Ok, so I've got a new laptop and want to know if I can copy over all of my firefox/browser settings to it? For instance, all of add-ons, settings, browsing history? I enjoy only having to hit 1 or 2 letters in the search bar & firefox always knowing what sites I want Thanks /firstworldproblems

Never done this personally, but hopefully the following will guide you perfectly.

    Good, inexpensive wine (not an oxymoron).

You can also simply copy the profile contents to the new computer once you have setup Firefox there. The profile under Windows 7 is in:


Under there you will see a folder similar to: e1a3rkar.default

Open that. Click Edit then Select All, then drag to a flash drive or if your two computers are networked simply drag the selected files and folders to the Firefox profile on the new computer.

Firefox cannot be running on either machine when you do this.
