Hi guys

I need to re-install Vista as my system files have become corrupt and updates are failing, I have my installation disc now and am ready to bite the bullet, anyhow I cannot find precise info about keeping my firefox settings, favourites etc etc as they are, via google.

Will I lose all my downloaded apps i.e, anti-virus, spyware, etc etc.

I have put all my music, photos and personal stuff on a flash drive.

Thanks Tony.

Backup c:\users//appdata/roaming/mozilla/

after reinstall, install firefox, then delete the folder it creastes, and copy your backup into same directory.

Use 'opera' 10.50 "The fastest browser on earth"
http://www.opera.com/browser/next/
then export the setting from firefox to opera then save your opera settings somewhere lol

If only firefox extensions worked in opera, firefox is getting buggy and hungry of late, but I need firefox as it runs the moderation plugin I use for freecycle. Without that it takes a lot longer to do my stuff as all cross checking has to be done manually.

Another showstopper is Roboform will not work with opera either.

Sorry to break it to you, but I'm not wrong.

[B]Also, Opera are a bunch of whiney nobheads who cry to the EU (and others) because their browser is even worse than IE


Order:

Chrome
Firefox <--- I need live bookmarks so use my second fave.
IE
Safari
Opera[/B]
