Transfer Firefox Settings to New Computer

September 25th, 2009 by elizar

How do you transfer all the nice little Firefox settings, bookmarks, plugins and addons that you already have on your old computer to your new one? I’m sure there must be some configuration file somewhere in your program files or the code of firefox itself, but for use not so fluent with firefox, we can use 3rd party tools.

Firefox Extension Backup Extension (FEBE)

FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In
fact, it goes beyond just backing up — It will actually rebuild your
extensions individually into installable .xpi files. Now you can easily
synchronize your office and home browsers.
FEBE backs up your extensions, themes, and (optionally) your bookmarks,
preferences, passwords, cookies and just about everything else Firefox
offers (it can even backup/restore your entire profile).

Backups can be performed on demand or scheduled for daily, weekly, or
monthly unattended runs.

Here’s how to install and use FireFTP on Firefox.
