Hey guys.

I am currently waiting for my new computer, it should be with me within the week.

However, I would like to transfer my Mozila Firefox 2.0 plus all my settings, themes and plugins.

I have tried a program called 'Moz backup' or something similar in the past, however, I have found that it doesn't always work.

Is there another way to transfer all my information?

Nice thing about Firefox:

Find your current profile folder, copy everything from it.
On the new computer with a new Firefox profile, dump everything from the old Profile folder into the new one.
As if by magic, its as if you never left. Everything goes, extensions, favourites, history, theme - everything.

The plug-ins are a different matter but you can download those again from the web for newer versions anyway.
