookmarks, but how can i save the way i have my browser set up?

Backup "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox" and also backup the folder firefox was installed to. That should preserve most everything, but you may have to reinstall a few plugins.

yeah, just backup your profile & the program files folder...as described.

a clean profile is always nice, however.
